What would life be like if Christian principles were followed daily? Suzi Johnson has attempted to do just that, and she shares her story. This book contains the wisdom she has gathered over the years of living life with God at the center.
She contrasts what life is like when completely depending on God, as well as, what life is like when not doing that. The author includes examples from her own life when she relied on God, and not herself, along with the resulting blessings. She recounts the time she had only one hour to get many hours of tax work done, but by asking God to take over, she was able to finish it in the small amount of time she had. By trusting God, she had a miraculous outcome.
Family is also very important to the author, and she stresses how vital it is to make sure your children understand what it means to be a Christian. For instance, despite raising their boys as Christians, the author and her husband were shocked to discover their children had never learned some very basic tenets of their faith. She shares what happened in her own family's life when they made the decision make sure their boys knew what they believed. As part of that change, they made a stronger commitment to church attendance. That decision had far-reaching consequences in all of their lives.
The author includes some very clever ways to remember important precepts for success, which she calls the Tic-Tac-Toe--Success in a Row." A win-win solution will be the result of incorporating those concepts, which are:
First row. The ASK Principle: Ask, Seek, and Knock.
Second row, The Formula: Preparation (+), Success (=), and Opportunity (+)
Third row, The "Be" Vitamins: Be Informed, Be Involved and Believe
This book is not a hard to understand theological work, but rather it is written in an easy to read, down-to-earth style. She has kept her instructions simple, with her overriding message being to trust God, and have faith in Him. Enlarge My Territory is a combination of a memoir of Mrs. Johnson's life, along with some suggestions about how to live in a God-centered way. She includes lots of scripture, and other creative methods to remember rewarding ways to live. The real-life situations the author shared were especially enjoyable and helpful. I recommend this 5-star book to anyone who enjoys true stories about people who have successfully followed God's principles.
