Reviews - What do customers think about God Called a Girl: How Mary Changed Her World--And You Can Too?
Powerful for women of all ages Jan 15, 2007
Shannon Kubiak wrote this book with an intended audience of tweener and teenage girls. However, her lessons are more than applicable for the adult woman as well. Shannon is a wonderful storyteller and makes Biblical truths applicable to today. It is an easy read and a great book for young women who are looking to pursue God.
A wonderful book! Mar 8, 2006
Every time I pick up this book, I feel a call to pursue the God who gave everything for me.
Shannon Kubiak presents us with an awesome challenge: to answer our God with a "yes" - a "yes" that will change the world. We live in a world that needs to be touched by God, but so often we act like we have nothing to offer. Kubiak calls us to live like the princesses we are.
God has gifted each of us and has an incredible plan for our lives. This book will draw you closer to the One who has called you and placed His blessing upon you.
A Book to read! May 31, 2005
Shannon Kubiak, author of God Called a Girl tells us that her book is not about Mary as much as it is about God and what God did with one willing teenager committed to Him. And it is about what He can do with all teenagers that are committed to Him and to being world changers.
Kubiak sees life as a God adventure. God knows our gifts and passions and purpose and challenges us to use them for His glory. She recognizes that our struggles with God and His purpose for us are all too often about us wanting to control. We so often believe that we know best, or that trusting God is too frightening.
Kubiak clarifies her statements with personal stories that are wonderful metaphors. She also provides a message that will help women be another girl that God calls.
This is a wonderful, thoughtful book for young women to read, ponder and then plan what they are going to do as world changers. But it is also a wonderful read for all of us because God is calling us all. So if you're an adult giving this book to an important young woman in your life, I would suggest that you read it too. It will spur you on to challenging yourself to think about and plan your commitment to impacting your sphere of influence.
