Review: Everything by Mary DeMuth

SUMMARY (Amazon)

“I don’t write this book as a condemnation or as a sermon. The last thing I want to do is provide a ‘how to be the best Christian in ten easy steps’ guide. I pen these words as a fellow struggler who is learning that what we think about God matters, how we allow Him to reign in our hearts matters, and how we obey Him in the moment matters. It all matters. Everything.”

Author and speaker Mary DeMuth has been abused, foreclosed, abandoned, and betrayed. She has been pressed and drained till it was too much . . . But it was just enough to bring her to a place of surrender, piece by precious piece. In that surrender, she found the freedom of giving everything to God. And through Scripture, community, and the work of the Holy Spirit, she gives it all over again, every day.

In this gentle and challenging book, DeMuth describes the process and the nuances that shape us to be more like Christ. Her words are clear, vulnerable, and thought provoking, and every chapter is infused with Scripture.

Most of all, DeMuth provides personal and practical evidence that there is no greater pursuit than Christ. We must surrender everything, but it does not compare to the Everything He is, the Everything He gives.

This book has forever changed me. Mary DeMuth is raw, real and totally honest about her failures and how we can change to become the best we can be. This book isn't a sermon like the description says. Instead it is a step by step set up on how to evolve into the best Christian possible.

What I really enjoyed was Mary's style of writing. She's not one of those Christian authors that are 'holier than thou art', she's so surprisingly down to earth, you think you're reading something your best friend wrote.

You can tell that Mary is a passionate Christian, that her life revolves around her faith and it really shows that her main purpose is to preach her ministry to others and to show just how wonderful Jesus is and can be for the rest of us.

Everything is a great detailed account on how we can change our lives and truly live for Jesus and the way He wants us to. Mary is a talented writer and I would recommend this to all my friends!
