I thought I knew exactly what this book would be about. Having grown up a good girl in a denominational church my entire life long only to suffer tragic loss and betrayal as an adult (hence making my life one many would deem "ruined forever"), I've learned a gut-wrenching lesson or two about the difference between religion and relationship.

I've just finished Everything, though, and I'm stunned. I'm not sure I can find a way to articulate just what this book did to me, but suffice it to say that Mary DeMuth's inspired words left me with more hope than I've had in a long, long time, as well as a resolve to let go of the chains holding me to my past once and for all. I thought Jesus was my Everything already--I really did--but oh, how this book has challenged me in ways I never imagined.

I've read several of this author's books, and she never, ever disappoints. You won't find a better writer in the world than Mary DeMuth, and her amazing craft combined with a power behind her words that can only come from God Almighty Himself make the message of this book a force to be reckoned with. Read it and get ready for a life transformed. Amen.

When I seen that, "Everything", was up for review, I jumped in for the tour. When you think of a book penned by Mary DeMuth, you know it's going to be from the heart. This book is pure and written in the beauty of truth. Most of all, you know your going to walk away blessed. While reading this gem you really do feel as though your having coffee with Mary. It has that heart to heart feeling. When you walk away, you know that your cup in longer empty, but completely full.

You gotta love when a woman of God opens up and shares of her own life with others so that we might learn a bit more about our walk with our Savior. In reading, "Everything", my heart was stirred. I was moved by everything this book holds. I never bend pages in my books. I rarely write in them. I do have a few where I have highlighted parts that have blessed me. In this book, the pages are bent and the words are highlighted. I could stop right there and that would be enough to tell you how wondrous this book is. But there is so much more to share!

I'm just going to share with you a few of my favorites throughout the book.

"We are more winsome when we listen. When we hold back our temper, when we choose not to stir up strife for the sake of proving our "correctness". Our job is not to convince others of their wrongness and our rightness. It's not to change people's hearts. (We did not create anyone's heart as far as I know. Only God can change a heart.) Our job is to represent Jesus, how He talked, how He acted, how He loved, how He wooed."

"We are not saved to a checklist of acceptable behaviors. We are saved by an irresistible Savior, one who deserves our allegiance, our lives, and our hearts. He is the wooing God, not a manipulative, coercive deity.

I've been grappling with writing this review for a few days now. I've been fortunate to be part of Mary's "Launch Team" for the book and so received an advance copy of the PDF. I've been blessed by participating in a closed group on FB with the other 100 or so members of that team.

I so wanted to be praising this book from the rooftops. All the other reviews (at present) are overwhelmingly positive which is fantastic. I worry that I've missed something significant.

But I must write what's in my heart.

This book has so much going for it. Let me list some of them:

1. Mary is a passionate lover of Jesus and pours herself into everything she writes. This is no different. We see Mary so wanting to share her journey, warts and all.
2. It's cleverly structured into 3 parts: What we Think, Who we are, and How we Live.
3. The writing is excellent using lots of great Scriptures as well as other appropriate references from people such as Oswald Chambers, who lived a life of giving "everything" to Jesus. As a result it is easy to read, not getting bogged down in over-complicated theology.
4. There are lots of super soundbites. I love soundbites, little takeaways that you can store to memory and draw out when chatting with others.
5. Mary's messages challenge you to stop, think and lean into Jesus some more. Which at the end of the day is a great outcome.

Mary's lived a rich life of experience. Some really tough times that have chiselled her character and strength in Jesus. What I've grappled with is I felt as the book progressed we had less of this experience from the perspective of taking me inside her story.

I'm a huge fan of Ann Voskamp's "1000 Gifts", which Mary also refers to.

It's easy to say "I will give God everything I have" ... It's much harder to live that life. With sensitivity, short personal stories, and a slice of humor, Mary DeMuth's book, Everything, took me on a journey to discover what the term "everything" entails. I especially liked the short chapters that gave me time to process her points before moving on to the next topic. It's a worthy read... several times over.
