Item description for My 30 Days Under the Overpass: Not Your Ordinary Devotional by Mike Yankoski...

The author shares his intense reflections on God's thoughts and feelings toward the poor, broken, and downtrodden in this devotional so that readers may begin to change the world--not on their next mission trip, but now.

Publishers Description
Live Life Loud
You passed that same ol' bum on the street this morning. You sat next to some smelly girl on the subway last night. You ordered a burger from a worn-out cashier over your lunch hour. What do you think about these people? What does God think about them? "My 30 Days Under the Overpass" is not a devotional you will read in your quiet time, then carry on with your day. It's something you'll actually do--all day, every day--because these thirty days will rock you. Intense reflection on God's thoughts and feelings toward the poor, broken, and downtrodden will change you...and "you will" begin to change the world. Not on your next mission trip. Not at church next Sunday. But right here, right now.
Ask It.
How do you treat others--those you like, know, don't know, don't like? Those who fall into your comfort zone, and those who shove you outside of it?
Read It.
Mike Yankoski and his buddy, Sam, chose to become homeless to discover their answer.
Think It.
Would you go sleep under a bridge in the rain? Would you panhandle for your next meal? Would you help those who do?
Believe It.
"I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me," said Jesus (Matthew 25:45).
Live It.
This is not your average devotional. You'll read it, but you'll also "do" it. Get ready for a life change that will change lives.

"Mike takes Christ at His word, and challenges you to summon the courage to live the real Christian faith."
Dean R. Hirsch, President, World Vision International
Story Behind the Book
"Is God enough to sustain me? Is He trustworthy? Is He worth staking my life on? What happens if I die? Will I even survive? Such questions rang loudly in my mind as Sam and I decided to lay down everything in a full embrace of the homeless life. Some experiences were uncomfortable, some shocking, some disturbing, some hilarious, and still others frustrating. But five months of life on the streets has left us, our faith, and our lives forever changed. We've been back from the streets for two years, and now this devotional makes it possible for people to make real-life changes. It contains stories and reflections not included in "Under the Overpass" ." --Mike Yankoski

Reviews - What do customers think about My 30 Days Under the Overpass: Not Your Ordinary Devotional?

Good book  Oct 13, 2008
this book really inspired me into the practical things i can do when i see a homeless and to have an open, understanding heart for their unfortunate circumstances.
Must Read  Sep 15, 2008
This book is awesome. Eye opening. Must read for the entire nation. They should make this book a "Must Read" for Junior High School aged kids. It would really help open your eyes to the world.
Insightful  Feb 8, 2008
This book makes you take a new look at those individuals that are homeless and how God calls us to serve them.
inspiring, challenging  Aug 3, 2007
used this for a team that went to the union rescue mission in los angeles. team members were moved, convicted, transformed.

it's not a deep devotional, but it is biblical.
life changing   Apr 10, 2007
A mere 30 day journey with this book as a navigational guide and one will find not only conviction but encouragement for one's own "mission field" in life. Through the many personal trials, challenges, and victories of the author will shed new light on just what may define the term "missions or missionaries". This devotional is, just as it says, not your ordinary devotional. It offers reasonable and doable simple acts of kindness that can be carried out each and every day by the least of people to the greatest of people, people just loving and caring for their family, friends, neighbors and strangers.
