My Review:
 Mrs. Wulf's book is a devotional that asks you to examine each notion in your life and look for God in it. The author goes all the way back to our physical birth and reminds us that God chose "us" for the journey we were about to endure. And we need to go back and see where we came from and how far he has brought us. We all have had our share of problems in this life. We may have not had a Christian upbringing and she said for those that have you don't have half the struggle in that area that others will. So you are blessed in that respect.

 She tells us that it takes guts to set out on this type of exploration. It may feel awkward or silly. Yet new discoveries are always possible and with each turn our understanding continues to deepen and we will be drawn closer to God. Following God is NEVER a mistake. He never wants us to feel slighted by Him. I always try to look for the lesson in any type situation especially if it keeps being brought to my attention. What is God trying to show me? How can I learn from this?

 In each chapter the author has provided Bible verses, content discussion, snippets from her own quest, self evaluating questions, reflections, prayers. May this book help you on your quest to find Christ.
