Publishers Description Terry Meeuwsen, cohost of "The 700 Club" and "Living the""Life, " issues a challenge to believers everywhere to exchange their safe, status quo existence for the eternal impact of a lifelong "God adventure." This book was born out of an unexpected detour late in Meeuwsen's life that led her and her husband to adopt three sisters from the Ukraine. A testimony to God's provision and faithfulness, hers is an adoption story reminiscent of God's choosing us to be a part of His family and extending the invitation to join Him in unexpected, uncertain, unpredictable God adventures. But this is much more than one family's story. It is the call of God to His people--to set aside our plans, sacrifice our comforts, share our blessings, and walk where the path is not always clear. God Wants You Out of Control When God says, "Follow Me," He doesn't usually provide a road map. And that's the beauty of "The God Adventure. " It's an open invitation to a lifetime off the beaten path. Terry Meeuwsen, cohost of "The 700 Club," beckons the tentative to experience the thrill of saying yes to God and "So long " to their comfort zones. For Terry and her husband, in their fifties, living the God adventure would mean adopting three Ukrainian sisters--in addition to the four children they already had But the Meeuwsens have never regretted telling the Lord they would be "risk-takers" for Him. And you won't, either. So say goodbye to the familiar rut. Set aside your plans. Beautiful surprises abound when you embark on the God adventure "" Inspiration/Motivation/General ISBN 1-59052-250-8 Story Behind the Book Terry Meeuwsen is one of America's most successful Christian broadcasters--known and loved by many who watch her every day on CBN's The 700 Club. With her husband, Andy Friedrich, she was already a busy 50-something mother of four when she sensed the Lord calling her--quietly but insistently--into a stunning God adventure: to open her heart and her home to three orphaned Ukrainian sisters she had never met. Through daily steps of faith and surrender, what seemed impossible became a reality. Now the Friedrich children number seven. And at every turn, Terry sees more evidence that the extraordinary life God wants for each of us is always only one step away.

A God Adventure Apr 23, 2005
In The God Adventure, author Terry Meeuwsen (co-host of The 700 Club and Living the Life) invites readers to embark on an adventure of faith. And in embracing this faith adventure, Meeuwsen says we can live God's purpose for each of us.
Meeuwsen shares her personal story, her unique struggles and successes, her God adventure, in this practical, thought-provoking book.
When God wants something done, He looks for men and women to take the assignment; much like the old television program, Mission Impossible. "Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is ...." We are offered the opportunities; we just need to decide if we're going to accept His assignment. If we don't, someone will. But we'll never know what we've missed! It is an act of faith and not without risk-taking to follow God. But Meeuwsen believes that when we put our own plans on hold, wonderful surprises will occur. She calls it a God adventure.
This was a timely book for me as I've been on my own "wilderness journey." I was able to look back on my own life and clearly see where I stepped out in faith and where I hesitated. After reviewing those experiences, it is clear to me that taking the risks, believing that God knows what is best for me and will do His best by me, has been, by far, the best part of my journey.
After reading this book, I can name and claim my experiences as my very own God adventure.
