Written with wisdom and passion... May 4, 2008
Written with wisdom and passion... [...] Linda Hiles begins her book, Arise, O Sleeper, by explaining that God has a purpose for each of us. He knew us before we were born. In the foreword, Hiles speaks of the emptiness she felt. She knew there was something missing in her life. When she fully turned her life over to God and made Him the center of her being, she felt complete. Hiles challenges readers to "wake up," to allow Christ to shine through our lives. Arise, O Sleeper is written in a simple easy-to-understand style. Her wisdom and passion shines through her prose. This book would make a great Christian book study. This is not a quick read; you will want to ponder. I highly recommend Arise, O Sleeper.

And know that God has a plan for you and that you NEED to listen to him...my mom did and with God's helping hand she wrote a book. So, Arise O'Sleeper!
A Warm and Devoted Tribute to God Jan 12, 2008
Linda Hiles writes a warm and devoted tribute to God in Arise, O Sleeper. With trust in God and belief in his Son Jesus, eternal life will follow. She has a firm belief in faith. She carefully chooses her words as she gives her interpretation of selected quotes from Bible scripture. Linda Hiles is a gentle soul, spreading the messages she receives from God.
Every reader will find passages in which they can relate. It's apparent that Linda Hiles has had a painful past, but she emerges from it like a rising phoenix with strong words, reminding us of the imposters that hide in churches and warning us to be aware of their existence. She follows with a suggestion to "put on the full armor of God" to stand up against the evil lurking in unexpected places and to not be taken in by "false prophets." Her experiences have taught her that only God has earned her trust. When she trusts in Him, she can't go wrong.
This is a book to read over a period of time. There's so much information that it's impossible to completely understand through a quick read. But once the reader comes back, say in a troubled time in life, the messages may all be seen in a different light. It's a soothing read yet conveys powerful revelations. Arise, O Sleeper, is a book to have on hand when in need of inspiration and loving words. Linda Hiles genuinely feels every word that she writes, sending impassioned tidings to all. It's a book for every household--a companion to the Bible.
We all have a purpose in life, and Linda Hiles was meant to write this book. The writing is pure and comes from the heart--a heart that truly loves the Lord and wishes to share that pure love with the reader. Arise, O Sleeper says it all.
Arise, O Sleeper Jan 12, 2008
Jacksonville, FL - Newly published local author Linda Hiles - writes without regard for a person's status, race or gender in "Arise, O Sleeper". Coming to us, just in time, as an encouraging format for openly rebuking the heart of God's people.
God's heart has been believed to be that of a `Great Love' that simply gives to those that seek, and although this is completely true, it does not speak of his entire nature. For there are many facets of God's character. It is here that she found herself leaning on God's wisdom to survive in a world that only dictates cruelty at best.
Through faith we were led into the family of God, becoming his royal priesthood, his chosen vessels, members of his righteousness. Yet, during a seemingly long wait we forget the love that he once lavished on us and put away what we first believed. Here we found ourselves turning from God's best, feeling forsaken and all alone, struggling against the hard places, allowing the evil things of this world to draw us back into the darkness that once held us bound.
Read as encouragement from God's lips, "Arise, O Sleeper" carefully creates an atmosphere for desire to become the very person God birthed us to be. Through it's pages we are reminded that our involvement in God's plan is more than just a position, but a calling.
We are taught through God's written heart to remain teachable, to rely on God's Spirit and to trust in his love. If we render a thankful heart and reside in hope, his peace will surely find us.
It is her hope that you will acknowledge what is being said within the 228 pages of "Arise, O Sleeper" as both inspiring, uplifting and powerfully truthful.
