It’s More than a Book!

Over the past several days, I have been so encouraged to see God at work in ways Dave and I dreamed he would when we set out to write “Finding Your Way Back to God.”

Last week I had the opportunity to be interviewed by Susie Larson on her “Live the Promise’ radio show. Susie repeatedly expressed her enthusiasm for the message of the book and insisted on having me back to talk more.  Her website included the following statement:

Jon urges us to walk in humility and understanding with others. “We’re all prodigals; we’re all on a journey. We’re all finding our way back to God.” Jon says the journey starts when we start remembering who we are. “We forget because we’re busy. We forget because we’re distracted.”

How do we come home? Jon says it starts with awakenings – five of them.

1. Awakening to longing – there’s got to be more.
2. Awakening to regret – I wish I could start over.
3. Awakening to help – I can’t do this on my own.
4. Awakening to love – God loves me deeply after all.
5. Awakening to life – Now this is living!

You can listen to an excerpt from interview on the “Live the Promise” program right here.

 

Earlier this week, my friend and NewThing movement leader, Joe Wilson told me he had just a handful of books left from the many that he bought and is handing out to friends and family whom he knows will benefit from the message of the book as well.

Then yesterday “Finding Your Way Back to God” was listed as the #1 Seller in the Faith and Spirituality category among Kindle books on Amazon.

If you’ve followed this blog or heard Dave or me talk about this book, you know it’s more than a book, for us it’s a life-long mission. We want to be all about helping people find their way back to God!
