One Woman’s Ultimate Friendship with God
This memoir was so moving and so spiritual that it warmed my heart while I was reading it for this review. Samantha Chandler was the daughter of a “former altar-boy-in-the-Catholic-religion father and a pagan mother whom she referred to as wicked and abusive. Samantha claims she has been visited by three angels throughout her years on earth and has looked satan in the eye. She writes her story with passages from the Holy Bible, quoting them and providing explanations on how they relate to the events that occurred in her life. She has dined with U.S. presidents and has gotten married to rich men as well. Samantha’s walk with God officially began when she was twenty-one years old. She surrendered her life to Christ in a small Methodist church where a pastor asked random people of his congregation to come forward and make a public confession of their sins and fully give their lives to the Lord. And years later when she was on a trip to the Holy Land, she got baptized by a church friend in the River Jordan where Jesus was baptized by his cousin John the Baptist. Samantha would also mention that she is a cofounder of a children’s ministry formerly called Children’s Cross Connection which is now called Childspring International dedicated to bringing extraordinarily sick or devastatingly disfigured children from around the world to the USA for donated surgeries.
While reading this book, I could not help but relate to it in my own way. I, too have a special relationship with the Lord where I always keep Him on the forefront because I believe in His leading and compassionate ways. Samantha has that vibe and I felt at peace with her story here which is a story of triumph and victory. She makes me feel proud of her and her devotedness to the Lord because her story is a positive one and should be shared across the world. I do find courage and renewed faith in her words and wish her all the best with wherever she is at at this moment. This book gives me inspiration to write the same on my own experiences in my own journey in life at some point later when I am fully experienced and knowledgeable of the decisions I have made and the wins and losses I have felt with making them.
I recommend this book to all who have a special relationship with the Lord or to those who are looking for something comforting for their own troubled lives in that there is help and faith and love when you have the Lord God in your life. That He listens and never abandons those who seek refuge in His arms. That God, through his Son Jesus Christ, is always merciful and attentive to us and that He is the only one to defeat the wicked snares of the devil. I tell you, when I finished this book last night, I sighed softly to myself and blessed Ms. Chandler in my heart for lending her experiences with the Lord for us to get inspired by. What a blessed story this was. I urge you to buy it for your kindle’s ebook collection because it’s a great victorious book to keep in case you go through trials and tribulations and you need advice and inspiration on how to defeat them. All in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
