REVIEW OF LEARNING TO SOAR BY A.WILLIS JR & M. WILLIS

Learning to Soar: How to Grow Through Transitions and Trials
Among life's uncomfortable situations, God provides incredible blessings - if you are willing to get out of the nest and trust in Him.

Avery Willis and his grandson Matt Willis write in Learning to Soar how God uses hardships in your life to align with His purpose, and the result will allow you to "soar." Just as a mother eagle stirs her nest to encourage her eagles to fly, God "stirs your nest." With the forward by Rick Warren and the preface by Henry Blackaby, this experience will allow you to grow in new ways toward spiritual maturity.

Discover incredible blessings in unpleasant circumstances.

• Encourage you to leave your comfort zones

My Thoughts-

Learning to Soar is appropiate for every step of your life. As a teenager, the book has helped me prepare for change. As I enter college in a couple of years the information discussed in the book will help me prepare for a different and possibly stressful life. The book is very easy to read and the scripture passages reinforce the information presented. The questions at the end of the chapters helped me to think about my life and how I can improve it.
