Review by: Adrienna D Turner on March 4, 2018 :
Wendy Halloun shares from her life experiences and main intent is for the reader to identify who they are in Christ. Many of us struggle with identity issues and self-esteem, or discovering who we are as a whole; yet, the author clearly asks the reader to examine themselves and judge their own heart in which I would say “see your potential in Christ” and only volunteer you not anyone else. Moreover, she tells us to awaken your identity, find your calling, know your purpose, and walk into your destiny.

Mrs. Halloun has four sections in the book. One section is the journey (you), second section is the King (Jesus), third section is the Kingdom (Heaven), and fourth section is Paths. As the reader, I have to discover who I am and what journey I will be taking of which I think of Abraham when he had to leave the land of familiarity and idol-worshipping to go to an unknown place that God will supply and meet all his needs. Then, we have to know our Creator, our Savior Jesus Christ, and be in His likeness and His image. Next, there is a place for us (believers) who follow Christ, a Heavenly Kingdom, is where we will live for all eternity and saves our treasures there. Lastly, we will either choose the narrow or the wide path as the Bible speaks about symbolically and metaphorically but there is only one road or path we’ll take when it is all said and done. This is my hopes of how the author will delve in this book and I will see where this reading journey of enlightenment and encouragement of being a follower of Jesus Christ will take me on this spiritual exploration.

Review by: Luke J. Wilson on March 4, 2018 :
This book isn't necessarily one I would pick up to read normally, but I don't mind reading things that are different for me at times because you never know what you'll find!

This book begins with a couple short chapters inducing the purpose of the book and the intent behind it: to find your own identity in Christ and what that means. I think that's something we all could do with thinking about properly. The author then goes on to give a little background on herself, her own mixed cultural marriage and her own struggles with identity within all of that, which is how and why she came to write this book.

The following chapters go through various aspects of the nature and character of God and his he and we relate to one another. Each chapter is filled with scriptural references and ends with some bullet point questions to make you think about what you just read so that you can digest your thoughts and try to put things into practice.

It's not my usual type of book that I would read, but overall I enjoyed it and would likely recommend it to others who were in need of something like this. It's well written and easy to follow and could be useful for new and old Christians alike, or to be followed along as part of a study group.
