Imagine if God sent a wolf to show/teach you Mercy? (click to tweet)

In this book, I loved the beautiful characters. I loved following Beth throughout her journey.

“To work miracles in our own lives, we must follow this plan: have only love in our hearts, and proceed with first faiththen works. In order for the door to heaven to open to us, we must trust that God is love, that love is what He intends for us, and love is what He wants from us. Then, through loving kindness, we will make our way toward Him.” -Dr. Issam Nemeh

There are many times in life where I have been like Beth wanting a miracle. Big or small. And it’s really interesting that not always are the answers exactly what I’d thought they’d be.

Miracles are a bit controversial today. There are people who take advantage of miracles, by using them for their own gain and those who do fake miracles, which definitely gives Christianity a bad rap.

But, then again, there are people who are humble with the gift God gave them. Which is such a beautiful thing! One spot in Erin’s book that really spoke to me was where Beth brought a bird back to life. That gentleness and love shows God’s love. I love that!

This book really opened my eyes to the true nature of God’s miracles.

God spoke through a donkey in the Bible times.

Then the angel of the Lord moved on ahead and stood in a narrow place where there was no room to turn, either to the right or to the left. When the donkey saw the angel of the Lord, it lay down under Balaam, and he was angry and beat it with his staff. Then theLord opened the donkey’s mouth, and it said to Balaam, “What have I done to you to make you beat me these three times?” Balaam answered the donkey, “You have made a fool of me! If only I had a sword in my hand, I would kill you right now.”

Number 22:26-29

So, God could definitely teach and show Mercy to a person through a wolf. I loved this about the book so much, that after seeing Mercy – I’d await for Mercy’s next appearance in the book.

Erin weaves a story full of descriptive scenes. Exciting experiences that make you turn the pages to find what will happen next. She has rich descriptive words and knows how to craft a story that will bring you on a journey (making you learn something new about yourself in the end). Beth’s unique gift for healing was a ‘fresh breath of air’ in this world of craziness today. I really enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone and everyone. Erin keep up the great work, girl! :)

  1. Sounds like a great message. I love books that I walk away from thinking about, especially if they have a purposeful undertone. Thanks for the review!
