The Apostle Paul offers as the key to successful Christian living the instruction “walk in the Spirit”.
That may sound simple, yet through the years I have found it requires much of us in faith, character, knowledge and determination. As both a believer and a pastor I have experienced and seen the struggle involved in such a walk. Yet it remains a great key to making our lives in Christ victorious and effective.
Alison Chant brings to her writing on this subject not only her knowledge but also her experience. She is a woman that walks in the Spirit and as such writes from the depth of one who has travelled the path.
Alison is a wife, a mother and minister of God in her own right. She brings to her subject time spent as a local church pastor’s wife, a counsellor, Bible College Dean and a leader in God’s Kingdom.
Her book is biblical, practical and proven. It is real not simply motivational. Above all it is truth for everyday life.
As you read you will be guided in this walk in the Spirit by one who has gone before and who lives in joyous fellowship of the Spirit of God.
As her pastor and friend I commend Alison for her book and for her everyday example of Walking in the Spirit.

Walking in the Spirit, in the awareness, the blessing, and the counsel of God is the desire of every earnest Christian. It was no mistake that the desert loomed large in the lives of the prophets of God, who lived for his presence. Jesus also withdrew into the desert, endured the temptations of Satan and came out again empowered by God.
