It makes you feel so loved by God and helps you look at the barriers that keep us from experiencing God’s grace. Rivera shares stories that allow the reader to connect with their own personal experiences and creates a beautiful journey inward with questions and songs for reflection. I feel very blessed to have read her book and plan to use it in my women’s bible study. I love it!!!”

Through tears and laughter reading the Stories and daily walks Rivera Douthit took with Jesus gave me a new understanding of just how much he loves me and desires to show me his love and be my ” best friend” – Thank you Rivera for sharing your love and heart. WOW – I can not wait to read it again. My first response was to call many of my friends and say ‘YOU MUST READ THIS'”

Experience God in a way you never have before!!”
