It's No Secret


Do you often wonder if there is a secret decoder ring necessary to understand some of the secrets of the Bible? Much like the parables that Jesus shared during His personal ministry here on Earth with people who often asked Him many questions is there something more that we are missing when reading the Bible or trying to know God more?

In the book, It's No Secret by Rachel Olsen, I found myself drawn to the comparison she makes between the parables Jesus shared and the deeper meaning found within them.

" I have to admit at times that I've felt like one of those people who prompted Jesus to teach in this manner. I'd listen to what the Pastor said on any given Sunday, but forget about it days or weeks later, never integrating it into my life. Occasionally a passionate Bible teacher or a troubling circumstance would motivate me to read the Bible on my own, but often I felt I got nothing out of it. I'd read a few paragraphs, look up, and wonder what I was supposed to be learning. I'd close my Bible and go on with life until the next time someone or something motivated me to try again.

I've always been a good student, so why couldn't I understand more of the Bible? Did God give out secret decoder rings? Had I somehow failed to get one?" (excerpt pg 20).

This sounds so much like me at some many points of my life, so I was super excited to get to the bottom of this profound mystery in my life. In this book, Rachel Olson takes you through uncovering how you can learn more about God and the true person He really wants you to become.

Here's a sample of just some of the things you will learn:

How to overcome challenges and competitive urges that leave you lonely.
Accepting help from others.
Embracing your need for rest.
Discovering God's surprising source of spiritual beauty and strength

I received this book compliments of B & B Media Group and David C Cook for my honest review and found this book to be a wonderful resource in strengthening my personal spiritual walk and gaining intimacy with God. I would rate this book a 5 out of 5 stars and thinks it's a must have in every woman's life. This book includes a Bible Study within that would benefit a women's Bible Study in some of those areas mentioned above.
