Ask God:My 30-Day Experiment With Prayer and Its Potential to Answer Yours

https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/51Dj1alSs3L.jpg

Kyle Morey takes a 30-day journey with God and brings us along! In his first book, Ask God: My 30-day Experiment with Prayer and Its Potential to Answer Yours, Kyle takes real-life stories and applies scriptural truth to weave a transparent, humble and honest story. He takes personal experiences and shares his own vulnerability all while being a diligent steward of the doctrinal truths he shares.

Every day, after doing his “spiritual warmups (music, prayer and scripture study)”, Kyle asked God what message He had for the readers. He then faithfully wrote what he felt the Lord had for him to share each day.

The stories Morey shares are drawn from his own life experiences as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, CEO, husband, and father of five. His insights resonated with me on many levels. We all face many challenges, and Kyle offers much life-changing insight into overcoming obstacles by turning to the Ultimate Source of Wisdom for guidance—always pointing us, the “dear readers”, to that Source.

Morey uses many rhetorical styles, but one of the most effective is his use of questions. He writes:

Why immersion in water? Can anyone baptize? What is the symbolism behind this ancient practice? Is your baptism legitimate? Is mine? What about my friends, ancestors and others who didn’t know about baptism—or Christ, for that matter? Are they doomed to know a lesser fate? These are all great questions, perhaps the most important questions you will ever ask—if you truly believe that baptism is vital to yours and the world’s redemption.

Kyle Morey does an excellent job of giving us a glimpse into his life of devoted service to his fellow beings, and he doesn’t hide the fact that he isn’t perfect. I love the courage it took to write this book! Thank you, Kyle!

Raising the Dead: A Doctor Encounters the Miraculous

https://ts1.mm.bing.net/th?q=raising%20the%20dead%20a%20doctor%20encounters%20the%20miraculous%20446557218

I’m an RN and a paramedic by training so when I heard the story of a man who was ‘coded’ for 40 minutes, was pronounced dead, who was left for dead for a short time… and then prayed over and shocked again…only to regain a heartbeat and pulses…AND has NO neurological deficits…well, I had to know more! This just doesn’t happen. I’m a Christian and I believe in miracles, although I’ve never seen one as dramatic as the one recounted in this book.

This is the story of Dr. Crandall’s conversion from a lukewarm Christian to someone who has the divine gift of healing IN ADDITION to being a medical doctor. It is a profound story. He recounts the fiery trial of watching one of his twin sons battle leukemia, and ultimately succumb, through the lens of someone who is searching for God and His hand in those trials.

Gratitude: A Prayer and Praise Coloring Journal

Image result for Gratitude a prayer and praise coloring journal

This is just a delightful little book! Gratitude is (or should be) such an important part of our walk with Christ. I love that it focuses on the positive and doesn’t wander off into any heavy theology. This book would be a nice gift for any Christian woman who likes to be contemplative while coloring! I like to color in it while I pray or listen to a devotional talk. This book is sprinkled with encouraging thoughts and scriptures and has space for writing down your thoughts as you focus on the many things you can be grateful for in your life. I highly recommend it!

The publisher provided me with a complementary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
