Book Review - Ask Me Anything


When God calls you to make an impact, feelings of fear, doubt, and insufficiency seem to automatically show up. As a matter of fact, they have been making appearances since the beginning of time in the lives of people like Adam and Eve, Elijah, Peter, and many others. And during those times:  

  • God asked Adam and Eve, "Where are you?" as a checkpoint for their relationship with Him.
  • God asked Elijah, "What are you doing here?" to bring him out from the places of depression and frustration.
  • Jesus asked Peter, "Do you love me?" to restore their relationship.

In Ask Me Anything, Lord, Heather C. King reminds you that God can use questions in Scripture to reveal the true motives and intents of your heart, challenge your thinking, and help you overcome. Exploring some of the encounters God had with people throughout the Bible and sharing her own experiences, King encourages you to draw closer to God, receive the fullness of His blessings, and boldly move forward.

This soul-searching book includes personal reflection questions, group discussion topics, Scripture memory verses, suggestions for life application, and prompts for journaling-a perfect resource for women's small group study.  


Heather C. King is a Bible study teacher, women's ministry leader, and blogger with a desire to help others apply God's Word to the clutter, noise, and busyness of everyday life. Heather lives in Virginia with her husband and two children.

"God took me through a season of asking me these questions from Scripture and searching my heart deeply.  He worked with gentleness and grace to purify my heart and deal with misplaced motives and attitudes, as well as reassure me in places I felt insufficient and overwhelmed.  I'm not alone in this.  People in the Bible wrestled with the same issues like control, God's timing, and relational conflict, just like we do today.  It was God's questions that helped them and, I believe, can help us, too."

"As a long-time Christian who grew up with Sunday School flannel boards and lessons from the Bible, I also wanted to share a new perspective on these biblical accounts for those who have read them often and maybe even studied them before.  God taught me so much from this study and I wanted to share that with others" says Heather.

This is one of the most powerful books I've read in a long time. I think because of my present situation of recovering from my serious surgeries. This book really made me see that I can still use me where I am and how I am. Not only that, but the situations we are in, are usually to grow us so we can be used more fully by Him...we only have to be open to His prompting!

I have found myself digging deeper into the Word and also digging deeper into my heart because of the promptings of this book. I really love the journal prompts because I am already someone who keeps a journal. These prompts, however, were not just fluff but deep, meaningful prompts that made me think how I am living my life for the Lord.

I really liked how she used different people from the Bible to illustrate how God can use those that seem unusable. He will often use the weak - not the seemingly strong. I also love how the author shows that we are able to do so much more through God than we can even imagine.

I love this book! It's a book that I will read again and again and will become a permanent part of my library. I just can't say enough wonderful things about it and I know it will enrich your life as much as it did mine!
