After a decade living in Latin America, China, and South Africa, our family came "home" to the land of shopping malls, manicured lawns, and rat races. In our newest book, This Ordinary Adventure, Adam and I mine our experience, from riding motorcycles in Africa to washing dishes in Wisconsin, in search of a God who is always present and who charges every moment with potential. In it you'll see your your own ruts and routines through different eyes and seek out the "Amazing" in even the most ordinary days.
