About the Author:
Pastor Timothy Timberlake is the 3rd oldest child of the late Bishop Mack Timberlake, Jr. and Pastor Brenda Timberlake. He serves as Co-Pastor of Christian Faith Center. Pastor Tim is a graduate of Word of Faith Bible Training Center in Detroit, Michigan. He has a heart for people from all walks of life and a vision to see them grow through the Word of God. Everywhere he goes, he touches the hearts of people to give their lives to Jesus and reminds those who are already in Christ to confess, believe and act on the Word of God in their daily lives.

My Review:
 In the past few years my husband and I have finally accepted the call that God has placed on our lives. The transition has been long and hard, probably the hardest thing that we have ever tried to accomplish. We were actually called 10 years ago but just recently relented. Our lives during the time of rebelling were some of the worst years in our married life. We did not think we would survive, but by God's grace we did. I can tell you from personal experience, it is easier and less taxing if you just follow God and the path that He has laid out for you and your family. You don't knows how, you say?

 Here is a book that covers the basics of that intended path. You can use this book as a guidebook to getting back on track and doing it God's way. It's like I have told my daughter, sometimes your will for your life doesn't match Gods and many times this will be the case. But if you know what His will is and you have the faith to step out and do what He is asking, not only will He reward you for it, but somehow it becomes you will as well. We have an awesome God that according to Jeremiah 29:11 has our best interest at heart. He is so worth it!!

 The author knows his stuff and many of his points ring true. This book is a winner!
