# book review and giveaway

You were Born for this review and giveaway!

I've been blessed to be able to read and participate in some of the best book tours out there.

After receiving this book in the mail I couldn't wait to dig into it, it's SO good and so filled with amazing insight you will no doubt enjoy reading.

This book is all about showing you that you can be part of a miracle, you don't just have to wait for it to happen, you CAN ask God to use you.

Another thing that I enjoyed about this one is that it has short chapters and nowadays, being a mom means that I don't have much time to sit down with a book, this one is perfect because I can quickly get through a chapter and not have to worry about leaving it halfway and coming back later.

Bruce Wilkinson is back. The whole title to his new book is, You Were Born for This: 7 Keys to a Life of Predictable Miracles. In it, Wilkinson challenges us to expect God to work through us, and gives many examples of how He does so. Most of us have had random moments and chance meetings (divine appointments, if you will), where either we were helped or we helped another, in a way that could only be explained as by being directed by God. Yes, God works miracles in the supernatural way that only He can, but more often, He uses people who are willing to submit to his prompting to accomplish His purposes. And whether we are on the giving or receiving end of His work, we grow and become better for it. There is a whole world out there needing a touch from God; all we have to do is open our eyes, our ears and our hearts, and God will direct us toward the miracle He wants to perform in someone’s life.
