Lisa is not legalistic or suggest in any way that I would be a better Christian if I did this. Instead she dives into the heart of God and how we can follow after it in many different ways. Fasting is just one of them. But I must add that this book did more for my entire spiritual walk than just specifically for the idea of fasting. Lisa is an encourager. She does a fabulous job of encouraging me in every aspect of my journey of faith.
Her writing style is relaxed and soothing. It feels like having a coffee with Lisa at a quaint little tea house. She fills each of her points with abundant scriptures. You become friends with her before you finish the book. She shares a lot of insight from her own life. I particularly loved her section on the experience of 9-11 and how her husband and family was affected that day and how God used fasting to call her spirit into prayer. Very powerful!
Pick up this book. It is a must read! In fact, I will tell you that I normally give away my copies of review books to my library. However this one is staying right where it is - on my bedside table. (Well, after I loan it out to my friends that is.)
Thank you Lisa for gently calling me to a closer relationship with my heavenly Father. May He bless you as you continue to touch the lives of other women.
I received a free copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an HONEST review. I am not required to provide a positive response.
