Have you ever felt like there has to be something more? Like there’s something you could or should be doing with your life that’s bigger or better and you don’t know what it is? When asked a question about identity, Billy Graham said that there were three ways to answer that question: There is the person you think you are; the person other people think you are; and the person that God knows you are wants to help you become. The secret of something more is to be person three.
Wouldn’t it be fantastic if you could live the life of God’s perfect and pleasing plans for you; the life of something more? To know the reward and satisfaction of living your calling and leaving an impactful legacy. But how do you do that?
Clips that Move Mountains is a guide to that journey. It is a God inspired, Scripture-rich road map that uses 23 film clips, true stories and real 21st century miracles as illustrations to guide you as you answer life’s toughest questions like:
• Is it logical to follow Jesus?
• What is my purpose and calling?
• How can I find forgiveness?
• How can I live my faith in today’s culture?
• How can I hear God’s voice?
• Who does God want me to be?
• What does God want me to do?
• How can I pray with confidence and authority?
I believe God wanted this book written because even though 79% of American’s identify themselves as Christians, according to a Barna Research Institute study, 72 % of publicly professing Christians could not pass the quiz on the Biblical worldview. People don’t know the true Jesus of the Bible and they don’t know how to access the full power and promises God has included in its pages. God wanted an interactive book that would show people how to find these answers with a personal relationship with Jesus. He’s a creative God and He knew that if a picture is worth a thousand words, a thought provoking or inspiring film clip can be worth a million words. The film clips leave and indelible mark and reinforce the messages that God has for them from the Bible.
I have been an Organization Development consultant facilitating movement for individuals and organizations toward their visionary goals for 30 years. In keeping with my style, it is written as a facilitation, with life application journal sections and exercises. It truly moves the reader forward in their journey.
There are 116 minutes of film and 454 Bible verses peppered throughout the book. On average, the films are from 1-5 minutes long. Films stream from outside clip hosting service or filmmaker’s websites. Many of the short film clips are from popular movies like Facing the Giants, The Lorax and Surf’s Up, or from fantastic Christian films that most people have not yet seen like October Baby and Uncondtional. Others are mini-movies that were created as sermon illustrations for pastors to use in the pulpit. People will remember the messages of these films along with the personal stories of ordinary people who have found their callings, overcome extreme challenges and are living with tremendous impact. My personal stories of my own love story with God and miraculous healing are also included in the book.
I’m so happy that people are growing their faith and finding a personal relationship with God through this book. One person shared that she was healed of a long illness after reading the account of a double miracle healing and praying for God to heal her. God met her in that moment and answered her prayer on the spot. Says one reader: “The book is going to challenge you on what you believe and how you live it out. This book is inspirational and practical. It really helped me cement the way I make my decisions, not based on what the world says but what scripture tells us. I know that you will not be disappointed in reading this book. For every person, whether a believer in Christ or not... there is plenty of wisdom to gain through the inspirational stories and movie clips that are so neatly woven together. Well done Patty!" ~Pete Formica
