About the Book

Stories are the very fabric of life and ministry, and they reiterate that God is present in our lives.

Dr. Dixil Lisbeth Rodriguez has collected stories of her learning, interactions with others, and of her observations within the scope of academia and chaplaincy. She was driven to do so by a desire to find lessons from Scripture in everyday life.

In this book, she leads readers on a reflective journey of faith, sharing moments where she’s been inspired and engaged by the divine. While such encounters are often brief, they can bring significant meaning to life, engaging questions the reader may be challenged and familiar with.

She shares her insights with the belief that we are not irrelevant to God and that each one of us should search for the obvious work of the Spirit in our lives and in that of others. That can be a true challenge in a world that moves at a fast pace and where technology tends to deprive us of a meaningful direct and personal connection with others.

These stories are a testimony that human beings are not abandoned by God; they provide evidence that God is active in our individual lives through the Holy Spirit.

About the Author

If you ask Dr. Rodriguez for a business card, you will receive a small card with a picture of a jagged stone stair way leading out of a cave. A beautiful picture taken in the Island of Patmos, Greece, when she traveled with her father for dissertation research. You will no doubt want to hear the story. Dr. Rodriguez completed her MA. in English at Bowie State University, M.Div. at Iliff School of Theology in Colorado, and her Ph.D. in Rhetoric at Texas Woman’s University. A chaplain, professor, public speaker, and award-winning writer, Dr. Rodriguez serves in health care, education, and humanitarian communities. She writes from her home in Texas.
