Draw powerful insights and lessons on faith from the Eagle's way of life.
By Avery T. Willis Jr & Matt Willis
Surveys how that nearly 85% of Christians live passive, unfulfilled lives. This is not only sad, it's unbiblical. What about the "abundant life" Jesus came to give?
Avery Willis and his grandson Matt Willis want to make sure you're not among those who feel stuck in mediocrity. In this groundbreaking book, they've teamed to show you how to leave complacency behind and soar to new heights on your personal and spiritual journey.
Like a mother eagle getting her eaglets to fly, God often "stirs our nests" through uncomfortable circumstances to nudge us toward growth in spiritual maturity. Drawing from both the eagle and the biblical journey of Israel, see how God uses hardships to align our hearts with His purposes and, as a result, "soar" in a relationship with Him.
"God can give you answers to the challenges in your life - but most of all, He want to give you His will," Avery and Matt assert. "Throughout history, God has startled peopleto attention so they will follow Him wholeheartedly. Often This means that God needs to push you out of your comfort zone in order to make you soar."
Recommended by dozens of Christian leaders, including Loren Cunningham and Kay Arthur, Learning to Soar will encourage and empower you to leave your comfort zones, look to God for guidance, take the risk of trusting Him, and soar to unimaginable heights with Him by faith.
