Summary

The man was gorgeous, sitting astride his Harley Davidson, mysteriously parked on a moonlit strip of sand. At thirty-seven, Christine Moore had a world-class case of burnout: career blues, no husband, no children, an imperfect figure, and dimming expectations. "I'm going to show you a peace so beautiful you'll probably forget what your life has been like up until now," he said. Who was this guy? "My friends call me Joe. Others call me 'God' or 'Higher Power.' You can call me whatever you're most comfortable with." Right.

But he knows about her, every one of her heart's desires. A sweet serenity settles over Christine. And so the journey begins, a triumphant odyssey of self-discovery that illuminates our souls. As we join one woman's inspiring quest for healing and life-changing truths, we discover six powerful precepts that offer the deepest peace and fulfillment we can ever know. Every woman longing to experience the joy of loving and of respecting her true self will find comfort, guidance, and hope in the simple, profound secrets to an enlightened and enriched new life that Christine learns.

Great concept.

Loved how the supernatural interwove with the natural. This story was totally believable. Made me think of the scripture which talks about 'entertaining strangers as they could be angels in disguise'. Totally changed the way in which I view God.

God speaks-great book

Despite what other "by the book" reviewers have said, this is a lovely, well written and inspirational story. How comforting to know God is with us, knows us and cares what we think and feel, as individuals. What I loved most is when Joe says that Man messed up the message with individualistic, selfish interpretations then waged war over who was right. How timely. Many's the time I've referred back to this when I'm hurt or lonely or discouraged. Loving one's self is the greatest gift God gives. For those who "trashed" it before finishing, let me tell you I've listened to it many times and it always says something different and meaningful to me. Thanks, Joan, for a wonderful story.

A Soul's Connection...

Incredible perspective changing, thought provoking book. Presents God as an all knowing, all powerful, loving being - wanting to personally connect with a lost soul who has been turned off by the dogma of modern Christianity...takes you back to the basics...love and kindness.

This book lifted my spirits

I read this book years ago and enjoyed it so much I wanted to listen to it again.
The narrator has a wonderful voice.
The story is so uplifting. It left me wanting to clean out my closet and simplify my own life.

My Favorite Audiobook of All Time

I have listened to this countless times, both on cassette tape and now audiobook. It never fails to help me imagine actually having 'Joe' with me. And a little of what Jesus would be like.
