The Gospel costs nothing. You can't earn it or buy it. It can only be received as a free gift compliments of God's grace. It doesn't cost anything, but it demands everything. It demands that we go "all in," a term that simply means placing all that you have into God's hands. Pushing it all in. And that's where we get stuck - spiritual no man's land. We're afraid that if we go all in that we might miss out on what this life has to offer. It's not true. The only thing you'll miss out on is everything God has to offer. And the good news is this: if you don't hold out on God, God won't hold out on you.

Drawing from 40 days of true stories, Mark Batterson applies the principles of his New York Times best-selling book The Circle Maker to teach us a new way to pray. As thousands of listeners quickly became many tens of thousands, true stories of miraculous and inspiring answers to prayer began to pour in, and as those stories were shared, others were bolstered in their faith to pray with even more boldness.

I truly loved reading this book and struggled to only give the author a 4/5 for overall marks. I hope he's not offended by it because I loved the book. I think he's a brilliant writer and I'm going to listen to more of his books. I just found myself a little frustrated with his viewpoint at times. I hope I word this well. In the book, Donald repeatedly accuses people in the church of being judgemental. Although I understand why he felt that, I kept wanting to say, "Don't you realize you're judging people in the church?". I can see because of his childhood hurts that he often went into situations expecting to be rejected and then felt that. Like when he went to the camp unshowered and when that girl tried to welcome him he reacted like a prickly pear. Growing up in my church there were two men, one who was off and on homeless. They smelled horrible, but they kept coming back because of the love and assistance our church gave them. I know that the church can be judgemental thought, because it's full of people, and people aren't perfect. Most of the people that I know in the church come with the same kind of baggage that Donald has, myself included. We are all broken and we all are just trying our best to live right before God. Some living too strict, some living too loose. Neither is God's best in my opinion. I do want to thank Donald for being honest and authentic. It was so refreshing and thought provking! #Audible1

God is always speaking... even when He doesn't use words. We live in a post-verbal society that communicates through images - television, smartphones, the Internet - and our Creator longs to communicate with us visually if we'll live with our eyes wide open. With absorbing insight, Seeing the Voice of God demystifies nighttime dreams and daytime visions, revealing the science behind the supernatural and giving you a biblical foundation for making sense of what you see.

I learned soooooo much from this book. I've had it for a few years and kept using the dream dictionary, but never had the time to read it. Since I drive so much I listened to it on Audible and it was amazing. It makes such sense out of some crazy dreams that I thought were scary, but they're not. Laura Harris Smith is so logical and practical. This book demystifies dreams and hearing God speak. A must read if you want to hear God, because He is speaking :) #Audible1
