Born to Soar: Unleashing God's Word in Your Life
Customer ReviewsWrite a review
I was previewing this book for our Ladies CRHP Team. The theme of our retreat was "God's Well-Watered Garden," and what better way of continuing that theme than pollinating God's garden of grace through Scripture, Prayer and the beauty of the Monarch. I appreciated the science lesson, the beautiful way Scripture just fit in to the theme of each chapter, the time and space to ponder and pray. Needless to say, our CRHP Team will be delving into "Born to Soar" this fall. Elaine Goc, Spiritual Director CRHP Team 41, St. John Neumann Parish, St. Charles, IL
This book took me by surprise. I expected something soft and comfortable, but it is all about growth and stretching into your wings. We’ve heard analogies about how we should “soar” in our Faith or “fly to the Heavens.” Usually such analogies are very bird-related and concern species like eagles and doves. It was very interesting to read through this guided journal book that is patterned around the life cycle and habits of the beautiful, intricate, delicate, fragile monarch butterfly, with whom we have more in common than you might think. Author Melissa Overymyer does a great job of turning hearts towards Heaven. This would make a great gift for anyone who is just embarking on their Faith journey and looking for next steps. Or it would be a great book for those wishing to integrate journaling into their prayer life, and for anyone who wants to deepen their relationship with Christ. Those grieving a loss or going through a life change will find comfort in this simple, yet beautiful and rich six week process. The book will guide you through fruitful meditations, prayers, rich poetry, and many strong Scripture verses. Ample space is provided for recording your own thoughts and reflections to each writing prompt given. It's broken into six sessions, full of information & discussion questions to ponder throughout a full six weeks. Get ready to take your prayer life to a new “cocoon” level of comfort, as you soar to peaceful prayer time with this book and guided journal.
Melissa Overmyer shares so many uplifting and inspiring scripture verses in Born to Soar: Unleashing God's Word in Your Life. You can not help but feel His presence grow with every day's scripture reading and reflection questions. It is the intimate connection that develops as we learn how much God loves us and the care He took in our creation. The butterfly analogy is kinda mind-blowing; Melissa did a fantastic job weaving that theme throughout especially with the fabulous butterfly facts! Born to Soar will is like a mini-retreat that is guaranteed to grow your heart for Christ and strengthen or deepen your faith. In His Word, you will see, if you spend even a small amount of time with it, begins to speak LOUDLY to you in ways you can not even begin to imagine. Born to Soar is very well done!
