I would recommend this book to anyone!! I laughed and cried, but mostly I feel that I understand God better and am challenged to improve my relationship with Him and take it to a deeper level.
The story touches your heart in a most profound way. I was somewhat skeptical toward God but longed to believe he was love. This book changed my view. The reading is also excellent.
it may be repetitive at times, and everything is amped up to extreme emotion the whole way through. but who can help but be motivated by this woman's extraordinary example? She emphasizes that she is not extraordinary, but just obedient. if she can be this obedient, I can do better in my own life. this is a must read. in hindsight, I would read it rather than audio book. the narrator does a fine job, but I would rather hear Katie's voice in my head, with more facets, than the super heightened emotional tone of the audio book.. but either way, I am recommending it to everyone. what a motivational life.
I enjoyed and appreciated the truly amazing details about Katie's journey. They are very necessary reminders to our comfortable selves of the needs in the world and what God calls us to -- sacrifice and selflessness knowing and trusting that He will provide our every need. Unfortunately, I had to listen at 3x speed because the narrator sounded too cutesy for the gravity of this story.
I loved this book! And the narrator was really good! It is for sure a "give it forward"-book, encouraging me to see the one, to never stop doing good, to always love my neighbor and always cling to my Father and let Him love me through my life here on earth.
