Willing to Walk on Water by Caroline Barnett (Review)

  • Paperback: 256 pages

  • Publisher: Tyndale Momentum (April 1, 2013)

  • ISBN-13: 978-1414372297

  • You are part of the miracle God is looking for to help change the world.

    Right now—in the midst of your busy daily life—God stands ready to help you find your purpose. His hand is stretched out to you from across the water. All you need to do is be willing to take that first step out of the boat.

    In Willing to Walk on Water, Caroline Barnett reveals that God created us to be happiest when we are doing the things we care about most—when we’re using our innate talents and passions to make the lives of those around us better. Drawing on her experiences at the Dream Center—a ministry full of unlikely miracles in inner-city Los Angeles—Caroline helps you find your “trigger,” the specific need in your world you can’t stand to see unmet any longer. She’ll show you how to act with your eyes and heart open to God’s leading, and to balance your dreams of making a difference with your everyday responsibilities.

    Give God your willingness and He will give you a reignited passion for life. Take that first step toward Him; you’ll find the water beneath your feet is as firm as solid ground.

    My Review:

    I thought this was an okay book. I do not think it fulfilled the purpose listed on the description. It was more an advertisement of the successes of the Dream Center ministry. Which sounds like a great ministry don't get me wrong. It started small and grew into a large multifaceted ministry and seems blessed. I did not find my "trigger" as promised or see how anyone could using this book. I did like reading the Dream Center success stories. I also liked the stories about Caroline's life. It seemed more like a memoir. I only recommend this book to someone looking for a memoir/ministry success book.

    Caroline Barnett (Co-Pastor of The Dream Center), has played a pivotal role in program development at The Dream Center. Programs such as the Transitional Homeless Family Program, and the Foster Care Intervention program, designed to keep families together, and many more have all been created out of her desire to help families succeed. She is passionate about inspiring the women of the church to find their God-given cause to change this world with just a little bit of effort and a lot of faith; simply their willingness.
