Book Review of
Made To Move Mountains
Life is an incredible journey with ups and downs. We soar, struggle, scale and stumble, and often stand at the edge of cliffs, afraid to step into the unknown, unsure of where we will land. But instead of running away, we are called by God to stand firm, muster up what faith we can, and take a step. Because we were made to move mountains.
In this inspiring book, Kristen Welch calls you to step out in faith and climb the mountain in front of you–not because you are good enough or adequate or able, but because God makes a way where there is no way. With heartbreaking and hopeful personal stories, Scripture, and questions for contemplation, she draws you out of fear and into a holy confidence, showing you that the mountain in your path was put there on purpose, so that you could exercise–and grow–your faith.
I have followed Kristen Welch’s blog for years and read one of her other books. When I read the description for Made to Move Mountains, I knew that I wanted to read it. There is nothing ground breaking in this book, but it is a great reminder that God gives us the strength to endure whatever he puts before us. Not everyone is called to do what Kristen has done, but we are all called to do something. We can accomplish whatever He has for us to do.
I really appreciate Kristen’s honesty about her daughter’s health issues. Our family has dealt several major health issues over the last few years and I could really relate to what she shared and how honest she was. But her honesty also reminded me that God will guide us through whatever challenges that He has before us.
