He Calls Me Bethany

By Barbara Holmes
Produced by Tanya Nakogee

My ultimate prayer for you for this book is that these stories from my experiences with Jesus would:

  • Inspire the discovery and understanding of God’s point of view of who you are and what He is calling you to.

  • Encourage faithfulness to God’s Word and recognition of the faithfulness of God in your own life.

  • Increase your expectation to hear from the Lord, which requires learning how He speaks to you.

  • Promote faith living and not fear living.

  • Impart courage to allow our Creator to define Himself and what He’s capable of rather than Him being defined by boundaries placed on Him.

I appreciate every section in this book (Finding Rest in The Garden of The Lord).  Barbara Holmes has a way of hearing God’s voice and seeing God’s hand in the everyday nitty gritty of life—and then passing it on!  The lessons shared here are priceless; the “tidbits” worth clinging to.
