Reflecting Him: Living For Jesus And Loving It, Book review



Book description:

Reflecting Him: Living for Jesus and Loving It. Do you see Jesus in your daily life, or save Him for emergencies? God longs for you to spend your day with Him. The more you ask the Holy Spirit to open your eyes, the more you recognize God’s hand on your life. As a result, you become His reflection. 
In ten weeks, through Reflecting Him, you will: Realize life is not about me, but all about Him. See daily applications for lessons learned from scripture. Understand how God is directing your life – often without you knowing it. Learn the importance of prayer in your everyday activities. Discover the joyful intimacy of a life filled with Jesus. Realize how your personal relationship with Jesus changes when you make Him part of everything you do and much more!

My review:

It took less than 10 minutes for me to realize Carla McDougal's 'Reflecting Him: Living for Jesus and loving it' would be an amazing experience provided I opened my heart, let the energy flow and forget all about the time frame!
I did it so well I completely forgot I was part of a tour blog!

Carla McDougal (check out her blog here) inspires others and challenges each of us to live a full life in His name! This Bible study covers a 10 week course and each week includes 5 days of personal reflections, scriptures, hidden treasures, a celebration of treasured gifts and a reflection pause sure to reach out to each of us. Her carefully selected illustrations are sure to appeal to anyone!

In this author you find a Mother, a Sister, a Friend and you feel yourself come alive and find countless dreams awakening! It is sure to make you feel whole and I very much enjoy the experience!
Personally I use a quiet time period each night to read in bed and I found myself anticipating the next installment! 
I would like to clarify this study is by no means aimed only at women!
Perhaps it is my upbringing but I have yet to reconcile myself to seeing women and men worshipping apart and children being relegated to a place other than the sanctuary! I believe families should worship together. How else can they share the Holy Spirit and enrich their lives?
My favourite: Week 4, Day 2, Here comes the Son! Unlike Carla I did not experience an eclipse whilst growing up (but now I cannot wait to do as she did!).
I found myself sharing with my husband the whole chapter as facts came to light and we soon perused definitions and scriptures together. (I have promised to loan him the book as soon as I finish the rest of Week 9!)

It remains for me to add I felt 'renewed'! This is an experience I recommend to anyone, it will enrich you!
By all means this is a 'keeper'! 

I give it 5 stars!
