Blurb:
 
God created you for exceptional impact. Exceptional power. And exceptional blessings.

Gwen Smith knows how easy it is to dismiss God’s plans with the thoughts, I can’t make a big difference for God because I’m just an ordinary woman with an ordinary life. Yet God created us to join Him in doing amazing work in the world. He created us to live with abundant joy, courage, and influence. But not the joy, courage, and influence of the world. He offers His grace for each failure, His love that shatters hate, His peace that soothes the turmoil, His comfort, guidance, wisdom, rest, power, and significance. Every blessing He has for us is ours for the taking.

I Want It All will ignite a fire in your heart to experience more faith, more power, and more impact. More of Jesus. All of Jesus. Everything that God has for you.
     
 

My Thoughts:
 
I went through a non-fiction kick a while back but lately I've read almost exclusively fiction.  So, this is the first non-fiction book I've read in quite some time.
 
I went into it expecting great things.  After all, I want it all, too!
 
This book had be delving deep into my myself.  It had me seeking and searching my heart.
 
The author uses many scriptures and even goes to the Greek words, which I LOVE!  It shows the time and study that went into the writing of this book.
 
The author also uses fun acrostics such as KNEEEL and KUT.
 
I've been struggling with making a decision and I can honestly say that this book has made me see things a bit clearer and has helped me on my way to the decision I believe God is asking me to make.
 
Great book!  I look forward to reading more from this author :)
 
(And she's from Pittsburgh!  Which makes her "almost" a hometown girl to me :)
