powerful Truth

This book touched the depths of my soul and forever changed my view of God. It's raw truth put into words what I have felt in my heart and had not the words to describe. A must read.

Overall a great read

Ann is a deeply passionate, insightful & gifted writer. I gained a new perspective from her book & after my own personal 22 years of Christianity- that’s a welcomed plus. I will never think of God asking, “Where are you?” in the Garden of Eden in the same way that I have been reading it for years, now it’s personal to me! I will also use her term “soul safe” for the rest of my life. She can be a bit repetitive at times but sometimes that’s necessary for us to take things in. I’m not a huge fan of her audio reading of the book. I found the all the emotion and breathiness of her voice distracting at times but that’s me, likely others will feel the complete opposite. Irregardless, the message is VERY good and I was on the edge of my seat with a couple of her personal stories. She does a really balanced job of intertwining scripture, devotion and her story together. She’s a dynamic woman of God & I’m happy that I was introduced to this book and the accompanying Bible study. I recommend it and I would read it again.

Never before has Ann been so vulnerable

Beautifully vulnerable story of Ann’s journey through marriage, adoption and a life threatening condition…with application after application for the reader. Ann does a magnificent job of driving the reader deeper into attachment relationship, into our God-given, impossible dreams and into God’s presence with us in suffering. She weaves into every one of our smaller stories what God is accomplishing in the larger story…how He seeks to use everything in this life to woo us to Himself. She brings her written words alive with felt emotion. I will listen to this again and again. Highly recommend for anyone seeking a deeper relationship with the Father of all, the Lover of our souls, our eternal King.

Timely

God used Ann to deliver some truths in my life I was not aware of. He is truly The WayMaker. I’m going to listen to this book over and over as I know God isn’t finished guiding Ann to open my eyes and heart.

I love this book!

Sometimes a book will move me on a more human personnel level more and this was one of those! at times I was crying ,at times I had to just shut it off and just soak in the words that the author herself narrates and reads which makes it all the more passionate and intimate! Really worth investing in!

Excellent book.

Ann Voskamp's writing style is elegant, and her devotion to God is so very inspiring. The WayMaker is not only written well, but the heart wrenching message is vitally important--especially for those who have experienced major trauma. I was moved by the vulnerability with which she unpacked an exceedingly painful season in her journey, My love for God grew as I listened intently to every word she read.

Stunning

Ann Voskamp can envelop you in her words and sentences like no other author I’ve ever read. Her books are works of art and they are God breathed in every way. She bravely shares her story and invites the reader into her home, her marriage, her heart, her faith. A beautiful life giving book. I thought ‘One thousand Gifts’ had changed my life, but this book is just as glorious.

Sweet waves of mercy through waymaker

To know God intimately and experience his love and reecue, Ann shows us what questions to ask in the midst of disappointment, dead ends and what seem like dangerous hopes.
I am profoundly and forever changed by my experience of Gods love though the pages of this book
