Product Description

In Jesus Approaches, Elizabeth Kelly shares vivid stories of New Testament women whose encounters with Jesus freed them to flourish in life. The stories are supplemented with moving accounts from her own life, and from the lives of women like you, to demonstrate that sometimes the best way to find healing, strength, and wholeness in Christ is, ironically, to lead with vulnerability and openness.

In Jesus Approaches, Elizabeth Kelly shares vivid stories of New Testament women whose encounters with Jesus freed them to flourish in life. The stories are supplemented with moving accounts from her own life, and from the lives of women like you, to demonstrate that sometimes the best way to find healing, strength, and wholeness in Christ is, ironically, to lead with vulnerability and openness.

Ultimately, Jesus Approaches teaches that finding the fullness of life for which you were created begins with bringing your brokenness to the Lord.

Editorial Reviews

Kelly is an engaging storyteller who shares deeply personal narratives, both her own as well as those of modern women who have found a deeper relationship with the person of Jesus. Her suggestions for prayers and ideas on which to meditate truly invite the reader to find her own way into a lasting friendship with him.
 
-- U.S. Catholic

Reading Jesus Approaches is like listening to a friend as she shares encounters with Christ from the Nativity to His Resurrection. Her descriptions and the stories shared by other women show struggles, yet in Christ they have a very peaceful and calming effect. She describes God’s love for us as warm, as living, as glowing.
 
-- Catholic Library World

Kelly’s approach is very personal and devotional. She shares her own spiritual joys and struggles as she meditates on various women biblical characters.
