LindaLong Beach, CAAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Life Changing!August 12, 2013LindaLong Beach, CAAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Fed up With Flat Faith: 10 Ways to Pump Up Your Faith, by Kathy Howard was an excellent inspiring life changing book about uplifting your faith. Reading this book, happened to come at an appropriate time in my life. I have been going through different life changing moments in the past two years that affected my faith. I was either up or down. But, since reading this book by Kathy Howard has given me a different view on my faith, and how God is always there with us no matter what happens in our lives.
Sometimes, we only see the temporal of our situation that is happening in our lives. Whereas, we forget to see the whole big picture of what God is doing in our lives. There is so much to learn from this book. I came away from reading Fed Up with Flat Faith with a newness, regenerating, and excited about growing closer to God.
I received this book from The Book Club Network, Inc. to review. I encourage all those who are lacking or struggling in their faith to read this book...it was great!
CarolynAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Pump Up Your FaithJuly 23, 2013CarolynAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I liked Fed up with Flat Faith by Kathy Howard, because the author's focus is to "learn how to position ourselves before God so he can accomplish in our lives only what He can accomplish." She provides ten attitudes and actions to go from routine, expected, nothing changes, right living, and "doing" church faith to a passionate pursuit of the heavenly Father. Reading and understanding what the author was saying was very convicting to me and my prayer is that I won't settle for a flat faith but will spend more time in the Word, be obedient, serve others, and share His love. I loved Howard's use of Scriptures throughout the book and her reference to books by well-known Christian authors that can be read to further ignite one's faith.
Thank you New Hope Publishers for offering it free in exchange for my honest opinion and BookFun.org that made it all happen!

This is a great Spiritual Growth book to help you grow closer to Christ. It has been a long time since I read a book that could actually help me to grow. The author Kathy Howard gives sensible, easy to do ideas that help you bring your relationship with Christ to the next level. The things taught are presented in a practical ways, gives inspirational testimonies to the lesson taught and she backs it up with Biblical truths. She goes through 5 attitudes that show us where we went wrong, reminds us of our first love, and gives us a glimpse of the big picture and how our plans are not always his plans. After she has helped us search our hearts she shows us 5 steps to move us forward. If you follow and adapt her steps you can achieve a faith that will set your hearts on fire for our Lord. Her ideas teach us how to study and connect with God in a deeper way. Study questions for each chapter are included and a guide of recommendations for study tools. I highly recommend this book for new and older Christians.
UrailakOregonAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Fire Up Your Faith!July 22, 2013UrailakOregonAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4How would you describe your faith? Fiery or flat? Vibrant or withered? Passionate or parched & passive? Growing or stunted? Do you feel like reading the Bible is a drudgery or praying makes you snooze? Would you like to feel alive and active spiritually and live your faith out loud and enthusiastically? Fed Up with Flat Faith encourages and equips you to move towards that goal. The author, Kathy Howard, presents five attitudes and five actions that aim to help readers adjust and align themselves to be ready for God's work in their lives. She shares from her own experience and shares what Biblical principles have helped her overcome her flat faith condition. She also uses some Bible characters as examples such as Mary and Martha, Abraham and Sarah, Eli and Samuel, Noah, Rahab, Paul, David, Joshua, and more.
I'm really glad that the author is realistic (mentioning that this won't be an easy, instant fix and that following all the steps doesn't guarantee you will be having "mountaintop" experiences at all times and never have spiritual lows again) and that her teachings are Scripturally sound & Christ-centered. She emphasizes a life of total surrender to God and of obedience while warning against the false belief of the Prosperity Gospel and/or thinking that obedience results in a problem-free life. I also like the fact that she is missions-minded and loves the Body of Christ. I enjoyed reading this faith-fueling book and I highly recommend it. At the end of the book, you will find questions for reflection and discussion for each chapter. Great for a small group study! The author also includes Appendix 1: How to Have a Relationship with Jesus and Appendix 2: Recommended Study Helps (lists of Bible Dictionaries, Bible Handbooks, Bible Commentaries, and more). If you are fed up with your flat faith, then it's time to fire up your faith and let it burn brightly for Jesus! Check out this book and get ready to be pumped up and go forth living for God and serving Him with gusto!

shanfromcanCanadaAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Fall in love with Him againJuly 15, 2013shanfromcanCanadaAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Jesus came to give us life, and abundantly but sometimes we get caught in the humdrum. Are you stuck there? Do you need a lift? Well this book will get you going on the right track. Through attitudes but more importantly actions, you will be able to move forward. It is a quick read but it is going to take time, patience and trust in Him to put the oomph back in your relationship, to fall in love with Him all over again.
As I read this book the chorus: I keep falling in love with Him over and over and over and over again!
That's what it's all about. Let's return to our first love and the excitement of it. This book will guide you along the way.
I was given this book by bookfun.org in exchange for my honest opinion.
