I had read Regina Brett’s first book, God Never Blinks: 50 Lessons for Life’s Little Detours, a couple of years ago. I found it in Watermark Books & Cafe, a well-curated thriving independent bookstore in Wichita, KS. Anne Frey helped me and we’ve been pen pals ever since.
When I saw God is Always Hiring: 50 Lessons for Finding Fulfilling Work in a bookstore in the Raleigh Durham airport, I knew I was in for a treat for my 6 hour flight. Each lesson bears a forthright title like “In this drama of life, there are no small parts.” and “Don’t confuse your work with your worth.”
Each chapter is short, attitude adjusting and often has to do with God. Some examples include “God completes our work” and “It’s not about what you can do but what God can do through you.”
Brett has been a newspaper columnist for twenty years, fourteen of them for the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Many of the lessons were originally published as a newspaper column.
