Women often pack their lives with family, friends, and faithful service, yet still end up feeling empty and unfulfilled. In Walk It Out, Tricia Goyer demonstrates to women that walking out the mandates of Scripture allows God to spark passion and mission within them.

Whether believers realize it or not, God intended for them to do what the Bible says: adopt the orphan, take the gospel into all the world, and care for the needy. These are mandates that point believers down the path of true living and eternal life.

Sometimes those steps are easy, but many times they require a move outside of what feels safe or secure. When women stop focusing on their own dreams and purposes, and instead focus on God’s dreams and purposes, everything changes. 

Be challenged and be encouraged. That's what you can expect from reading Walk It Out: The Radical Result of Living God's Word One Step at a Time by Tricia Goyer. Powerful in its words, yet emotional in its story. Yes, there's a story in there. With authentic honesty, the author shared with every one of her readers a past, and then how she walked with God every step on.

With personal testimony, add in biblical references, and other works read, Walk It Out isn't just a memoir. It is broken into individual sections and topics, ending with questions to reflect upon, and applicable suggestions for action. It's not just a story to read, but it challenges readers to take that step in obedience towards God's plan and call.

". . . our faith journey isn't about our dreams and ideas for how we can serve God, but about His dreams, plans and desires for us, our community, and our world." (37)

If you've ever felt ashamed or afraid to be used by God, well, Walk It Out covers that too.

"John 4:18 says, 'There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.' God doesn't want to take you back to those dark places to discourage or punish you, but to express His love." (175)

Walk it Out isn't just a book to get us going, but it's a book that inspires us to do so one step at a time.  Even if for whatever reason, you don't think God has any plan for you, Walk It Out will tell you differently, because each of our story is a story that God can and will use. It's heartwarming in a way and I think in all, that's what I can say about Walk It Out. Though my journey is not the same as the author, her approachable style in this book connects my mind and heart, and I'm sure it will with you as well.

". . . God's good plans are not always easy or neat, but when we step out in obedience we never walk alone."  (23)
