With all the materialism in this world, sometimes it takes a divine act of God to get us past the wealth and richness that we can see everywhere, to get to the heart of God and do serve where He wants us, even if that road means less wealth and glamour than you want.
Mr. Frenn introduces to the big questions of life as well: Why? What? How? What's in it for me?
If you are looking for direction and meaning in your life, and where God wants you to serve, then BREAKING THE BARRIERS would be a good book to pick up.
This book is very easy to follow--I had a hard time putting it down once I got started. The testimonies are great. It's not like someone giving advice on things that he's never experienced himself. I've had the privilege of hearing this minister preach a few times at my church and I can tell you that he's real and he speaks from the heart.
You must be willing to put into practice the steps that are laid out in the book. You can't finish it and then sit back and expect a complete turnaround overnight. It takes hard work on your part--I know, because I'm living it right now. I've had more than a few barriers that have been holding me back in life, but I had at least two significant barriers to overcome. After a few months of putting into practice what I have learned, I can honestly testify that the Lord answered my prayers and helped me with major breakthroughs! I'm experiencing some freedom that I never thought possible and I'm never going back to the way I was because I want complete freedom. I still have work to do, but I'm thrilled at my progress so far and I'm closer to God more than ever. I'm also starting to experience other amazing changes in my life and people around me keep asking me what's going on because they are noticing something different about me. I love it.
If you're feeling lost like I was, and you know you need to make changes but are not sure how to get started, you need to give this book a chance. You won't be sorry.
There are several things that I think set this book apart from others. The author did not come from a perfect family, so he has experiences that can be helpful for others, especially young people. It is written in a comfortable, relaxed style. The author opens up and shares stories of his life, decisions he had to make, and situations that required wisdom in behavior. Imagine being approached by a rough looking character in the middle of the night asking for money and a ride. Then think about helping him and learning an important spiritual lesson from the stranger. Another story of unattended baggage at the airport demonstrates behavior choices.
Although anyone can learn from this book, I would highy recommend it for teens and young adults.
The book can be read cover to cover or a chapter at a time which makes it ideal for group studies.
The author quotes his friend, "Pride is like bad breath; everyone knows you have it except you."
Jason is a great storyteller. Having seen him speak, I was so looking forward to hearing his stories- and he did not disappoint. His narratives generated goose bumps on more than one occasion, accounting events in his own life as well as others who have implemented his counsel.
This book is easy to read and thought provoking, offering practical solutions to "breaking the barriers" and "reaching your greatest potential."
