It's Not Okay with Meby Janine Maxwell
It begins on September 11th, 2001 in New York City as Janine is evacuated from her hotel by police gunfire and told to run for her life. That world changing event was the catalyst that sent Janine in to a deep depression and on into the darkest parts of Africa in her search for the meaning of life. Janine owned one of the largest marketing companies in Canada until God told her to close her business and wait. What happens next is a roller coaster ride from the board room to the streets of Africa. Janine's honesty and transparency is refreshing and raw. Her story telling paints a picture that takes the reader right into the heart of each experience and leaves no room for escape. Janine's journey in to the heart of Africa finds her standing face to face with the AIDS pandemic and trying to understand what to do with 15 million orphans who are left in its wake. It's Not Okay With Me provides truth and insights into Africa in a way that is fresh and filled with hope.

Maxwell has written a compelling read about the plight of the victims of the AIDS pandemic in sub-Sahara Africa. The story of how God wrenched her heart away from her comfortable existence, and called her and her family to serve the orphans and poor is an extraordinary tale of God's call on a life and a response of obedience. This book begs to be read in a single setting, and yet pondered at great length over time! You cannot read this without gaining enlightenment to the plight of the African continent and those who inhabit it. But beware - it will challenge you in ways that might just lead you to ask - 'Am I making enough of a difference with this life God gave me?'
This book makes you aware of so much that you might have not been aware of before. This book has changed my life forever and my outlook on life. It also has brought me closer to God and has influenced me to help out in Africa my entire life (with Heart for Africa)!!!!! I am so thankful for Janine Maxwell and her sharing her own story. I am so blessed to have been able to read her book and to know her personally (I really do). Now, I have a heart for Africa, and I hope your life will be changed by this story. 'It's Not Okay With Me' is a MUST read!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This book speaks to the heart about the aids pandemic in Africa and how it affects the children that are orphaned. This book was written by a women who has decided to devote her life to finding a solution, one life at a time. God is truly working through her.
