How do I give myself to God completely? What happens when I do?

This is a book for everyone who has ever asked these questions.

Her unusual journey to a personal relationship with God turned her world upside down—and put her life in danger—as a series of strange dreams launched her on a quest that would forever consume her heart, mind, and soul.

    " So real, so touching. Don't expect it to read like fiction because...it isn't. We hear that there are more Christians martyred every day in these times than were killed by Roman persecution. This book puts flesh and blood on the people who risk their lives and a shunning by everyone they hold dear in order to choose Christ. It's like walking in their shoes. Makes me appreciate the blessing of America and our marvelous Bill of Rights. "

    " Sheikh's spirtual autobiography was encouraging to read. I've enjoyed reading her encounter with God as Father. I've found in my own life the courage to speak and breathe the name of God as Abba and have found the courage to share the importance of the name. The relationship expressed through my acknowledgement of Father God has provided me strength that I didn't know that I had, peace I thought I would never experience, and an identity far beyond what I thought was possible. Sheikh's journey into her Child of God-ness is refreshing and inspiring. She shares te experience of being in the warmth of the presence of God and feeling the separation from her Father. She returns to Him and as He always does He accepts her back. "
