Endorsements of Exodus of Our Lives-Finding Your Promised Land:

“I’ve never liked driving to new places. I have the worst sense of direction. Even the thought of getting lost causes a sense of panic. Some time ago I started out on a new journey in life, a faith journey. I had that same sense of panic, as if I might get lost on the journey, which at times seemed unfamiliar and terrifying.

As I read Exodus of Our Lives I began to understand that I wouldn’t find these journeys in my life so frightening if I just prepared for them.

I began to look inward asking myself, “Am I really applying God’s word to my life or am I just reading and hearing his word on a surface level?”

As I read these pages, I began to discover the heart of Jesus. As I dug deeper into Exodus of Our Lives I realized I could do better if I began applying the wisdom Jesus shared through the Beatitudes to my own life.

I began to truly mourn the sin in my life and made the decision to be baptized. I was struggling with issues at work and started to see I often reacted poorly. Before this, I never even recognized when my reactions made things worse. As I continued reading Exodus of Our Lives, I read; “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.” I applied this Beatitude to my situations and, what do you know, things started getting better at work!

I also asked myself, “Am I striving to do the right thing when handling situations and making decisions in my life? I really didn’t like the answer I found deep inside of myself! I realized I had been making many decisions and seeking answers that I thought benefitted me.

I read and reread, “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.” Now, when the need to make a decision or deal with a situation arises, I immediately ask myself, “What is the right thing to do in God’s eyes?” I often find the right thing to do is not the easy thing to do, but it is the best thing to do. The results are always worth the effort.

Exodus of Our Lives is now an invaluable tool in helping to navigate the journeys in my life and I know it will be for you as well. I am finding my promised land. You can too!”
