Hi, friends. I was asked by a friend to do a Book Review. I've done a few before; they are easy. Read and give a summary of the content to help folks determine if the book is a good fit for them. This book was different. It was so good, I couldn't just 'read it.' Abby Kelly, the author, helps readers journey into the amazing depths (heights) of growing in the fullness of Jesus Christ. I so thoroughly enjoyed it, I wanted to share the review with all of you. I'd love to hear your thoughts on the book. I used it more as a devotional than a Bible Study--and plan to do it again!
Whether your salvation took place today or decades ago, this book is a Holy-Spirit crafted tool that will deepen your maturity. Abby Kelly clearly partnered with the Spirit in writing this book. Expanding the definition of maturity to incredible depths, the study clears a path for believers to walk upon.
Exploring maturity as a key to unity, Abby builds a beautiful case for pressing into the design of God. Moving on to the topic of humility and then moving on to masterfully balance grace and law, the guide helps believers march forward to freedom. This study guide provides disciples with an awesome journey; I will be taking the journey again.
Kelly carefully closes the study by leading the reader to explore the depths of a love-powered, spirit-filled walk that produces for eternity. Beyond Belief is the study every Christian needs to live the life Jesus intends for us to live!

The world is a chaotic place these days. I love the reminder that a small light is very easy to see in a dark room. We are 'little lights,' but God will use us to draw others to Himself as long as we walk faithfully toward Him. Here are a few pieces I've written over the last month on living our faith in the chaos of our culture.

Stopping by to say hi to my friends who are not on the other medias I play with! Click over to the Heartsong page for links to pieces I have been writing about learning from the animals. Blessings!
Growing into the design God intends for us takes a lifetime. Along the way, God uses many tools to shape us. Animals are a primary tool He has used in the lives of our entire family. Believing in the power of pets to touch lives, we are working to develop an Animal Therapy Ministry that visits residential and educational facilities. We also will be breeding Holland Lop bunnies and English Bulldogs for pet homes.
