Adventures in Saying Yes | Book Review

Written by Carl Medearis about his family's real life adventures in saying "yes" to Jesus, I found this an interesting, thought provoking read from the beginning.  The writing style is engaging and fun to read.  Although mostly told by Carl, there are also parts written by his wife, Chris, and their three adult children.

Not just about their unique life, this book encourages you to exchange fear for faith.  I know I find it easier to be fearful rather than faithful.  It's something that the Lord has been working on in me for quite some time.  The main point is to turn the control over to God and trust Him.

I found this book to be very encouraging, and it was extremely interesting to read about the Medearis' life in Beriut and their ministry in the Middle East to the Muslims.  Definitely on my recommended reading list!

  1. Ooh, sounds like a good book! I, too, have that inner battle between fear and faith. I am glad we serve a patient God.
