I couldn't help but be attracted to this book cover because it depicts Venice. Author May Patterson got lost there once (I did too!) and just as she was panicking she saw a familiar face. This experience drew her to God. I'm spotlighting this book today and you could win your own copy by entering the giveaway below.

The greatest adventure of your life awaits. And it will change everything.
Ever feel disappointed? Like your life isn't as fulfilling as you had always dreamed it would be? Are you laden down with responsibilities, feeling overwhelmed and empty, or maybe even a bit caged?
You're not alone.
Many people in the Bible felt the same way. Most had difficulties. Some felt stuck. Others were depressed, afraid and uncertain. And some just wanted to get closer to God. So they set out on life's adventure —seeking God—and encountered the One who fulfilled their longings and changed their lives forever.
The same can happen for you.
Seeking a Familiar Face guides you on the transforming journey of connecting with God, through simple, yet extraordinary ways. It doesn't matter if you are already seeking Him or just getting started, this book will encourage you to go a little farther toward locking hearts with God.
In this book you will discover engaging narratives from ten biblical characters, along with stories, humor, and practical ideas for seeking God. There are thought-provoking questions at the end of each chapter to discuss with a friend or a group. Most of all, Seeking a Familiar Face will offer you fresh hope for deepening your intimacy with God.
