In Everyday Miracles (published by WestBow Press), author Clementine Schroeder and co-author Dolores Lewis present a roving travelogue of Schroeder’s life, illuminating times in her life when God intervened in moments of crisis. Acutely personal and deeply inspirational, Everyday Miracles offers a refreshing alternative to the ubiquitous daily devotions book, using real-life events to show God’s grace and to encourage readers to continue through their own personal storms.
Everyday Miracles features 17 chapters, each chapter detailing a specific moment of need in Schroeder’s life and God’s power to make the “crooked roads straight.” Each chapter concludes with a biblical reference.
With heartwarming candor, Schroeder writes simply and elegantly on her most vulnerable moments, such as losing a young grandchild in her personal care amongst a crowd on a beach in Tel Aviv, Israel, assisting at the graveside service of a death row prisoner and hearing her newborn grandchild’s devastating and disfiguring diagnosis.
The doctor called it cavernous hemangeoma. The church in Windsor began to fast and pray, and I in Texas had everyone praying as well. At gas stations I would go up to strangers and show them Gracie’s picture, then ask if they would be willing to pray for my granddaughter. I was so concerned because if the tumor continued to grow it would damage her nose or eye. Everyone I approached showed concern and with a sincere voice they promised they would pray. Our wonderful God heard all of our prayers, the hemangeoma stopped growing.
Everyday Miracles is one Christian’s personal testimony to the miracles of God. “My mission with this book is to encourage others in their faith in God and their reliance on Him to meet their needs,” says Schroeder. “His care, concern and love for us are unfathomable.”
