PrayerWalk Review

When I first received this book, I thought that this book talked about our walk with the Lord.  Instead, I found out that the title is very literal in what this book talks about. The whole point of this book was to teach us to talk a literal walk and pray while doing so.

I'm the kind of person that generally likes books that talk about guidelines on how to do/improve things, or a personal story.  This book combined the two together and gave a lot of information on Janet's personal prayer walk time.

I loved the idea itself of a prayer walk.  I desperately need to get out in God's creation and just "take it all in".  Having some time to just think, pray and admire God's handiwork.  I have not been able to do anything like this consistently for a very long time having 3 children and being a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom.  This book has challenged me to take that time that is so desperately needed and get alone with God.  Another thing I have enjoyed about this book is the lessons in the back of the book.  There's some really good information there.

What I did not like about this book was that it was so lengthy in her personal walk.  If I had went into this book realizing that, I think I would have been better that aspect of it.

All in all this book is a great guide and hits on things the modern American needs to do more of.  Exercise, Talk to God and Get Out In Nature!

I had some of my best conversations with God walking dogs while employed at MAS. There really is something about it that just opens you up to God. Happy walking!
