Awake

 

 

 

 

 

 

I know I am a little biased, but I truly believe Joel’s book is breaking ground in the world of publishing.

 

It is filled with links to a video that takes you deeper into the stories. In a couple of years, I believe we will see a whole lot more of this book format. Beyond that, the message is brilliant, the journey mesmerizing – you won’t be able to put it down!

Below is the review I wrote for the jacket. I have also added a couple of videos. The first is the trailer – you will probably love the music for this one. The second is for all those who have heard me tell the story of my brothers crane jump. Enjoy, then go buy the book HERE!

My Review – “I spoke with a warlord, traversed Antarctica’s wilderness, prayed with a slave, covertly filmed a protest in Tiananmen Square, laughed with a girl, and cried with an orphan after an earthquake devastated Haiti. I fell in love, had my heart broken, and encountered an even greater love. Joel masterfully tells the story – his, yours, and mine. His writing stirs the reader to dream. His wild adventures awaken a hunger to have our own. Inspired, humorous, and packed with revelation, Awake is just what the title promises, a full-on invitation to dream, love, and live our own story – a story that can change the world.”

SHEILA GREGOIRE / THE GREAT SEX RESCUE

Intimacy within marriage, the connection between intimacy and mutuality, the nature of trust, the definition of sex, addressing transactional vs relational thinking, dismantling obligation, addressing objectification and broken ideologies developed from Eph 5:22, “Wives submit to your husbands…” Sheila Gregoire practically rethinks sex so husbands and wives can experience intimacy, joy, and deeper connection.

I Don’t Know… But God Is Good

I don’t know but God is good. That phrase has been one of our family and ministry mottoes for years. It’s a faith statement that has served us well.

The first half of that statement is extremely powerful only because we believe the second half with absolute conviction. We have made it our position on everything.

Twenty Seconds

So, what did we learn? Maybe you lost your job, or worse, you lost someone you love. Maybe you don’t see life going back to “normal.” I guess I’m writing this to assure you, maybe “normal” isn’t what you need. Maybe what you need is twenty seconds of insane courage to begin living a better life. I know life was probably good before the shutdown, but what if it could be better?

Outwitted

But love and I had the wit to win: We drew a circle and took him In!  

That is the gospel of Jesus on a cross; that no matter the circles drawn to shut people out, Love draws bigger circles, Love says, “We all belong, we become!”

The Church, Politics, and Trust

It seems the North American church doesn’t understand how trust works. You see, while trust is earned through faithfulness over time, it can be lost the same way.
