FAITH: Use it or Lose it!
by Dr. Mary Edwards
Pick up any morning newspaper, turn on the local or worldwide news, listen to the conversations of your family, friends, and associates, and you will know that there is a whole lot of shaking going on. People are fearful.
No one wants to be reminded that millions have lost their jobs, billions of dollars have been lost in the stock market. Hundreds of thousands of homes have been foreclosed. Countries are warring against each other. Homicides are happening every minute. And trillions of dollars for our future have been spent. What do we do? Are there options? Indeed, there are. Here's two:
First, pick up your Bible and read Hebrews 11 about faith. Then, pick up a copy of Dr. Mary Edwards' new book, Faith: Use It or Lose it!
In her book, published by Leaves of Gold Consulting, LLC, Edwards gives insightful help on how to obtain, maintain, and increase one's faith.
What is Faith?
Why have faith in God
Levels of Faith
Dealing with weariness, wrong attitudes, trust, patience, discipline, joy and prayer
The book concludes with testimonies written by men and women who have in the past and continue to walk by faith and not by sight.
Edwards has had first-hand experience in all of the areas she writes about. A seasoned writer, widow, and ordained minister, her writings always have been transparent, easy to read, and applicable. She openly shares with her readers how they can survive and thrive, insight of the many challenges facing us today.
the back cover of her new book, FAITH: USE IT OR LOSE IT!, Dr. Mary Edwards offers a “Money Back Guarantee” if this book doesn't bless
you. Following are some praise reports...
"Dr. Mary Edwards came to my home to pray with me. I am a widow and a
senior. My legs have been afflicted for some time. She brought with her
a gift copy of her new book, FAITH: USE IT OR LOSE IT! After praying
with me, she left her prayer blanket for me to use for one week. Her
parting words were, “When I return, I want to hear a praise report.”
A week later she did return. I had her report ready and told her as soon as she walked through the door. I said, “Let me tell you what happened. The other day I wanted to start reading your book, which was nearby, but I didn't want to get up and get my reading glasses. So, I picked up the book anyway and tried to read it WITHOUT my glasses. Before I knew it, I had nearly finished the entire book! PRAISE THE LORD. I no longer need my glasses. And my faith has increased for my legs to be healed. No wonder Minister Edwards can give a MONEY BACK GUARANTEE!"
"Hello Minister Edwards,
Let me tell you about my husband. When I told him about the book you wrote and I was in the book and wanted him to read some of the testimonies, he said , “Well, you know it's hard for me to read because of my limited eyesight.” So I said, “Just start off by reading what I contributed to the book Because this is a blessed book and it will help you to read every word.” He just looked at me and said, “Well, ok let me see the book.” So I gave it to him without his glasses and said,”Now just look at the page and think real hard and you will be able to read my story.” Well, he forgot to even pick up his glasses. He just picked up the book and the next thing I heard was words coming from his mouth and he said. “Wow, I read your story without my glasses.” What he did not know is when I gave him the book I said a little prayer, "Lord, let him see what kind of work you do to help those who do not think there are miracles waiting to come forth." Well, now he has a different attitude."
Min. Edwards, when I finished reading your book, I wrote you a praise
report on your facebook page, I checked for a while to see if you had
read it, but I guess it took you awhile, and it might be in your old
messages. But all I can say is you outdid yourself. Every chapter that
I read I could feel the anointing. Your book was such a blessing for
me, because my faith was being challenged, and your book was my anchor.
Thank you for allowing GOD to use you once again.
Also, this past Friday I had the honor of meeting two of the people who gave testimonies in your book. And a pastor who use to be your prayer partner. This is a small world!
