I ll be honest, I was a little wary of this book because of the title, but once you read it, you get it This isn t a whimsy book Max Davis has no qualms about talking about some pretty serious issues Legalism and a common outlook on Christianity fill the pages It will definitely shed light on how non believers can view us Christians Ahem, we need to work on that This book also highlights false beliefs that we have tacked on to the Word over the years Yeah, we REALLY gotta stop doing that He himself is an example of the damage that false theologies can do to a person It s VERY eye opening The best thing this book has to offer Beautiful, real stories that people from all different walks of life have experienced These stories of miraculous hope are AMAZING They WILL give you goosebumps I was completely in awe over many stories, including Donna s you HAVE to read this book, especially for her story If you re a little tired of the watered down gospel that s being spread around these days, take a look at this book No doubt, this books has proof that the Lord is still doing amazing things We CAN be a part of this too We just have to make that decision and allow Christ to use us to affect the lives of others in a positive way Oh, and you ll definitely find out who that green eyed brunette is I was blessed to received this book in exchange for a review

    I was fascinated by the title of this book, and loved reading it I found so many great quotes throughout Here is one of my favorites Religion is man s way working hard to try to be accepted by God True Christianity is about receiving what God has done for us and His Spirit coming inside us to have an ongoing relationship with us To me, those two sentences sum up the lesson of the entire book We need to receive God s grace, let His Spirit live within in, and let it change our entire life I was fascinated by the title of this book, and loved reading it I found so many great quotes throughout Here is one of my favorites Religion is man s way working hard to try to be accepted by God True Christianity is about receiving what God has done for us and His Spirit coming inside us to have an ongoing relationship with us To me, those two sentences sum up the lesson of the entire book We need to receive God s grace, let His Spirit live within in, and let it change our entire life Everything about us should reflect His unconditional love.The discussion of people pleasing and what a HUGE burden it can be truly hit home for me I ve spent pretty much all of my 55 yrs trying to make everyone around me happy from parents to teachers to husbands to children Between some real life events and the things I read in this book, I think 2017 is going to be a year of real, lasting change in that area I highly recommend this book to every Christian I will be personally recommending it to those near and dear to me over the next few weeks, and will gladly share my copy with anyone who has an interest in reading it

unexpected surprise increased my curiosity about the contents I mean, when someone takes that much care to ensure an engaging cover, what did he do with the content Being a skeptic by nature, I was not expecting to enjoy this book as much as I did The back cover correctly states thatThose hurting and weary from worn out religion are longing for a fresh touch from the living JesusMax Davis challenges us to dothan simply receive God s grace we need to allow grace to soften, change, and shape us.Having finished the book, I can honestly say that this book softened this weary woman on some level and fed my soul It reminded me of God s greatness, His amazing sense of timing, His ability to work all things together for the good of those who love Him, and His creating me to be, well, ME As Davis says, Don t try to be normal It ll mess you up p 74.Something I have struggled with for the majority of my adult life is people pleasing As the oldest child of a pastor, I was raised to please I was in many ways raised to think that I could control how people saw me and my family, and so I needed to act a certain way, talk a certain way, eat a certain way, and I did I was a good kid with a sincere desire to live my life according to the rules and guidelines set before me, and for the most part, I did just that.What I never realized is that living my life to please others was a VERY HEAVY burden, and I was already starting to cultivate that same desire to people please in my only son Thankfully, a few years ago, God began the process of showing me this tendency and helping me let go of my insatiable need for approval.I wish I could tell you that the transformation from people pleaser to God pleaser was instantaneous, but it was not I am definitely a work in progress During the last year, the Lord has been showing me over and over again that I need to be myself This message has come through sermons, songs, books, journaling, friends, and even strangers Most recently, that message was drilled home to me by Davis book He writes As Christ followers, we want to be distinct individuals with the character of Jesus flowing out of us It s a process that will never be ultimately complete until this life is overJesus wants to free us to be who we were created to beI ve learned that when I embrace my uniqueness, the power of God is released in my life to stand and do what He s called me to do Your divine calling and identity is unlocked when you dare to believe in the unique individual that God created you to be p 64 Created to Be UniqueIt s not very easy to cease seeing yourself through the eyes of others In fact, it s downright hard But Max Davis is right, and his teaching is sound God did not create us to be little robots with no sense of individuality He created us and broke the mold Our uniqueness equips us to fulfill our God ordained purpose life, and nobody else can do what we do the way we can do it.The idea that we have to look a certain way or act the same way everybody else does in church is a device of the enemy to prevent us from being the unique man or woman of God that He created us to be God wants to put us in unique places and situations so we can carry His resurrection life to those around us, changing the atmosphere as we go p 176 What I was reminded of while reading When Jesus was a Green Eyed Brunette is that God didn t just create me He created me in His image for His glory And the only way I will be able to bring Him glory is by and this is very scary for me to admit being who he created me to be myself My imperfect, always growing self I have to be willing to show up and be seen, to live and learn and become who He wants me to be, and lean into the process trusting that He is working everything out because I love Him so muchwell, actually, because He loves me so much.And when I embrace His love and allow it to fill my heart when I let go of people pleasing and lean into His will I am filled with a peace that passes all understanding, and I am freed to love other people like God does And that love overflows from a heart full of love and purpose which comes straight from the Creator Himself That type of love is patient and kind.It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud It does not dishonor others, it is not self seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres Love never fails 1 Cor 13 4 8a I highly recommend When Jesus was a Green Eyed Brunette not only for yourself, but I also think it would make a great gift for someone who is struggling with knowing his or her purpose in life I plan to have my teenage son read this, as I am confident it will have a tremendously positive impact on his life.https www.youtube.com watch v AHIHrDisclosure of Material Connection I received one orof the products or services mentioned above

