I checked out a stack of books from the local library by Catherine Marshall, and the first one I read was Meeting God at Every Turn. By the time I completed the book, I was absolutely in love with Catherine Marshall’s writing, and I am convinced she is Kindred Spirit!

Overall, I found Meeting God at Every Turn to be a wonderful book, full of moments that will make you laugh or cry, but most of all, filled with encouragement that you are not alone. No matter how dark or tragic your life may seem i

Very different than I expected (for some reason), but very inspiring in a way that will make you think about how you live your life and how you want to improve it. Especially in regards to relationships, especially yours with God.

Very inspiring. I liked how she searched out the truth and waited for God to answer. The story is dated, has some history with the positive thinking movement but it is clear she was walking by the Holy Spirit.

I really enjoyed this book. So many of her thoughts about Christian life matched mine. I'm just not as eloquent.
