A Life of Miracles by Don Schulze

About the Book:

The true story of an ordinary family who embarked on an adventure full of miracles

 At first, Don Schulze wasn’t sure he was really hearing from God . . .
because what he was hearing didn’t make sense. Could God really be calling him to leave a good career and a stable life to take his family on a journey of ministry across the country and around the world? And could Don rely on God to take care of his loved ones along the way? Would they trust and understand God’s call as well?

With a deep breath and a lot of faith, Don and his family took the leap and said yes—stepping forward into what would become a lifelong quest to follow God’s calling. In A Life of Miracles, you’ll travel with them across the years as you witness inspiring encounters with God—dramatic rescues, just-in-time provisions, amazing miracles of healing, and God’s surprising answers to “everyday” prayers. As you read, you’ll see how closely God sticks by us, even in our most uncomfortable moments.

This modern-day spiritual odyssey takes you on a heartwarming, soul-stirring exploration of faith. Join Don and his family on their adventures . . . and discover how your own daily walk with God can add up to a life of miracles.

My Thoughts:

Well, the book is worth the price just for the first three chapters!

By the time I got to A New Life I was hooked, and made my husband sit down and read it.  With each new chapter I bounced between 'did that really happen' and 'oh, I want that in my life!'

Don Schulze writes about real faith in a real life from an extraordinary God who can and will do extraordinary things.  When you read about Sheba, you'll be inclined to say 'nuh-uh', but I ask you...why would he lie?  Why include it if it didn't happen?

This is the life we can live with mustard seed faith, and that's not that much, people.  I finished chapter six, We Ran on Empty, then picked up the phone and called my daughter to pray for her well-being because she was down and had been without medication for three days.

I'm loving the "Tyndale Summer Reading Program", because I'm discovering books I probably wouldn't have read (it isn't too late to sign up...the program runs until August 31st).  My thanks to them for my advance copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

If your faith has felt dry, stale or lacking at all, pick up a copy of "A Life of Miracles" and soak it in.  Maybe we lack miracles because we just don't look for them any longer.  This book is life-changing, and I'm glad it is changing me!

Happy Reading!
