Publisher's Description

In high school, Kristen Welch wore a big, sparkly rhinestone “Jesus” pin to school every day and carried her Bible wherever she went. (Yes, she was that girl.) But she didn’t realize her faith, though sincere, was shallow; much like her artificial accessory, it would one day tarnish, no longer a true fit for who she was. As real life catapulted Kristen into places and situations she’d never imagined, there came a day when she stood shocked in the slums of Africa and realized in one desperate moment that Jesus wasn’t enough for her. At least . . . she wasn’t living like He was. On the brink of a risk bigger than any she’d ever taken, Kristen knew she didn’t stand a chance—unless she was willing to put aside the rhinestones and get branded by the real thing. Rhinestone Jesus is the story of one woman’s journey from comfortably living a safe, “good-girl” faith that didn’t cost much, to realizing that God was daring her to say yes to a bolder, more authentic, more dangerous way. This story of spiritual adventure throws the doors wide open for any woman who’s ever thought of herself as “just a mom.” Kristen will inspire and empower you to say yes to God right where you are—and stand amazed at how your life will shine.

    Rhinestone Jesus is a humerous and inspiring book about a woman who said yes to Gods plan for her and her family and the result was amazing. After the author told God yes, things set in motion and the result was a great ministry: Mercy House. Mercy House is located in Kenya and there the family runs a safe, loving, and Christian home for homeless teens that are pregnant. Though this ministry is thriving and doing great work, things were not always so. The author was so honest retelling the story of her and her familys journey about how Mercy House was established and I found her honesty refreshing. The author recounted that though the family did experience good times, there were many times when things were difficult or things just did not go as planned. Instead of giving up, they kept trusting God and telling Him yes and He worked things out according to His plan. For me, I found this story to be encouraging because it reminds me of the great things that can happen when I dont give up when things get hard and what can happen if I just trust God instead. This is a great read and I hope other readers enjoy this story as much as I did.

    Oh.My.Goodnes! What a fabulous book! I thought this was going to be another mommy blogging book when I stared it. And it was good My youngest child told me the other day that she wanted to be the president of the United States. Really? I asked. Because you want to change the world? No, she answered. I want to be the boss of you. And Kristen confesses that her family is THAT family the one whose children throw tantrums in Target and the one who the emergency room nurses know by name and the one who struggles living godly lives, where the husband struggles with pornography and the wife struggles to not shop too much.

    BUT THEN Kristen took a trip to Africa with Compassion International that rocked her world. What could she do to change her world, she, just a mom with dirty laundry and dust bunnies galore. This is what she did and her response to other moms is Dear moms, love God; love others. Its a simple response to His great love for us. You dont have to do something big for Him; just do something because your yes matters! He can make something beautiful from your life too.

    What I loved about Kristens book was I didnt leave it feeling guilty for not doing what she did or feeling like I should. Instead I felt like she was saying do something that is my passion that honors God. Fabulous book and I really want my book club and all my friends to read this one! Wish I could give it more stars than 5!!!

    In Rhinestone Jesus, Kristen Welch tells her story and shares about the journey God has brought her on. She shares about high school, the early years of marriage, and the challenging days of motherhood. She shares about the hard things God brought them through as a couple and as a family. She tells the story of travelling to Kenya with Compassion International and her heart being broken there. The time in Kenya shook her awake from her American dream, and soon a dream for a maternity home in Kenya began to grow.

    I loved reading Kristen's heart in these pages. She is real and honest in Rhinestone Jesus. She will be the first to admit that their family isn't perfect, but they are striving to glorify the Lord in all they do. In the process of telling her story, Kristen also shares practical tips and ideas for nurturing our own families, growing closer to one another, and keeping our family focused on glorifying God.

    Throughout the book, Kristen encourages other Christians to follow the Lord and say yes to Him in whatever He calls them to do, no matter how "big" or "small" it is. She says, "Saying yes isn't really about doing it all. It's about saying yes right where you are. It may seem small or insignificant, but any time you love someone or care for another person's needs, you're changing their world, and yours, too. It's about looking up from your everyday life and seeing opportunities around you to make a difference. It's about loving others as we are loved."

    Tyndale House Publishers provided me with a complimentary copy of Rhinestone Jesus. All opinions are my own.

    I really enjoyed this book! I learned about the wonderful ministry of Mercy House just this year. How amazing to read the story of how God brought it all together! The book is more than just the story of Kristen's journey. She wrestles through so many things that I wrestle through, too. She talks about loving the poor and yet living in rich America. How do you buy a couch when people around the world are dying of hunger. She talks about bringing her whole family into service together. She talks about the highs and lows of trying to follow Jesus with her whole heart. I was challenged and inspired by this book. It is very well written and well worth the read.

    Sometimes its just not enough to be a Christian! We need more of Jesus in our life, not in the form of our cross pendants, bumper stickers or Jesus T-Shirts but the Jesus Who can transform the world through us. This is exactly what drove Kristen Welch, the author of the book Rhinestone Jesus, to her own world changing adventure with Jesus.

    In her book, Kristen takes us through her own adventure with Jesus Christ. As she desired to do more for God, God did open ways for her to do just that and in ways she had never imagined. She walks us through this journey describing all the ups and downs, not shying away from mentioning the moments she felt like giving up. Yet in all the experiences she writes, she has an encouraging undertone. Her writing is free from all the frills and decorations, presenting a Christ centered life like it is. At the end of each chapter she has a section named "Unpinned Faith" where she encourages the reader to interact with her story in their own way. Questions that may help uncover some of the issues the reader themselves may be dealing with.

    I was greatly encouraged and challenged by this book and would definitely recommend this book for those who have become callous to their life in Jesus Christ and want out of the mundane life of easy faith!
