3 1/2 stars
From Zero to Christian in Just 35 Years is a relatively small book. In all, there are precisely 96 pages. It’s a biography on the author Lori A Moore. You might think the limited amount of pages would be inefficient for a biography, but Lori managed to successfully pack her 35 years into four chapters. It fits.
I found it fascinating to follow Lori as she fought and struggled to find her calling. Her heart longed to be satisfied, but she would usually find it in all the wrong places. Her family broke apart when she was young and she was often left alone.
She believed maybe there was a God but she didn’t personally know Him. A Christian couple would invite her to church and she often accepted. A neighbor asked her to attend a women’s event and she couldn’t say no. She heard Liz Curtis Higgs speak and was touched by her testimony. Here’s a quote mentioning it: “She explained that she used to live in that pit too and that it was through God’s amazing grace that she was able to break the bondage of that pit.” Soon after that event, Lori accepted Jesus into her life. She escaped the pit that had held her down.
I think Lori’s life is an example of how God can reach anyone and direct their hearts to Him. He can save you from that pit you’re trapped in.
