Worthwhile and profitable read
I found this audiobook to be a fascinating, genuine, honest glimpse into the life of Rosaria Butterfield. I expected that much--I expected to merely listen to her story, as a curious onlooker peeping in to observe a life, and nothing more. I would go away not much different, I thought, having had my curiosity satisfied.

What I did not expect was how profitable this story would be, how much I would learn, how many observations of wisdom would stand out like jewels, how rich and full of nuance and meaning and relevance this story would be. As I listened to it, I praised God for His glorious work in this one woman's life, and I marveled at the continued unfolding of transformation that He worked as she walked with Him step by step. This is most definitely worth reading for far more than mere curiosity. It is instructive, it is insightful, it is real. It takes an honest look at Christian conversion and growth. It is a story full of life, and that life is contagious.

The Author Reads her Book
First, there should be a rule that audiobooks should be ready by the Author themselves. It adds a greater depth to the story which some impersonal audiobook reader cannot bring to the work nor ever do justice to the original author's work. Second, Dr Butterfield brings a message that the Christian church needs to hear at this seminal hour in history.

Great Book
Truly a great book - previous reviewer said it all. Not your typical Christian memoir - so rich and not sugar coated. A realistic picture of a true conversion and sanctification and the way God can use a life given to Him. But I must say this author is more gifted than most in so many ways. To top it all off, she reads the book perfectly unlike many authors who read their own books. I can't recommend it highly enough - one of the best Christian books I've heard. A mind changer.

Challenging and Thought Provoking
I loved hearing this woman's story with her own voice narrating it. The woo of the Holy Spirit in small ways in Rosaria's life was encouraging to me as I listened. The Christian Community as a whole has much to learn from her perspective. Could the average Christian write a thoughtful letter as her future pastor did which would compel her to consider research on the Christian World View? Probably not. Learning to demonstrate Christ to not just the homosexual community, but the whole world, is something we must practice daily. This book will make you stop and think as you listen. There is quite a bit about the Reformed Presbyterian denomination woven into her story and rightly so since it is very key to how she practices her faith. I was not familiar with this denomination and enjoyed learning about it. Her story is also about their experience with foster care and adoption. Thank you, Rosaria, for your beautiful testimony.
