When We Were on Fire by Addie Zierman

I was in awe as I began to read this book. It could have been one of my own children writing it! I say this due to how the author was raised in an Evangelical background and all the things she did. All the things my own children did! So let's just say that I could relate to it. It was good for me to take a look back at all of this through her eyes and to see things in a new perspective. It also made me think of how I was raised as a Catholic before the Lord drew me out of there and into a newly planted Evangelical church. It was a good beginning of learning to be in the Word and to witness to evangelize. I am so glad to have had these teachings! It was also a great place for our children to be with other believers and to thrive in such an environment. I was saddened then when, due to certain circumstances within this church...we had to leave. I was in deep mourning when it happened until the Lord told me that He would continue teaching me no matter where it was we went! That was such a relief!It is so good to look back in your walk with the Lord and see how far you've come and how much of it has been THE LORD's doings! Funny how you find out later it was all HIM! I don't want to go into all the details of this book as don't want to spoil it for you...the reader. But will say I do recommend this book to you! It will take you on a journey to your past especially if you had been or are an Evangelical Christian and will encourage you for how far you have come and for where the Lord is currently taking you! Be encouraged and stay strong in the Lord!!! I received this book for free from Convergent Publishing through the book review program. I was not required to write a favorable review.
