This was a wonderful book written by a woman who faced many challenges in her Christian life. One of the main things that I got from this book is that we "choose with our will" to obey the Lord. Our feelings do not need to override what we know is true. We have a choice and that choice trumps our feelings. Living in faith and trusting God is a choice we make. I would recommend this book for everyone!

This is one I go back to over and over in hard times. What an amazing testimony Ney has in so many areas of her life. It has motivated me to choose the Truth of God's Word over my feelings countless times - and will keep reminding me as I reread it!

This is an awesome book full of wonderful insight and truth. It's about learning that your emotions, while an important gift from God, must not determine what you believe about God and His unchangeable attributes. These truths have really changed my life.
Some personal stories about one woman's conflicts with how she thought she should feel versus her actual experiences. This encouraged me greatly when I read it during my summer project in Indianapolis in '02.
