    Heartily recommended for anyone desiring to dip even a toe into the stream of possibility to dream of what God could do in and through them! With compassion, the written words allow one to glimpse into how God can show up in ones humanity and invade hardship and destitution for His glory.

    Having first met Kristen in 1992, when we shared the same dormitory hall in undergraduate school, her character even then was graced with a sincere passion to write truth and make a profound difference. Having just finished the book, the pages encapsulate her faith in God and obedience in the midst of sincere humility and transparency. One can see the beautiful transformations take place in multiple situations where to the human eye, it resembles nothing more than a "mess". In obedience, the theme of "yeses" become a beautiful portrayal of humanity and God's redeeming transformation and provision in a God-sized task and the story of His work of drawing others with like-minded hearts to make an eternal and global difference.

    It is practical embracing motherhood, marriage, family life, and reaching beyond the borders of home. It is profound in that Kristen's story, when given to God, becomes a glorified example of what He can do with a "yes," even when that yes comes with personal cost and undeniable joy.

    I literally read the book in 24 hours. I could not put it down. I underlined and wrote it the margins. I stopped to pray several times. This book is the story of Mercy House, a ministry birthed from a blogging trip with Compassion International. This book is the story of a marriage redeemed and made stronger. This book is the story of children and chaos. This book is the story of a woman who was willing to say yes to God in the middle of her mess.

    But most of all, this book is the story of a God who looks at us in all our smallness and says, "Yes, those things you do, those things you think are small, they matter. They matter to Me and they matter for eternity."

    Rhinestone Jesus is a peak into Kristen's heart as she shares candidly how God turned her from a teenager on fire for God but content to live a "safe" Christian life, into a woman broken through life's challenges and unexpected experiences, now willing to say "yes" to God and trust Him in each moment, regardless of the outcome.

    The book is a call to authenticity in the Christian walk. She challenges us to push through the fears of "what if" and instead to ask "what next God?" as we move forward one step at a time in faith.

    Kristen shares her personal struggles in ministry, motherhood, and marriage and paints a picture of God's incredible redemption through it all.

    Not just a memoir, the book walks the reader through his or her own journey of learning to say "yes" to God's call by providing thought provoking questions at the end of each chapter that beg for reflection and action.

    She reminds us that "saying yes isn't really about doing it all, it's about saying yes right where you are."

    This book is for you if:

    You've ever wondered if your ordinary life can make a significant difference in God's kingdom

    You're not sure if God can use your broken life for His glory

    You need some encouragement and a reminder that world-changers have sticky floors & dirty laundry on the floor too

    You want to be inspired by someone who said "yes" to God and it changed everything {in a good way!}

    I received a complimentary pre-release copy of the book for review from Tyndale House Publishers. All opinions are my own & I'm proud to recommend this book, as it had a powerful effect on my own journey of learning to say "yes" to God.
