What I'm Reading - Call of A Coward

My Thoughts

Marcia's husband returns from a mission trip feeling that God was calling them to move to Guatemala to continue to the work he was doing there. I love that Marcia is so honest and transparent about her doubts and fears. She shares how she wrestles with them and through her faith in God overcomes them. I love all the stories she shares about how God shows up while they are there. She is also very honest about how hard it was for her when she returned to the states and how she longed to go back. This is a wonderful story of a wife and mother who follows Him wherever He may take her.

About the Book

The problem with promising God you'll follow Him wherever He leads is that you just might have to go.
When her husband returned from a church mission trip and disrupted her tidy, middle-class afternoon with the conviction they should pack up and move to a Mayan village in Guatemala, Marcia Moston had to wonder-faithful or foolish?

On a journey that leads from the highlands of Guatemala to a small Vermont village, Marcia follows God's call for her husband even though it seems to conflict with her own dreams, require credentials she lacks, and demand courage she doesn't feel she has.

Written with humor and insight, Call of a Coward is a candid account of a modern-day seeker and a very real God who makes cowards courageous, ordinary lives purposeful, and dried-up dreams fruitful.
