God’s Will, Fleshed Out, in My Life
By: Laverne Middleton
About the Book
God’s Will, Fleshed Out, in My Life observes the spiritual journey of LaVerne Middleton, from an infant who was addicted to drugs from her mother’s womb to a teenager who overcame suicide. Growing up as a Christian, she often heard the same things at church: “God will remove all your sins when you receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior,” “life itself gets better,” or if you are sick and you have been praying for healing, and your healing has not come, some Christians would say, “Your faith is not strong enough to please God.”
Middleton addresses questionable teachings such as these and gets at the root of Christianity and how God is faithful even throughout the highs and lows of our spiritual journeys. She wants to encourage readers to trust God and wait on the Holy Spirit.
