Be Still, and Let God Calm The Storms! Apr 2, 2007
Cherie Hill's book, "Be Still" is a wonderfully written book that made me reflect on my own life, and realize how much I truly need God. After reading Cherie's book I discovered that I have not allowed God to work His will in my own life. How could I have allowed this to happen? I guess I have taken God for granted.
About half way through the book it hit me hard - Bang! Like a freight train derailing off the tracks, screeching to a roaring stop. I had been ignoring God for my life because I knew He would always be there for me. It's like living smack dab on the ocean with a view most people would die for. After ten or twenty years of waking up and your eyes seeing that magnificent coastline, it just doesn't seem that spectacular anymore. It's just the beach for those who live there, but for those who don't live there, it's a vacation!
Cherie said it so well. We are powerless to calm our own storms ourselves. We need Jesus! Sure, we can dampen the storms under our own understanding, but is that what God wants His children to do? It is all about having faith enough to let God deal with the trials and tribulations in our life. Let Christ calm your storms.
If you are going through a storm in your life, this book is a must read! If you're not going through a storm in your life, this book is a must read for future reference. It offers excellent scripture based material as well as encouragement and hope. I recommend this book for Christian's of all ages and those who are seeking truth, wisdom and solace for their life.
6 Stars in My Book! Anyone Going Through Hard Times Needs This Amazing Book! Mar 12, 2007
For anyone thinking about purchasing Cherie Hill's book, "Be Still", let me just say this: Don't hesitate!
This book has been such a blessing. Storms come in all shapes and sizes, but God and His infinite wisdom and power reigns supreme over all storms. Cherie manages to organize one of the best manuscripts concerning the need for God's children to trust that their Heavenly Father is indeed interested, concerned, and intervening in their lives on a daily basis.
"Be Still - Let Jesus Calm Your Storms" combines intellectual common sense, Biblical truths, Biblical scriptures, and an author dedicated to helping people who have suffering in their lives.
I have to admit that I did not have the firm grasp that I thought did around the "Jesus Calms the Storm" story found in the Bible ( see Luke 8:22-25), but Cherie Hill has opened my eyes a bit wider. Her ability to seek out scriptural truths and combine them with earthly situations and solutions is uncanny. God has truly blessed this woman with a special talent for this type of ministry.
So if you've experienced trails, tribulations and storms in your life, this is a book you will want to take a look at. If you are currently going through a struggle, a test, or a storm, this is a book you should own. And if you are sure there is bound to be heartache, pain, or a storm in your future, this book can definitely help you through it.
"Be Still - Let Jesus Calm Your Storms" is an amazing addition to any bookshelf. Buy a copy for yourself, buy a copy for a friend, or leave a copy somewhere for a stranger.
See ya next review!

Remember That Jesus Is in the Boat with You When Storms Arise! Jan 29, 2007
One of the pleasures of listening to a good sermon is to hear one of the Bible's great stories explained in many dimensions and then applied to good rules for daily living. Ms. Hill has the talent to create such a sermon, and your understanding of how Jesus calmed the storm (Matthew 8:23-27, Mark 4:35-40 and Luke 8:22-25) will be expanded by reading this book to build your relationship with Jesus.
If you don't remember or know the story, let me summarize it for you. Jesus was crossing the Sea of Galilee by boat with His disciples, several of whom were experienced fishermen. While Jesus slept, a storm rose up and the disciples feared for their lives as the boat filled with water. They awakened Jesus in fear, and He calmed the winds and turbulent water. This demonstration of His power helped them to understand who He was. "Who is this man, that even the winds and waves obey him?" (Luke 8:25 NLT)
Ms. Hill points out that our lives, too, will experience storms. But like this story, Jesus is at our side. We have only to turn to Him in faith and the storms will have no effect. Why do we experience storms? Ms. Hill wisely points out that storms are there to help us build our faith. When we listen in faith, we will hear Jesus and appreciate His peace. With faith, we can banish the storms in Jesus' name.
The book nicely bridges the gap between those who doubt God because there are storms and the true lessons to be drawn from those storms.
Ms. Hill is well acquainted with Scripture and quotes often from the relevant texts. Each chapter ends with verses to build your faith in the right way. If you are interested in learning more about the Bible, Ms. Hill offers an Internet-based ministry at her website which is referred to in this book.
One of the best parts of this book is the way she explores creating both inner and outer peace. Many people are more troubled in their minds than they are in reality. This book can help.
Inspiring Hope for Troubled Times Nov 26, 2006
"The peace that surpasses all understanding is a gift from God and is ours for the taking. Yet we must pursue it. He wants us to find comfort in knowing that, if we allow Him, He will help us rise above our storms." ~ Cherie Hill
Cherie Hill longed for a deeper relationship with her creator and in a time of conflict, asked God to heal her life. The way this was accomplished was through giving others the gift of an open heart who listened and cared and reached out to help them in their greatest time of need.
After designing a website as a place of prayer, people opened their hearts to his safe place within a world of storms and through an outpouring of love, lives were changed and souls were nurtured with renewed hope and faith. Her book teaches you how to:
Understand that God is still in control Learn to seek the purpose of the conflict Find peace by developing a sense of patience Develop the ability to overcome the storm so you can take on new challenges
Cherie Hill has a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and is pursuing a Certificate in Biblical Counseling, but her greatest accomplishment is making a difference in the lives of people who are in need of human caring, a few warm words of encouragement and an open heart. She is now a regular guest on talk radio speaking about issues like "The Transformative Power of Truth" and is also a columnist for online magazines.
As someone who has gone through many awakening moments in one short lifetime, I can say that without people like Cherie Hill, I wouldn't even be writing this review. All of us have gone through dark stormy times that have threatened to take us under emotionally and financially. We can at times think we are alone in a storm, but God will send peace and then give us the strength to go on to pass along God's love to the world.
"Unfortunately, it usually takes a raging storm to restore and reveal what is really important in life and get us back in line with what God's will is for our lives." ~Cherie Hill
I can highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a fulfilling life purpose or wants to read about how the person living next door is changing the world for good! Sometimes the best thing you can do when you are in need, is to reach out to someone else and heal yourself through the gift of giving yourself even when you are the one in need.
As we all take turns being the one in need and the angel helping those in need, this book brings comfort to us all through a variety of scripture passages and Cherie Hill's innate wisdom brought forth from her own life experience. Be Still is the comforting book you have been looking for, to give to a friend or to read to nurture your own soul.
"God uses our storms to prepare us for the incredible blessings that he has planned for us. Each storm will bring with it a new way for us to shed our worldly nature and prove our faith to God." ~ Cherie Hill
