If we’re honest, we'll admit our days are filled with normal routines like eating cereal and sitting in traffic. We often wonder, “is this it?” 

But do we really have to quit our jobs and travel the world to find a fulfilling, purposeful life? Is it possible to find significance in our daily routines, right here and now?

After experiencing a rapid series of major life changes within a single year, Nate stumbled upon a reality that’s shared by us all: there's profound meaning in our ordinary, everyday moments, but we can't see it.

Through painfully-honest storytelling and candid conversation, written from a Christian perspective for both spiritual and non-spiritual readers, Nate shares how years of mistakes and missteps uncovered a simple framework that reveals the greater purpose behind our everyday lives, and why the answers to life's deep questions are often backward from what we expect.

“I haven’t read a book cover to cover in probably 4 years, and I read this book in 3 days. It keeps you engaged through simple, relatable storytelling. The lessons learned throughout are ones I found myself able to relate to, and I’d definitely recommend this to anyone trying to get more out of, as the title states, the simple, ordinary experiences in life.” - Daniel K., Los Angeles

“Nate challenged me to take inventory of the lessons I'm learning and re-learning in my own life’s journey. The stories throughout emotionally engage you, cause laughter, suspense, and a desire to live a life beyond the ordinary. Over all, this book will challenge your status quo and bring meaning to your daily routine!” - Connie D., Kansas City

“This is a book packing so much punch, I had to take it one chapter at a time. Nate has a unique way of connecting with the reader, you feel this is an excerpt out of your own journal. Nate urges us to pause, reflect on what brought us to this moment, and trust in the greater story designed for us. Fantastic read.” - Aaron H., Denver
