A Different Kind of Wild: Is Your Faith too Tame? is just the book to infuse the spiritual lives of the women who read it. Author Debbie Alsdorf, director of Women’s Ministries at Cornerstone Fellowship Church in California and biblical lay counselor, has written a dynamic new book to help women learn how to turn from self and turn towards Christ. “This new wild is about taking our lives back,” Debbie says. “It’s about becoming women who dare to live differently—wild in surrender, wild in devotion, wild in service, and wild in following what God calls us to.”
A Different Kind of Wild is broken down into three main parts: Developing - Growing Up Spiritually, Daring- Living by a Different Standard, and Determined – Finding Courage to Follow a new path. Debbie will challenge each reader of A Different Kind of Wild to embrace boldly, passionately, and courageously in order to be free to be the person God desires her to be. She encourages women to embrace the adventure God has for them, and watch their faith flourish like never before. She looks at how women can be risk-takers for Christ, stand firm in crises, confront fear with truth, dare to live by a different standard and find courage to follow a new life path.
A Different Kind of Wild offers practical examples, scripture references, reflections questions at the end of each chapter, and a study guide to help facilitate the process for this new type of living. This monumental book is a must read for all women. Be prepared, though, it is not for the faint of heart. This book has the potential to help readers become less like self and more like Christ.
