What an encouraging and challenging book. Margaret shares personal experience in her usual transparent and creative writing style. She reminds us to look for the wonder around us each and every day and gives us some specific "areas" in which to find that wonder. In addition to her personal experience, and in typical "Margaret style," she also takes us to the Scriptures to see the wonder of the mystery opened to us in the sacred page. Reading the book has encouraged me to pray a new prayer each day, "Lord, help me to live Wonderstruck."

Through imagery and life experience, Margaret Feinberg challenges the reader to be aware of the Presence of God all around us. I personally love the way she writes about the beauty of God. I highly recommend this book!

Margaret's gift of crafting word pictures together drew me in once again. I have read almost all Feinberg books and Wonderstruck is by far her best writing yet. Not one word is wasted in Wonderstruck. Each chapter left me wanting more and desiring to take the dare to live wonderstruck, too. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is going through the motions of Christianity--bored with the mundane and seeking more with their life. Wonderstruck gently stirs you awake to the gift of God's presence in every area of life.

Feinberg's stories are very vivid and based around events from her own life. My favorite chapter was about Cactus Jack--I won't say how she knows him--I don't want to give anything away. Makes me happy that a character like this actually exists in real life! Even if you don't gain anything else, the stories in themselves are worth reading

In this book, Margaret shares stories of when she was wonderstruck by God in ordinary places through ordinary happenings. She helps you, as the reader, to realize that the people and things around you in everyday life are full of wonder, if only we take time to see it. This book challenged me to live wonderstruck every day, and I am ready to accept this challenge! I believe this book is full of impact, and I can't wait to give several copies away for Christmas.

Wonderstruck will help you open your eyes and heart to the Glory of God all around you. He is with us in sorry and celebration, success and failure if we are only open to Him. In reading Wonderstruck you will be led to see His presence in the every day world,

As Margaret puts it, "I pray for pixie dust." Amazement. The idea that many of our Christian lives are spent in a comfortable groove tells us that we are missing out on God's best. Margaret points us to the wonder of God, creation, and even us. She details the revolutionary thought that God is yelling to us that all that we see is about Him and for us. Margaret calls us to be worshippers of a great, big God and not settle for the mundane. She is my favorite author and an amazing speaker. This book is a must-have for 2013 and beyond.

I loved Margaret Feinberg's latest book "Wonderstruck."  Just as she is so "easy" to listen to, her writing brings the breath of the Holy Spirit to bear upon the reader's heart.  This book was especially meaningful to me as I have just come through a challenging yet, glorious season in life (only Jesus can make challenges turn to happiness!!)and Margaret's words touched my heart, encouraging me with each passing day. What a hoot to know the "Peggy and Louie" of the first chapter! I am recommending this book to the women I lead at my church...awesome!  Wonderstruck!!

This is the best book I've read in a long time. I can't recommend it enough to anyone, whether you are a Christian or not, if you are remotely curious about that Person called God, read this! I thank God that He inspired Margaret to write it because we all need it as much as we need oxygen. It is God's Divine invitation to get to know Him in an exciting way and discover how much He is NOT like we pictured Him. Fantastic book!

Another GREAT book from Margaret Feinberg.  I loved the context of Wonder tackled in her newest writing.  I also loved the 30 Days of Wonder resource she added to this book.  Great space for reflection.  I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good hike and finds beauty in nature.  I love how she made the Scottish Highlands come alive.  A MUST READ!!!

Wow, what an awesome book! This is a manual for seeking God, not just a colorful imagery book. The language is wonderful, the sentences well crafted. Always a fan!

I have been reading this book and cannot put it down! It has given me a renewed hungry and expectancy for seeking God in a more intimate and personal way. I took the dare to pray for pixie dust in my own spiritual relationship with God and he is answering that request. It is a delight to see the different ways that he speaks to us that my eyes and ears were not aware of. Thanks Margaret for coming out with such a dynamic book that i pray will awaken the body of Christ and renew our love and expectancy for a greater and deeper relationship with him!

