This review is from: Rhinestone Jesus: Saying Yes to God When Sparkly, Safe Faith Is No Longer Enough (Paperback)
This is one of those books that you have to put down and walk away from because the TRUTH in it is so hard and overwhelming, but at the same time you just want to keep going. I've read Kristen's blog for years. This book tells the story of her family establishing Mercy House in Kenya... a home for pregnant, homeless teens. It's heartbreaking, not just for what the girls in Kenya go through, but for our blindness as Christians to the need in the world... and just down our streets. She says it's time for us to "wake up from the American dream"... amen Kristen! Thank you for a timely word ... you have changed how I am thinking about my purpose in life and I'm praying that God will show me and my family how He wants us to really live for Him. Read this book!!
