Great Christian guidebook for living
April 13, 2012
Speaker and Bible teacher Connie Cavanaugh uses scriptural principles, along with pertinent anecdotes as illustrations, to show how to follow God's leading in life. Enlightening insights seasoned with humor bring this book to life and make it as memorable as it is applicable. The author honestly shares her own shortcomings and experiences as proof of the way God can lead and change a person.
Following God One Yes at a Time: Overcoming the 6 Barriers that Hold You Back is a textbook for sound living anyone can follow. It advises when checking whether to move forward, to ask whether something is simple, immediate, and possible. God works through such circumstances, and this book spells out the path clearly. God also sends proofs: peace, power, provision, and His presence. In addition, He will help overcome common barriers: fear, pride, guilt, shame, comparison, and doubt.
I recommend this book as a helpful tool for how to live the Christian life and follow the dream God has given you.
"Now, that's a great title," my husband commented. I agree.
But wait--there's more. Author, speaker, and humorist Connie Cavanaugh's latest book goes beyond its catchy label to offer personal, practical truth. FOLLOWING GOD ONE YES AT A TIME: OVERCOMING THE 6 BARRIERS THAT HOLD YOU BACK (Harvest House, 2011) is no spiritualized self-help tome. Instead, Cavanaugh offers readers biblical wisdom and godly insights spiced with inspirational stories. Combined, these move readers toward surrender to God's desires and an understanding of how to reach them.
The author lightens a heavy topic with her transparency about the ups and downs of her own spiritual journey. As she gains access to readers' lives, she serves less as teacher or expert and more as funny companion, guide, and friend. Like the subjects of her stories, readers will learn to embrace grace as they see its power displayed.
If you long for more in your walk with Christ or feel blocked from true intimacy with him, allow Connie Cavanaugh to help you draw near. She may be the author, but the Finisher pervades this fresh, fun volume in ways words can't express.
Read this book and experience God. That's a gift even a great title can't explain.
I recently had the pleasure of reading Connie Cavanaugh's "Following God One Yes at a Time" and found it to be very practical and also very convicting. At times, Connie had me laughing out loud at the escapades of her family. Her ability to share stories and then make such sound and practical spiritual application is truly amazing. God has given Connie a unique message and a way to share it that has touched many and I believe will touch many more.
Following God One Yes at a Time speaks of the God-given dreams, even sense of destiny that is within each and every one of us. Realization comes as we embrace a disposition of saying â€˜yes' to God. Connie is honest, humorous, biblical, and relevant. She is a masterful storyteller. She is very transparent regarding her fears and faux pas. More than one of her stories still has me chuckling, especially the one about the returned store items! The book is entertaining, but it is more than that. It invites the reader to realize the dreams that God has planted within each and every one of us. -Pastor Harry (Dr.) Harry Strauss, author of From Throwing in the Towel to Staying in the Fight
