The Peter Potential by Emily Belle Freeman and David Butler, Blog Tour & Book Review


Have you ever wondered if God has greater things in store for you? The Bible is clear that though Peter saw himself as only a fisherman, the Lord saw him as a fisher of men, a leader among men, the rock upon which His Church would be built. Divinity gave Him the insight to extend the invitations that would help Peter discover the life he was meant to live. This full-color gift book is profound in its simplicity as the authors take the reader through the invitations the Lord extended to Peter. Journey with Peter and the Savior as you begin to understand the potential the Lord sees in you.

My Review:

This book was just what I needed to read.  I read it in one sitting because the ideas, the inspiration I found in this book kept me turning the pages.  Emily Freeman has been blessed with a gift for writing, but also a gift for inspiring her readers to be better people.  I found myself highlighting certain phrases throughout the book because I didn't want to forget how I too, can be all that the Lord wants me to be.  If the Lord could take a few loaves and fishes, then what can he do with me?  One single person, one soul, one life.  The possibilities are endless! Just like Peter who chose to leave his life as a fisherman and followed the Savior, I too can follow him and have the potential to be all that He can help me to become.  I find myself hard pressed for the words to explain how much this book has lifted me up and filled me with hope to be better.  Read it, re-read it, let your friends and family read it and then read it again.  You will continue to be uplifted and know that you can be what the Lord would have you be, if you accept His invitations.  Just like He asked Peter to come and follow Him.  One of my favorite quotes from the book, "Accept His invitations.  Launch out into the deep.  Leave behind your nets.  Step into the water.  Give Him all that you have.  Leave neutral gournd.   Come running.  Entertain thoughts of greatness.  Experience the Peter Potential.  Discover the life you were meant to live."  I invite you to experience the Peter Potential in your own life.  Read this book, you will be glad you did!

Happy Reading!!!
