Call of A Coward The God of Moses and the Middle-Class Housewife By Marcia Moston

Book Description The problem with promising God you'll follow Him wherever He leads you is that you just might have to go. When her husband returned from a church mission trip and disrupted her tidy, middle-class afternoon with the conviction they should pack up and move to a Mayan village in Guatemala, Marcia Moston had to wonder: faithful or foolish? On a journey that leads from the highlands of Guatemala to a small Vermont village, Marcia follows God's call for her husband even though it seems to conflict with her own dreams, requires credentials she lacks, and demands courage she doesn't feel she has. Written with humor and insight, Call of a Coward is a candid account of a modern-day seeker and a very real God who makes cowards courageous, ordinary lives purposeful, and dried-up dreams fruitful. My Thoughts: A gem of a book. One that should not be overlooked by anyone. Incredibly eye opening and moving beyond words. It describes how anyone (even a lowly housewife) can make an incredible difference or have life changing events happen. I adore the heart in this book, the mission and most of all the journey. After all, that's what it is about, isn't it? The journey. **Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program.
