Finished

I’m actually pretty sad. I’ve enjoyed my time with Jeff and him sharing his experiences and what he’s learned in Divine Applause. I have pondered many of his words and the Biblical connections he makes, only they are now from God’s perspective. This book will have forever changed my relationship with my Father. Four questions?…

Plastic Donuts

So, I am nearly done with Divine Applause and I’m pretty sure my view and relationship with God will never be the same. In the second week of my review, I like to mention other books the author may have. This time, Jeff only has one other – Plastic Donuts. He does explain the title…

About Me

So, I know I have a whole page about me, but it’s such a brief little paragraph it almost doesn’t mean much at all. After all, how does anyone sum up all the days and moments in a life?  Let me tell you a bit about my experiences through the jobs I’ve had. Ready? Pizza…

Fasting and a Whopper

I cannot believe how much I am learning from my reading of Divine Applause. My focus has always been working on my role in God’s kingdom, my personal observances of the commandments, and building a bonfire testimony (I don’t want a candle that I could hide under a basket, that’s not quite enough for me)….

Disappointed

I am enjoying this book a lot, but I’m really disappointed at how fast I’m getting through it. It’s an easy read, full of Jeff’s personal stories that pertain to the subject, but it also makes the book go quickly. It’s not often that I want a book to last, but Divine Applause is just…

Take Risks

“When you step out and take risks, seeking a connection with God, rewards happen.” Jeff Anderson in Divine Applause For me, the key word is seek. God is always there, but He won’t ever force Himself on us. As part of our gift of agency, is the ability to use our will as we see…

Page 25

There is a line at the very bottom of the page that caught my attention in a big way. Jeff says, “And His heart’s desire is to reveal Himself to you in everyday life and in ordinary situations.” (Emphasis is mine)  I have some history with this concept. As a young adult, I assumed that…

The Author

  I had a couple of surprises in my inbox this morning – one, a response to a question I emailed the author, Jeff Anderson. The second was an offer by him to send two signed copies of Divine Applause for two lucky readers. Very generous of him. Today, right on schedule, this post is…

Excitement & a New Book

I have been so excited to start reading this book that I started it yesterday and picked it up every chance I had. We drove back from San Diego yesterday and if I would have taken it with me, I probably would have read it the whole way home.  Before I talk more about the…
