What biblical truths can a woman learn from the Incredible Hulk and a love of cupcakes? What life lessons can be found among the shelves of appliance parts or while visiting Graceland? It turns out God provides endless opportunities for us to learn if only we pay attention.

In this collection of devotional essays, author Karen B. Pollock shares her experiences of learning God’s lessons in everyday life, whether she’s mourning the loss of her favorite spatula or meeting an elderly gentleman in the aisle at the grocery store. Written with honesty and humor, they help us see that sometimes the simplest truths are the most profound. The self-described “chubby girl from Payneville” realizes that God can use all of us to do his work, from the most humble among us to the most exalted. She wrestles with the same kinds of questions we all have, from wondering whether she’s obsessive to regretting allowing a longtime friendship to languish. Yet each instance is an opportunity to see God’s hand at work, and each offers fresh insight into biblical passages.

Spend some time with Karen, roller-skating with her third-grade students (and realizing too late that it’s not as easy as it was twenty-five years ago) and basking in the aroma of her freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. It won’t be long before you discover—or rediscover—that God can be found in the seemingly ordinary moments of our lives. We only have to be open to his presence.
