ABOUT THE Women Who Move Mountains Book
Sue Detweiler wrote the book Women Who Move Mountains with tears streaming down her face. Every odd chapter begins with a powerful testimony of a woman who overcomes obstacles in her life. Even numbered chapters contain a personal guide to going deeper in bible study and prayer. In part 2 of the book Sue provides a 21 Day Guide to Spiritual Breakthrough and other useful resources to jump start your relationship with God.
I agree with Sue. I believe this book will transform you.
Through stores, scripture, prayer, decrees and journal questions, Sue and I are confident your soul will awaken to the power and presence of Jesus Christ.
