Women often pack their lives with family, friends, and faithful service, yet still end up feeling empty and unfulfilled. In Walk It Out, Tricia Goyer demonstrates to women that walking out the mandates of Scripture allows God to spark passion and mission within them.

Whether believers realize it or not, God intended for them to do what the Bible says: adopt the orphan, take the gospel into all the world, and care for the needy. These are mandates that point believers down the path of true living and eternal life.

Sometimes those steps are easy, but many times they require a move outside of what feels safe or secure. When women stop focusing on their own dreams and purposes, and instead focus on God’s dreams and purposes, everything changes.

My thoughts:  WALK IT OUT is a book for women who want to make a difference, but maybe they are too scared, too ashamed, or don't know where or how to start.  

Tricia Goyer is an amazing person (I only briefly met her once and we did not connect, just more of a hi/bye thing because we know each by name) who has done some things she's ashamed of. (Haven't we all?) But unlike some of us, Tricia opened her heart to God's leading and He began to lead her and John down amazing paths of ministering to Teen Moms, working at pregnancy centers, mission trips, adoption, and more. 

She has some practical suggestions for things we all need. Creating quiet time - emptying the schedule instead of run, run, run all the time. How to help the homeless. How mission trips can change your life.  So many things happen to Tricia and she is so willing to open the doors wide and let God in to work through her how He will. 

 I (on the other hand) am terrified. I see $200 in checking when I need $2,000 and I go into a panic.  But she, and her daughter, give it to God and watch that money show up mere minutes before the deadline. I'd be an emotional wreck and not serenely confident in His ability! 

WALK IT OUT is a book for women like you. Like me. Ones who want to be used by God but aren't sure how. What was the lowest place in your life? Can you turn it into something to be used by God?  

My low spots were when my mother had a stroke and I was a caregiver -- alone.  God could use me to relive other caregivers or encourage them.   Or when I had breast cancer. God could call me to minister that direction. Or my son who is wrestling with problems that I'm ashamed to share. I have a few others, but I haven't thrown my doors wide open and shared my hurts with many. But maybe, thanks to God putting Tricia Goyer's Walk It Out in my hands, in time, I will. 

A timely book that will help many find their low-spot, passion, or gifts and use it for God.  And if you are truly open, He may use a once-in-a-lifetime trip to minister for Him as He did Tricia Goyer, Robin Jones Gunn, and others. 

An amazing nonfiction book. Discussion questions and action plans are included.  

I was given a free copy. All opinions are my own.

Opening up to share all that one has been through or struggles with is difficult. Goyer definitely has done this. I've read a couple of her other books. Walk It Out would probably be a great small group women study. Thank you for sharing.
