From Publishers Weekly Popular Women of Faith presenter Wells speaks with delightful winsomeness of her tender relationship with God in this uplifting, if uneven, guide to an abundant life. Wells, who endured multiple complications following a surgery, details her harrowing experience and what she learned about Christ's enabling strength. The author always believed her personal relationship with Jesus was characterized by intimacy and committed love; now, as a great-grandmother, she feels her spiritual understanding is richer and more precious than ever before. Wells offers snapshots of her life history, describing being raised by her own devout great-grandmother, and how early on she was assured of God's active participation in her poverty-stricken life. Readers will gain deep appreciation for Wells's struggles and triumphs, and read with interest the assorted vignettes in which Wells played counselor and prayer warrior to other hurting Christians. However, the writing is lackluster and disorganized; much of this text is presented with little transitioning from one topic to the next. Further, a hefty one-third of the book is allotted to simply listing various Bible passages by theme. While Wells has an interesting personal testimony, her written work is disappointing compared to her public speaking. (Feb.)
