I Want It All: Exchanging Your Average Life for Deeper Faith, Greater Power, and More by Gwen Smith

From the Publisher. 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.

Worth Getting in Bed For? No. Unfortunately for me, this was a miss. While it is always helpful to read about someone’s trials and how their faith gets them through as a refresher, this wasn’t anything new. A refresher, yes– fresh, no. Smith has her anecdotes and her scriptures but I never felt connected to the material. That isn’t to say other readers won’t find her material inspiring or appealing. It just didn’t lift me. And that’s okay. I still thought about her mission and problems and that might be all I needed from this book.
