Whether I'm in the dentist chair, walking on our local trail, exercising in body sculpting class or walking through the waters of breast cancer, the Holy Spirit transforms my daily activities into spiritual learning events. Tucked within these pages are devotionals written from firsthand experiences, as common as apple pie, to demonstrate God does speak, we only need to listen.
