The Big Deal of Taking Small Steps to Move Closer to God by Vashti McKenzie

The Big Deal of Taking Small Steps to Move Closer to God

My Thoughts:
This book is surely to impact your life with practical tools as you follow Christ! Bishop McKenzie isn't trying to make us change dramatically in one day like a fad diet that doesn't last long, rather she offers truths on how to make practical changes in our every day life to draw closer to God. These small changes such as sharing your testimony, being positive, identifying a regular time and place to read your Bible, mediate on scripture, create a place for worship, give your tithe, be the church and so many other great ways to grow. I love the practical application in this book, which is so simple. This book could be used as a  small group study with a group of women. It could be used as a home group study with married couples to help one another grow. I love how this book takes the word of God and then uses it to apply to everyday situations. I love the truth and application behind this book. I give this book 5/5 stars. Thank you to Faith Words for providing a complimentary copy for review purposes. A favorable review was not required.
