This devotional is one of the best IÃ¢ÂÂve read. It not only brings biblical characters to life with Ms. HigmanÃ¢ÂÂs 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 characterÃ¢ÂÂs story can be applied to the readerÃ¢ÂÂs 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.

Unique, Creative, Insightful
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).

Seeing Bible Characters from a different angle.
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.
