3 Words That Will Change Your Life: The Secret to Experiencing the Joy of God's Presence by Mike Novotny

3 Words That Will Change Your Life: The Secret to Experiencing the Joy of God's PresenceABOUT THE BOOK

One tiny little sentence can change your life. Ready for it?

"God is here."

It may sound obvious at first, but truly understanding these three words is the key to more happiness, less boredom, more rest, less rush, more love, less drama, more peace, less fear.

A deeply satisfying life doesn't require a sabbatical, a mission trip, or a New Year's resolution. As long as God is glorious enough and near enough, you can enjoy the life that is truly life--not just the cheap substitutes we've settled for.

This book will help you move from just enjoying the good moments in life to worshiping the God who is right here, right now. This movement will exponentially increase your happiness, peace, and contentment. It will allow you to shake off the guilt and shame of sin and see yourself as God sees you. Learn how to recognize God's impact on your life and find the joy he's been waiting to give you.


Most of us have heard the words God is here. Today, as we live in the the midst of the Corona Virus 19 epidemic and witness a time that we've never seen before, these three words are needed even more. In the beginning of his new book author Mike Novotny tells us that "There is a sentence that can change your life." "GOD is here." This sentence and these words have a whole new meaning as we tread these uncertain waters of 'social distancing', 'shelter in place', and empty shelves at the grocery store. In reading this book Christians will be reminded that perhaps they have become complacent in their faith and non-Christians will realize that they may need this GOD who is here. 3 Words That Will Change Your Life is both inspiring and entertaining and the author has filled its 188 pages with scripture, anecdotes, study questions, and prayer prompts that will help you grow closer to God. He even has some black and white illustrations to grab your attention!

These three words, GOD is here, remind us that we are never alone and these words can help us truly experience the joy of His presence. 3 Words That Will Change Your Life is a book that will change your perception of what a Christian life can truly be.

I received a copy of this book from Bethany House Publishing. There was no obligation to post a positive review. These are my own thoughts.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Pastor Mike Novotny has served God’s people in full-time ministry since 2007 in Madison and, most recently, at The CORE in Appleton, Wisconsin.

He also serves as the lead speaker for Time of Grace, where he shares the good news about Jesus through television, print, and online platforms. Mike loves seeing people grasp the depth of God’s amazing grace and unstoppable mercy.

Mike is the author of 3 Words That Will Change Your Life and From Dirty to Dancing: God's Grace for Those Struggling With Pornography

His wife continues to love him (despite plenty of reasons not to), and his two daughters open his eyes to the love of God for every Christian. When not talking about Jesus or dating his wife/girls, Mike loves playing soccer, running, and reading.
