have you read it?

via
I stumbled upon this book by what I thought was an accident.  Although now, I am not so sure it was an accident...  over the past several months, I have really been having some inner struggles with my faith.  don't get me wrong, I believe in God, and Jesus, and Heaven but don't feel like I have the relationship with God that my heart is seeking... I have been having lots of conversation with those around me and their churches and beliefs and have been thinking about possibly attending some different churches to figure out where I fit in.  I read this book in a few hours, and felt moved.  It gave me the courage I needed to seek the faith that I want and I feel I am finally being proactive.  This Sunday, we are attending a new church and feel it is a huge step in this journey of "finding my faith." 

I really feel like I have some amazing influences surrounding me right now and that makes this desire for a stronger faith even greater.  Thanks to you! 

"Seek the Lord while he may be found: call on him while he is near."

  1. Elizabeth, I luv this and your heart for "wanting more". I read pieces of this book (a family member owned it) but I've heard great things about it. :)

  2. Yeah! God is good isn't He? He can use a 4 year old to show His glory. Amazing.

  5. Oh my gosh... my husband just picked up this book at my parents house today and is laying on the couch reading it as I type. How ironic!

  6. I've been wanting to read this book. Ever since I saw the interview on Today, it has been in the back of my mind. Thanks for the push I needed. Will be my next read after I finish "1000 Gifts".
