Faith-filled choices are hard to make,
This review is from: Living 'So That': Making Faith-Filled Choices in the Midst of a Messy Life (InScribed Collection) (Kindle Edition)
A few weeks ago, I was asked to review a series of Christian Life/Personal Growth books from inScribedfollow and let me tell you, I couldn’t wait to get my hands (and heart) on them! One of the book was written by Wendy Blightfollow called Living So That: Making Faith-Filled Choices in the Midst of a Messy Life.
This book is about living our lives according to the powerful “so that” verses of the Bible; for example, Matthew 5:16Open in Logos Bible Software (if available) “In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven..” Instead of making the easy choices, Wendy teaches us:
Faith-filled choices are harder to make. They occur when we react, not out of our emotions but out of a spirit-led heart and mind. And faith-filled choices have good consequences that bless not only us but everyone with whom we come in contact.
What I really enjoyed about this particular book was the sections after the chapter that included questions which were great but also the “going deeper” sections. These were both beautiful and difficult since there were no easy answers. These, at least for me, required some serious soul searching. A few times I had to put the book and my journal down and come back to it later. The book also offers real world examples of how we can live the verses we study, not just read and think “yeah, I’ll work on that” and file it away.
I enjoyed the self-study of this book, but I would like to go further with a small ladies’ group. I know other women have different life experiences and are in different stages of their lives; I bet we can provide each other a lot of perspective.

I just signed up for a bible study that uses this book on the Proverbs 31 Ministries website. That's why I'm purchasing the book.
