TWELVE INCHES: Bridging the Gap Between what You Know about God and how You Feel by Patricia Holbrook [REVIEW]


“I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” JOHN 10:10

This verse prompted a revolution in my spiritual life. After being a Christian for several years, I was confronted with the truth about my spiritual life. While meditating on that verse, I realized my life was not spiritually abundant at all. What followed was a deliberate pursuit of the abundant life that Jesus promised His followers.

My story is similar to many other Christians’, who know what the Bible says about their God, but have a hard time applying His Truth to their lives. I realized that there were habits, attitudes and people in my life that were preventing me from fulfilling my full potential. These issues needed to be addressed if I were to achieve fulfillment in life.

Twelve Inches is the actual distance between one’s brain and one’s heart. The book is designed as a practical blueprint to an abundant life, written by someone whom many will relate to. It is a Biblical, tested and proven blueprint to an abundant life in Christ. It does not merely expose problems without helping the reader find solutions. It is a step-by-step, Scripture-inspired plan for anyone who wants to live out the promises that God has laid down in His Word, regardless of life’s circumstances or personal limitations.

The ultimate objective of this book is to take the reader from a life of little consequence for God’s kingdom to one that shines brightly for Jesus in action, faith and testimony.
