He doesn't give up on us because we made mistakes. He has a design and purpose to fulfill, and the enemy would love nothing more than to take us out with exhaustion and wasted time."--Caroline Barnett, co-pastor of The Dream Center and author of Willing to Walk on Water "Saying yes to God is the most important decision you can make, but it shouldn't stop there. After beginning a relationship with Christ, we must constantly say yes to His influence, wisdom, and power in our lives. Your Sacred Yes will empower and equip you to say yes to a life of freedom, fulfillment, and significance. Say yes!"--Craig Groeschel, senior pastor of LifeChurch.tv and author of From This Day Forward "Challenging us to carefully consider our sacred responsibilities, Susie Larson uses her trademark transparent stories to compel us to rest more and to make the difficult decisions that will prioritize our relationship with God. If you find yourself in the rat race of life, Your Sacred Yes will give you the courage to slow down and say yes to the right things."--Pastor Nate and Jodi Ruch, Emmanuel Christian Center "This is such a timely book for all of us.
