Francine5 Stars Out Of 5Relevant for todayAugust 6, 2019FrancineSo often I hear these great Christian songs and wonder "how do they come up with these lyrics?" After reading Mike's book, I was able to see how their lives and experiences play such a huge role in it. God has shaped Mike's life in such a way that he is now able to share what God has revealed to him in a humble, and sometimes humorous, way. There are so many nuggets (and boulders) of wisdom within the pages of this book. I highlighted so many of them during my first read and I am certain I will find many more as I reread the book. During this season of my life, God has intertwined similar things that Mike has faced. May I be as bold as Mike to share them with others and recognize that God is fulfilling His plan for My Life.
JWL5 Stars Out Of 5Beautiful Insight Into A Life Struggling To Know GodAugust 5, 2019JWLQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Disclaimer: I received an advanced reader copy from WaterBrook and Multnomah.
This is a beautiful book written by a very honest and forthcoming man. You will walk away from this book not only knowing Mike, but knowing what struggle covered in faith and joy looks and feels like. It was refreshing hearing a voice that is not trying to sell something or push a new fad that is guaranteed to bring you closer to God in five easy steps. He only wants you to love God more by hearing how God has worked in his story. Mike does a great job sharing his story, sharing his continual pursuit of knowing God, knowing his word, and loving his people. I highly recommend giving it read.
margie5 Stars Out Of 5Mike is AmazingAugust 5, 2019margieI have had the opportunity to see Tenth Avenue North in concert, and after the concert late at night
Mike was out behind the stage talking and praying with people. He was genuinely interested in your story.
Fast forward to hearing he wrote a book and getting chosen for the launch team. This book embodies his humbleness I witnessed years ago, and since also seeing him on talk shows, he is exactly the same now, showing me he is truly a genuine person.
I took a long time to get through the book. I wanted to digest and re-read areas I highlighted to just soak it all in. Mike is candid and humble. He has taken events in his life and realized a focus early on that this world is not about him, its about people, and showing Gods love to them.
He discusses his trials, the people who helped him along the way, his realization that pride has no place in his life, his family and his role as a Godly husband and father, listening to the wisdom of his wife and treasuring and protecting the hearts of his children.
I learned so much that brought me down to earth with some struggles I have as well and how to overcome them, how to foster in your heart things that you love, dream and believe in, how God gives us so much more joy and peace when we relax and trust more and rest in Him. Letting God navigate our lives as we move forward bit by bit as we see His directions.
Highly recommended read, and I hear they have a new album out too #noshame
Caitlin Lassiter5 Stars Out Of 5A Must ReadAugust 3, 2019Caitlin LassiterQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Disclaimer: I received an advanced reader copy from WaterBrook and Multnomah.
As a longtime fan of Tenth Avenue North, I've been excitedly anticipating the day when Mike Donehey released a book. Mike has a true gift for explaining the Gospel and matters of faith through captivating stories, heartfelt lessons, and hard-fought insight gained from years of authentic ministry. For almost a decade now, Mike's words have had a tremendous impact on my life and have consistently led me closer to the Father through a perspective unique to the way Donehey relates the Gospel this book is a continuation of that.
In Finding God's Life For My Will, Donehey explores the generations-old question - "how do I find God's will for my life?" - in a way that makes you dig deeper into your own beliefs and asks you to rediscover the purpose you were made for. Housing many of the stories and teachable moments fans have heard Donehey share on the road at live shows over the years, this book will inspire and encourage you page after page with times that Donehey saw God show up and speak truths that have eternally changed him.
If you've ever found yourself uplifted by Donehey's words and teaching, this book is one you'll want to read. Beyond that, if you've ever wrestled with the question of what God's will for your life is, Finding God's Life For My Will is a must-read. As Donehey takes readers on a journey of discovering the promise of God for the life of every believer, there's no doubt that you'll close the book a different person than when you opened it.
Chandler5 Stars Out Of 5Fun, Refreshing, and Encouraging PerspectiveAugust 2, 2019ChandlerQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Mike Donehey has a way with words. If his songs aren't enough to convince of that, this book will! In a personable and relatable way, Mike shares so many pieces of his story that encourage readers to stop chasing after answers and start chasing after the heart of God. The road is not always easy, and Mike's shared experiences bear witness to that time and time again. Still, I was left with such a sense of peace after reading this book. It's okay to not have it all figured out. It's okay to have questions and to have doubts. It's okay to struggle. The love of God is bigger than anything the world can throw at us, and Mike does an excellent job reminding readers that the best thing we can do is to love God and to share that love with others.
I received an advance copy of Mike's book from WaterBrook and Multnomah.
