Laura5 Stars Out Of 5Love it!September 1, 2017LauraQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Another great title by Stacey Thacker! She writes like we're sitting down for coffee and sharing honest stories about life. And then we go deep into God's Word, walking through the book of Hebrews. This is a great Bible study for an individual or for a group.
I received an advance reader's copy in exchange for my honest review. (But I already knew I wanted to read it before receiving a copy!)
Trisha Goddard5 Stars Out Of 5I will NEVER look at the book of the Hebrews the same again!August 21, 2017Trisha GoddardQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5In "Is Jesus Worth It?", Stacey shares as one girlfriend to another how knowing Who Jesus is changes everything. He is worth seeking, worth trusting, worth following, worth drawing near, worth listening too, worth knowing intimately, worth holding fast, worth our worship, worth the sacrifice. Jesus is worth it all.
Stacey quotes, "With no one to turn to but Jesus, I found Him profoundly faithful and deeply tender. Jesus is truly all you need." I related to the personal story that she shared, and I could tell you personally stories when I have found myself alone, with absolutely no one to turn to but Jesus, yet in those moments, that is where I have found my faith deepen. My love for Him. My prayer life increase. Him and Him alone. In the valley, but not alone. He is enough.
While reading "Is Jesus Worth It?", I laughed. I cried. I desired to sit down at the feet of Jesus and soak in more of His Word - to know Him better and make Him known. I believe that some of the most encouraging words from my sweet girlfriend, Stacey, were, "I am not giving up on this race of faith. I'm going to run even if I'm bruised because I know without a shadow of doubt that Jesus is worth it. And if I happen to run by and see you have fallen to the ground, I will be the one who shakes you by the shoulders and says, Come on, get up...we have to finish this. And then we will look forward to the finish line, together." I literally had to read that section twice, because tears had filled my eyes. This is what a girlfriend does. This is what a member of the body of Christ does. Walks alongside another. Encourages another to press on. Finishes together. There is no one trying to out do another, no one left behind. Together, we are looking forward to the prize - Christ. He is worth it!
I will never look at the book of Hebrews the same again. Stacey's style of writing is one of my absolute favorites. She intertwines personal stories with the truths from the book of Hebrews. I am not one to read a book twice, but after 9 pages of notes reading through it a first time, I am already re-reading it a second time in order to soak in (and be reminded again) of the truth that "Yes, Jesus is worth it." And it is definitely on my "have-to-read-yearly" list. I highly recommend this book for any girlfriend ready to dig into the book of Hebrews and answer the question for themselves, "Is Jesus Worth It?"
I received a complimentary review copy by the publisher and author as a part of the launch team. This review is my honest opinion.
smiliejen5 Stars Out Of 5Is Jesus Worth It?: Igniting Your Faith When You Feel Like QuittingAugust 20, 2017smiliejenQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Stacey digs into the book of Hebrews while weaving in her own personal real life stories into it to make it more relatable to our lives today. She writes in such a way that it makes you feel as though you are sitting across from her at the table having an intimate conversation about God and how we should strive to be Christ like in all things. So much of Stacey's story parallels with mine and it was wonderful seeing how God's truth and Word helped her overcome her own struggles. It gives me hope that I, too, can overcome things like being a people pleaser and a "busy keeper." The "Cease to Do" chapter is one I will refer back to over and over again for sure. I honestly don't know how to fully rest, but know that God designed the Sabbath so that we would all come to know and have rest, so I am really work hard at trying to find a way to make this a part of my life, but boy is it hard! Stacey says "All our keeping and doing and pretending is not needed to achieve a level where we can give ourselves permission to rest." She also said "From the beginning of the world God's plan for us was that we would first rest." In today's busy society, how many of us can honestly say that we truly rest and center ourselves deeply in the Sabbath God intended for each of us? It is by our faith, rest, intimate relationship with God, His Word and in our desire to help, pray for, encourage and love those around us in our community that we will come to a place of peace and following Jesus in all things. I can't wait for the next book in this series and a chance to gather my girlfriends to discuss these deep truths.
I was given an advanced reader digital copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
