Ordinary People Extraordinary GOD – Book Promotion
I received a copy of “Ordinary People Extraordinary GOD” ($14.99 value/Amazon) in exchange for this post. Any opinions expressed here are honest and my own.
Ordinary people come in all shapes and sizes as do our personal lives. Some of us hit rock bottom to see the light, others seem to be guided along the way.
In Ordinary People Extraordinary GOD, Rick Schatz shares 17 personal stories of lives transformed by the love of God.
“The goal of this book is to encourage others to seek a personal relationship with God and for those who already have such a personal relationship to dream bigger and reach for the stars in serving him.”
– Rick Schatz
The Bible shares many stories of ordinary people who were chosen to do extraordinary things…such as John and Peter to name a few. They were not highly educated and ordinary people to share the Word of God and do extraordinary things.
The same is happening today.
In Schatz’s book, Jean, Joanne, Rick, and many more ordinary people today, are still being chosen by God to do many great things and become modern heroes who became pastors, create peacemaking ministries, and outreach ministries, or turn from addiction by God’s hand.
Nothing is impossible with God’s guidance!
What’s your story to share? Or is God still working on your story?
Ordinary People Extraordinary GOD can be purchased at your local book store or Amazon.
