    Reviewed at The Power of Words I first saw the title, I thought this was a story for children However, closer inspection revealed it to be a Christian living book inspired by a fairy tale and with a very relevant message for today s times Jesus and the Beanstalk is a unique book that can be used for personal or group study, and I enjoyed it very much.Facts ground us, give us footing, and secure us in place, but stories lift our eyes to meet his gaze Lori Stanley Roeleveld understands the power of story to effect change, and very capably combines storytelling, personal experience, and Scripture based teaching into an engaging and inspirational narrative At the heart of this book are eight spiritual fruits drawn from 2 Peter 1 such as faith, virtue, steadfastness, godliness Each topic is spread out over six days of in depth Bible study, inspirational essays, and ending with a day of reflection I made special note of Lori s list of Heritage of Faith Walkers related to each spiritual fruit people like George Mueller, Amy Carmichael, Jim Elliot, Billy Graham, Philip Yancey, Max Lucado, Oswald ...

    Jesus and the Beanstalk may not have grabbed me with the title, but it certainly did capture me completely in the introduction Here, Roeleveld sets the stage for her book by emphasizing one of my favorite truths stories are powerful agents of change.In addition to the introduction, the book is divided into three parts Jesus and the Beanstalk, Trading In Our Cows, and Clinging to the Vine as well as a Once Upon a Foreword and a Happily Ever Afterword In short, Jesus and the Beanstalk is the kind of Christian living nonfiction that appeals directly to the avid fiction reader, especially those of us who have a fondness for fairy tales.Roeleveld s writing style is conversational and engaging, making each chapter go by quickly But you ll want to make sure you savor each chapter, too, because there s a lot of great truth here The ideal nonfiction book for the fiction aficionado, Jesus and the Beanstalk teaches us how to live effective lives as Christ...

    Deb s Dozen We all have our giants Overcome yours by living a fruit filled life Jesus and the Beanstalk by Lori Stanley Roeleveld The book has long been released I was on her street team I was supposed to read and tout the book throughout my social media I was supposed to write this review and post it everywhere during her blog tour I didn t.I confess I had a very hard time reading this book Lori always makes me think She makes me consider things I don t necessarily want to face my giants She causes me to ponder and consider and remember and confess Most of all, she makes me desire to change.Lori, through her blog, LoriRoeleveld.com, and through this Jesus and the Beanstalk book, makes me want to grow closer to Jesus She makes me want to spend time with him She makes me want to love you and I must admit I don t always She challenges me to think about virtue and perseverance and knowledge and true love Of faith and godliness, of goodness and self control I don t like to think of those things I fall too short in embodying them But we all do, and there stands Jesus He knows we can t be or do or exemplify any of these things without him.I took months to read this book I missed all my commitments to help promote the book But I ve learned, I ve thought, I ve started to change So, I challenge you t...

    I don t usually like reading books like Jesus and the Beanstalk because most of the time they are full of platitudes and that in itself just gets old But I have some giants in my life right now that lent me to believe that this book just might give me some insight on how to deal with them.The beanstalk theory is going off the old nursery rhyme about Jack and the Beanstalk This book is about teaching you how to be a giant slayer It will give you some helpful tips on slaying your giants with a little faith and Jesus We tend to get bogged down in our worldly cares and allowed our giants to control us, take over, and make ourselves carelessly worry about everything and anything It is my opinion that we are supposed to take our worries to Jesus and leave them there and allow Him to take care of them for us.The author gives verses from God s Word constantly to back up what she is teaching We needed to be reminded every day that He who lives in us is greater than any giant we may be trying to slay in our lives You don t fight a war by yourself ever, so why try to slay your gian...

