Title shows readers Christ’s presence in the everyday mess of life

It's a Jumble Out There!

I hope this book allows my readers to remember and share their own stories about growing up to their children

Combining his love for God’s Word, moments from his youth while growing up with eight brothers and sisters in the ’60s and ’70s, and a desire for people to see Christ in their everyday lives, Xulon Press author Tim Talbot uses a lively sense of humor to create 50-plus short devotional stories for the whole family to enjoy in It’s a Jumble Out There! ($11.99, paperback, 978-1-61579-925-1) This new title demonstrates how, by looking through the eyes of a child who sees the fun in everything, life can seem pretty jumbled at times—but God is always present.

“I hope this book allows my readers to remember and share their own stories about growing up to their children,” the author says. “I also want people to see Christ in the everyday mess of all of our lives. How he is working everything out for good for all those who trust in him. Finally, I want readers to recognize that faith is based on remembering. He sees us through the highs and lows of our lives.”

Talbot, who has counseled many men in his ministry work, says he witnessed many people who seemingly had no hope come to Jesus. From then on, their lives were forever changed. Similarly, he is confident that his book will lead readers to change their attitude, outlook, and legacy—all for the better. “My hope is that someone may encounter Christ while reading this book,” he explains.

Tim Talbot has been involved in ministry work for the past 20 years and is a national speaker on teaching and family topics. He and his wife, Tammy, are the proud parents of two sons, Ben and Luke.
