Did you know you can find glory everywhere?
Finding God at the Kitchen Sink is a collection of reflections for those seeking solace in this fallen, confusing, and disorderly world.
Did you know you can find glory everywhere—in God's creation, in His Word, in relationships, and in the details of everyday life? Maggie's gut-honest perspective will help you see that God shows up even where we least expect Him, like in the pain and ache of life.
With stories that teach us to pay attention to His Presence, to the God who is always here and is always for us, Finding God at the Kitchen Sink changes the way we see everything. Those with bruised up hearts who are plodding along, simply existing, will come away with a heaping amount of hope that there is indeed purpose in the mundane and glory in the grime.
Maggie Paulus belongs to the society A. W. Tozer called "the fellowship of the burning heart." She's on a hunt—a hunt for beauty and rest, for the slaking of those longings and desires that linger deep down in every human soul. And in this gem of a book, she invites us to join the hunt, recounting along the way the brokenness of her past, the ordinariness of her present, and the glorious hope she has discovered in Jesus. C. S. Lewis wrote about finding patches of Godlight in the woods of our experience. Well, this beautiful book is full of Godlight. I hope you'll read it.

Captivating! Every page breathes fresh gospel hope. Maggie masterfully weaves life-story with His story and then beckons us to imagine the extraordinary, almost unimaginable significance and mission that exists in the mundaneness of our daily realities. I laughed. I cried. And I was drawn to know Him more.
—Carrie Gaul, author, Joy in the Midst: A Study in Philippians
Maggie has a child's eyes, an artist's soul, and a lover's heart. Some books make wise. This book reveals the God who makes good. Grab your coffee, cookies and Kleenex, and (as Maggie puts it) get ready for your Maker to "scribble round the edges of your heart."
—Del Fehsenfeld III, senior editor of Revive Magazine, Life Action Ministries
Maggie has been a longtime friend of our family, and I've always admired the way she notices beauty and the grace of God in both nature and the people around her. She takes the time, in her ordinary routine, to thank and praise God, and marvel at the work of His hand. That's a gift. In Finding God at the Kitchen Sink, Maggie shares that gift with us!
—Carrie Ward author, Together: Growing Appetites for God
With homespun style that won't let you go, Maggie lives and breathes God in every detail. She helps us appreciate that there is no humdrum when it comes to discovering God in the daily grind. Real struggles can become real strides forward with Maggie as a reliable guide.
—Byron Paulus, president, Life Action Ministries, Buchanan, MI
If we ever needed the reminder that God will meet us where we are in our messy, broken lives, this is it. Maggie beautifully shows us how to see God in the midst of our everyday lives—both in the exceptional and the mundane. A must-read for those desperate to recognize God's fingerprints on their life.
