We can't comprehend Him, but we can experience Him!

Who our God is and how He works cannot be captured or contained. He is unstoppable, unfathomable and untamable. He is wild. And He is beckoning us to pursue Him beyond our circumstances, beyond our emotions and beyond our logic into the glorious mystery that is Him.

Offering miraculous, inspiring stories of lives and circumstances transformed by the Holy Spirit, author and speaker Kim Meeder shows that God isn't calling us to fully understand Him; He is calling us to fully trust and experience Him. She gives practical, everyday ways to pursue Him more passionately and trust Him more fiercely. The wild beauty and glory of our God are calling. And in this hallowed, thrilling place, we will see His face reflected in the miraculous--and we will experience the limitless nature of our wild God.

"Kim's masterful language in Encountering Our Wild God shows not only a life immersed in continual wild devotion to the Spirit, but a lifestyle that flows directly from that wildly wonderful place. Her book is a very not-boring devotional of sorts that colorfully illustrates the rich personality of our precious God, who rules the universe perfectly and yet is incredibly enjoyable to be with. This book will upgrade the color of your life from drab to brilliant by connecting you to the wildly adventurous Holy Spirit in a way that is reachable for all who immerse themselves in its pages."

"Kim has written this powerful book, inviting each reader to encounter God on each page. Be ready to experience God's presence as you join her insightful and fun writing! What an awesome encounter waits for you in this book!"

Sarah Bowling, founder, Saving Moses

"I once heard it said that God is more willing to speak to us and lead us than we are willing to listen and be led. If that is indeed accurate, then I suspect many of us are missing out on God's glorious plan for our lives. But what is that plan, and how can we discover it? Encountering Our Wild God is a powerful and compelling new book that speaks deeply to who God truly is, what His plan and purpose is for our lives and how we can experience and revel in His magnificence. Get ready for the ride of your life. Thank you, Kim Meeder, for showing us the way to Him!"

Frank Sontag, founder, Kingdom Men's Gathering

"The moment I read the title of Kim's new book, I was in. I live for life-altering encounters with the Holy Spirit. Yet I was not prepared for the deep heart journey ahead of me as I dove into Encountering Our Wild God. The way Kim so effortlessly pours out her wisdom, experiences and stories pulled me in for days and opened my eyes of faith to see and understand more clearly how we have this unimaginable opportunity to intimately know our untamable Creator and partner with Him in the adventure of knowing and demonstrating His heart for humanity. We will never reach the end of His nature or His love. This will be a book I revisit over and over."
