The problem with promising God you’ll follow Him wherever He leads you is that you just might have to go.
When her husband returned from a church mission trip and disrupted her tidy, middle-class afternoon with the conviction they should pack up and move to a Mayan village in Guatemala, Marcia Moston had to wonder: faithful or foolish?
On a journey that leads from the highlands of Guatemala to a small Vermont village, Marcia follows God’s call for her husband even though it seems to conflict with her own dreams, requires credentials she lacks, and demands courage she doesn’t feel she has.
Written with humor and insight, Call of a Coward is a candid account of a modern-day seeker and a very real God who makes cowards courageous, ordinary lives purposeful, and dried-up dreams fruitful.
Call of a Coward by Marcia Moston may be one of my favorite reads! As a short-term missionary trying to go where God leads me, the title and description of this book caught my attention. And I’m glad I requested this book! Marcia is very open and honest about her struggles with faith as she follows God’s plan for her and her family’s life. I felt like I was right there with her in Guatemala and Jersey and Vermont! I highly recommend this book!
My favorite quote from the book:
“… the exciting part of traveling with the Lord; you never knew where he might go, but he always made a way. I wanted to embrace his journey, not resign myself to it.”
