When God calls you to make an impact, feelings of fear, doubt, and insufficiency seem to automatically show up. As a matter of fact, they have been making appearances since the beginning of time in the lives of people like Adam and Eve, Elijah, Peter, and many others. And during those times:
- God asked Adam and Eve, "Where are you?" as a checkpoint for their relationship with Him.
- God asked Elijah, "What are you doing here?" to bring him out from the places of depression and frustration.
- Jesus asked Peter, "Do you love me?" to restore their relationship.
This book was very introspective and provided a means to look in on oneself. I really liked the four categories the author focused on: Make it Personal, Make it Connect, Make it Real, and Make it Last. These four points make for excellent talking points and provide a good stopping point to really think about the message the book has to offer. The book isn't overly emotional in tone or pushy about religion. This book isn't the fastest read I have experienced, but I never expected it to be. The reader may come away from this book feeling as if he/she learned something precious. I loved the personal stories and how I felt I got to know the author through this book.
The book had just enough interactive bits to it. The tidbits here and there of advice and helpful hints were sweet and meaningful. This book is definitely aimed at religious readers and recommended to them.
