Do you ever wonder, somewhere deep in your heart, if all those things the nuns or your Sunday school teacher taught you are really true? Does doubt ever taunt you, whispering in the silence, “I just don’t believe all that stuff anymore ...”? Do you hold close the unspoken worry of what will really happen to you when you die? It is easy to feel God in the flowers of spring, the solitude of a world blanketed in snow, or the laughter of children at play. It is never hard to imagine the hand of our Creator in the sunrise over the ocean, the majesty of the Rockies, or the billions of stars visible on a clear night in the country. What of the dark times, though? Where is God when your business fails, or you lose your job, or a loved one is injured in an accident or diagnosed with cancer and dies? Is God there when you struggle to make ends meet, when your child is hurt in a fall or, when you think yourself alone and abandoned? When Jesus said, “With God all things are possible,” He meant it. We pray that by sharing our ordinary lives, our extraordinary God will bless and encourage you.

Would you like a devotional that speaks from experience, from the heart, and goes directly to the point? Jody Neufeld shares from her heart "ordinary moments with an Extraordinary God". Upon her retirement from nursing and into ministry with her husband Henry, a Bible teacher, Jody felt the Lord urging her to share a daily devotion with people she knew still in an outside workplace. "I know that when I was working in a hospital or a doctor's office or in homes delivering hospice care, I wish someone had sent me an email devotion each morning that would give me a focus and a lesson for the day." This ministry went from 12 people to hundreds and continues today. This book contains 365 devotions along with 12 biographical pages telling about ordinary people used by an extraordinary God. Find out how God can use you too!

This is not a typical devotional book. There is no ten-step program inside to better yourself. It is not a deep theological study. It is not an end to all trials or an answer to all problems. This book is a collection of stories, prayers, and reflections. They are honest, vulnerable, sometimes dramatic, sometimes humorous, and sometimes sad, but they are real. They point to Him. No matter what adventures we travel through, our Maker and Creator is always with us. He isn’t looking for extraordinary people. He is not looking for the exceptional and the elite. He is the exceptional and the elite. He is just wanting us to walk alongside Him.

Saint Paul claimed to be the chief sinner, but the man that Paul Adams once was could rival him—but not anymore. The life of deceit, selfishness, and pain that the author engaged in is now in the rearview mirror. When he reads about the people who will not inherit the kingdom of God, he can see the man he used to be walking toward eternal destruction. While Adams was close to certain death many times, God kept him here so he could become a soldier for His cause. Ever since Adams was saved, he has sought to win souls for the Lord. In this testimony, he asks powerful questions such as: • How can we work on a daily basis for God’s glory? • Where can we find opportunities to be part of God’s work? • What can we do to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit? While Adams is just an ordinary man, his journey of slowly moving toward Christ until being born again holds valuable lessons for everyone. Discover how you, too, can be redeemed and live in God’s love and grace.

Have you ever wondered about some of the lesser known people mentioned in the Bible? There are many people in the Bible who were helpers of the significant ones like David, Moses, Peter, and Paul. For example, Abigail, one of David's wives, saved her family because she was thoughtful and hardworking. Uriah, the husband of Bathsheba, lost his life because of his loyalty to the army and his King. People from other nations played an important part in Jewish history because they trusted God and made their home with the Jews. What about New Testament people like Apollos, Barnabas, Cornelius, and some of the lesser known disciples? This book is about many of those people who met God and made a decision for or against Him.
