Linda Bello Ruiz4 Stars Out Of 5This is a great bookMarch 1, 2015Linda Bello RuizQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a great story. I identified with many points in Ms. Duvall's story. I applaud her honesty and willingness to open her life for others to see the good, the bad and the divine. After reading this true-life story, I have resolved to make more attempts to get out of God's way in my own life! Linda Bello-Ruiz, author of From Tears to Triumph, My Journey to The House of Hope.
Heidi5 Stars Out Of 5A Candid Testimony of Surrendering to God's WillFebruary 5, 2015HeidiRebecca Duvall's very candid account of her marriage and life as a non-believer, and then of her journey as a new Christian, reads like a personal journal. Duvall writes about her second marriage crumbling and her husband's chronic health issues with unflinching honesty. She includes an "In My Head" section in each chapter that describes what she was thinking and feeling at the time, which really helps the reader identify and relate with her struggles. Duvall explores what many of us have felt at one time or another, the "I don't deserve this" and "he's the one who needs to change, not me" attitude. And, once Duvall opens her heart to the Lord, she realizes she's still praying for God to fix others instead of asking Him to do His will in her life. In His Way
is a testimony that when we get "out" of His way, and surrender to His will, our life will be transformed.
Debbie Hunt5 Stars Out Of 5You won't be disappointed!February 4, 2015Debbie HuntQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I could not put this book down! I so appreciated Rebecca Duvall's courage in writing this book... The story of her life so far. I was reminded again how God never wastes the suffering we go through. Rebecca has been through a lot... Hard times before she knew God personally and the hard times continued after she began walking with the Lord. Through it all, He has never left her side. Thank you, Rebecca for writing this book and reminding us all that God is trustworthy, that He is working all things for good for those who put their trust in Him. Through her experience, God has worked miracles and even when He seems silent, she has come to trust Him - that He is in control and will never abandon her. I hope many read this book. They will be glad they did!
tadpolet5 Stars Out Of 5A must read!February 4, 2015tadpoletMeets Expectations: 5I just finished this book and am truly amazed at the strength, courage and honesty that exudes from Rebecca's writings. This is a book that I didn't want to put down because I was anxious to find out what happens next in her quest to love and trust in God. She was able to not only pull through things in her life that most of us would not be able to, but to turn much adversity into learning experiences and spiritual growth. With brutal honesty she shares her struggles and triumphs. A must read!
steph5 Stars Out Of 5if you have kids, been divorced, been married, lost a parent or tried to live up to someone elses expectations, this book is for you!February 4, 2015stephQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Title "In His Way" is a little misleading. Here I thought I was going to be reading a story about "obedience" and being in God's will.... NOPE. That's not what it's about. I read this book in a day! When the author describes what was going on inside her head as opposed to what was revealed on the outside, it was honest and raw. I think this is one of those books that will speak to people differently. What I got out of it won't be what someone else gets out of it. So I'm just gonna say "Read it and let it hit you however it hits you".
If you've had kids, been divorced, been married, lost a parent, or ever tried to live up to someone else's expectations... this book is for you!

Tell us a little about yourself. I'm a wife and mother of three. I was born and raised in Northern California. I enjoy long hot summers and sometimes wish I could hibernate in the winter. I studied Accounting after High School and worked in the Accounting field until I decided to be a stay at home mom when my first two children were 4 and 6. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends as well as meeting new people and hearing how God is working in their lives.

How were you personally impacted by working on this project? Writing this book helped me look back and truly acknowledge God and all of the many miracles and blessings I have received from Him. It gave me a deeper love for God and a desire to know Him better. I was able to look back on my life and see that God was there watching over me, even when I didn't acknowledge Him.
