Where God Finds You - Book Review

I first heard of Anita Higman when I stumbled across a web site called Spyglass Lane Mysteries. After downloading the first book in her Volstead Manor series and devouring it, I quickly nabbed the second in the series and then had to wait an agonizing couple of months until the third book came out. They were fun and entertaining and I couldn't wait to read more from this author.

Imagine my surprise when Anita's next book was listed as a non-fiction devotional. But knowing this author's talent for bringing a story to life, I couldn't wait to read it.

Where God Finds You - 40 Devotions Bringing Bible Characters to Life is another Anita Higman hit with me. It's a unique devotional that brings the Bible to life by retelling the stories of popular Bible characters from a first-person point of view.

You feel the agony and joy of the woman who was healed by touching Jesus' garment. You experience the awe and holy moment when Mary receives the message from an angel that she will carry the Christ child and you'll walk on the water with Peter as he steps out of the boat in faith, only to be swallowed up by the angry waves when his faith wavers.

Each story is told with exquisite detail, pulling you back in time, right into the story. Each is then followed up with a section called The Story From God's Word (the Biblical account of the the story) and The Story From Then to Now (practical application for today). The special added feature of discussion questions makes this devotional perfect for small groups or personal contemplation.

You can pick up a copy of Where God Finds You at AmazonBarnes & Noble or your local Christian bookseller.
