Amy Montanez, skilled counselor and therapist, stands before you as if on a spiritual playground, proclaiming, ‘on your mark, get set, go,’ inviting you to embrace your life joyfully as the key to God-given wholeness. I’ll be revisiting its pages time and time again; I know you will as well.”—The Rev. Michael R. Sullivan, Rector, Holy Innocents, Atlanta, Author of Windows into the Soul and Windows into the Light

“Amy Montanez’s sharp powers of observation lead her to poignant encounters with the holy in a variety of settings including a computer store, a city bank, a street in her neighborhood, and dreams in the night. This wonderful book will widen your perception of God's activity in the world and pique your imagination for how God aggressively pursues us all, even in the most unlikely of moments.” —Frank G. Honeycutt, Author of The Truth Shall Make You Odd: Speaking with Pastoral Integrity in Awkward Situations
