The Faith Dare Book Review


I am lucky enough to be able to review books for Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group. I have to say that due to my recent hospitalization this review is late, but this book is amazing.

Here's a description:

Dare to live out your faith like never before! In The Faith Dare, Debbie Alsdorf encourages women to take her 30-day challenge to cultivate a passionate relationship with God. If you take her on, each day you'll be given a "daily dare" to help you develop a godly habit. The book includes a study guide, daily readings, affirmations, and challenges. Discover what a difference 30 days can make!

Subtitled 30 Days To Live Your Life To The Fullest, this book help those of us who are believers do just that. Debbie Alsdorf had me underlining passages at 3 pages in. I just saw so much of myself in this book and found so many ways to apply it to my life.

The book is designed to be read in 30 days, but I kept going back & going over things that spoke to me that I ended up reading for longer than 30 days. I still refer back to it all the time.

The book starts out by outlining what you should plan to accomplish & then gives you the tools to make real changes.

Each individual day starts out with a prayer/praise for the day, followed by something called Today's Truth. Next is Today's Dare and then room and prompts for journaling about what you've learned and ends with a prayer.

Each day's reading is only a few pages long making easy to fit into a busy schedule. I found this book really moving & it really helped me grow & feel closer to God & closer to who I would like to be as a woman.

This book is available now at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.

Pick it up, you really won't be sorry.

This book sounds like something I would benifit from since life here lately has been turned upside down. I am doing rather well considering but I think everyone could use a time closer to God.
