Overview

“Do you ever feel that life is racing past while you’re just struggling to survive?”

Is that how you feel? As if life is racing past you and you’re barely able to catch up with it?

When was the last time you lay on your back and watched the sky, picking out shapes in the clouds? Or noticed a trail of ants at your feet? Children delight in these sorts of things, so why don’t adults? Running Barefoot on Holy Ground calls for a return to this kind of childlikeness before the Lord—to look at the relationship with your Heavenly Father through fresh eyes.

Beginning with a quote or poem, each chapter is filled with wisdom and scriptural insights and ends with suggested exercises that are designed to help bring you into that deep, unreserved relationship with God that you’ve always wanted.

“With personal examples, colorful metaphors, and biblical illustrations Jeanne Gowen Dennis encourages us to nurture a tender, intimate relationship with God as our ‘Abba, Daddy,’ by seeing Him through the eyes of a child.”

—Rebecca Barlow Jordan

The Lamplighter
You need this little book on your church library shelf; on your bedside table, and on your gift list. It's so good! It's a gentle read with such a good message, one we have all heard but which we often ignore thinking we can handle our problems on life's little bumps by ourselves. We can't!

    Take off your shoes!

    From the first time I heard the title, I knew I wanted to read this book. I was not disappointed. With topics ranging from childlike faith to childlike worship, Dennis helps us see God through the eyes of a child and gives us a picture of the Father/daughter relationship He desires to have with each of us. Each chapter ends with 'Child's Play'--specific steps we can take to peel away the layers of adulthood and love Him with childlike abandon. So grab the book, take off your shoes, and get ready to become a Daddy's girl!
