BuguruAustraliaAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great Challenge!July 18, 2016BuguruAustraliaAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5John has a great attitude and plenty of experience to give his advice credence. I hope plenty of people read this book and get excited about serving. It has helped refresh me as I return next week to serving hundreds of people in our village Bible School. Wish I had more lives to live to make a difference, but will be looking for and praying for others to feel this same burden.
Thanks to NetGalley and B&H books for a free copy to review.
Alysa SawyerAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Who You AreApril 21, 2015Alysa SawyerAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book by John Croyle is a story of second chances and subtitled: Defying the Circumstances that Define Us. It is the story of how Big Oak Ranch in Alabama was founded; its purpose, vision, and continuous mission. Croyle shares hard lessons learned over his lifetime. He shares difficult to hear and shocking stories of the children who come to the ranch. Every child who comes to the ranch has been abused, traumatized, neglected, abandoned, etc. They all need a chance to have security, love, care, support. Over the past 40 years, Big Oak Ranch has impacted the lives of 2,000+ children.
As the reader, I felt like I was a part of a personal conversation with the author. Croyle weaves scripture and Biblical truths throughout this book to encourage the reader and to explain the ranch mission, the choices he has made over the years, and how he has encouraged the children in his care. He also encourages daily Bible reading, prayer, and Holy Spirit guidance as important life elements that can help anyone face the circumstances in their lives. He also clearly defines character traits that the ranch hopes to instill in the children as they mature and heal from their past wounds (physical, emotional, and spiritual) I would recommend this book to teenagers and adults who have faced difficult circumstances or for those who want to be more aware of what some children face in life.
