Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works,
and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Matt. 5:16
The Bible tells us we need to “shine before men,” but what does this mean and how do we do it? In Shine: How to Walk the Talk, Nancy Segovia lays out a series of simple steps you can to take to walk the talk: to love God above all and your neighbor as yourself. Using parables, folk tales, and struggles from her own life, she provides uplifting insights into the Christian walk that can make your first steps easier. She examines scripture for clues on what it means to shine, how to reflect God’s love, and what to do when the muddy messes of life blot out God’s light in you. You will relate to her failings, those "Duh!" moments when spiritual understanding begins to dawn. Most important, you will learn how to apply that understanding―you will learn how to turn your talk into your walk and how to help others to do the same.
My Review: So when I got this book I was a little ify on the book. I'm not a religious person, yet I gave it a try because of other aspects.
First it was hard for me to follow the book, I was confused ans had to reread the same pages a few times before I got a hold on the book.
When I finally got into reading the book, I found it to be good. There are "Duh" moments and things that I think women would love to read. Hey some things I could relate to! Something I didn't think of, when I first got this book. I did have many questions and wonder about this book. At the end the book was better than I thought of.
Religion aspects, I didn't have thoughts on, since I really have NOTHING to do with religion and don't know one thing about anything in a bible. Everything else I really did enjoy and was able to get into it.
For my first try at this style of book, I really did better than I thought. I got it done and could relate to it, and didn't throw it after half way. Besides this was a quick read and can easily be done in a day. A good hour should be the most you need for this book, it really is that short.
