Like anyone else, Pastor Angela Donadio knows that everyday life can wear a person down. And the roughest challenges in life can come when you least expect them.
But, then, Donadio also knows that God, in His goodness, can astound His children with miracles daily. Just when you crave a few precious moments to step away from your busy schedule and stress, God can provide you with the reprieve you so desperately need.
Her book, Astounded, offers 52 devotionals to help you to learn how God can use even the worst of circumstances to bring out the best in our lives, including the time when Donadio was involved in a terrible car accident that left her with severe injuries.
"Sometimes, life pulls out in front of us when we least expect it," Donadio told Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of Greenelines on the Charisma Podcast Network. "Some days, real life is more outrageous than fiction. Especially in this year, you almost couldn't even write this script.
"But, I believe, sometimes every day moments are God-intended miracles. So, my book is a collection of raw personal stories. ... They are just a reprieve that I think, especially women, are craving, to step away from their schedule. I would have said prior to 2020 that we are living over-scheduled lives. But what I'm sensing now is that we're living over-taxed because we are over-taxed by all of this uncertainty.
"We've had so much demanded of us. So, I want this to be a reprieve. There are 52 devotions filled with heartfelt stories and humor. ... I don't just people to read it and just go, well, that was a great story. I want them to look at how they can view their own life, their own circumstances and how to keep your eyes peeled for the miracle—whether it's in mundane moments or even if it's in really messy moments."
