Embracing The Ordinary

Amidst a culture fascinated by the spectacular, the glamorous and the exceptional, Ruth Zehr offers an alternative perspective on life. In Embracing the Ordinary, she invites her readers to discover the holy moments that are embedded in the people, places and experiences of 'ordinary' life. It reminds us that the things which we long for most in life are to be found in the lives we already live, for it is as we embrace the ordinary that grace comes to us in all its richness.
This book is not an autobiography, neither are the stories in any chronological order. This is a work of creative non-fiction. Interwoven throughout the pages is my story - the product of my heritage, life ventures, and endeavors to be faithful to God - interspersed with personal musings about the meaning and mystery of life.
