Jesus and the Beanstalk: Overcoming Your Giants and Living a Fruitful Life
(Abingdon Press, September 2016)
What if a fairy tale and ten Bible verses could free you to live an effective, fruitful life in Christ?
We live in unsettling, challenging times. Everywhere we look, we see
giant problems: giant obstacles to sharing faith, giant barriers to
peaceful lives, giant strongholds of fear. But what if you knew eight
small secrets to unlocking a strength big enough to overcome whatever
obstacle life may bring?
Using allegory and a bit of humor, Jesus and the Beanstalk explores a
passage in 2 Peter 1 to uncover eight truths that will help you unleash
a larger-than-life faith:
—Affection for others
In this creative, refreshing perspective on spiritual growth, you
will discover an unyielding strength when you tap the power of a God who
is stronger than any beanstalk and bigger than your biggest giants.
Oh, what a powerful book resource Lori's book Jesus and the Beanstalk
is. This book came at the most needed time in my life. It was a time when I was faced with one of life's giants. It helped strengthen my faith, helping me persevere when I just wanted to crawl into a hole and give up as well as showed me how to show affection to others at a time that was hard to do so. The small steps to slaying the giants were excellent, practical and exactly what I needed at the time. Easy to use for reflection and enhanced the text greatly. The questions were very thought provoking. Many books that I've read with questions at the end of each chapter didn't seem to move me to action, but Roeleveld's questions caused me to take notice and do. Jesus and the Beanstalk teaches and inspires the reader.
