About the Book

A gifted storyteller with long experience in ministry, Bianca Podesta has a heart that recognizes everyday holiness. Here you will read how ordinary events and people have been transformed into light-filled windows that reflect grace and Presence. A just-baptized baby giggles, and an entire congregation is drawn into a new awareness of who they are. A dying man is given several months for “catching up with his soul.” From time to time you will be surprised by a story that cannot be easily explained. It will take your breath away—or, more exactly—give it back. Not always pretty or easy, these carefully nuanced and honest tales will challenge you to become more aware of the miracles in your own life.

—Rev. Tilda Norberg, Founder, Gestalt Pastoral Care. Author, Consenting to Grace

“A journalist for twenty years, I am always on the outlook for a good story. Bianca Podesta’s Miracles on My Watch, derived from her work in churches as well as from widely different settings, is a treasure trove. Thought provoking and inspiring. I couldn’t put it down.”

—Valerie Zehl, Award-Winning Columnist, Gannett