    We, as believers, know that Jesus exists in the world, but He might not be as we would imagine Him to be For some, He might show Himself as a homeless man in need of a new pair of shoes, He might be a pastor of a church who is dying from cancer despite all the prayers of his congregation, and He might even be a green eyed brunette It isn t Jesus really, as you might think, but it is the Spirit of Jesus living inside someone that shows us what Jesus is He isn t religious but has come to have a We, as believers, know that Jesus exists in the world, but He might not be as we would imagine Him to be For some, He might show Himself as a homeless man in need of a new pair of shoes, He might be a pastor of a church who is dying from cancer despite all the prayers of his congregation, and He might even be a green eyed brunette It isn t Jesus really, as you might think, but it is the Spirit of Jesus living inside someone that shows us what Jesus is He isn t religious but has come to have a loving relationship with us Some people get all caught up living their lives under such a microscope of scrutiny of God that they know they will never be good enough That is living under legalistic rules of a religion and not what Jesus camethan 2500 years ago to do and that is establish a personal loving relationship with each one of us Grace is what we all needof and Max Davis latest book, When Jesus Was A Green Eyed Brunette, shows us everyday how we fail to see it when it does come in the smallest of things that happen to us He shares intimate stories of how seeing Jesus at work in the lives of others transformed who Jesus was to him In doing so, it changed how Max would live out the rest of his life and connect with others along the way to change them There are moments in this book when you will laugh and others that have you on the edge of your chair ready to cry and I believe the message is different for each one of us It will be a personally journey of your own to see where in your life you needof Jesus love and grace and how it can open you up to new freedoms in your walk of faith with a deeperintimate relationship with Jesus There are so many amazing quotes and stories that they will all inspirereading I m sure in the future butimportantly it will wake you up out of your spiritual slumber As Davis puts it, Jesus is very much alive today and still does incredible things sometime supernatural things through us I received When Jesus Was A Green Eyed Brunette by Max Davis compliments of Worthy Publishing and FlyBy Promotions Propeller LLC I love how this book weaves personal stories of people s faith in Jesus showing up in ordinary people that reveals to us that He knows us and is fully present in our every day circumstances, especially in our difficulties Perhaps a quote from John Bunyan The Pilgrim s Progress sums up the book best, In times of affliction, we commonly meet with the sweetest experiences of the love of God For me, this was a breath of fresh spiritual air and well worth a 5 out of 5 stars This will be a permanent part of my personal library, one I know I will reference often

