Love Skip Jump by Shelene Bryan is an inspiring book about how saying “Yes” to God and the opportunities placed in front of you. Sometimes it isn’t easy saying yes, and for that reason, I knew I had to read this book!
“Every significant event in the Bible happened because someone said yes to God. Start living the adventure of yes today!
Shelene Bryan had it all-a wonderful husband, two great kids, a rewarding job, a dream home, and more. Then a friend saw the pictures on the refrigerator door of the two African kids Shelene's family sponsors and she asked, "How do you know those kids are real?" That question changed Shelene's life forever.
In , Shelene shares how she loved being safe and comfortable. She had no desire to leave the USA. But she couldn't shake the question and soon was on a plane to Africa. She said yes to God, and not only met the kids her family sponsors but opened herself up to the journey God had been preparing for her, including founding Skip1.org, a charity that provides food and clean water to children around the world.
Some of the most amazing things God wants to do in our lives involve allowing him to take us on uncomfortable journeys.
Don't miss out on the incredible adventure God has for you. Say yes to God-love, skip, and jump your way to his plans for you!” – Love Skip Jump
Love Skip Jump feels like an open letter to you as you read it. Calling you to take action and be more positive and open to receiving God and faith into your life. I enjoyed how this book is spiritual while still keeping it fun and enjoyable to read. This is a truly uplifting read that leaves the reader feeling encouraged and motivated to make positive changes in their life.
So, stop saying “no”, and start saying “yes” to the positive things God has planned for you. You don’t know where that one yes may lead you in your life, and that is the point – God has it planned for you, and it is something that is most likely not what you have originally thought or planned out for your life, but that is where the adventure is!
This is a great book that I highly recommend to readers of all ages and faiths.
