Jesus loves us too much to allow us to remain selfish and focused on our problems. If you are consumed with your own worth, your appearance, your place in the world, your ministry, your health, your lack; READ THIS BOOK. It is God's perspective. "You can dwell on and magnify Me, or you can dwell on and magnify your problems." (Designer Bag) What the heroine, Julie, experiences by God's hand should be happening to all of us on some level–our chastening and shaping are demonstrations of our Father's love and care, shaping for this life, preparing for eternity. I read Julie's complaints to God as if they came directly from my own lips. And I read God's gentle responses as His answers to me. "Designer Bag…" is truly a handbook for a hard time written with such good humor and clarity as to allow us to lighten up, see with new eyes, and get our focus back where it belongs; on our wise good Lord whose plans are perfect, whose leadership is true, and whose faithfulness never fails.

He Still Turns Water Into Wine, January 9, 2013

Jackie Macgirvin has written a masterpiece. If you are ready to have your heart touched from the inside out, read this book. I wish this book was made into a movie, it is so good. I knew a man that promised God, "I will work for You anywhere, I will even be the 'Pastor of the Underpass." After an encounter with God, maybe you will feel the same way. Reading this book, I felt I was there with the main character, Julie, and what she experienced, I saw and felt. It was like a living dream.

Many are not aware of the prophetic or the supernatural power of the spoken word, but this book is a great introduction to the Gifts of The Holy Spirit and the moving of Father in our lives as we listen to Him and learn to trust in His voice. I cried while reading this book. This is not a book really at all; it's an experience with Jesus Himself. If you ever had an interest in missionary work or in helping the poor and the suffering, this book is a must. I hope it finds it's way into every missions college course in America and abroad. This is a book to enjoy as a family and read it together outloud. Every single person's destiny in your family could be altered for eternity. When Jesus comes, he changes water into wine.

One thing you can say about Jackie Macgirvin: she can "stir up your pot" or "rattle your cage" – spiritually and morally. Not only was this book thought-provoking, but it gave me pause to what I believed to be acceptably "doing good". When you consider that we are so blessed in this country that we don't ever have to think about what is going on halfway around the world or how people live, it's no wonder that we never feel the necessity to leave our comfortable life or sacrifice to help someone else. By following in Julie's footsteps of learning to let the Lord lead her, I felt challenged to "step up to the plate" and actually do something that makes a significant difference in the world. And even though I sacrificed to do it, I am so glad I did. My life and my relationship with Jesus are better for it. Thanks, Jackie, your inspiration is awesome.
