This daily devotional is about looking for God in our everyday lives. God gives us lessons in life to grow a stronger faith, but we need to watch for the blessings along our path. From the struggles of farm life, to the splendors of vacations. From the heartache of losing a loved one, to the joys of grand-parenting. From every day cleaning, to the blessings of unexpected precious moments. God is present in all that we do, if we simply slow down and look for the abundant life He offers. These devotions teach us that every lesson in life is from God as He molds us, shapes us, and helps us grow. All He asks in return is that you Bloom Where You're Planted and serve Him.

This extraordinary real-life memoir is about overcoming obstacles, victory, and defeat, an inspirational family narrative, and a historical trajectory of facts and culture in the US from the 1950s to the present time. There are undertones of a yearning for a return to the more civilized society that baby boomers grew up in. As the wife of the man, who after climbing the corporate ladder for years became the president of Mack Trucks Inc., the author had to uproot four children and move many times. While attending to all of her children who have been involved in every childhood sport imaginable, her main focus was on her youngest with cystic fibrosis, a fatal disease, which requires multiple treatments several times daily. That was an incredulous balancing routine, doling out equal attention to all the children. The extreme highs and lows of life have skewed the family perspective by the trauma of the youngest family member toggling on the tenuous tightrope between life and death. The family learned to never sweat the small stuff as they incessantly waited for the other shoe to drop. Paula’s family has greatly appreciated every morsel of happiness, lives awash with triumph and tragedy. When people who live with intense life challenges share similar circumstances with others, they become of one accord, form bonds and intimacy. Paula survived a rife of life-threatening childhood illnesses, a molestation, apathy, and subpar grades in a draconian Catholic school where nun oppression was the rule. It was turned around twenty-five years later when she graduated magna cum laude from Emory University. Paula changed hats often working in airline passenger service, as professional ski instructor, as an older student, as an events planner for the Carter Presidential Center, and as an editorial producer for CNN Atlanta and NYC. They were all happening while relocating residences often, raising four daughters—one with special needs, and volunteering for everything from PTA, Girl Scouts, church, Little League. She also cared for her dying sister for six years and escorted her executive husband to global conferences. Paula rides with Central Park Mounted Patrol and is Gigi (grandma), where life has taught her to Bloom—wherever she has been planted.

A 2013 Christianity Today Book Award winner Imagine the scenarios: a CEO successfully negotiates a corporate merger, avoiding hundreds of layoffs in the process an artist completes a mosaic for public display at a bank, showcasing neighborhood heroes a contractor creates a work-release program in cooperation with a local prison, growing the business and seeing countless former inmates turn their lives around a high-school principal graduates 20 percent more students than the previous year, and the school's average scores go up by a similar percentage Now imagine a parade in the streets for each event. That's the vision of Proverbs 11:10, in which the tsaddiqim--the people who see everything they have as gifts from God to be stewarded for his purposes--pursue their vocation with an eye to the greater good. Amy Sherman, director of the Center on Faith in Communities and scholar of vocational stewardship, uses the tsaddiqim as a springboard to explore how, through our faith-formed calling, we announce the kingdom of God to our everyday world. But cultural trends toward privatism and materialism threaten to dis-integrate our faith and our work. And the church, in ways large and small, has itself capitulated to those trends, while simultaneously elevating the "special calling" of professional ministry and neglecting the vocational formation of laypeople. In the process, we have, in ways large and small, subverted our kingdom mandate. God is on the move, and he calls each of us, from our various halls of power and privilege, to follow him. Here is your chance, keeping this kingdom calling in view, to steward your faith and work toward righteousness. In so doing, you will bless the world, and as you flourish, the world will celebrate.

In an unorthodox approach, Cal Newport debunks the long-held belief that "follow your passion" is good advice, and sets out on a quest to discover the reality of how people end up loving what they do. Not only are pre-existing passions rare and have little to do with how most people end up loving their work, but a focus on passion over skill can be dangerous, leading to anxiety and chronic job hopping. Spending time with organic farmers, venture capitalists, screenwriters, freelance computer programmers, and others who admitted to deriving great satisfaction from their work, Newport uncovers the strategies they used and the pitfalls they avoided in developing their compelling careers. Matching your job to a pre-existing passion does not matter, he reveals. Passion comes after you put in the hard work to become excellent at something valuable, not before. In other words, what you do for a living is much less important than how you do it. With a title taken from the comedian Steve Martin, who once said his advice for aspiring entertainers was to "be so good they can't ignore you," Cal Newport's clearly written manifesto is mandatory reading for anyone fretting about what to do with their life, or frustrated by their current job situation and eager to find a fresh new way to take control of their livelihood. He provides an evidence-based blueprint for creating work you love, and will change the way you think about careers, happiness, and the crafting of a remarkable life.

Yes, you do have purpose from God. Yes, you do have a spiritual gift. Yes, you are anointed. Yes, God is concerned about your well-being and thank God that you do not have to allow people, personalities or problems to prevent you from pursuing and fulfilling your God-given purpose. These are only a few of the areas Bishop Thomas Clark addresses and explains in this insightful, thought-provoking book. If you are truly interested in understanding and ultimately operating within your purpose from God, then this is the book for you. With both his grandfather and father being used by God to pastor churches, Bishop Thomas A. Clark, IV has always been involved in some capacity of ministry. He is currently the Senior Pastor of World Deliverance Christian Center (WDCC), a multicultural church located a few miles west of Chicago in Hillside, IL. Thomas preaches a message of salvation and empowerment designed to help convert the lost and allow the children of God to live a Spirit-filled life without limitations. He believes that the Gospel forces a conflict and often says: "Every time we have an encounter with Jesus, we must make a decision. We will either decide for Him or against Him, but we will make a decision." He and his wife, Felicia, have three children, one of whom is married, and one grandchild."
