Fay has lined up a blog tour to let readers know of its availability. Today is my turn to review her book.
Not only is this a book of empowerment, it's a book of exhortation, and of comfort:
One day I drove to my son Marcus’s home to deliver a family history I had just completed for him. I mentioned something about how difficult it was for our pioneer ancestors and how amazing it was for them to remain faithful under such hardships. His response stunned me. With passion he said, “Which is more damaging to your salvation—immorality or suffering death due to hunger? In some parts of the world, they’re both ever-present issues. Hardship due to exposure affects your attitude and faith, but getting caught up in the base deconstruction of society and immorality while sitting in a warm, cozy house is far more powerful and seductive.”
My father once said to me, “It doesn’t matter what happens to you. What matters is how you react to what happens to you.” Will our choices draw us closer to the Lord or bitterly away?
Here we can’t mince words, for ours is not an easy path. We are in a period of earth’s history when many individuals are taking a stand with Satan. But we have what it takes to stand for the right! It is doable. It is expected. And each time we choose the right and turn to the Lord, we grow in strength, confidence, insight, and wisdom. Depending on our choices, the bad things that happen to us can confirm our faith as it shapes our lives for the better. We then become increasingly aware of who and what we are and less fearful and more effective in our service.
This book is worth reading. Although it is short, Fay has packed it full of insights that will ring true and help us in our daily walk.
