2016 Women’s Journey of Faith Winner
Do you long for the joy of complete dependence on God, yet fear the cost of full surrender? DO you long for unconditional acceptance and love, but fear exposing your heart? Do you long for solid peace, absolute trust, and contentment amidst alarming circumstances, but fear those circumstances might shatter your soul?
We fight God for control of our lives because we worry that suffering will overwhelm us. We want safe ministries. Safe friends. Safe children. We want a safe future free of risk, hurt and heartbreak.
But God isn’t calling us to live safely — He is calling us to surrender. Some of God’s greatest blessings are hiding behind those parts of our lives that are most difficult to surrender.
“This book is specifically written with women in mind and therefore is full of insights and wisdom that women of all ages will find deeply relevant. No doubt, you’ll be nodding your heads as you go through each chapter. Glorious Surrender will renew your mind and touch your heart… It is a privilege and a pleasure for me to recommend this book as a powerful tool of discipleship on a subject of critical importance in our day.” ~Robbie Symons, pastor, and author of Passion Cry
“Stacey Weeks writes with transparency about the tension and transformation that her role as a pastor’s wife played in bringing her to the place of ultimate freedom – one who seeks God’s glory above all else. She communicates with honesty about the messiness of real life in public ministry and takes readers on a journey through raw life topics including pride, living authentically, finding true rest in the chaos, and spiritual warfare. Her passion for God’s glory to preoccupy and transform everyday living accompanies every thought on every page. This book is not just for pastor’s wives, it is for any woman wanting to take a vulnerable look at the sins and deceptions that lurk within their minds and hearts, that can stall their progress toward finding true purpose. A must read!” ~Andrea Keene, author of radio bible study, Ruth: redeeming the darkness
“As a former Pastor’s wife, Glorious Surrender struck a chord deep within me. We are all students of life, whether in pastoral ministry or not. Our stories are bigger than we are and God’s grace helps us to redefine the hard places of life. Stacey Weeks beautifully encourages her readers to keep a soft heart for Jesus! Surrender always brings glorious freedom to live, learn and love.” Margaret Gibb, Executive Director, Women Together
“Often we sit in our seats and wonder what the life of our pastor is like but forget that there is another person in that relationship that must honour the God-given calling of that man. Glorious Surrender is more than Stacey’s story; it is about God’s ability to shape any ordinary person into the image of Him.” ~Kevin Miller
“If you want to glorify God in everything you think, say and do, I recommend that you spend time reading Glorious Surrender.” Tami Swartz, Biblical Counsellor
