Reflections on a curious- asking, growing, learning- life.

Sufficient in Jesus
"We've been given a torch of faith to walk through a tunnel when we can't see where we're going, and thankfulness makes us brave along the way." ~Logan Wolfram
Curious. At first, it seems like an odd adjective to use to describe faith.
When I hear the word curious, I think of a child. A healthy child is constantly exploring, learning, and growing, and all their days are infused with curiosity. That's what makes them ask questions and try things they're unsure of. Their curiosity insists that there's more to the world than meets the eye.
On second thought, maybe "Curious Faith" is exactly what we need.
This book was written by a storyteller, that much is clear. Logan knows how to hold her life up to the Light and describe the colors that it carries. Whether she's telling us about the lowest lows (when a heart you love stops beating) or the sweetest gifts (when somebody finds hope again) there is passion in her words.
Chapter by chapter Logan shares her journey of curious faith, reflecting on bravery and pain and risk and possibility. She speaks about the moments that have meant so much to her, when new understanding has come. She lives believing that God is up to so many things, and we should keep our eyes open for them. Her description of watching an eclipse cover the moon is particularly moving. It reminded me that the predicted, expected, "natural" phenomena of eclipses and thunderstorms and springtime still tell us much about the God who loves us.
So.... a curious faith. It involves a lot of wondering and watching, waiting and wanting and worshipping. It's a good thing.
I thank David C Cook for providing me with a review copy in exchange for an honest opinion.
Four year's ago I had never heard of Logan Wolfram. That all changed, however, in the fall of 2012 when I decided to give this blogging thing a try. I had very little knowledge of the blogging world and when I ran across this conference called Allume which Logan and her team put on for bloggers...I signed-up. Logan's a Southern gal who ooozies God's love for others. She has a gift for making a whole room full of strangers feel welcome. She speak's truth and writes with the conviction of one who's been there and done that.
I'm excited to tell you a little about Logan's first book Curious Faith.
Review: We are born with this natural curiosity to discover, learn, and explore, but something happens as we grow into adults and life begins to demand much from us. Jobs, bills, family, friends, church, etc., and suddenly that curiosity that was so plentiful when we were children suddenly gets pushed to the back burner. We begin to question God's goodness...if this is all there is...and we settle for routine.
Logan helps us to once again explore the unlimited possibilities that God has for us. She invites us to overcome feelings and circumstances that stunt our growth and rob us of hope. Logan will help you discover the plans and purposes that God is waiting for you to engage in with Him.
Logan has poured her heart into writing this book...she has written with conviction and passion. If you are looking to reignite and rediscover all the curious and wondrous things that God is waiting to show you then grab a copy of this amazing book and get ready for an adventure that only God can give.
A great book. I highly recommend this thought provoking read.
