If you are looking for a book that jumps right into the “heart of the matter” concerning the transformation a Christian should experience when becoming serious about putting his or her faith into practice, you can’t go wrong by purchasing “Journey on the Roads Less Traveled.” Angie Lewis must have an angel helping her find the words to write, because so many times while I was reading this book – I imagine others experience the same – I said to myself, “That is exactly what I needed to hear!” This is an extremely powerful book!
When we try and create our own version of joy and contentment, we often become trapped in our own selfish perceptions of what happiness is. We rely on our own limited abilities to keep up our emotional high. Lewis challenges her readers to find and rely on the One source that can lead to more happiness and joy than we ever imagined for ourselves.
What is truly captivating about Angie’s book is that she talks about her own selfishness, pride, and life mistakes on such a personal level that I kept asking myself if I could have that kind of courage while writing a non-fiction novel.
Mrs. Lewis also offers some of the best advice, in this book and her other books, on how to maintain a joyful marriage I have ever read. When I read her advice concerning marriage, I can’t help but think of her having her own television show giving advice to couples in front of a live studio audience.
“Journey on the Roads Less Traveled” challenges us to make our faith first and foremost in our lives. Careers, homes, family, and relationships are enhanced and experienced on a whole new level when we experience them as we live under the umbrella of God’s will for our lives. God’s gifts to us should be used to give Him back the glory He rightly deserves.
Forgiveness is another main theme Angie Lewis provides her readers with. If we are not willing to truly forgive the people who have upset us, then we are limiting our ability to experience the kind of love Jesus came to teach us about 2,000 years ago.
I could write for days about how much I loved this book. But I just might give away so much of the “guts” inside that purchasing the book would be unnecessary, so I will close by saying this: If you want to purchase a book that can truly change your life, inspire your faith, or make you ponder how joyful your life can truly become, this is a book that can do just that!
See ya next review!
