Blog Tour: Faith Dare - 30 Days To Live Your Life To the Fullest (Review)

Debbie Alsdorf has a dare for you - in fact, she almost "double dares" you.

She dares you to answer this question: What would happen if you lived out your faith every day, in every situation?

In The Faith Dare, Alsdorf  tries to provide answers to this question.

Explaining that if Jesus came to give us abundant life, why do so many live with worn-out faith, simply struggling to get by?

"What if we could be set free from worry, fear, and the constant cycle of searching for significance?" she asks.

Geared for women, The Faith Dare is a 30-day challenge, designed to help individuals develop a new habit of focusing on God's ways and a daily awareness of his presence.

"Whether you do this with a group of girlfriends or by yourself, the next 30 days can change your life. If you're ready to discover what it looks like to live out real faith every day, open this book and take the challenge. I dare you."

What I Thought
Confession time - I'm still at the beginning of the dare. If carrying around a book counts - I've been carrying this book around  - it's been on a mission trip, and riding in my car, waiting for me to take up Alsdorf's dare.

I love how she has set up this book - each day includes six sections:
*Today's Praise/Prayer
*Today's Truth
*Today's Dare
*Journal
*Today's Prayer
*Today I Believe

I also like Alsdorf's writing style - the daily dares seem to flow through the three sections - Live Up, Live In and Live Out.

If you are looking for a way to ramp up your faith walk, I think this book could be the resource to "ignite" your passion.
