I enjoyed this book. Each chapter was small, stuck to the topic with a short relative anecdote and then followed by two very thoughtful questions that makes one think about how the chapter would actually apply to their own life. The writing was clear, concise, and thoughtful. We all have holes in our lives whether they are the result of human interaction or our own flights of fantasy. When we come across one of those holes Jesus is there to help us delve into them, get to the bottom of them, hea...more
Continuing on with my audiobook collection in the car tactic, I picked up Whole: An Honest Look at the Holes in Your Life and How to Let God Fill Them by Lisa Whittle from Family Christian because it 1.) intrigued me and 2.) was on sale at 50% off. Coming off of Prototype: What Happens When You Discover You're More Like Jesus Than You Think? by Jonathan Martin, I was on a high for Jesus Christ though I am always on cloud nine for my Lord and Savior. Hoping to continue the happiness and understan...more
{W}hole by Lisa Whittle is about how our life experiences, whether good or bad, can leave holes in us. These holes effect how we see ourselves, others and God. Lisa Whittle shares her personal testimony (and holes) throughout this honest and revelatory book. She states, that our experiences and/or roles don't define us. But it's about allowing Jesus Christ to fill our holes, by making us "whole" and thereby re-writing our story.

This book is jam packed full of incredible insights which made me t...more

The holes in your life can ultimately be what make you WHOLE. Very thought provoking. Lisa Whittle shares her heart and life to illustrate the truth that although we will have challenges, things that shake our beliefs and life in general, that God still wants us to be whole. Our experiences can be just that - experiences. Not the sole definer of all that He has made us to be and the end of our story.

She is very transparent in her story (it seems she holds nothing back!) and I admire her for that...more

Have that feeling that something is missing? Feel like something is holding you from from life? relationships? a job? school? anything? Lisa Whittle has brought it all out into the open. Our lives are filled with holes, and often times we let those holes hold us back, we let them control who we are and the decisions we are making. Now what if those holes in our life are the things that will in the end make us whole?

Through Whole, Whittle shares her experiences of finding the holes in life and...more

This is a book with more than just a cute title making a play on the words whole and hole, it is a book about giving God your pain to fill.

The author, Lisa Whittle, writes from experience. She grew up in the role of a pastor's daughter. She found comfort in this role and knew how to work it so she would be admired. That is, until someone saw through her facade at church camp and called her on it. She was upset, but realized that man was right, she wasn't what she appeared to be. Later, her fathe...more
Everyone has holes in their life, created by the roles we fill, the circumstances and experiences of life. Lisa Whittle shares her experience with life events that were less than fulfilling and created emptiness. And she shares ways, through a relationship with Christ, those holes can be made whole.

The book was a little slow to start, and I was confused by its message in the opening chapters. Whittle kept alluding to something that happened to her to create holes in her life, but it seemed like...more

Why haven't more people read this book? It is a keeper! Powerful and needed. It made quite an impact on me.

Sometimes there are books that you read that make an impact from the start. From the moment you read the introduction (yes, you should read the intro), to the final turn of the last page, you are captivated. {W}hole by Lisa Whittle is one such book that you will not be able to put down. It is a challenging, thought-provoking book that will have you asking yourself the question, "Am I whole?...more
