Everyday life can offer a plethora of moments – emotional filled moments. Some are good, some are bad and some are just, well, just moments. In the middle of these moments, we also are faced with miracles from God.
Dave Burchett with a fresh openness to those things and an honesty about his own responses offers readers a unique perspective on ‘seeing’ what God offers us.
Utilizing personal examples taken from his life, from experiences with his grandchildren, his wife and his sweet precious Maggie – his Retriever, Burchett shows us that God is with us everywhere.
All we have to do is get in tune with God and see what He is doing around us.
There  are many passages which really stepped on my toes- Burchett’s wisdom in offering suggestions about disconnecting from things that distract us from getting to know God is on the money.
Woven in with his real-life experiences are sensible ideas, offerings of how to find peace and scriptures to use as guides. There is nothing wrong with having a simple life.

This is one book that I would give as gifts to friends and coworkers and associates.
