The Mission Walker by Edie Littlefield Sundby Book Review

Posted by Leah




Greetings, everyone!!! I have to open this up by saying I saw Edie on Home and Family. She was interviewed and spoke about her book. She was such an inspiration! I say that from my heart. I had just learned just days before that my Mom's cancer was back and spread to her spleen. Her body is already compromised by Primary Biliary Cirrhosis, an auto immune disease. Hearing her story I knew this book needed to get into my Mom's hands. I immediately looked up the book to get the price; then talk to my husband about purchasing the book. I found it talked with him and right now financially it was not within the budget. I said can we please pray about the book because I really feel like this would be a great tool for my Mom. He agreed that we would pray about the book. I hadn't received the list of books available to review yet and I felt in my spirit to wait to choose my book. I waited then the email I was waiting on came in. I looked at the list and there was Edie's book!! I cried, I was so blessed to see this book. God provided the book!!

Now to get into my thoughts and opinions of this wonderful book. I have to say wonderful while it had so many things going on, things that you the reader to absorb. The book kept your attention and you couldn't get to the next page fast enough to see what was going to happen next. We first learned of  Edie's diagnosis and the impact on her family. No matter how difficult Edie's battle became she kept her focus on the Lord. She would say,"Through the grace of God and His medicine, I am healed." This became her constant prayer. Another reminder that the Lord your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory. The Bible encourages us to use every piece of God's armor to resist the enemy whenever he attacks. Prayer is the most powerful of all God's armor. I want to say this was such a fast read; hanging on each word following along to what was coming next. There was a part that was frightening. I feared for their lives in the story. I knew Edie made it out, but just the fear that ran through me I could only imagine what she was feeling when it was happening to her. I felt her pain as she traveled along. I appreciated her endurance and the courage she had to take on the challenges she faced while walking the mission trail. I am encouraged to take this up on my walk with my bone disease and encourage our son to do the same. We now will have our walks together.

I really enjoyed this book; I loved the book. I really didn't want the story to end. I can say I have a lot of friends and family in mind for this book. I will be directing them to purchase this book. If you'd like to purchase a copy click the words The Mission Walker




Grace & Peace,
