{Review & Giveaway} When God is Silent by Dr. Kellie Lane

Today, Mom Loves 2 Read is welcoming Dr. Kellie Lane, author of When God is Silent ~ 

MomBlogger: Dr. Lane, welcome to Mom Loves 2 Read.  It is wonderful to have you with us today!

Dr. Lane: Thank you!  It is a pleasure to be here.

MomBlogger: Dr. Lane, could you please tell our readers a little about your Push, Pray, Persist phrase?

Dr. Lane: I'd love to . . ."'Push, Pray, and Persist' is a phrase I coined because this is exactly what is
required to receive the miracles of God. Life is hard. The journey gets weary. There will be road blocks along the way. Yet we can’t pull over to the side of the road, lift the hood, and say “that’s it, I quit”. No this is when you push even the more. You have to believe that God will repay you for your work in due season. Never stop praying, never stop believing, and never ever give up. Yes things may seem impossible but impossible is the perfect condition for God to release miracles in your life."

MomBlogger:   Thank you so much for sharing with us!  We would love to have you again sometime!

Dr. Lane: A pleasure to be here.  "Be Blessed!"

Book Description
"When God is Silent” confirms through scripture that God indeed hears the cries of
his elect and the broken hearted. The book explains to the reader why he or she may be waiting on the answers to their prayers and how to endure in a season of silence. It also reveals how to recognize "God's answer" if he chooses to answer differently than what we anticipate. The take home message is “ Never Give up! Even if God is not talking he’s still listening”. We must learn to “push, pray, and persist” until we reach the point of breakthrough. God desires to give only the best to his children. We must understand this.



I know now, Lord, why you utter no answer. You yourself are the answer.
—C. S. Lewis

If you’re reading this book, more than likely you are in what is called a pressed place; a place of waiting. Does it seem as if God has forgotten about you? Has everyone else around you begun to celebrate their miracles, yet you are still crying yourself to sleep at night? Are you feeling a
sense of weariness and emptiness? Have you been praying and crying out to God day in and out and still you see no change? Have you found yourself wondering if God has gone on vacation? Have you been contemplating that perhaps what you are believing God for is not in His will? Well if this describes you, congratulations! You are next in line for a miracle. I decree and declare defeat is not your portion; victory is your portion. Receive it, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

What the enemy wants us to believe is that God will never answer our prayers. The kingdom of darkness works overtime as we get closer to our breakthroughs. Satan and
His generals know that if he can get us to lose our focus, we will not be in position when the fullness of time comes and we will miss the blessing. We must know without a doubt that God is faithful and never fails. We must be certain that even if God is not talking, He’s still listening.

For it is written:

But verily God hath heard me; he hath attended to the voice of my prayer.
—Psalm 66:19

Review :
Although I have read a lot of inspirational non-fiction, biblical studies, parenting books and marriage help books written from the Biblical perspecitve, I never cease to find something new in another great book from another author's point of view.

I often find myself saying "yep, that is SO me!"  or something like "I can totally relate" or even "it may not be exactly like what I feel but it sure is similar" or "I know someone who would enjoy reading this too"
I did find myself relating to some of the situations in this book, but I also found it a bit harder to read than I expected.  There were times, especially at the beginning that I just didn't get into the flow of the book.

Overall I did like most of what author Kellie Lane has to say in "When God is Silent" and she really does have some great points to make, but some of it was not quite what I would agree with personally.
I leave it to you to decide - as this is only my personal opinion and many opinions differ from mine.

  1. Thank you for hosting today! Great interview and review!

  2. Thanks for the post of this book and author. I think the book answers a lot of questions for people today who are wondering where God is in their time of trouble. But He is still watching over us and answering prayer in His time.
