Houston, TX -- (ReleaseWire) -- 01/10/2014 -- Thirty-eight years ago, the Bergstroms set out on a unique and courageous mission – making Jesus the CEO of their lives.
‘Our Journey with Jesus’ chronicles their voyage - from sharing ownership in a lucrative family business, to leaving that security behind, selling or giving away everything they owned, and answering a calling that they felt compelled to address.
“It wasn’t easy,” says Don Bergstrom. “But it was the right thing to do. We learned quickly that God would always provide for us, and shine the light on the correct path. It was just a question of trusting Him and trusting our instincts.”
This is the story of one couple who determined to make the Jesus of the Bible the CEO of their lives, their marriage and their home. The journey began when they were married 40 years ago. Within two years they sensed that Jesus Christ was calling them away from the security of a successful family business into a lifetime of ministry. In response to that call, they sold and gave everything they owned away (although they certainly don't believe that God calls everyone to do this). With no visible means of support in those early days, God always made a way! Lessons learned in the beginning that shaped their lives and their faith are still being lived out today. They learned that God is real, the Bible is true, trials can become triumphs, and that every day can become an adventure with Him.
As the author points out, this book is a vital resource for those who may be struggling with their faith, or with their own choices.
“It was such a freeing moment, when we realized what we were meant to do. Not everyone has that moment of clarity, which is why ‘Our Journey With Jesus’ can help so many folks who may be fraught with confusion and who may not know what path they want to take within their own lives.”
Continuing, “Letting Jesus be the ‘CEO’ changed us for the better, and we learned so much about the Bible, about challenges, and about overcoming adversity. My greatest wish is that others will know the peace that we have felt, putting Jesus at the forefront of our lives.”
Since its release, the book has garnered rave reviews.
“This is an amazing little book, chocked full of real-life, modern day examples of God's miracles in the life of the author and his family. I realized after reading it that it was so much easier to trust God for what was going on in my life at the time, due to what I had just read in "Our Journey with Jesus." Highly recommend it whether you are a follower of Jesus or not,” wrote G. Miller.
