Are You Out Or Are You In? Find Out Here And Enter A Giveaway

It's not often that I can say I know a very special person who happens to also be an author. But I can now. My friend Mandi Cornett has written an amazing book. The book is From Out To In: Our Position In Christ.

Mandi's book is such a joy to me in several ways. First, it's her first published book. How could you not be excited for a friend when they publish their first book? It's been wonderful to see how well it has been received.

Second, it's a great book. Mandi is not a professional writer. She'd be the first to admit that (and she did), but she is a writer filled with passion for what she writes about and she is good at writing that. What she writes about is what is dearest to her heart, her love for God and sharing it with others. Her book focuses on the book of Ephesians and is written the way Mandi communicates. I attend several Bible studies that she teaches and she is able to take deep theological things and communicate them in a way that anyone can understand and apply to their lives. She approaches things in the same way Kay Arthur does, step by step, building as you go.

From Out To In is a book that clearly helps the reader understand that there are only two kinds of people in the world, those who are out and those who are in. We either are not saved or we are. There is no middle ground! She communicates clearly how you can, as she would say, "know that you know that you know" you have truly accepted Christ as your Savior. But she does not leave you there. Throughout the book she communicates how you can be sure of your position in the big scheme of things and how important you are to God.

All the way through the entire book, Mandi takes you back to the Word of God and stands on it, not what she thinks. What she thinks has been formed and grounded in the Word and her desire is that everyone would experience the same thing in their lives. She's very transparent too. Mandi has never been afraid to be open to people about how her life is not perfect, nor is she. She freely talks about how God is working in her and growing her up to be more like Christ.

Mandi was born and raised in a Christian home in Northwest IN and has gone to church all of her life. She came to have a personal relationship with Jesus as a freshmen at Taylor University. It was like a lightbulb went on in her religious mind and heart. She went from having a religion to a relationship with Jesus and has been on a journey, with ups and downs, ever since. Mandi has been married to her husband John for almost 25 years, and they have 3 great children, 1 wonderful daughter-in-law, and a beautiful (and spoiled rotten by her) new grand baby boy.

Mandi is also the director of the ministry Cleanse, Fill Pour Women's Ministry. She speaks at many retreats and women's function every year. You can learn more about the ministry she is involved in HERE!

You can purchase Madi's book on Amazon in paperback or in a Kindle edition. She also has several Bible Study guides that you can purchase for your study time in the Word, including one that goes along with From Out To In. Any of them can be purchased HERE!

I was thrilled when Mandi said she was willing to give three of my readers their own copy of her book. Use the Rafflecopter below to enter.
