Last year when I was being interviewed by radio and TV stations about my book, It’s Not About The Pie, the word “intentional” kept coming up. When you want to show hospitality in some way or reach out to someone, you must be purposeful and intentional in doing so - you have to take that step forward.
It is so easy to just float along in life doing the bare minimum and what is easy for us. To grow, we need to take a risk: move out of our comfort zone. I know so many people who are fearless in their faith. They don’t just do the status quo. They go beyond. I want to do that too. I want to be BOLD.
Each chapter in this book has a testimony from someone who has boldly, intentionally, stepped out in faith, along with a scripture passage and a Bible character that ties in with that person’s testimony. Bold people, intentional people, have the faith that moves mountains, and it is a great encouragement to me, and I hope, you too.
My desire is that this book will inspire all of us to take that next step where we know God can help us do anything. Like David faced Goliath as just a boy, we too can face giants and be BOLD.
Are you ever concerned about your role in reaching out to others, hospitality and sharing what you have? I believe hospitality is not a gift but something everyone should do. It does not matter where you live, you can share what you have. There are many ways to reach out to others without having a fancy home or lots of money.
I am so excited about this book. The layout is lovely, in color, with many photos. There is a section with favorite family recipes and home decor ideas. Also included, is a section on our responsibility to help those in need and how to be generous with what we are given. I think that this book will make a great gift for any woman wishing to share with others.
This book is the redemption story of three women: Moma, my sister, Lisa and me. My sister and I were adopted together at an early age and later discovered birth relatives. Our adoptive parents went through difficult years and Dad died when we were teens. It was through his death that we came to know the Lord. During this time, we had no income and life was difficult.
Through years of tragedy God showed us His tender care and compassion. This book deals with loss, poverty, grief, adoption, love and discovery. My hope above all would be that everyone who reads this book will find encouragement and be able to share that hope with others.
