Miracles Happen Only in Africa
Michele Perry may be an unlikely person to start a missionary orphanage in war-torn Sudan. Born without her left hip and leg, she is no stranger to overwhelming impossibility. She's learned from childhood to rely fully on God, who constantly surprises her--and she and her Sudanese children, more than one hundred of them, have witnessed him moving in miraculous and wondrous ways again and again.
Here she shares some of these amazing, inspiring stories. More than that, she shows how readers can genuinely, fully experience God in their everyday lives--whether in Africa or at home, wherever they are. She helps them understand what he looks like, what it means to hear his voice, what it's like to see a vision, and how to recognize the holy in the ordinary. With these practical keys, believers will be able to open the floodgates of life changing, supernatural encounters with God.
CambriaBoulder, COAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5An Inviting BiographyFebruary 19, 2013CambriaBoulder, COAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4An Invitation to the Supernatural Life by Michelle Perry is a one-of-a-kind book. She shares her visions and miraculous experiences that she's had since she was a child. Initially, from the description, I did expect more of the book to be about experiences she's had in Africa (from her bio, perhaps?), but they did come later in the book.
Her book takes you right into her life as she invites you ("dear reader") to come in and experience her memories with her. Her vivid stories, from the poignant to the humorous, help the reader recognize and remember God moving in his or her own life.
One of my favorite experiences from her book is one where she did NOT feel or experience the supernatural but continued living the faith anyways. I think many people can relate to that.
If you are searching for something inspirational or new ideas of how to connect with God in your life, this book is for you.
I appreciate Chosen publishers for allowing me to give an honest opinion of this book.
NoreenColoradoAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5An InvitationSeptember 4, 2012NoreenColoradoAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have reviewed Michele Perry's book, An Invitation To The Supernatural Life and would highly recommend this book to anyone thirsting and hungering for a deeper walk with Jesus. I have not received any payment for reviewing this book. Michele weaves her life journey, through her childhood here in the U.S. as well as her current life as a missionary to over 100 orphans in So.Sudan. Her focus has always been on Jesus , the Giver of all and not on His gifts. She has seen miracles in Africa as well as here. I had a hard time putting this book down; there are prayers throughout this book as well as questions to take you deeper into all that the Lord has for us. The scripture references are accurate. I plan to reread this book, spending more time delving into the journey He has for me. I would encourage you to get this book, it won't disappoint you!
Kitty KittyCOAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful book!July 31, 2012Kitty KittyCOAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I feel honored to get to write this review of Michele Perry's new book, "An Invitation to the Supernatural Life." I received a copy of this book free of charge from the author for the purpose of reviewing it. I had the privilege of also reviewing her previous book. Michele Perry's life has been difficult in many ways but she sees only the glorious parts where Jesus sustained her through the rough times. At the present time she is a missionary in the very dangerous rural Sudan. She ministers to over 100 orphans there and they all call her Mama.
This extraordinary book is a call to the reader to draw closer in their walk with Jesus and deepen their relationship with Him. After reading this book I am even more determined to do just that. And I am awestruck at the prospect of where that may lead me. Michele has a very vibrant way of describing these things, but she also has very practical advice on dealing with heavenly beings - demons: don't give them so much attention. Leave your attention focused on Jesus; angels - look to them for help, converse with them, but do not in any way worship them. And encounters with angels are very real when you are plugged in to the Source. These are not the New Age angels (demons) that are so popular in today's culture. These are the warrior /helpers Jesus sends to our aid.
There is much more to this book than what I state above. It is an encouragement to live like Enoch who was so close to God that one day he just walked on into Heaven with God. I would very much like to be that close to Him, too. I will leave the rest to you. Don't miss this book. It will radically change the way you look at yourself and at God.
I would recommend reading Michele's first book, "Love Has a Face," and getting familiar with her and her incredible story. It will help you deal with the reality presented in this book. For some it may seem surreal and fantastic but read your owner's manual (The Bible) and see if these things are not true. Test it against the Truth of the scriptures. And then dare to step out and pursue that closer walk with your Savior.
Ann NYCYew York, NYAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Take the invitation!July 5, 2012Ann NYCYew York, NYAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The title of the book is perfect, "An Invitation to the Supernatural Life". I expected to like the book, but it was far more than I anticipated. Do you ever wonder if it might be possible to connect more deeply with God? Do you hunger for a more meaningful life? Do you get frustrated when your daily demands pull you away from spiritual activates? Read this book - it will give you a new perspective.
I was delighted to find that the book had both solid content and engaging stories, and on top of that it is written beautifully. By the end of the first chapter I had already laughed and cried and prayed. What more could you want in a book?
Michele seamlessly weaves together her personal story, including both her encounters with God and her work with orphans in South Sudan. She is not naÃÂ¯ve and sentimental about them, rather she shares the astounding stories of their own faith, and the amazing grace they extend to the very people who have traumatized them.
As she says herself, she is an unlikely candidate to be a missionary in South Sudan. Yet the very things that make her journey implausible are immensely encouraging and inspiring. I catch myself thinking, "well, if Michele can do thus and such, surely I can do something beyond my own comfort zone and current capabilities."
I am torn between telling all my friends to buy the book right away, or keeping it a lovely secret so I can buy everyone a copy for Christmas.
