Beautiful Things Happen When a Woman Trusts God*

Sheila Walsh is an incredible woman of God. When I first became a Christian she was one of my favorite artists. Then I saw her at a Women of Faith Conference. I loved her then. She really knows how to speak to a woman's heart. When I was offered a chance to review her book "Beautiful Things Happen When a Woman Trusts God", from Thomas Nelson Publishing, I jumped at the chance.
Sheila has an incredible way with her words, she makes you feel like you are right in the journey yourself, like it is your story. You can feel the pain and the happiness that is expressed so well in the book. Sheila's relationship with God is so amazing and her faith is unwavering.
Sheila is encouraging to the reader as she lets you know that anyone can have a close relationship to God, you just have to trust Him. I love that she doesn't hide the struggles she has experienced, but puts the focus back on the lover of her soul.
I also love how she takes several characters from the Bible and their stories and shows us how similar the trials and tribulations are with our own lives.
One of my favorite quotes from the book is: "We tend to think that if God is with us, things will fall into place in ways that make us feel comfortable and safe. That is what trust in God procures, right? Not at all. The logic is not; trust God and he will always keep you safe. Bad things-frightening things!-happen every day to those who love and trust the Lord. The truth is: what makes us safe is absolute truth that God is with us no matter what our circumstances."
I really enjoyed this book and the honesty and openness that Sheila shares with her readers. I am a fan of Sheila's and I look forward to reading more of her books.
Happy Reading**
