What People Are Saying

Lynn Fortner
"...In Better Off Than You Think, Ralph tackles a critical question that virtually all Christians ask themselves at some point in their walks: 'What does God really think of me?' Ralph points out that the well-intended, but self-deprecating, response many give to this question provides the Enemy with much needed ammunition to attack Believers at the very core of their faith. Through an examination of scripture, key individuals in the Bible, and personal testimony, Ralph argues persuasively for the case that God's opinion of us often exceeds our own opinion of ourselves, and that we should be empowered by this understanding to pursue even more fervently--and with more confidence--the things of God.... This book represents a continuation of that theme, taking it to a new level of understanding and practical application to all Christians. Better Off Than You Think will be an inspiration to all who value their walk with God and yearn to better understand God's calling on their lives."--(Lynn Fortner, Senior Pastor, Culver Community Church, Culver City, California)
Malcolm Smith
"This book will seriously spoil you for the religion of rules and the futile attempt to keep them! It will also lead you to the heart of the real Gospel--relationship with the God who passionately loves you. This is a must read for those weary of aimless wandering in religious systems while knowing that there must be more to knowing God than what they presently experience. There is and this book will show you the way."--(Malcolm Smith, President of Unconditional Love International)
Marita Littauer
"...Ralph has captured--and effectively communicated--what God thinks of us. By claiming God's opinion, rather than that of the various negative forces that surround on a daily basis, we can change our lives so that they really work (more and better than we ever dreamed of). Once this concept is a constant in our lives, the climax of this collection of wonderful stories and biblical truths is an increased attraction to God and a desire for more and more of Him!"--(Marita Littauer, international speaker and author of Wired That Way)
Sue Thompson
"...Ralph's engaging style convinced me anew that God isn't twisting my arm to get me to do things His way; instead, He invites me to discover how uncomplicated it can be to walk with Him, yielding simply to the Holy Spirit as I take a breath and wait in the glorious moment of the 'intentional pause.' I am changed, and it feels wonderful."--(Sue Thompson, author of The Prodigal Brother)
Twila Paris
"Ralph Harris reminds us in a refreshing way that we are not on our own when it comes to pleasing God. It is Christ in us who shines forth His glory. And we can rest in the knowledge that He is able to accomplish in us and through us all that we are called to be."--(Twila Paris, popular singer and songwriter)
