I felt empowered by Pastor Caroline book as I had made some changes in my life to serve God, so what I got out of her book is how checking my motives to serve and eliminating any distraction to seek balance in serving. I current came back to Angelus Temple church as I had moved out of the LA area where I felt God speak to me in regards to serving in other communities, but I can say with great conviction that happiest times in my life have been serving in LA with the Dream Center. The leaders are real, passionate about their calling, and I feel empowered by their constant love to empower others in a loving way. I feel privileged to serve on Saturdays every week. Thank you pastor Caroline for keeping your heart pure in serving as I was encouraged by your testimony and pray that you continue strong to reach others through your book to push others to move from their comfort zone into their calling to serve with Gods love simply motivated by pure motives to love on people who are hurting. I recommend this book to anyone who is seeking to make impacting changes in their life as I felt blessed by reading this book!!!
She writes with humor, style, conviction and love. There are anecdotes and quotes to illustrate her very good points, and Scriptures to back them up. She tells us why self-help books are ineffective when we don't start by relying on God, and listening to the command to help others. The stories of life experiences from the author and others touched my heart. I have more ways to pray for, and more ways to help people after reading this book.
Absolutely one of the BEST books I've ever read. This was great timing for me to read this since I'm in the middle of a transition in my life. This was the confirmation I needed. God spoke to me through this book and I believe that He is waiting to do the same for others.
This book is a great catalyst for everybody to get up and do it. Caroline is very inspirational and her words really motivates you to go and make a mark on this world and encourage you to take the risk before you see the result. Caroline explains in an encouraging way how you can overcome your own barriers and make a real difference in the world today. It is very easy to pick up and read a few pages here and there but you probably will be so inspired that you read straight through it. I wholeheartedly recommend that you get this book for yourself and your loved ones.
I found Willing to Walk on Water a motivating book. Caroline Barnett had helpful suggestions for those of us wanting to be used of the Lord in His reaching out to the poor and those shattered by life. I give this book a "thumbs up". Thank you, Caroline, for allowing the Lord to work in and through your life to those so close to His heart. May He continue to bring many His love through you.
Inspiring and spirit filled with concrete examples of how her life was directed by her spiritual beliefs. If you are wondering about your spiritual connection, this is a really good book to read to relate to giving your life a spiritual direction. easy to read and a i would recommend it
