Overview

Is God real? How can we be sure? How does anyone really know whether God is actually out there? And if God is real, is He knowable? Approachable? Relational?

Perhaps these or similar questions have crossed your mind at one time or another. The truth is that at some point in our lives all of us have had doubts and questions about God. You might be having those doubts right now, and maybe you are even feeling guilty about them.

Don't! God wants you to seek Him, and He can handle your doubts. You may be well on the verge of embarking on a voyage of discovering who God is--who He really is--that will radically change your life.

Meeting God is not about becoming religious, following a set of rituals or even having biblical knowledge. It's about a relationship. It's a friendship between two parties who know one another and love one another.

Seek was written to help you explore questions about God and to experience this type of relationship with Him. Through simple, jargon-free language and practical examples, you will explore all the "big issues" of the faith: What is God like? Is there a right way to pray? What is the Bible about? How does a person learn to have faith? You will be introduced to God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Counselor, the Holy Spirit. You will discover how to truly encounter God and develop a relationship with Him.

God has promised that if you seek Him, you will find Him. Are you ready to begin the journey?

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Seek is the perfect book for any woman who desires to get acquainted with God. Donna Jones leads women on an inspiring journey and does a beautiful job of weaving the practical, the biblical, and the personal in her introduction to God. Her refreshing and engaging style will leave you wanting to know Him more.
Angela Bisignano, Ph.D.
Speaker and Consultant, Author, Beautifully Gifted: Equipping Today’s Women for the High Calling of God

Donna is committed to honoring the people God has placed in her life—including you. Seek is solidly rooted in the timeless teaching of God’s Word, and it is designed to put Christianity on the bottom shelf and answer questions you have always wanted to ask but couldn’t. You are headed for a journey with the ultimate power to live the life you always wanted.
Brett Eastman
President and Founder, Lifetogether Ministries

Donna Jones has captured the lofty concepts of the Christian faith and brought them down to where we live. Whether you are seeking the basics of the Bible, the practice of prayer, or the help of the Holy Spirit, this practical volume will enable you to better understand and consistently apply your faith. It is a powerful book that will quickly become your new go-to guide for seeking—and finding—a deep, meaningful life in Christ.
Karen Ehman
Proverbs 31 Ministries Director of Speakers, Author of six books, including LET. IT. GO.: How to Stop Running the Show and Start Walking in Faith

I loved Donna the moment I met her, and I also loved this book the moment I picked it up. Packed within these pages is such crystal clear truth about who God is and how He woos and pursues His people! If you’re thirsty to meet the real God who ministers to us in real ways, you’re going to love this book too!
Shannon Ethridge, M.A.
International Speaker, Bestselling Author, the Every Woman’s Battle series

In Seek, Donna Jones tackles the question that we’ve all asked and, quite possibly, may be asking at this very moment: “God, who are You, really?” As she peels back the layers of curiosity and unveils the truth, she guides us into knowing more about the person of God, the selflessness of Christ, and the power and guidance of the Holy Spirit. If you’re curious about God—if you’re seeking to know Him more intimately—this book is for you.
Jenifer Jernigan
Founder, Diving Deeper Ministries, Co-owner, Internet Café Devotions

Ironically, my best stuff for equipping men comes from what women reveal to me about their longings and frustrations in life. One thing women tell me is that broken female culture can be sincerely insincere—well meaning but often shallow, isolating and unsatisfying. Into this world drowning in synthetic connections and spiritual life comes Donna Jones. Seek is a coffeehouse connect in the midst of the gravities of life. If it were possible to feel a warm latte with a close friend, deeply connect, and be enriched with meaning through authentic dialogue, it is waiting for you in the pages of this book!
Kenny Luck
Author, Sleeping Giant, Founder, Every Man Ministries, Men’s Pastor, Saddleback Church, Lake Forest, California

This book delivers exactly what it promises—an intimate personalized introduction to God. In a wonderful blend of clear biblical truths and winsome personal stories, Donna Jones weaves a delightfully engaging encounter with our living Lord. The well-balanced blend of Donna’s wisdom and investigative biblical studies provides a wonderful journey for any woman who would like to get to know God—and it is a powerful refresher for any woman who would like to deepen and enrich her faith. I encourage you to pick up this book and dive in. Your life will never be the same.
Milan Yerkovich
Marriage Counselor, Relationship 180, Author, How We Love and How We Love Our Kids, Co-host, New Life Live

As a women’s ministry director, I know firsthand the importance of having resources for all women in your church. Sadly, not much has been available for the new believer or the woman with questions about God—until now. Seek is the “must have” book for women who are just beginning their spiritual journey or those who want to make sure they’re grounded in the basics. It is filled with insights and inspiration for any woman who wants to know and experience God in her everyday life. I love this book!
Lori Marshall
Women’s Ministries Director, Crossline Community Church, Laguna Hills, California

Wouldn’t you want an intimate and inspirational relationship with the living God? Seek is the key to finding your deeper relationship with God. Donna Jones has truly unlocked the door to the riches of God’s relationship storeroom!
Dr. Carl Moeller
President/CEO, Open Doors USA

Is God real? Can I know Him? Can He really be my friend? What do I do with the Bible? How do I pray? Are those questions you’ve asked? In her down-to-earth, girlfriend-next-door style, Donna Jones walks with you and gives you direction and honest answers in your faith journey. Seek. Read. Find. There’s so much to discover as you grow to know the God you’re looking for.
Jill Savage
CEO, Hearts at Home, Author, Real Moms . . . Real Jesus

Reading Seek is like sitting down with a close girlfriend while she lays out a plan and purpose for having a genuine, growing relationship with Jesus. Donna’s Conversational style will capture you as she dispels confusion about familiar Christian terminology. She gives practical, biblical advice to women on how to begin and continue in a lifelong relationship with Jesus. As the director of women’s ministries in my local church, Seek is the book I’ve been searching for.
Vicki Tiede
Speaker and Bible Teacher, Author, When Your Husband Is Addicted to Pornography: Healing for Your Wounded Heart

I love this book by Donna that helps us understand the basic fundamentals of the Christian faith. She is genuine and charming, and the book is an enjoyable read. It would be the perfect book for a women’s small group.
