Book Review: Leaving Ordinary


(Encounter God through Extraordinary Prayer )
By Donna Gaines

Mrs. Gaines gives us a bird’s eye view of the tabernacle of God. She explains how each of its furnishings points to Jesus. God dictated how each of the pieces was to be created, including dimensions of each piece.

After Mrs. Gaines takes us through the tabernacle once and explains each piece, she bids us to revisit the tabernacle and consciously “. . . use each piece to remind and inspire us as we minister to the Lord in prayer”1

At the end of each chapter in the third section of this book she has included prayer testimonies of women with whom she has a personal friendship who are also prayer warriors. 
I would recommend this book to any woman who wanted to grow in her knowledge of God. However, I have once concern. The price of the book might preclude a lot of women from being able to afford it.

The only concern is the price of the book. A lot of women cannot afford to pay the price on the ISBN label. 

I received a copy of this book from Booklook Bloggers, a program of Harper Collins Christian Publishing Inc. via Thomas Nelson Publishing. All they asked me to do was read it and give an unbiased review.

  1. It sounds like a very interesting book. It is a shame that prices have to be what they are to cover the cost of publishing these days. I appreciate your honest appraisal of this book. I would read it if I had the opportunity.

  2. Hi Cecelia! You don't mention how much the book is, but what a shame if that blocks people from it's good word. Money is so tight these days...
    But the subject does sound interesting, and a fresh approach to an ancient story of the Bible. Always welcome!
    Have a blessed Tuesday :)


I would be honored to hear what you think about this.
