I am hopelessly and helplessly condemned by my own lust for literature that I recklessly and depravedly buy books with remorseless abandon. My day job is the ever more practical occupation of freelance musician. I'm not rich. Which makes my licentious book purchasing all the more irresponsible.

Paulette Harper delivers tenacious, life-
changing material. Completely Whole gives a very
practical, every day approach to becoming all Christ has
purposed you to be. The book touches on each area of life,
and gives the reader a sense of urgency to tap into one’s
purpose now! By comparing various Biblical characters
and scenarios, Completely Whole walks you through
your past and present, and thrusts you into your Christ-
purposed future. At the same time, Harper lets you know
that the fight isn’t over, but it’s all about how you
process, and handle specific situations. (From the
Ms. Harper has written an inspiring and encouraging book for
those who think they have blown it, are suffering, who are strangers to God and
need to come to the One who can make them whole. Completely whole.
In her book,
Completely Whole, Ms. Harper covers a number of topics that are relevant to
today’s seeker. She begins her book by
looking at life as a whole. Why do
things happen to us? Are our
expectations for a good life realistic?
What do we do when the fairy tale is replaced with painful reality? Ms. Harper gives many biblical examples of
people in the Bible from prophets to kings, their real life afflictions, and
how God used them to make them the whole person he purposed them to be.
She shows how
many of our trials are due to our abandoning God and falling into self-dug
pits. What do we do then? How can we dare approach a God from whom we
turned away? She uses scripture to prove
that no matter how far we’ve run, God is waiting for us to turn around and run
back to Him. She then gives strategies
in how not to look back to where we were and how to fight Satan’s attempts to
defeat us by reminding of our past.
Her book includes
steps to redemption and salvation and how God’s forgiveness makes us whole.
Chapter six is a
beautiful chapter on God’s love for us and how it compares to the worldly love
we are always looking for and turning to instead of our Heavenly Father’s
incomparable eternal love.
She discusses the
power of God’s word, its power and the power of our own words. Other chapters
explore our faith and its integral part in our relationship with God.
with finding God’s purpose for creating us and letting God provide direction to
our life’s path that will allow us to be the complete person he has planned for
us to be.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is beautifully written and I recommend
it as a devotional for anyone who wants to grow, heal and be made completely
whole in God.
I received a free copy of this book by the author.
