Overview

“Child of God, you are going to love this book! You’ll find yourself nodding, underlining, and shouting ‘Amen!’ all the way through. How to Be Blessed and Highly Favored is full of God’s unchanging truth and Michelle’s real-world wisdom, wrapped around the story of one of the ‘good girls’ of the Bible: Mary, the mother of Jesus. Trust me…you will be blessed!”
–Liz Curtis Higgs, best-selling author of Bad Girls of the Bible

Prepare to crawl into God’s lap and experience His highest blessings as your own.

A popular phrase often heard after inquiring about someone’s welfare is the enthusiastic response, “Blessed and highly favored!” Yet many of us–even those who use this expression readily–don’t really lead a lifestyle that reflects God’s blessings.

It’s not that such blessings aren’t ours to receive; the Bible clearly teaches that it is the Father’ s perfect will to give us the kingdom. The problem is that we don’t know how to fully access His generous gifts. What does God require of those He chooses to use and bless? Join Michelle McKinney Hammond as she takes a fresh, spirited look at Mary, the mother of Jesus, and shows us how to:

• appeal to God’s heart
• remain sensitive to His voice
• believe Him for the impossible
• submit to and rest in His plan
• live before Him with a servant’s heart

Get Ready to Receive God’s Extra-Dimensional Blessings!

Publishers Weekly
What is the difference between living as a casual follower of God and being set apart by God to receive blessings? Could it be that God gives directions, instructions even, on how to receive his highest blessings? Author and speaker Hammond (What to Do Until Love Finds You and Secrets of an Irresistible Woman) shares her discoveries on this often-hazy principle in this enthusiastic guide for women. Citing Mary, the mother of Jesus, as the only woman in the Bible to be singled out as "blessed and highly favored," Hammond shines the spotlight into Mary's heart as she was called upon to bear and rear Christ. According to Hammond, Mary's willingness to obey God, to do things His way, paved the path to true blessing for this unwed mother. In a conversational tone, Hammond outlines the importance of living solely for God, developing a listening spirit that discerns truth and stands strong in faith, welcoming a role of submission, making one's life speak for God, and relinquishing personal pursuits in order to embrace God's best gifts. Hammond's is not a "name-it-and-claim-it" form of prosperity theology; she insists that in the Bible, those who were highly blessed also suffered the most. But the final chapter explains that every person who willingly sacrifices for God will be rewarded greatly. Hammond's thoughts on "blessings" communicate promise and are biblically sound, making this a book that is sure to be relished by Christian women. (Aug.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

I bought this book as a spontaneous purchase. I never really intended on reading it, but thought the title would look good in my library. Pathetic, right? Hah! God has put me through some serious growing pains lately and changed my outlook on life, my role in ministry, and my upbringing as a stuffy Pentecostal. This book, written with much love and common sense, helped me take out the religion in my life and come into the Presence of God again as a true worshipper. You really want to read this book. I do not care what religion you may belong to this book reminds us that we all belong to the same God, and He loves worshippers!!!I can't wait to have my daughters read this book! Hey Mrs. Hammond, got one written for boys?

Once I picked up this book, it was almost impossible to put it down. Fantastic writing style. Made me want to pump up the volume on my fellowship with God. Like a great movie that you want to see more than once, to make sure you didn't miss anything the first time. Gave me comfort knowing that God notices me.