    When Jesus Was a Green Eyed Brunette Loving People Like God Does by Max Davis is a collection of stories of people who have donethan just tell others about Jesus but have actually displayed the personification of Jesus to others You have heard the phrase, be the Hands and Feet of Jesus, and this is exactly how these people have chosen to live their lives But it starts with a person first allowing themselves to be transformed by Jesus.The book opens with a remarkable story of an encou When Jesus Was a Green Eyed Brunette Loving People Like God Does by Max Davis is a collection of stories of people who have donethan just tell others about Jesus but have actually displayed the personification of Jesus to others You have heard the phrase, be the Hands and Feet of Jesus, and this is exactly how these people have chosen to live their lives But it starts with a person first allowing themselves to be transformed by Jesus.The book opens with a remarkable story of an encounter with a young woman in a grocery store What Max intended as a genuine outreach of compassion turned into a poignant lesson on truly trusting in God in all circumstances It also reminds me that learning to be content in all things is muchthan just a refrigerator magnet verse but an actual lifestyle.It s not until chapter 3 that we actually meet the green eyed brunette who had and continues to have such an impact on the life of Max Davis When he met her, he discovered that there are people who simply lve their lives as a follower of Jesus with no judgement or condemnation of others, but because they are being obedient to the call on their life Accecptance of others but unwilling to compromise seems a bit rigid, so perhaps it s better to say that she was a light in the darkness, showing a better way but the Light was the reflection of Jesus The book, only 208 pages, is filled with stories of people whose lives reflected the light of Jesus to others and made a profound impact by simply trusting in God and following Him closely There are also stories of trusting God and waiting patiently when instinct is to take another action One story in particular was a reminder that our parental instincts to protect our adult children is when we must lean even closer into God as He places people just where they need to be He loves our families eventhan we do Finally, there is the lesson of listening to the Voice of God and obeying even if you don t really want to obey what you hear You may not see an immediate difference, but you can be sure that you were used if God called and you responded But there are times when you see a radical change Sometimes you may be the only Jesus someone sees so be prepared to always let God love others through you Jesus is very much alive today and still does incredible things sometimes supernatural things through us Max Davis Disclosure in accordance with the FTC s 16 CFR, Part 255 Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising Many thanks to Propeller Consulting, LLC for providing this book

    I wasn t sure what to expect from this book For some reason, i was thinking it was a story, but quickly found out otherwise.The beginning of the book is Max Davis s life experiences how God lead him to become a writer A LOT of talk about this Green eyed Brunette which sort of got on my nerves a bit It s why I gave it 3 stars instead of 4 I think the first few chapters just didn t hold my attention It was just like reading someone s biography it just didn t flow easily for me Exampl I wasn t sure what to expect from this book For some reason, i was thinking it was a story, but quickly found out otherwise.The beginning of the book is Max Davis s life experiences how God lead him to become a writer A LOT of talk about this Green eyed Brunette which sort of got on my nerves a bit It s why I gave it 3 stars instead of 4 I think the first few chapters just didn t hold my attention It was just like reading someone s biography it just didn t flow easily for me Example this talk about the green eyed brunette was so much of the story, but then it was like in a hot second, we found out her name that they married WHAM BAM It was just odd how after referring to his wife like that for so long, the deliverance of her name that they were married was just short ended Hard to explain Again, to me, it the was flow Off putting.I almost gave up on the book but somewhere about half way through, I really really started loving it There were stories from other people their experiences with God they were so powerful Some of the stories of people dealing with problems, health issues even impending death so moving I loved the stories of how powerful the Word of God is the illustrations between a bonsai tree a red oak I ll never forget those example will never look at those trees again the same.Some of the book is repetitive in the things that most people that have been in church for awhile have heard like how each disciple has died how they could have easily said they didn t believe in Jesus but I m sure if a new believer was picking up this book, it may be a first time they saw this, so I respect its there.In the end, I really had a change of heart about the book glad I kept pushing on reading it
