Book Review: Faith Leaps by Alyssa Avant

"A faith leap is stepping out of your own comfort zone into the hands of God. I learned this firsthand, after taking my own leap of faith five years ago. One critical element of a faith leap is having enough faith to take the first step, whether you take it trembling or firmly planted with confidence. Either way, you must take the step!”  (Alyssa Avant)  So began the inspiration for the new book titled, “Faith Leaps.”  Alyssa subtitled her book, “The Christian Mom’s Guide to Passion, Purpose, and Profit.”  That says it all!

“Faith Leaps” gives so much useful information that you will have difficulty putting it down!  Alyssa includes stories from her own life that many of us Christian Moms have likely experienced as well.  She gives practical advice that you can put into action immediately.  She also includes lists!  I, for one, love lists.  They allow me to make sure that I get it all done as I check off each item one by one.  Of all of the Christian books written about “your purpose” in the past years, I haven’t read one yet that puts it as concise and easy-to-follow as “Faith Leaps.” 

Alyssa not only addresses finding your passion, your purpose, and how to put it into action to make profit; she includes many Christian concepts as well.  Spiritual gifts, tithing, and Bible verses are all included in her “framework” that made her own “Faith Leap” successful.  One of my favorite parts of the book is where she addresses all of the things that work together to make up our God-given purpose.  “Ultimately you will want to combine…spiritual gifts, talents, and skills to help you pursue your passion and purpose.  God uses these three things together to create your ‘story.’”

I am thankful to be a part of “launching” Alyssa’s dream come true in this book.  She has truly found direction from God and writes from that perspective.  There is so much more than what I have covered in this short review.  I know that you, like me, will find several aspects of this book that will speak to your heart.  You can find "Faith Leaps" on Amazon in paperback by clicking here.  You can also purchase the book for your Kindle by clicking here.
