DebReads5 Stars Out Of 5Hope and BelieveFebruary 11, 2019DebReadsMeets Expectations: 5Yet another divine appointment with a book. I love how time and again, God chooses to speak to me through books that I am drawn to and can in no way ignore. He constantly speaks truths to me through something that gives me so much joy...reading! Reading this deeply, thought provoking book has challenged me to search my soul and examine my heart.
As I read about the concept of blessing guilt, it felt as though the author was speaking directly to me. Also, I was deeply stirred when she talked about facing a serious health condition with an "even if" prayer. Several months ago, I faced a frightening diagnosis with a similar "even if" prayer and mindset. God is constantly fighting for us and He is fiercely protective of us! This book reminded me that God has allowed certain things to happen in my life, and He has used those experiences to sustain and nurture me.
At the end of each chapter, I was encouraged to spend time in reflection and prayer. Many times, I was moved to tears. Such precious moments! We serve a God who is very intentional and He cares about the details in our lives.
I really loved this book and have already been encouraging others to read it. Highly recommended!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
Sherry Joyce5 Stars Out Of 5Love this bookDecember 28, 2018Sherry JoyceQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book has been more helpful than any of the others I've gone through as I deal with fear and anxiety. Susie's insight has really helped me.
Melissa5 Stars Out Of 5This could change your lifeDecember 26, 2018MelissaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I'm not sure where to begin with this book. It's much more than a book. It's a place to take an honest look at yourself and lies you have believed for years and unearth them and allow Jesus to heal them.
If you actually take the time to do what this book suggests I can't see how your life won't be changed.
Through this book I unearthed a lie I never knew I believed but I knew I dealt with the consequences of the lie. A simple memory that I finally looked at and saw Jesus there. It was amazing to see where this lie came from and how Jesus was there trying to speak truth to me but I couldn't hear Him over all the noise in my head, I wasn't a believer at the time, but Jesus was still there.
If you know there are things you need to deal with in your life but you aren't sure what it is or what to do, I highly recommend this book. Take your time and allow the steps and God's truth to heal you.
A copy of this book was given to me through Netgalley.com. All opinions are my own.
KelaAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Exactly what I needed in my life!October 31, 2018KelaAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Susie Larson has always been a favorite author of mine. When Fully Alive came in the mail, I was ready and needing to receive the message that was inside. With chapter titles like, "He Restores", "I Feel Guilty and Ashamed", "I'm Insecure", and "I'm Selfish", I knew that I was going to get help with healing from struggles I'd faced.
One of my favorite quotes is, "We need to walk with Jesus through our past and let Him speak to us so He can show us that His love is more than powerful enough to redeem and heal every aspect of who we are."
Susie is a Holy Spirit-filled writer whom you can tell spends quality time with Father God. I'm thankful that she shares with us what He shares with her.

Susie's use of personal stories, research, and information from other experts add vulnerability and authenticity to this conversation. I would highly recommend readers to attend to the extra areas offered at the end of each chapter. Going deeper in this way will add another layer of value to your investment! Thank you for this GIFT, Susie!
