Lysa TerKeurst shares inspiring stories from her own life along with compelling biblical insights as she describes what it means to partner with God in all decisions and actions. Readers will learn to: discern the voice of God and truly say yes to His call; see what wholehearted obedience looks like on a daily basis; give themselves to God; and let Him affect lives around them. This book reveals how honoring God produces a life of deep joy and great purpose. It is an invitation to seek God and boldly ask for and expect more from the Christian life. The Bible study series will meet in the parlor.
