Priscilla takes the book of Jonah and applies the teaching to real life living. I had no idea there was so much to learn from Jonah. She uses real life illustrations to help bring her point home. Loved it!

Judging Jonah? Not after this book. I am Jonah.

Unexpected interruptions in life and schedules...truly the story of my life.
In writing Life Interrupted: Navigating the Unexpected, Priscilla Shirer has practically written much of the story of my life. And she has never even met me! How is this?! Apparently my life situations and struggles are not quite as unique as I once thought. What a comforting realization.
Of all of the books I have read in the past few months, I would say this one speaks most specifically to me. As a matter of fact, I believe that you may discover the same for yourself if you so choose to venture into the waters of Jonah's story as told by Priscilla.
Jonah's story may be a bit familiar to most who have read the Bible or even heard Bible stories throughout their life. However, I have never read nor thought of Jonah's story in quite the way Priscilla Shirer presents it in Life Interrupted. For probably the first time ever, I actually found myself identifying with Jonah rather than judging him.
Have unexpected, even unwanted interruptions come your way causing your life course to be frustratingly altered?
Have you had a very large virtual fish swallow you in order to force you back on a path or mission you were trying to avoid and even run from?
Then I share with you something Priscilla says on this matter,
“…No matter how remote and relaxing, nothing fills the void of the abandoned purpose. Nothing feels the same anymore when you’re running from God.”
Have you made a mess of your life in the past?
Then, I echo a quote Priscilla shares by a lady named Carol Kent when she says,
"My mess has become my greatest message."
If you can say yes to any or all of the above, you may identify with Jonah more than you think. And you will definitely identify with Life Interrupted.
Additionally, I would like to leave you with an encouraging and true reminder from Priscilla,
“When we respond to our second chances by obeying Him with new determination, entirety, and abandon, His Word and work can do amazing things through us, enough to spill over into second chances for lots of others.”
