Publisher's Description

You are standing in what feels like a wasteland where there is no growth, no water, and you cannot hear God's voice. So, how did you get here, and how do you get out? When I'm Found in the Desert Place is a map to that can help lead you out of this desert. It helps pinpoint where your Christian walk is lacking and teaches you to tune into God to fix it. Author Maria Elliott distanced herself from God during a five year battle with mental illness through her early teen years. Through it God showed Maria what it really means to live for Him. After learning these things, she came into contact with several people in her age group who seemed stuck- that is, they deeply desired a relationship with God that busted beyond the boundaries of the status quo, but the status quo was all they knew - watered-down, convenient Christianity. Speaking to the older teen, Elliott shares candid personal stories that are relevant and relatable. Using key Scripture references, she shows you how to apply Biblical wisdom in this day and age, and provides insight into tough questions you struggle with on a regular basis. You will learn how to overcome temptations, effectively witness to others, confidently hear from God without second-guessing yourself, and figure out what to do with your life. Maria explains that being in the desert means, simply, that we are spiritually anorexic. She says, Anorexics starve without realizing they're hungry. If you ask an anorexic why she isn't eating, she'll tell you she just isn't hungry - and it's the truth. She has trained her body to be numb to hunger. In the same way, we can get so complacent and comfortable that we lose our hunger for the King of kings. When I'm Found in the Desert Place challenges you to stand out from that of a complacent Christian generation and join the ranks of the heroic, world-changing, hell-shaking Christians that heaven applauds
