Made to Move Mountains: How God Uses Our Dreams and Disasters to Accomplish the Impossible by Kristen Welch

Made to Move Mountains: How God Uses Our Dreams and Disasters to Accomplish the ImpossibleABOUT THE BOOK

Life is an incredible journey with ups and downs. We soar, struggle, scale and stumble, and often stand at the edge of cliffs, afraid to step into the unknown, unsure of where we will land. But instead of running away, we are called by God to stand firm, muster up what faith we can, and take a step. Because we were made to move mountains.

In this inspiring book, Kristen Welch calls you to step out in faith and climb the mountain in front of you--not because you are good enough or adequate or able, but because God makes a way where there is no way. With heartbreaking and hopeful personal stories, Scripture, and questions for contemplation, she draws you out of fear and into a holy confidence, showing you that the mountain in your path was put there on purpose, so that you could exercise--and grow--your faith.


Kristen Welch has shared her own fears, failings, and triumphs so that she can assure others that they are Made to Move Mountains. Each chapter of this book is filled with encouraging thoughts from different sources, inspiring words from God's Word, a Mountaintop Moment to reflect on, and a lined Journal page that allows readers to write down their thoughts. You will want to read slowly and you'll want to have your highlighter handy as you go through the chapters because Made to Move Mountains isn't a book to read hurriedly or just once. This is a book to refer to time and time again because our lives are always going to have hurdles to jump and mountains that need to be climbed or moved!

If you are looking for motivation and inspiration, if you're wanting to deepen your faith, and if you want to be braver in your Christian walk, you will certainly want to read Made to Move Mountains.

I received a copy of this book from Baker Books. There was no obligation for a positive or favorable review. These are my own thoughts and opinions.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Kristen Welch is a mom just like you and me--only funnier.

In 2010, she went to Kenya as a blogger for Compassion International, and regularly contributes to online magazine Blissfully Domestic and (In)Courage, an inspirational blog for women.
