Susie Hobson ~ Guest Post/Virtual Tour

Thank you, Lori’s Reading Corner, for this guest post. I appreciate your time and interest in my book.

My book, Loving G-d with All Your Heart, got its start about eight years ago. I was reading my Bible in the early morning hours, as is my habit, and I read the Greatest Commandment in one of the Gospels as I had many times before. Yet this time, as soon as I finished reading it I heard a still, small voice ask me, “Do you love ME like that?” At first I said, “Of course I do!” But then I started honesty thinking it over and had to say, “No Lord, but I’m willing to if You will show me how.” That was the start of a deeper and deeper relationship with G-d where I saw Him being more present, active, and powerful in my life than ever before. And that relationship continues to grow with each passing day.

My book is not the story of my journey. Loving G-d with All Your Heart is about having a real, action-filled, and powerful relationship with G-d that overflows into great relationships with others. This book re-thinks what it takes to keep the Greatest Commandment and asks you personally to consider changing your everyday life to one more filled with love. G-d is love and when we love Him without limit that leads to the fulfillment of our heart’s desire—a relationship with the living G-d. A true two-way relationship—not church talk—a relationship that can transform your whole life!

I worked as a counselor for sixteen years and during that time I kept hearing the same statement over and over again. It was, “I want more!” It’s like people were crying out, “I know there is more to life than this, there has got to be more!” There is a desire in us all for something that people, places, possessions, fame, and fortune cannot fill. What is that elusive need, that heart’s desire we all seem to crave? I am convinced that it is a real relationship with G-d—a powerful relationship!

This book is about spending time with G-d, about taking the time to get to know Him deeply and intimately. It may surprise you to know that G-d wants this too! G-d is ready, willing, and waiting to share with you, personally, how to find that more that you have been searching for. What are you waiting for? What could possibly hold you back from running to receive this? What G-d has planned for you and me makes everything dim in comparison!

I hope you will read my book and it will draw you closer to G-d, closer to His Word, His Will, and His Way for your life. May G-d bless you, indeed!
