A few weeks ago a woman from Australia wrote me this note:
I would just like to tell you about your book He Loves Me. The truth is that book blew me off the planet!!!!
These are the reasons: When I was a child my parents and all other family were nonreligious and nonChristians. I am not against them, but I knew nothing of God. As I was walking down the road to primary school about the age of nine, I looked behind my shoulder and saw something. In my mind I went, “What? Why would the God of the universe be with ME?” But I was very shy and quiet and never spoke of it to anyone. Then when I turned ten I started to think “I am going to Sunday school at the local church” So I did for a couple of years but would often go out the back door and go home as often the speaker would say, “Come on children , give your heart to God.” I was so shy I kept leaving! One Sunday morning I woke up and thought “I’m not going again.” Then a voice jumped into my brain,” Off you go.” So I accepted that from God. At that point I was twelve and the main thing I loved was music. So I went to church and one song totally affected me, ” I am so glad that our Father in Heaven tells of his love in the book he has given” then the chorus came up, “Jesus loves me, Jesus loves me JESUS LOVES EVEN ME!!!!!!!!! Those 4 words changed my life and has affected me forever (I am getting old).
When I went to a different church some years later I felt too dominated. Though I never left Jesus I was very unhappy. Then my husband bought two books, and I looked at your book He loves Me I thought, “Oh I don’t need to read this as I know he loves me.. But then out of the blue a voice jumped into my brain again, “Keep reading!” So I did and it blew me off the planet!!!! Your book took me back to the past when Jesus loved even ME!!
My husband is a minister and has spread your book around and preached your words from it. Your book is so fabulous and I have shared it with many people and many of them have changed from church to Jesus. We’ve now read it 8 times. I hope you don’t mind me doing this.
Of course I don’t mind. I can’t tell you how many people have seen the title of the book and thought, “Well of course, everyone knows that.” It is some years later before they actually read it and discover that this isn’t just about the fact that God loves you, but actually how we can live each day in the love of a gracious Father. The content of that book changed my life over 22 years ago and I’m still learning how to live in that reality every day. The conversations that feed my heart the most center around how others are learning to live there as well.
So I tell you want I’m going to do, for those on this list who don’t have a copy of this book or want one to pass along. For a limited time we’re going to make it available for $9.00 per copy. I think it and Finding Church make the perfect combination to help you find your way into living in his affection and sharing it with others, regardless of the circumstances you may encounter. Shipping is extra, and yes we know that shipping to International destinations is prohibitively expensive. If you want to order up to four of our books, however, we can ship all four for the same price we can ship one.
