Review of WHAT KEEPS YOU UP AT NIGHT? by Pete Wilson

Life is stressful, especially if you're trying to figure out exactly what you're supposed to be doing with your life. Many people are overcome with doubt and uncertainty, and they wonder if there is any way to make living by faith easier.

Pete Wilson's new book What Keeps You Up at Night? tackles these problems head on from the perspective of one who lives by faith and finds comfort in relationship with Jesus. Wilson's book acknowledges uncertainty as a reality all people have to face, even people of faith. In fact, we often don't see clearly ahead of us. It isn't until after an event or series of events that we see where God was working. In the midst of uncertainty, we're challenged to trust in God. That's what Jesus did and that's what we're called to do. Our situations may change, but God doesn't, and chasing after the dreams God has placed inside us requires a great deal of faith in God's provision, promises, and power.

What keeps you up at night? While uncertainty may be a staple of your journey, it doesn't have to be debilitating. We can find strength and courage as we pursue the heart of Jesus. Pete Wilson's writing is warm and refreshing, and his message is important for those who struggle with stress in their pursuit of living.

Review of THE REASON FOR MY HOPE by Billy Graham

Billy Graham has been preaching the message of Jesus since long before I was born, so when I was growing up in a Christian home, I knew Billy Graham as someone who had been responsible for inspiring more people to follow Jesus than anyone else in history. Throughout the years, though Graham has gotten older and less able to be in front of large crowds, he's still someone many people respect and seek answers to life's most difficult questions from.

The Reason for My Hope is a clear explanation of the message of Jesus by a man who has lived it and seen it lived out by countless people. I personally loved the focus on hope specifically throughout the book because Graham presents Jesus as the only true hope the world has. Reading the book, you can hear his voice and it's almost as if you're listening to one of his Crusades.

Billy Graham loves Jesus and he's committed to his message. The Reason for My Hope is a clear call to have hope in Jesus.
