Image result for the power of a half hour

I just finished The Power of a Half Hour by Tommy Barnettt. I have enjoyed two books in the past by his son, Matthew Barnett, and could now wait to read this one.

The idea behind the book is to "Take Back Your Life Thirty Minutes at a Time". Each chapter is quick to read and then there is an accompanying Personal Action Plan that goes along with each chapter. This is the kind of book that you do not have to sit and read straight through, from beginning to end quickly, in fact I would recommend that you do not. Each chapter is filled with a lot of thought provoking ideas and challenges and if you truly want to get the most out of this book, I would recommend taking time to sit and pray with each chapter. 

Mr. Barnett speaks frankly in this book, sharing many person stories, which I love. It is not just a how to book. I love this from Chapter 6 Make a Regular Connection; "Thirty minutes alone with god will change your life. Do it regularly, and you will be a new person. God will never waste your time! Even if you are merely quiet and still in His presence, you will emerge a changed person. The beauty of such a commitment is that any time you have a free half hour is time you can use to pursue an intimate connection with God"

If you are one who loves to have get together with others and go through a book, I did this for a few years with a group of amazing women, there is a Small Group Study Guide in the back.

I received a copy of this book from Blogging for Books. All opinions are 100% mine.
