We started out living the dream. We promised ourselves that every day would be an amazing day. We even stuck that phrase – “Amazing Days” – on our refrigerator, like Martin Luther pounding his conviction into a door and launching the next great era of the church. “Ready or not,” we told the world, “here we come.” We traveled the planet, doing community development work in Latin America, China, Africa.
Then we went back home – to the land of shopping malls and manicured lawns. And we wondered what had become of amazing days. In This Ordinary Adventure my husband Adam and I mine our experience, from riding motorcycles in Africa to dicing celery in Wisconsin, in search of a God who is always present and charging every moment with potential.
