This book showed me how obedience to God is not a burden but a victory over doubt, temptation and failures. This book is filled with encouraging statements to uplift and tells us to seek the plan God has for us. The last chapter has 9 practical ways to point you in the right direction and is one I will read over and over again. Tim states "We can't enjoy the victories of today if we're continually dwelling on the defeats of yesterday. ~ A negative mind will never produce a positive life!" Thanks Tim..

Reviewer: Janice S. Garey
The subtitle of this book, Laying Aside Your Plan for God's Purpose, encompasses the main theme of Tim Timberlake's book. I found the writing style easy to read and the personal anecdotes to enhance the major points made. The book does not assume the reader has a thorough background in the Bible, so it is ideal as a tool for those reaching out to seekers and new believers. It also works well as a refresher course for anyone who may have strayed away from church and needs a new place to begin personal revival or restoration.
The information about practices to help in defeating the cycle of moving from temptation to sin aids the arsenal of tools Christians have to defeat sin. The author relates that he went through a season of doubt and left the faith for a bit until he was challenged by a blessing and conversation he received from his father just before his father died. From this you realize the author is authentic in knowing about that which he speaks of first hand. Scripture verses are provided to support the author's written words.
This is the kind of book you want to pass along to your sons and daughters as reinforcement of your teaching in the home when they leave the nest for college. It is the kind of book you might give to someone in the neighborhood who is of another faith and wants to know more about how Christians live and the difference Christ makes in life. I do want to place this book in the church library for any seekers who may visit.
I received this book from bookfun.org in exchange for reading it and posting an honest review. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to have a tool for sharing the gospel in an easy to read format. It is straightforward and gives all the basics needed to begin life as a faithful and true Christian. It challenges those who have things they need to delete from their lives so Jesus takes His place as the main event in their lives.

CherNW OhioAge: 55-65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Best book to change your lifeApril 10, 2015CherNW OhioAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Tim Timberlake has brought to you in book form a guide on how to ABANDON your old life, your old doubts, shows you how to get past roadblocks, how to discover a truly fulfilling life and to hunger for God and His word.
Each section in itself is a totally explained plan on how to discover how you really feel, what you are hiding and how to deal with those problems so that you can abandon those feelings and move on to a better God filled life. Each chapter on its own could be a study for a group or an involved in-depth study for ones self.
The writing is very clear, well explained and well written. It is not hard to navigate through the book at all. In fact, it is very pleasurable to do so. I would recommend this book, very soon to be on the market if not already.