Once again I have been blessed by Margaret Feinberg with her newest work "Wonderstuck!" From the very first chapter to the very last chapter I felt like we were having a cup of rich coffee sitting in a beautiful scenic setting with Margaret eagerly sharing about the wonder of the Lord and challenging me to go deeper in my walk with Christ. I cried and laughed and felt a deep resonance with the storms of life she shared. The Lord's tender touch ...which we see when we are watching ...is a mystery yet profoundly real. We need only watch! I love that she included the 30 day devotional work at the end and have the online interaction! I cannot wait to have the DVD study become available. I know being able to use "Wonderstruck" as a resource in my Coaching practice, in giving retreats and women's ministry work at my church will be a major blessing in the lives of women in drawing them closer to Jesus! It surely has challenged me to walk in a richer, deeper way with my Lord and to be expectant to see His Wonders! Long story short. Margaret thank you for using your amazing talent and gift from the Lord to bless us all once again!

Have you ever went through a red light and could not remember if you looked to see if it was green. That creates a scary moment. Most likely you looked but it has become so common place that your mind does not even log it in anymore. That is what has happened in so many of our live in relation to God and His nearness. This is a must read but it is more. It is a must put in practice book. I was able to read a pre-release copy and now I have ordered 4 more for friends and family.

It is not often for me that I pick up a book and get out of it exactly what was promised on the cover.  I had been going through a rough time and her writing helped me rediscover the wonder of God's love. I was reminded to look for the small ways that God was present in my everyday life. Her invitation to toss back the covers and engage a life full of God's presence is a real one. She shares her personal struggle with the mundane and leads us into how to live wonderstruck.

 I want to announce the newest book I have read, given to me by Worthy Publishing. Wonderstruck by Margaret Feinberg. Our lives often lack wonder, because we do not open our eyes.This is what Margaret Feinberg is writing about. Her book is full of things that made me underline them, things that make sense. Her writing is bright, the word pictures are fresh in my mind from when I first saw them. Her book reminds us that we are in an Earth full of wonder all around us. She writes about the beauty of Creation, of relationships, of rest.   These are some of the word pictures that she wrote:  The evening alpenglow of a Colorado sunset when it looks like God has scattered thousands of rose petals across the snow for our pleasure. The woods of Scotland, looking like a forest in Middle Earth- dark, green, misty, and elvish, on a walking tour. The aurora borealis on an Alaskan night as you stand before a window when you should be asleep to watch the sky.  A horseback ride through a pine wood where the trees are holding as much snow as they can bear, and every time you touch a limb you are powdered with crystals.  These are the Wonders of life, the wonders that most of us miss.  That is the meat. The bones to avoid include the fact that Margaret has defended the egalitarian position in the past. In 2008 she defended the nomination of Sarah Palin  for Vice President in a debate on CNN against Dr. Baucham. I am a complementarian, and I hope I could defend why I believe in Biblical roles as timeless.  The Biblical gender roles are eternal in their commands and have many applications that look different for each family within their God ordained sphere.  In the interview, which can be accessed on youtube by searching Voddie Baucham on CNN, the host, a woman, asks if Dr. Baucham, is "sounding a little sexist" because he said that Isaiah was right when he told us that women rulers, Deborah included, are a sign of Judgement upon a rebelling people, not a sign of egalitarian progress. Margaret responded that his stance on Scripture was "questionable", and later called it narrow.  The second bone is three commentaries on Genesis, mentioned in this book, all written by evolutionists, one of whom also believes in homosexual "marriage."  I am a No Death Before Sin Six Day Creationist, a position that even skeptical Theologians agree makes the most hermeneutical sense.   Note:  One of the commentaries was written by Bruce Waltke, who has accepted evolution and who is hailed by Biologos ( an organization well known for the rejection of Scripture in the name of "science")  as "courageous"- for accepting evolution and denying the plain reading of Genesis.  Walter Brueggemann, who believes in so called homosexual marriage,  and also evolution, and is hailed as a leader in "progressive" Christianity.  The third commentary was written by Nahum Sarna, also an evolutionist.   I agree with Mr. Ham in a statement he wrote about this issue. "For Christians who believe in evolution, although it is not a salvation issue, it is an authority issue as they are undermining the authority of the Word of God."
