Everyday Epiphanies-Melannie believes that God is speaking to us always: in our sorrows and joys, disappointments and successes, our fears and hopes, and that God speaks to us in our pain in a special way. It is her hope that her 175 short stories will illustrate God’s presence in everything. The topics range from the mundane to the very exciting events of life. And Scripture passages scatter throughout offering deep insights into the ways that Jesus used the occurrence of everyday living to reveal both God and grace- the brushing up of the Holy against the ordinary events of daily life.
This classic collection of Melannie’s reflections on everyday moments is a wonderful book to gift and cherish.
