Stories of Grace, Wonder, and Synchronicity
In WOW! Moments, Billy Hester shares remarkable stories drawn from the intersection of his long and creative career as both a New York performer and a local parish minister in Savannah, Georgia. This beautiful, soulful, and wonder-filled book is written with down to earth candor, humor, and authenticity.
In a world filled with personal apprehension, anxiety, and even tragedy, Hester celebrates moments of grace, wonder, and synchronicity. It is these instances, where all the stars align in our lives, when the fates turn in our favor, that we understand the wondrous nature of the world.
Through his lifelong practice of paying attention, Hester gently teaches us to capture the fleeting "WOW! Moments" in our own lives, so that they might spark a little more daily faith and wake us up in times when God feels absent.
If you are facing one of life's challenges or are tempted to think that you are alone in the universe, read this book.
