Random God Sightings by Kelly Hanes

You hunger to experience God. You long to know if He’s really there, if He’s really even concerned with you. So did Kelly Hanes—until she discovered a way to ask, a way to seek, and she began to see God, really see Him, in the most unexpected places.

God buys lottery tickets. God eats Doritos. God is a girl. God plays video games.

With her eyes wide open, Kelly beautifully recorded twenty-six true encounters with God. These poignant, down-to-earth vignettes reveal a God who yearns to show up in our lives—in our homes, in our classrooms, in the park. God is at work all around us. He is real and accessible. He is working through random people, believers and non-believers alike, through you even—Kelly will show you how to look.

This beautiful, inspiring work of God’s truth in the world was released to all major markets on June 20, 2019 in paperback and e-book editions.
