From the Back of the Book

Many of us have our "go to" verses. The ones we memorize, post on social media, and hang on our walls. But sometimes we need a fresh word or promise for the season we find ourselves in--something that ignites our faith in the face of fear, doubt, loneliness, insecurity, or overwhelming circumstances.

In this powerful, accessible new book, author and speaker Laurie Short mines the Scriptures, revealing insights and promises from 40 verses we often overlook. Digging in to these "in between" verses, she unearths fresh wisdom, guidance, and encouragement that will help you seek and experience God in new, dynamic ways. From trusting God's timing, to not worrying about the future, to holding on to faith when things look dark, the hidden insights found in these verses will help you navigate the challenges that cross your path, breathe new life into your weary soul, and ignite your faith once again.

My Thoughts

I enjoyed this book very much. Every chapter focuses on one "lesser-known" Bible verse and what we can learn from it. I used this in my quiet time, however it could be used in a group setting as well. Each chapter is only a few pages long, but there is just enough to make you think. I thought the questions at the end of each chapter were OUTSTANDING and would be great to discuss in a small group setting. I will be keeping this on my shelf for future use and plan to give a couple of copies as gifts. I recommend this book!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
