In today's society everyone is busy-busy taking the kids to school, busy with work, busy with life. We're always rushing to and fro, never really taking the time to slow down. We throw a quick 'Lord, keep me safe today,' in the mornings, but Wait a Minute, God's Still Talking. In their second book, Warren and Mary Beth Powell, highlight the importance of taking the time to listen to what God has to say back to you. Wait a Minute, God's Still Talking is a collection of short stories like you'd hear told from your grandparents on the back porch-simple, easy-to-understand, and yet always pointing toward God's faithfulness. Warren and Mary Beth share from their own experiences, blending insights, wit, and humor with biblical truths, To show how God will use everyday items to catch our attention and teach us something, if only we'd stop to listen. Did you ever think God would use: bull; paper towels to teach about being centered on Christ, bull; a motorcycle license plate to explain his forgiveness, bull; Scotch tape as an example that he is our God 24/7, bull; or a cell phone as a lesson about hiding sin? Warren and Mary Beth Powell live in Henderson, Texas. This is their second book, a continuation of Sonbeams, or short devotionals, that began in their first book, A Dirty Sink, A Bug, and Squirrels: God Speaks.
