In a couple of recent posts (can be found HERE and HERE), I mentioned Joanna Weaver's book "Lazarus Awakening". Though this is a general review, those posts show how deeply the book touched me.
First and foremost, the necessary disclaimer: "I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review”. With that said.....
This book, as you can tell from the previous posts, really touched my heart. I highly recommend it! I expected a great book because of how much I enjoyed her previous book "Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World". It didn't disappoint! This was one of those books that as I began to highlight things that touched me, I ended up with more highlighting than not. As a matter of fact, I had to buy a new highlighter before I got to the end!
Joanna has a way of saying very profound things in a very simple way. Ways that can really reach the heart and "stick". If you are struggling with believing that God TRULY, DEEPLY loves YOU....this book is a must read. Sometimes it's easy for us to tell someone about how much God loves them, but then deep inside we don't feel like we are worth enough for that same love. This book helps throw that garbage thinking out the door!
Though I've not completed the 10-week Bible study at the end, I can only imagine what truths God will begin to speak and reveal by spending that time with Him with her guidance and encouragement. EXCELLENT book for Women's Ministry!
