Book Review ~ Lazarus Awakening


One of the BEST books I have read on the subject of “Finding Your Place in the Heart of God“.

You know I am a big time lover of books and that I review books for a few different organizations but in the last few months I can think of no other book that I was this excited to get my hands on. You see, I am a BIG fan of the books “Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World” and “Having a Mary Spirit” so when I saw that Joanna Weaver had written another book for this series I just about jumped through my computer to get my hands on it.

This is going to be one of those books that I read and re-read time and again. The book is packed full of truth, memorable stories and incredible application. I love that it has a ten week Bible study with it as well as several appendix’s in the back to tackle head on how to identify strongholds, hints for unwinding grave clothes, finding out who you are in Christ, and resources for resurrected living.

I’ve dog eared pages, highlighted, underlined, scribbled notes inside and already made a list of women that I know that absolutely MUST HAVE this book!

I could go on and on about how amazing this book is, but at this point I could probably write for days about it…you owe it to yourself to check out this book, especially if you are looking for something that will bring you a doorway into “Finding Your Place in the Heart of God“.


Lazarus Awakening
Getting God’s Love from Our Heads to Our Hearts

You believe that God loves the world…but sometimes you wonder if He truly loves you.
For many of us, moving the truth of God’s love from our heads to our hearts is a lifelong process. As we consider our inadequacies or grieve our shattered dreams, we find it difficult to believe that God cares for us personally.
In this life-giving book, Joanna Weaver shows you how to embrace the truth that Jesus loves you apart from anything you accomplish, apart from anything you bring. Just as He called Lazarus forth to new life, Jesus wants to free you to live fully in the light of His love, unbound from the grave clothes of fear, regret, and self-condemnation.
Love is calling your name.
Combining unforgettable real-life illustrations with unexpected biblical insights, Joanna Weaver invites you to experience a spiritual resurrection that will forever change your understanding of what it means to be the one Jesus loves. Bible study and Leader’s Guide available here.

Joanna is celebrating the release of Lazarus Awakening with the Heart of God KINDLE Giveaway!
In Lazarus Awakening Joanna writes about getting God’s love from our heads to our hearts. We all know Jesus loved Mary – look how she worshiped. And we can understand why He loved Martha – after all, look how she served. But what about those of us who don’t know where we fit in the heart of God? Lazarus Awakening explores the tale of the third follower – Mary and Martha’s brother, Lazarus. We never hear him speak, we never see him serve. The only thing of any significance that Lazarus did was to die. And yet, the Bible is clear. Jesus loved Lazarus. And He loves you and me as well. Lazarus Awakening looks at different aspects of the story we find in John 11. We learn what it means to be a friend of God and begin recognizing the tombs we spend far too much time in.
