What does real Christian service look like? Working in a church or teaching Sunday school? Serving the poor in the neediest parts of the world? Studying the Bible in a quiet place? Traveling around the globe to evangelize?

Maybe. But what if it looks a lot more like everyday life?

Here is good news for everyone who feels unexceptional and overlooked. God sees every act of service, no matter how dull and insignificant it may seem. His view of success is drastically different from the world's. It is often in ordinary situations and places -- not extraordinary ones -- that God teaches us lessons with eternal consequences.

With humor and honesty, teacher Ken Barnes takes us on his journey from tending chickens to assisting in a kitchen to sweating in a steel mill and more. Stories of frustration, joy, and every emotion in between reveal the true direction of being a disciple of Christ: the way up is always down. Joy in serving comes not from excitement or recognition. It comes from following the example of Christ, the ultimate servant.
