I have this habit of dog-earing pages of books when something strikes me and I want to go back over pages. Well...after digging into #IWantItAll, almost EVERY page has been dog-eared! Gwen provides solid biblical knowledge and real life experience in a way that brings God's Truths to life, right here, right now.

If you are wanting to connect with all God has for you, then you want to pick up Gwen's book! I bet your pages will be dog-eared too!

Thank you David C. Cook for the ARC for an honest review :).

I am absolutely loving this book! It is guiding me into a deeper understanding of God's heart toward me and His plan for my life. Gwen's writing style is so real and makes me feel like I'm sitting on the couch with her sharing a cup of coffee and having a great conversation as I read. This book has challenged me, sometimes made me laugh and other times cry, but most of all it has made me want to be more like Jesus! The discussion questions really have caused me to think and dig deeper. I've used several of Gwen's other books in small group Bible studies and we've never been disappointed. I can't wait to use this one as well.

This book has been such an adventure for me. I've always had a heart and desire for God but when Gwen speaks of her real life experiences with Him it drives that passion deeper. This book is filled with pages and pages of passion of a life poured out for Christ and truly burns in your own heart. Every pages shows you Jesus in everyday life, experiences, trials, victories, failures and triumphs. God desires for us to have Him in every part of our lives....even in the messy and mundane. You will not go wrong purchasing this book! Warning to you YOU WILL BE CHANGED!!!

When I first saw the cover of this book, the title jumped out at me, like that sign was written to get MY attention.

I'm certainly guilty of feeling like I always want a little more, and so I thought this book might speak to me about learning to be more content, more satisfied with the gifts God's given me. Instead, it pushed me into deep conviction.

I didn't realize Gwen Smith is a singer/songwriter, as well as an author, yet I was soon mesmerized by her poetic cadence. She writes:

Lord, I want it all today
Every blessing you ordain
Every trial, every strain
Break and build me for your gain.

I was really drawn in by her lyrical voice. The book begins with a quote from one of my all-time favorite authors, Elisabeth Elliot, who wrote in Through Gates of Splendor: "I have one desire now -- to live a life of reckless abandon for the Lord, putting all my energy and strength into it." Every woman reading this knows our energy is limited, no matter how old we are. We can't possibly say yes to everything asked of us and get it all done, so it's a crucial decision: where are we supposed to put our energy and strength to live this life of reckless abandon?

Reading this book will definitely give you ideas of your uniquely personal calling. It's divided into three main parts: All the Faith, All the Power, and All the Impact. As you increase your faith, you'll be able to tap into the power available to you through the Holy Spirit, and live with greater impact.

Each chapter begins with a personal story from the author's life, so in many ways, this reads like a memoir, which is my favorite type of non-fiction book. I love it when a writer is brave enough to allow thousands of strangers to peek into her heart.

She uses Biblical truth and personal stories to convey a powerful message. Gwen is very relatable in her stories because she is very down to earth and doesn't give you the "social media" version of herself that shows only the good things she wants people to know of her. It is much easier to relate to someone that admits her imperfections and that she is a girl that thrives on God's grace.

I have had the opportunity to meet Gwen on several occasions, most notably while planning a women's conference (highly recommend) and this is great insight from a genuine person, and her best work yet.

There are excellent questions at the end of each chapter that are thought provoking and make you want to take action. There is also a study guide in the back for additional study with your girlfriends or on your own.

One thing I loved about I Want It All is that it ignited a passion within me to continue my journey with God and become more like Jesus. It was incredible how a simple book could create this drive in me to be a better person. I’ll be honest; I’ve stayed away from Christian literature in the past because I always felt like the author portrayed themselves as a “perfect Christian,” which we all know doesn’t exist (except Jesus of course!). What kept me reading this book, was that Gwen Smith was 100% open, honest, and raw with her readers. She proved to me that even if you can’t be a “perfect Christian” you can continue to strive for that.

About the Book:
God created you for exceptional impact. Exceptional power. And exceptional blessings.

Gwen Smith knows how easy it is to dismiss God’s plans with the thoughts, I can’t make a big difference for God because I’m just an ordinary woman with an ordinary life. Yet God created us to join Him in doing amazing work in the world. He created us to live with abundant joy, courage, and influence. But not the joy, courage, and influence of the world. He offers His grace for each failure, His love that shatters hate, His peace that soothes the turmoil, His comfort, guidance, wisdom, rest, power, and significance. Every blessing He has for us is ours for the taking.

I Want It All will ignite a fire in your heart to experience more faith, more power, and more impact. More of Jesus. All of Jesus. Everything that God has for you.

My Review:
God will never stop at half way or mediocrity. NEVER! He wants all of you and He will not relent until He has all of you. No matter how long it takes. No matter how long you resist. He has placed something in you that will draw you to Him and that feeling will not stop or change until you run to Him.

I Want It All is about just that. Deeper faith, deeper trust and a lot bigger impact than you can imagine. God loves to make His presence known whether it is in good times or in bad. He will do whatever it takes to bring you closer. We were created for His glory and to win others for His kingdom. And little by little He takes you out and pours Himself in. It is a scary feeling but after awhile you long for Him in ways you never dreamed of before. Then He takes that and He extends it further and further to reach others for Him.

The author has done an exceptional job of writing words that will shoot straight to the heart of God's mission for our lives!

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author.
