Publishers Description "Child of God, you are going to love this book You'll find yourself nodding, underlining, and shouting 'Amen ' all the way through. "How to Be Blessed and Highly Favored" is full of God's unchanging truth and Michelle's real-world wisdom, wrapped around the story of one of the 'good girls' of the Bible: Mary, the mother of Jesus. Trust me...you will be blessed " "-Liz Curtis Higgs, best-selling author of Bad Girls of the Bible " Prepare to crawl into God's lap and experience His highest blessings as your own. A popular phrase often heard after inquiring about someone's welfare is the enthusiastic response, "Blessed and highly favored " Yet many of us-even those who use this expression readily-don't really lead a lifestyle that reflects God's blessings. It's not that such blessings aren't ours to receive; the Bible clearly teaches that it is the Father' s perfect will to give us the kingdom. The problem is that we don't know how to fully access His generous gifts. What does God require of those He chooses to use and bless? Join Michelle McKinney Hammond as she takes a fresh, spirited look at Mary, the mother of Jesus, and shows us how to: - appeal to God's heart - remain sensitive to His voice - believe Him for the impossible - submit to and rest in His plan - live before Him with a servant's heart Get Ready to Receive God's Extra-Dimensional Blessings

Reviews - What do customers think about How To Be Blessed And Highly Favored?
A book to live by Jul 28, 2007
Another excellent work. This book is for all to read, learn and live by. I bought this with the intention to read and the pass on to others, however, having read it, that has changed. I am keeping my highlighted copy..and buying another copy to pass on. The thing we should do most often, but actually seem to do least is to look within ourselves and be painfully honest in dissecting our heart & mindset. This book is full of material that is provoking us to look within, to see how deeply we are seeking God & his will. I cant say enough of how great this book is.
Hallelujah...finally!!!! Jan 26, 2006
This book is awesome. Michelle starts right off telling it like it is. She does not sugarcoat or tap dance around the fact that in order to truely be blessed in the things of God, that you must first...SEEK GOD. So many preachers, teachers, and the like are telling the body of Christ to come get your stuff, but not telling the body of Christ that there are some rules and regulations along with it. The Word of God says...Seek ye first the kingdom of God and all these things shall be added. Somehow we have gotten away from that. God bless you Michelle for bringing us back to what God had mandated it to be. To God be the Glory.
Not only for women Jan 10, 2006
Men of god, especially pastors can be changed by the reading of this book. Anyone for that matter!! But men of color usually find it offensive or insulted because of ego (a deadly sin) to listen to a woman or even pick up a book (and it's written by a woman, bro please). If you thinking like that, let me assure you, this woman is a mighty servant of God. One God has blessed with great wisdom and knowledge and I encourage you to open up this book. Hear "what thus say the lord", learn not to be "double-minded" and NOT "lukewarm". Be a servant for God and be selfless and obeident instead of being selfish and self-rightous..... just like mary. Great book and thank you, Michelle.(Lord, send me a wife like this to make)
Puts the focus onto serving God Oct 13, 2004
I enjoyed this book so much that I finished it within 3 evenings. Ms. McKinney-Hammond really helps the reader put the focus back onto becoming a willing servant of God and putting His will before anything else. I'm so glad I bought this book.
