Publisher's Description

In forty devotional tales, Where God Finds You breathes new life into ancient Bible characters. Live with and learn about more than forty Bible men and women, including the wife of Pontius Pilate, Esther, John the Baptist, Delilah, Lazarus, and Mary Magdalene.

Through reflection on Scripture and prayer, you’ll discover a place in each of these lives of vulnerability, tenderness, truth, and love—a place where you can find God . . . and where God finds you.

Where God Finds You is unique among women’s devotional books in that it brings dozens of men and women of the Bible to life through dramatic short stories, connects biblical truths to today’s culture, and offers readers an opportunity to reflect on what they’ve learned. Each devotion features:

• A dramatic retelling of Scripture that allows the reader to crawl into the pages of the Bible.
• The Story from God's Word: a quote or paraphrase of the applicable Bible passage in a reader-friendly version.
• The Story—From Then to Now: a personal reflection from the author to help link the passage to life today.
• The Story—Questions to Think About: prompts for personal reflection or group discussion that lead to practical application.

    This devotional is one of the best I've read. It not only brings biblical characters to life with Ms. Higman's fantastic writing style, it also provides daily questions to ponder, pray over and journal about. The book could be used as a personal devotional as well as a group read. I love the way Where God Finds You takes one person from the bible each day, allowing the reader to get to know the character while showing how each character's story can be applied to the reader's life as well. Ms. Higman has a wonderful way of drawing the reader in with biblical truth and personal application. I would highly recommend this book.

    I collect devotionals so I was excited for the opportunity to review this new devotional by Anita Higman. It is a unique book, unlike my other devotionals. There are 40 devotions based on 40 different Bible characters such as Joseph, Peter, Lazarus, Paul, Ruth, Jonah, Rahab, Esther, Zacchaeus, Daniel, Hannah, and Job. The author gives us readers a glimpse of what their daily lives, thoughts, and feelings might have been like and helps us see how God worked in each of these lives and met their needs. She did a great job at bringing these characters to life. We can relate to them in so many different ways. What they learned can still apply to today's issues. Each devotion also includes the Story from God's Word (passages from the Bible) and the Story--from Then to Now which is a lesson in application that the author shares from her own experiences. Each devotion ends with thought-provoking questions that are useful for for either personal reflection or group discussion. I enjoyed reading this insightful book. I usually don't like to read fiction that is based on Bible characters because I feel that it may not retain the accuracy. However, the author's retelling of these characters is quite Biblically sound and believable (it provides the actual Scriptures to compare to).

    I love the style which Where God Finds You is written. It find that it breathes life into each character written about allowing me a more thought provoking view of the Scripture they are mentioned in. I find the style in which Anita has written this devotional book easy to follow allowing me to answer the questions she poses in each chapter as they apply in my life. Sometimes it is hard to understand Scripture the way it is written so it is great to have someone expand the story and relate to our lives today.

    40 Devotions featuring short stories of different people from the Bible, are brought to life in Anita Higman's latest book Where God Finds You.

    Anita has taken each story small story and expanded it with fiction to bring the story to life, all while staying true to the actual scripture.

    Each story starts with her expanded story, then the actual story from God's words. Finally ending with the story from then to know where she describes how it relates to happenings in her own life or how it could relate in your own life. At the end of each devotion are thought provoking questions that get you thinking about what you have just read and how it may apply to your life.

    If you are like me, I sometime have a hard time understanding the scriptures, But in reading her devotions, then reading the actual scripture behind it, I have come away with a much better understanding and am able to relate to many of the stories. The people of the Bible all those many years ago were just like us trying to live in this world today.

    I received a copy of the book from The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.
