Overview


You are part of the miracle God is looking for to help change the world. Right now — in the midst of your busy daily life — God stands ready to help you find your purpose. His hand is stretched out to you from across the water. All you need to do is be willing to take that first step out of the boat. In Willing to Walk on Water, Caroline Barnett reveals that God created us to be happiest when we are doing the things we care about most — when we’re using our innate talents and passions to make the lives of those around us better. Drawing on her experiences at the Dream Center — a ministry full of unlikely miracles in inner-city Los Angeles — Caroline helps you find your “trigger,” the specific need in your world you can’t stand to see unmet any longer. She’ll show you how to act with your eyes and heart open to God’s leading, and to balance your dreams of making a difference with your everyday responsibilities. Give God your willingness and He will give you a reignited passion for life. Take that first step toward Him; you’ll find the water beneath your feet is as firm as solid ground.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Audio
For Barnett, happiness can be found when individuals embrace their talents and passions to improve the lives of others. Here, Barnett draws from her experiences at the Dream Center, a ministry founded by her husband in Los Angeles, and tells stories of the people who’ve come in and out of the Dream Center. Barnett discusses some of the programs she initiated, such as a food truck ministry to feed thousands of people each month, and Project Prevention, designed to keep impoverished households together. Read by the perky and likable Sarah Jindra, this audiobook—unlike some religious audio productions—is never aggressively cheerful. Jindra’s clean, confident performance certainly feels genuine and perfectly embodies the tone of Barnett’s book about her idealism and work in Los Angeles. A Tyndale Momentum paperback. (Apr.)
From the Publisher

"Pastor Caroline Barnett guides listeners to God's unique plan in this uplifting spiritual work. She explains how one person can make a difference if he or she is on God's journey and serving the Lord. Sarah Jindra knows exactly how to vocalize Barnett's key points: Her upbeat and pleasant voice sounds welcoming and familiar. She delivers each relatable story in a clear voice that persuades the listener to think about its message. Bible passages, personal stories, and a discussion guide all enhance this audiobook. Those seeking answers on how to trust God and find meaning in life will find motivation and encouragement in these teachings."

    Highly Recommended

    I loved willing to walk on water. It's a very inspirational story of how one woman helped the Dream Center in Los Angeles with her husband, and she shows us how we can also be willing to walk on water in our own lives, and help make the world a better place.

    Walking on water, as defined here by Caroline Barnett, is not just a story in the Bible or a perceived impossibility.  It's a way to live your life with passion and purpose.  It does take risk and faith - but the rewards far outweigh everything else.




    Broken into three sections, "Discovering", "Conquering", and "Doing", Caroline shares (through personal stories, Bible verses, and testimonials from other leaders and volunteers at the Dream Center) different ways that walking on water has been used in their lives and how it has always brought about incredible, miraculous change.  She gives example after example, both large and small, of ideas that we can begin right now to fight social injustices and impact the world around us.  We simply need to be willing, and look for opportunities to act.




    I am familiar with the Dream Center and it's mission, and read "The Cause Within You" by Caroline's husband, Matthew Barnett (also recommended).  I identify with their passion and admire them tremendously.  This book was meaningful as well; I especially liked the chapter "What's Your Trigger?" where Caroline asks, "What injustice grips your heart the most....When you are triggered by a particular injustice, your compassion doesn't end with a few shed tears.  It leads to action."  If you have ever wondered, Is it possible to live in such a way that I regularly impact people for eternity? If there is, what could I do about it?, this is an excellent book to help you figure it out.

    The description of the book promises to help you identify what you are created to do, to unveil your passions and calling. Barnett touches on willingness and availability to step out in faith and serve God. While reading through the book, the first half of it seemed like an advertisement for the organization Barnett and her husband work with, the Dream Center. I just expected a little more.

    The second half of the book improved for me when Barnett shares stories of people that have been impacted by the Dream Center and how they are now serving. I enjoyed reading all of the stories, but I don't feel like I learned a whole lot from this book. I was happy to hear about the Dream Center and the wonderful success stories, but it would have been helpful to have other national organizations referenced that might also need workers.

    Overall, it was an ok book, but not quite what I expected.

    Powerful and Beautiful. Very Encouraging and Motivating. Caroline Barnett writes with humor, style, conviction and love. There are anecdotes and quotes to illustrate her very good points, and Scriptures to back them up. She tells us why self-help books are ineffective when we don't start by relying on God, and listening to the command to help others. The stories of life experiences from the author and others touched my heart. I have more ways to pray for, and more ways to help people after reading this book.

    This book discusses how to step out in faith ("walk on water") and do great things for God that help those around us. The author and her husband run the Dream Center in Los Angeles, which is a place that helps those in need. I thought the book was a good read with some interesting ideas on reaching out. There were many examples from the Dream Center of people who made a difference in the lives of the needy.

    "Willing to Walk on Water", by Caroline Barnett, is a book about stepping out in faith and trusting in God to work in you and through you in your Christian walk. To allow you to not only to be leaders, but to be servers as well.

    Remembering, how Great God is in our lives and the gift of Love that He has given to each and everyone of us. Trusting God with our lives knowing that He knows what is best for us and in what direction he guides us in the good, bad, and ugly.

    This is a "Wow" book for me! It changed my outlook on serving. It is a gift to serve, than a chore. It can transform you and change your life forward. I recommend this book to everyone!!!
