Being a Girl Who Serves: How to Find Your Life by Giving It Away

Overview

How do you react when God asks you to do something "beneath" you? Do you ignore His voice, hoping He'll find someone else to complete the job? How often do you sacrifice yourself to help others? Serving others is not a cushy job; it often requires that you stoop at least a little. But to be a servant of God, you must surrender your pride and not hesitate to roll up your sleeves and get to work.

Matthew 20:28 tells us that Jesus did not come to be served, but to serve. And if we...

Overview

How do you react when God asks you to do something "beneath" you? Do you ignore His voice, hoping He'll find someone else to complete the job? How often do you sacrifice yourself to help others? Serving others is not a cushy job; it often requires that you stoop at least a little. But to be a servant of God, you must surrender your pride and not hesitate to roll up your sleeves and get to work.

Matthew 20:28 tells us that Jesus did not come to be served, but to serve. And if we are to be like Jesus, we must also serve others. But servanthood is not a position you can step into and out of when you feel like it; it is a lifestyle. Make it your lifestyle. God doesn't need big people to do big things; He can use you right where you are. A little action in your tiny space of the world can lead to amazing things.

    The sub-title says it all.

    In the me-first society in which we live, Shannon Kubiak Primicerio's Being a Girl Who Serves offers a refreshing premise: How to find your life by giving it away. Written to girls from early teens to women of all ages, it is a guide to becoming a servant in the image of Christ. Shannon shares many practical, personal examples of people who have heeded the call to servanthood...and changed their world as a result. A great personal devotional or study guide for a small group, Being a Girl Who Serves is a book every reader will love and benefit from.

    If you want to live your life for Jesus...

    This book has called me to be a servant like my Jesus was. 'For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.' The only way to find LIFE is by giving your life away...giving it back to the One who gave His life for you. As Christian girls, we are princesses...but a different kind of princess than the world thinks of because we are called to be servant-princesses! This book will encourage you very much. Shannon's own servant's heart shines through as she writes about giving our lives to Jesus. Please read this book! You will never regret it!
