This past year was very difficult for me as several family members went through serious illnesses. I actually think it was a God wink that I stumbled upon this book. Now I know that all the little coincedences that occurred where not really coincedences and since I read this book, I have been able to look back and identify all the God winks of my life. My family members are doing very well now and when I recall the winks that led them to what turned out to be the best care, it renews my faith and all of us now have a more positive outlook on life since we have proof that God is never more than a wink away.

How many times have you dismissed a coincidence, as miraculous as it may seem, as being a random event that doesn't really mean anything? I guarantee you that 'When God Winks' will change your mind, or at the very least, awaken you to the possibility that there's something more to those happenstance events. The author, Squire D. Rushnell, suggests that coincidences are actually God's way of signaling that we're heading in the right direction. And, once we learn how to watch for them, they can dramatically alter our lives. 'When God Winks' is a very quick read and is filled with wonderful stories that prove God is winking at us all the time. Thank you, Squire Rushnell, for making a difference in my life.

This book helped answer a lot of the "why" questions in my life. I recommend it to anyone who seeks answers to those nagging little questions about the intersections of events and people in one's life.

I have given away probably 10 of these book to friends and will continue to purchase more. We all are amazed when coinsidences happen, but it is really God who has planned it all along.

This is a book that can literally change your life. When we uncover the secret of coincidences in our lives we can better understand that we are not here on this earth randomly. We all have a purpose. As the author so beautifully described. "We are on a global positioning system and out of 6 billion people on this earth we are receiving a personal communication every time a God Wink occurs. This is a great book to start off the new year!

I was amazed at this book from the getgo. It was recommended to me by a younger friend and I thought it would not fit me. But it was well written, thoughfully presented and most obviously, it was just what I needed to start looking for "God Winks" in my life. It will be a pleasure to be able to recognize and spot my many "God Winks" in my new life!

I am the type that doesn't take the time to read, but I was drawn to this book. I loved it so much that I have been buying copies and giving to my friends and family.....It's wonderful!

I was so glad when I found this book. I am going through a period in my life that is filled with much uncertainty. Although I already understand the 'winks' from God, I didn't know what they meant. I see signs everywhere, everyday (or winks I should say)that relates to my situation. If I were to translate these winks, I would say it means God is telling me to hang in there...what you want is coming. Whenever I get discouraged, I look at my God Wink Journal and it reminds me of all the signs. The signs I'm experiencing CANNOT just be coincidences. These are things that leave my jaw on the floor and I've stopped dead in my tracks on occassion. This book helps you understand that God does talk to us and he lets us know that we're on the right path.

In mid- April the Pastoral Care Department Head at the hospital recommended this book at an in-service for volunteers. Since that time, we have ordered a number of these books three times- it has become the best seller for volunteers and staff alike. We are constantly hearing stories about a 'God wink' and it has really raised everyone's spirits.

WHEN GOD WINKS is a heart warming book that inspires and offers hope. It has many great stories about the way God winks with coincidences. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and recommend it to people all of the time!

I wish it had more meaningful information.

It is very reassuring to know that there is a Supreme God that looks on the everyday occurrences of little ol' me. I found this book to be very encouraging and up-lifting. Who wouldn't like to know of confirmations of the path they are about to take or have taken?
