The world-changing events of that day became the catalyst that first sent Janine into a deep depression and later to the darkest parts of Africa in her search for the meaning of life. What happened next was a roller coaster ride from the board room to the streets of Africa where she found herself standing face to face with the AIDS pandemic and trying to understand what to do with 15 million orphans who are left in its wake. Her story is brutally honest and will take you straight to the heart of the issue of Africa's great need.
Even the most seasoned African traveler will have their eyes opened again. All we need to do is say, "It's not okay with me, either" and then act.

Jerry Steinhauer5 Stars Out Of 5March 6, 2007Jerry SteinhauerMaxwell has written a compelling read about the plight of the AIDS pandemic in sub-Sahara Africa. The story of how God wrenched her heart away from her comfortable existence, and called her and her family to serve the orphans and poor is an extraordinary tale of God's call on a life and a response of obedience. This book begs to be read in a single setting, and yet pondered at great length over time.You cannot read this without gaining enlightenment to the plight of the African continent and those who inhabit it. But beware - it will challenge you in ways that might just lead you to ponder the question - "Am I making enough of a difference with the life God gave me?"
Jessie5 Stars Out Of 5February 11, 2007JessieThis book makes you aware of so much that you might have not been aware of before. This book has changed my life forever and my outlook on life. It also has brought me closer to God and has influenced me to help out in Africa my entire life (with mostly Heart for Africa)! I am so thankful for Janine Maxwell and her sharing her own story. I do not imagine doing anything with my life that will take away the passion to serve Africa in me. This story is unforgetful, and you WILL want to help the problem in Africa. I want to travel around Africa and help "street kids", now. Janine has transformed me into an Africa-loving Christian (more of a Christian than before), and she is the most inspirational person that I have ever met. I LOVE her, and she is amazing! Now, I have a heart for Africa and want to know God even better, and I hope your life will be changed by this story. "It's Not Okay With Me" is a MUST read for all.
