3 Words That Will Change Your Life
By Pastor Mike Novotny
GOD is here. That tiny little sentence can change everything. Truly understanding God’s presence is the key to more happiness, less boredom, more rest, less rush, more love, less drama, more peace, less fear.
A deeply satisfying life doesn’t require a sabbatical, a new career, or a new year’s resolution. As long as God is glorious enough and near enough, you can cast aside the cheap substitutes you’ve settled for and enjoy the life that is truly life here and now. This book will help you shake off the guilt and shame of sin and see yourself as God sees you.
Find the joy he has been waiting to give you as you discover how three little words can revolutionize your relationship with God.
A couple of months ago I was given a gift of “3 Words That Will Change Your Life” by a dear friend who is also a Lutheran pastor’s wife like me. She, along with two other pastor wife friends from our seminary days, have been slowly studying the book together and meeting on Zoom to discuss it. It’s so good - it has given old concepts a brand new twist - many “aha!”moments - it’s witty, but so informative - it’s fully grounded in scripture - it’s been a blessing to us, so much so that I ordered 35 copies to use with the women’s Bible study I lead in my church! Our church group will start on Sept 19th. They can’t wait, as I haven’t told them what the 3 Words are yet! Thanks for writing the book, Pastor Novotny - I know it’s going to be a blessing to my group.
This book was fantastic. It really helped me focus on thinking about God, even during every day mundane activities. If you need help forming habits of prayer, focusing on things above instead of on earthy things, or just want to deepen your relationship with God, this is the book for you. If you struggle with negativity, it’s a great reminder of the blessings we experience every day as Christians. It shares the secret to having joy and eagerly anticipating heaven in spite of the suffering we often experience on earth.
Thanks so much for reviewing, Jordyn!
I really enjoyed this book, and it continues to come to mind even months later. The style of the writing was engaging, and the topic so applicable.
Thanks so much for your review, Michelle! So glad you enjoyed the book.
I bought one of these books for each of my kids, so we can all read through it in our respective states. Great book!
Thanks for sharing, Dana! What a neat idea to help stay connected . . . hope your kids enjoyed it too!
I’ve read this book 3 times. Once on my own, once with my family, and once with my church group and it gets better each time! SO relatable on how God shows up in my life every moment of every day.
Thanks for sharing, Matt!
