Product Description

Most women don’t consider their lives great. Stuck in an endless routine of cleaning, cooking, and caring for family members, they struggle to find meaning and worth in their daily lives. Exhausted at the end of another busy, chaotic day, they wonder if they have made any measurable progress, if their work counts, and if it even matters.

In Rocking Ordinary author Lea Ann Garfias talks frankly, but in a humorous way, about real life, ministry failures, and the depressing side of Christian womanhood. Whether you feel capable or not, you are already changing lives. This fun-filled book is for Christian women in their 20s, 30s, or 40s who may or may not have children, may or may not be tired, and may or may not be addicted to coffee.

    I have really enjoyed this book. My favorite thing is how the author calls us to read to chapters in the Bible at the end of each of her chapters. I like that challenge instead of just one verse that applies to her topic. I feel like she is truly asking us to seek God's wisdom. I also love the questions at the end of each chapter as well.

    I feel like the chapters on pain be too much, but maybe for some one out there it is just what they need to hear.

    Overall though I have loved this book, and enjoyed the honest challenging writing and wisdom of the author.

    Rocking Ordinary is a book all moms can identify with. LeaAnn made excellent points and inspires us to face truth in our own ordinary way. Filled with encouragement and hope, this easy read book is applicable to any mom. I giggled like a young school girl. I cried like a baby. Then I found myself nodding my head in agreement. This book tugged on my heart and challenged my inner thinking of how God can use an ordinary me. My eyes have been opened to realize the significance of everything in the middle of the mundane and ordinary.

    "Rocking Ordinary" reminded me that as a mom, as a wife, as a person, that I can make a difference in my family and all around me. It shows me that even as a homeschooling mama of 4, I am just as important in God's eyes as the next person..that I am to Rock it every day and in every way!

    Sometimes as a mom I feel more like "Clark Kent" than "Super Mom"..I am taking my time reading this book. I received an advanced copy of this book to review, my opinions are my own.

    Rocking Ordinary reminded me that I am a difference maker and I am needed exactly where I am. My new answer to How are you doing? is I am rocking ordinary! An encouraging read for the woman who feels she is not making a difference.

    "Rocking Ordinary" is a wonderful encouraging book for all women. Lea Ann pulls back the curtains to show that the everyday ordinary is important. She is real and honest in sharing her journey while always leading the reader back to God. I have cried, laughed, and shook my head in agreement with so much in this book. She has written a timely message to encourage women to keep rocking the ordinary with extraordinary grace. I have enjoyed reading my advanced copy of this book and all opinions are entirely my own.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Lea Ann Garfias
Located in: Dallas, Texas
Submitted: May 25, 2016

    Tell us a little about yourself.  Lea Ann Garfias believes there is enough coffee in the world to make even dreadful Thursdays possible. As a ministry leader and homeschool writer, she helps ordinary moms realize their extraordinary influence. When she's not homeschooling her four children, directing her church choir, or performing the violin, she's passed out asleep.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I know my friends have tremendous influence on their families and communities, but they don't always believe that their day-to-day lives have significance. I wrote this book to encourage women that God is using us, He is empowering us to overcome obstacles, and He wants us to boldly display Himself before those around us.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I want every woman to know she is the very image of God, and that His work through her makes all the difference.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  Working on this book has been both challenging and encouraging. It's challenging, because God is bringing me face-to-face with my own lack of faith, my own insecurity with how He is working in and through me. And yet while I was writing the book and sharing this message with those around me, I have seen God answering specific prayers of mine and healing long-suffered wounds in my own heart. So I know that the Lord will use this message of healing and hope mightily in the lives of others. Our God is just that powerful!

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  This book is painfully honest about the sin and tragedy that seems to keep us from reaching our potential, and it offers hope for making a difference. It's not a preachy book, but it does share concrete spiritual truths and devotional suggestions. And sometimes I'm accidentally funny; people laugh at me all the time.
