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!

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.

Can I Really Know Jesus?

This is a good little book that covers the spiritual basics. That said, there is theology in here that could be in disagreement with the beliefs of some Christians. Other reviewers have mentioned some of the questions, but one that stood out to me is part of the answer to the question “Do I need to ask for salvation more than once?” Part of the answer states “…you cannot be unsaved.” I know many denominations who don’t ascribe to “once saved, always saved”

If you’re a Baptist, you will LOVE this book. It is a nice introduction to spiritual questions.

I do wish the book had a table of contents or an index. They would make it handy for a reference for those unfamiliar with the basic tenets of Christianity.
