About the Book

Such trivial things— a hutch full of rabbits, dishes left over after a church potluck, a bag of sugar, cleaning house— ordinary things and ordinary activities in which Frances Parker once again discovers the extraordinary.  She detects the activity and the voice of God in the routine things of life and shares them with her readers in an unassuming, yet surprising manner. Her poetry, focusing on everyday, common happenings, encourages readers to see God in the humdrum sameness of their busy lives. She shows that opportunities to experience Him are all around.


Parker offers glimpses of God in the ordinary things of life.  In Uncommon Ground, she invites you to take off your shoes and discover something extraordinary in the everyday, uncommon ground beneath your feet.
