Life Can Be Everything You Never Expected.
A pastor and a tap dancer, both aspiring writers, met through their teenagers and began a long-distance friendship. Given Moments, their first collaboration, is about finding grace, hope, and humor in life's unplanned moments.
The stories in this book, collected from people of different ages and backgrounds, are entertaining and inspiring. Even the stories that begin with despair and sadness end with a message of hope. It is a book by 61 people, written for everyone. Chances are you will find your story in it somewhere.
"Given Moments is one of those rare books that changes the way we think about life. Each chapter, each story, will help everyone who reads it see the magic in the tiny moments, and feel again the awe and mystery of the big ones. We are blessed all the time, every day, and we just forget. Reading this book reminded me how blessed I really am, all the time, and I hope it does the same for you."
--Scott Seeke, pastor, devotional writer and co-writer of Get Low, a 2010 Sony Pictures film starring Robert Duvall, Bill Murray, and Sissy Spacek

Other than just a few "good moments," too many personal, confidential and confessional stories that felt embarrassing (very close to breaches of confidence) and out of place. Very disappointing and not recommended.
