People should read this book if they need encouragement, if they believe that their life could be more meaningful, or if they feel, as I did half way through my life, that ‘there must be something more to life than what I am experiencing.’

Author Robert A. Nickle reaches out to readers who want to experience more of the extraordinary in their everyday lives in his new memoir, “The Extraordinary Events of an Ordinary Man: Discovering God’s Purpose Makes Ordinary Life Extraordinary” (published by CrossBooks).
Growing up on a poultry farm in a town so small it didn’t even have a post office, Nickle was raised in a devout Christian home where trust, hard work and responsibility were a way of life. Everyone’s faith was assumed, and until high school, he carried his Bible almost everywhere he went.
Nickle recalls that in college, a liberal arts education “chipped away” at his faith. Although he still considered himself a Christian, he didn’t practice it. He married, began a family and abandoned his lifelong dream career as an artist in search of greater financial success in the business world.
At age 44, Nickle made a decision that pointed him back to his art career and the faith of his youth. He began to see Christianity as a living relationship and daily walk with the Lord, and his quest for financial success was replaced with a desire to serve God. It wasn’t long before he began to realize how the ordinary events in his life were actually extraordinary when viewed from his fresh perspective.
“As one of the ordinary people of this world, I believe that other ordinary people will relate to this story and the Holy Spirit will use it to draw them to faith,” Nickle says. “People should read this book if they need encouragement, if they believe that their life could be more meaningful, or if they feel, as I did half way through my life, that ‘there must be something more to life than what I am experiencing.’”
