Out of the Dust: Story of an Unlikely Missionary
Out of the Dust: Story of an Unlikely Missionary
by Avis Goodhart
Edition: Paperback
Price: $11.58
28 used & new from $11.40

5.0 out of 5 stars More Than a Memoir, November 21, 2014
OUT OF THE DUST brings a delightful blend of yesterday’s hardships with today’s triumph.

The reader is transformed by the brilliant recount of Avis’s struggles during her childhood, her desire and dream that rumbled inside, and God’s grace to make them come true. Avis brought thousands out of the dust, but her story brings us out of complacency.

More than a memoir or a mission journey, in Out of the Dust, we see a miracle in the making, a ministry in the move, and a committed servant in action. As one is transported to each scene that reads like a novel, the urge is to say, “Lord, use me too in that same impacting way.”

The people in Peru will never be the same. Neither will the reader of Out of the Dust as it’s a delicious story of adversity in God’s hands which He molded to change lives. Its pages shine with illustrations of endurance, sacrifice, perseverance and ultimate victory.--Janet Perez Eckles

5.0 out of 5 stars Te abraza con deliciosos detalles de la vida, June 18, 2013
Este libro debe llevar una advertencia: Ninguna tarea se podrá realizar una vez que se impieza a leerlo. A Paso de Elefante te amarra emocionalmente con lazos de deliciosos detalles, intriga, de esperanza, de tristeza y felicidad. El mejor regalo que el lector recibe es el poder caminar junto a la autora por los caminos de dolor, pena y decepción. Pero también, salir junto con ella al triunfo, a una vida rodeada del amor de Jesus. El lector llevará en el corazón profunda inspiración para saber que no tenemos que caminar a paso de ratón timido, pero a paso de elefante, brillando con fuerza espiritual, con ánimo, con esperanza y determinación para triunfar y enfrentar los retos de la vida con valor y fé.--Janet Perez Eckles, motivadora internacional y autora de Simplemente Salsa.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining yet Powerful, October 29, 2012
How can one be entertained and taught at the same time? Only by skillful writing, adorable characters, and a plot that sings with delight. The Seventh Dimension captures each beautifully and is engaging. Within the innocence of sweet dialogue between characters comes a profound message to leave you pondering and tapping into your own insecurities and fears. In The Seventh Dimension, Lorilyn Roberts takes us to a deeper level. The level where your heart is stirred by tenderness in the midst of life's rough episodes, courage when facing attacks, and triumph when trusting in He who dwells within. I was gripped by the simplicity of the story line and nudged to test my level of forgiveness and the freedom that comes when one believes and seeks the door that opens to new beginnings. The writing in The Seventh Dimension is delightful and the message, powerful.--Janet Perez Eckles, best-selling author of Simply salsa: Dancing Without Fear at God's Fiesta.

5.0 out of 5 stars Learning From Elijah, September 4, 2012
How can one man, one life and one journey bring such rich insight for us? What message could his life have for us now in the 21st century?

Bob Saffrin answers these questions in the powerfully-written story of Elijah. His unique journey of dedication and commitment as a man of God, shouts a relevant message for us.

Moments of doubt, turned to boldness. Episodes of hardship turned to trust. And days of insecurities turned to God's power revealed. All gives the pattern to follow for a triumphant life.

When most rely on other sources for answers, healing and triumph, "Elijah, on the other hand, was walking close to God; when God said go, he went, and when God said stay, he stayed. Because he walked close to God, he saw things from God's perspective."

This is only one example in Elijah's life where the reader can see God's power when obedience becomes our passion. I was drawn to find out more about how God is so actively involved in the details of our daily conflicts, fears and hardships. I found it refreshing to learn more profoundly about the steps to victory. And the path to triumph when one chooses to follow God's path, to seek His ways and to delight in fulfilling His plans. A message for all, and urgent call for many today.--Janet Perez Eckles, author of Simply Salsa, Dancing Without Fear at God's Fiesta.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Just Another Book on Marketing and Promoting, July 7, 2012
I swallowed hard. Another book about promotion and marketing. Another guilt trip about what I should be doing but lack the time to do it. Shamefully I wanted to avoid this familiar path.

But my attitude changed right from the prologue which opens Shameless Self Promotion and Networking for Christian Creatives. I was hooked by the friend-to-friend writing style. And I was captured by the authors' impressive credentials.

I snuggled in my seat, hoping to relax and enjoy each point. But relaxing was the last thing my mind wanted to do. I got busy taking notes, re-reading the detailed instructions, savoring the illustrations, analyzing the warnings and smiling at the real-life examples--too close to home.

If there is a trustworthy, comprehensive and detailed map to follow to a successful promotion journey, Shameless Self Promotion is it.

At every stage of the journey, the reader will know what to avoid, what to pursue, how to react, how to prepare and how to avoid failure.

Learning from others' mistakes is a gift Shameless Self-Promotion gives its readers.

I had two "duh" moments. One is regarding my website. I struggled to identify the real purpose and the specific goal. But after reading the examples and explanations in Shameless Self Promotion, a light went on. As a result, I'm on task to change this feature on my website. It could mean a drastic boost to my success as an international speaker and author.

Another "duh" moment was this:

"Just because you've heard yourself give the same answer a dozen times doesn't mean the local audience has. The number two rule in theatre, right after, The Show Must Go On, is: The audience on the last night of the play paid just as much as the audience on opening night, and they deserve the same, enthusiastic performance. It is your obligation to deliver it."

Such basic insight, but a powerful reminder for me. Every interview should be packed with the same passion as if the first time I told my story.

What makes Shameless Self Promotion uniquely different? One of the qualities is the prevalent spread of intricate details for every step--from creating business cards to handling surprises during media interviews.

Shameless Self Promotion is a self-empowerment tool for anyone preparing to build a platform, increase exposure and invite sure success.
