Choosing Him All Over Again

I loved reading Juana's story.

And when I was asked to be a part of her blog tour for her new book, I was very excited!

It's a beautiful story of redemption and the changes God makes in the lives of His children.

Juana was only married a few years when she decided she wanted to leave her husband...she felt he wasn't fulfilling her needs.

This is her story, a story of how God not only brought her to Himself, but how He restored her marriage and revealed to her that only He can be everything to her.

I loved the way Juana glorified the Lord on every page, and shared Scripture throughout. She also shares many wonderful and wise quotes by godly men and women to encourage the reader.

Juana's words from chapter five nicely summed up the theme within this book for me...

"...our part is to trust, and God's part is to work. There is much work to be done! Wrong attitudes need to be changed, evil habits need to be overcome, sins need to be conquered, minds need to be transformed - and as we trust Him, God accomplishes these results."

When we simply trust in Christ the Holy Spirit does the work in us.

I love that.

Trust Him in your marriage. You will see a change, even if ever so slowly.

I highly recommend Juana's story.

More about the Book:

A handsome husband, a dream job, and plenty of money- so why wasn't Juana Mikels happy? In a desperate attempt to find the peace and happiness she craved Mikels left it all behind. In Choosing Him All Over Again: A Story of Romance & Redemption, Mikels offers an intimate account of her search for Mr. Right, a journey that ended up leading her into the arms of Jesus, and ultimately back home to her husband. 

Mikels not only includes a candid recount of her own marriage struggles in Choosing Him All Over Again, but she interviewed more than 40 people, all of whom had been separated or divorced at one time. "It is my prayer that you will be encouraged and able to love your husband and to choose him again," writes Mikels. "It is my delight to share my history with you because my story is a story of God's grace." 

Choosing Him All Over Again includes strikingly honest accounts of Mikels' personal experience of separation from her husband and their ultimate reconciliation. Mikels offers wives 11 checkpoints for refreshing any marriage including saying 'I love you' daily, not bringing up past failures and praying for your husband every day. The book provides free resources like prayers Mikels prays for her husband, a note to Christian women married to unbelievers or married to Christian men who are not acting as believers should and access to a FREE downloadable companion Bible study guide.
