The Unexpected, a new book by sporting champion Iona Rossely draws upon forty real-life experiences to empower and strengthen faith.

The Unexpected: A 40-day devotional for living with unexpected times is a practical guide on how to live in unexpected and changing times, penned by former international sporting champion, Iona Rossely. This new publication is a continuation of her compelling story from artist, to speed skier, to endurance horse racer to author, as outlined in her previous autobiographical book, Racing on Empty (2020).

Walking us through a series of her personal experiences as Covid-19 hit the world, Iona’s devotional offers a roadmap for how to live with uncertainty by handing our tomorrows to God. Finding herself separated from her husband by lockdown regulations for nearly a year, Iona stayed on their farm in Northern New South Wales, Australia, an experience that inspired her to write The Unexpected. Their home is also host to a unique gathering called Prayer, Praise and Pecan, a one-of-a-kind outdoor farm church, where she has witnessed many incredible stories which she weaves into The Unexpected.
Iona’s sim with this devotional guide is to help readers know that whatever the world throws at them, God has them firmly under His protection. Walking a supernatural life during turmoil is possible, when we trust in God, a path I am always learning. When you hand Him control of your life, your journey takes on a new and exciting turn.

The Unexpected is available in bookshops and online.

As a caterpillar goes out of its dark cocoon, grows its wings, and flies high up in the sky, I acknowledge my role in the entire process of the written word's metamorphosis through The Chrysalis BREW Project. I believe that beauty and goodness exist in everything and everyone - may we let that emerge and shine in each word we read, concoct, write, or share.

One thought on “Featured Book: “The Unexpected” by Iona Rossely”
  1. I can’t possibly having been separated from my husband during the pandemic. They were such troubling times, especially at first. This is quite an appropiate devotional for our era.
