This Wondrous Life
By Andrina E. Rijken
Discover the extraordinary while living a seemingly ordinary life
Has life ever left you wondering What is this all for? Am I having any impact or making a difference at all?
When faced with the daily grind, it can be easy to believe our life has little significance. We can assume that just because we don’t have a platform or large social media following of thousands that we have no influence.
Different seasons in life cause us to reflect and re-evaluate, but sometimes leave us with more questions than answers. Getting older, unexpected changes, disappointment, and the ever-changing world around us that is so contrary to the Christian’s core values and beliefs can leave us with an overwhelming sense that we are redundant and don’t belong.
Thankfully, God’s ways are not determined by our platform or scope of influence. He longs for us to experience the extraordinary – even when we think our lives are ordinary and average.
This Wondrous Life will encourage, uplift and inspire. It aims to help uncover the wonder of living a life with Jesus through the various seasons and experiences we face. By drawing upon powerful Biblical truths, Andrina Rijken demonstrates how to apply the Word and find fulfilment and purpose, regardless of the circumstances we face. She shares her personal testimony and discusses her faith in relation to topics such as perfectionism, worship, being a “Wonder Woman” in a dark world, how to be an intentional influencer, dealing with disappointment, and how to laugh at the future.
