Who is on Godâ€™s â€śguest listâ€ť for your life . . . and why?
The answers may surprise you.
touching true stories and inspiring insight Debbie
Macomber takes readers on a journey to discover the
shaping influence others have on us and the power we have
to shape and influence those whose paths cross
Each of us have â€śinfluencersâ€ť
that have affected our livesâ€”some from a distance, some
through word or deed, some through example, be it good or
bad. Often we donâ€™t even recognize the deep impact others
have had and how God has used them to shape us into who we
are. By pausing to recognize these influences we begin to
grasp how Godâ€™s guest list had a purpose far beyond what
we imagined. We begin to see the seeds of influence that
grew into our personal values and
In some people God invites
into our lives, we see only what appears to be painful or
negative influence. We bear the scars of disappointment,
hurt, betrayal, and pain. Here Macomber redirects our
attention, opening our eyes to how those experiences
prompted strength, resilience, resolve, decisions, and
choices about how we would change and who we would become.
In other instances, God has surprised us with just the
people at just the right time to support, teach, lead, or

But perhaps the
greatest treasure this book holds is the power to grasp
our own power to influence others, and even to anticipate
what lives we have yet to touch. In the tradition of How
to Win Friends and Influence People, Macomber casts a
vision to seize every opportunity to be a positive and
faithful influence on others. With this realization comes
the willingness and anticipation to live with the door of
our lives wide open to greet each new life God brings
across the threshold.
God's Guest List
is filled with true stories and rich insight that will
forever change how you see the people in your life.
