What's Extraordinary about Being Ordinary?
Deep down inside of all of us is a need to be praised. Whether you are a mom or dad, a husband or wife, or a student pursuing your dreams, the desire is evident - we all want to be acknowledged for our pursuits. We constantly compare our lives with our neighbors. Sometimes unknowingly, we yearn for what is not ours and grumble about we have. We think that there must be a better existence awaiting if we strive a little harder and push a little more to change the life we have. But in the pushing and the striving, along the way we forget the very things that make life worth living. This book will take you back to what is truly extraordinary in the grand scheme of things. You will be reminded of where success is revealed. And hopefully, you will find a renewed joy in living the life you have now. You are invited to release the temptation to be spectacular in your eyes and become who your creator has made you to be in His eyes. And in the process, you may discover ordinary is a more extraordinary enterprise than you ever realized it could be. Stephen Hibdon is a pastor at Florence Avenue Foursquare Church in southern California. He has been married to his college sweetheart, Cynthia for 13 years. He is passionate about living an authentic Godly example to his friends, neighbors, and his three young children, Noah, Riley, and Reagan. He was raised in Missouri in a pastor's home and gained positive perspective on the benefit of the church on a young life. Stephen graduated from L.I.F.E. Bible College in 1996 and since then has made it his life mission to help young and old discover their promising potential in Christ.
