Book Buzz: Made to Move Mountains by Kristen Welch


Life is an incredible journey, with ups and downs. We soar, struggle, scale and stumble, and often stand at the edge of cliffs, afraid to step into the unknown, unsure of where we will land. But instead of running away, we are called by God to stand firm, muster up what faith we can, and take a step because we were made to move mountains. In this inspiring book, Kristen Welch calls you to step out in faith and climb the mountain in front of you--not because you are good enough or adequate or able, but because God makes a way where there is no way. With heartbreaking and hopeful personal stories, Scripture, and questions for contemplation, she draws you out of fear and into holy confidence, showing you that the mountain in your path was put there on purpose so that you could exercise--and grow--your faith.

"Kristen is that vulnerably compassionate and fiercely courageous friend we want leading us--showing us how to be brave, how to behold with eyes of faith, and how to trust God for the impossible things he calls us to."
Ruth Chou Simons, bestselling author of Beholding and Becoming and Grace Laced