    I think that all of us who are Christ followers want to live a fruitful life We find that sometimes because of fear, apathy or sin that we have in our life that we can t grow spiritually and that we can t pass on our faith in a way that leads to a a fruitful life I know that I have my own struggles with fear and giants in my life So, when I received the opportunity to review Jesus and the Beanstalk Overcoming Your Giants and Living a Fruitful Life, I was intrigued by the author s premise and looked forward to spending a little time exploring it.In this book, Roeleveld begins with a simple premise We live in a land of giants God honors those with faith, but often we, like Jack in the Beanstalk s mother, are so focused on our mundane circumstances and our perceived needs that we can t appreciate the truth wealth of what we have inside our faith After taking this approach to looking at faith and the discouragements from faith, Roeleveld spends some time encouraging us to develop growth oriented attitudes spiritually, and explaining how all this relates to eight character qualities relayed in 2 Peter 1.The meat of the book is an eight week Bible study of sorts where the...

    I was so hopeful with this book So very, very hopeful.Like you, and the rest of the world, I have giants Giants that need to be slain Giants I m powerless against And that s the whole point I m powerless But Jesus is powerful And He is the giant slayer If this book had just said that very thing it would have been a GREAT book I would be singing it s praises But it fell flat with me I felt as if the author was telling me to just be better at loving Jesus, produce in myself faith If I just DID , the giants would be killed by MY OWN sword But that s isn t the way it works What works is abiding in Jesus, allowing His life to take over my deadness and my giants, submitting to His leadership, standing firm IN Him, and then I can watch those giants fall Not because I m strong because I m not, but because He is strong Apart from Him I can do nothing The author said a few times that we are small But we aren t We are NOT small, we ARE God s children, infused with His Spirit And that makes us BIG and Dangerous We only feel small when we focus on self and those we consider giants.I thought the author used a lot of suppositions that might or might not be true.I did like the amount of Scripture the au...

    Title Jesus the BeanstalkAuthor Lori Stanley RoeleveldPages 304Year 2016Publisher Abingdon PressMy rating is 5 stars.Here is a very uniquely crafted devotional to help followers of Jesus defeat the giants in their lives while also bearing a fruitful life At first, the title threw me as I thought what a crazy title and what s inside to draw me closer to God with depth or is this just another nonsense type of devotional What do I mean by nonsense We have all read, perused or bought devotionals with the hope that our walk will be deepened, challenged and growing Unfortunately, sometimes we come away empty handed as it seems the book lacked depth, meaning and ended up being given away or in file 13.Well, here is one that to me really took me by surprise it s very genuine in content and caused me to dig deep into the Word I also found plenty of Scriptures to look up, journal from and meditate on The chapters each have five days of study under whatever topic is highlighted Then, after a couple of pages of reading, readers are directed to a section titled, Word Study Exercise that has readers looking up several passages in the Bible Afterwards there is brief section titled, Biblical Role Model Ministudy , followed by Heritage Faith Walkers The day s study ends with Small Steps Toward Slaying Giants Then, just like David who picked five smooth stones to slay his giant, the author gives one for us to put in our sling, which is basically ...

    I am pretty excited to share a new book with you jesus and the beanstalkJesus and the Beanstalk Overcoming Your Giants and Living a Fruitful Lifeby Lori Stanley RoeleveldThe book is set up with six daily readings per week, with the sixth day being a Prayer, Reflection Process Day There are multiple chapters with different topics to dig into After each reading there are questions that would be perfect for journalling through Small Steps Towards Slaying Dragons Each chapter is a short read but it delves into the subject of giants in our lives and how to live out our faith I have thoroughly enjoyed reading through this book Such a great reminder of our victory through Jesus.As a homeschool family, we have chosen to make Fairy Tales a part of our regular reading When we started this journey, our curriculum listed books that included fairytales and other myth style stories At first, these stories just seemed like fun stories, but now, I realize that they allowed my children to have their imagination grow and blossom Not only do fairytales paint a picture that allows imagination to grow, but these tales of good overcoming evil reminds us that we are destined for a better place These fairy tales connect us to a desire for good to prevail.The story of Jack and the Beanstalk remind us that the little guy can wi...
