Overview

Maybe it's time to stop ignoring God, and start embracing him instead . . .

Being the new girl is never easy—especially when it comes to finding your faith. But girls, you don't need a decoder ring or a big neon sign to point the way to God. Rather, you need a friend to tell it to you straight, equip you with information, and provide some much-needed encouragement along the way. Indeed, you need guidance from someone who has already walked a mile in your shoes.

In For the Love of God, Jenny Lee Sulpizio invites you to silence those doubts, experience God's grace, and breathe in the unconditional love you were always meant to receive. This book serves as a guide for women who are seeking a genuine relationship with God, yet are unsure of their Creator and are in search of answers. Because this walk with God—this journey with Jesus? It's about to change everything.

Open. Honest. Relevant. Excellent. Those are all words that would work to describe this book. I would absolutely use it as a resource for reaching new Christians. But, as a woman whose been a believer in Jesus since I was a young child, and has been working at this faith thing for quite a while, this book was a good reminder of what might be considered the basics, but are also concepts so important to our walk with God. It was also a good reminder for me not to get caught up in "Christianese" but to just be honest about how awesome God's love is and how it has affected everything about me.

Excellent tool for faith-building! Sometimes we need help as we try to navigate thru our questions about faith. This isn't something we want to get wrong. But asking can be tricky because we risk being judged, criticized, or feeling stupid. That is why I love this book. Jenny breaks down faith into bite-sized pieces, making it easy to understand. She ends each chapter with extras like scripture references, additional books to read, songs that speak to a specific topic, etc. Her style is engaging without sounding like she feels better than us. She's transparent and funny and someone I'd have coffee with. If you are new to the faith or looking for answers, this book is for you!

Here is a simple look at what Christianity has to offer. Salvation, peace and a relationship with their Creator. Jenny Sulpizio takes you on a journey of the heart as she explores the way God wants to love us all the way to heaven. Enjoy the read. Enjoy hearing the Gospel in a truthful voice.

For the Love of God by Jenny Lee Sulpizio is a must-read for any woman wondering what this "faith in God" thing is all about. It's basically a guide to walk a woman through the various different aspects of faith. There's a chapter on prayer, one on grace, one on forgiveness, one on servanthood, etc. There were two things I really liked about this book. First of all, I love how authentic Jenny is in her writing. Secondly, I love that at the end of each chapter is a list of recommended books to read about the topic, recommended Bible verses, recommended songs, and application questions to take the reader deeper.

I'd read anything by author, Jenny Sulpizio. Why? Because it's like hanging out with your best girlfriend. She's real. She's transparent. She doesn't judge but lifts me up. For the woman who is feeling discouraged in her walk of faith, or maybe alone with her doubts, these words are healing and helpful beyond measure. For the woman who loves someone with all their heart but doesn't know how to tell them about God, this is your opportunity--the PERFECT Christmas/Birthday/I Love you because...GIFT! There are some books that reach into your heart and grab you. This is that book.
