Description

“This book is like a fresh drink of water for anyone who thirsts for renewed hope.” -Macie Perrault (from the foreword)

Fear. Regret. Mistakes. Life is full of these…but no one likes talking about that, do they? In a culture that thrives on toxic comparison and presenting a shiny social media life, we all downplay our vulnerabilities and struggles. Christa shares raw stories of the mountains faced in her own life.From buying a business in her second month of marriage and pursuing an unconventional adoption plan, to navigating the trials of financial hardship and facing the complexities of motherhood, Moving Mountains is a testimony to the power of a God whose love never fails to move mountains we could never move on our own.

  1. Ashley Slone-Banion

    Wow! This book moved me in ways most books cannot. The way Christa writes about her fears, her struggles, her hope, her faith, and just everyday life is so powerful. I related to so much of her story and felt myself becoming inspired and motivated to make 2020 the best year yet. I felt this book deep in my bones. I actually read through this book twice. It’s nice reading about other people you can relate to. It definitely renewed my faith and my confidence in myself. I would recommend this book to anyone. It’s a great read especially for the start of a new year and decade. Anything is possible, and so is moving mountains.

    With a background in social work, Christa is a passionate mom, advocate for the fatherless, and storyteller! This book is her heart and her story. It’s a story of family and adoption. A story of broken dreams and of hope in the midst of brokenness. A story of God taking all of the seemingly ill-fitting pieces of their lives and connecting them together in a way only He can. A story of the Lord moving impossible mountains and thousands of miles to bring their little family together. This is a great book for families considering adoption and families already well down the path of adoption, but it’s also a great book for anyone looking to pray big prayers and watch God move mountains in their lives this year. You need this book on your January reading list as you jump into 2020!

    Moving Mountains brought me light in a hard time. It is written with love, heartache and humour. I feel like I know the Jordan family. We connected as I read their journey and I am confident there are is something for everyone to relate to in this book.
    Easy, smooth read. Highly recommend!

  4. Kelli Belt

    This book is about one family’s faith journey through life’s mountains- the one’s they thought were too big, the ones no one wants to talk about, and the ones they thought might destroy them. On a personal level it reminded me that God is bigger than my circumstances and more importantly my mistakes. Christa’s openness was as if we were sitting down for coffee and she was sharing her heart and encouraging me at the same time. It made every story, every account of God’s provision so much more powerful. It encouraged me to release my own shame that convinces me I need to play small and instead trust God has a plan to use my own passion and gifts for His glory. The book challenged and encouraged me to see the mountains in my own life through a lens of Hope.

    Such an encouraging read!
    What a refreshingly honest book! I appreciated and loved how vulnerable the author was in sharing about her marriage, adoption, and her faith. She is a great storyteller!
    As an adoptive mom, I really enjoyed reading about their whole experience with international adoption. While every experience is different I still felt a connection to her and could easily relate to the things she shared.
    I finished the book feeling encouraged! Encouraged by her faith in God through some trying and complicated circumstances and encouraged to see God move some mountains in my life.

    A raw and vulnerable look at how our experiences and decisions shape us but do not have to define the trajectory of our lives. I loved reading about how the mountains in our lives play such and important and valuable role in growing and teaching us and those around us. Christa authentically tells her story in such an encouraging way. No difficult topic is off the table – marriage, adoption, parenting, running a business, and making financial decisions, she bares it all in a way that makes you feel like you’re not alone in your own challenged and missteps. Read this book! You’ll learn important truths about yourself and those around you. And you might just start to appreciate your past and present mountains in a new way.

  7. Elena

    This book was really a great read – i finished it in one sitting! The author did a nice job of summarizing her lived experiences while also reflecting on Gods promises and making this into a book everyone can relate to!

  8. Kiersten

    This book is one of the most relatable books I’ve ever read. Moving Mountains is raw, encouraging, and powerful. Reading this book helped me realize that I’m not alone in my struggles and I found Christa’s words and testimony so comforting. Definitely recommend this book!

  9. Jacquelene Hayes

    I loved how amazing this book was. I am not a parent by adoption and yet this is still so relevant. I love how vulnerable and real Christa is and how she is able to connect with all!

  10. Jenn

    This book is exactly what I needed at this very moment in our adoption journey. It gave me fresh hope and helped renew my faith. The author is so raw and vulnerable immediately drawing you in, making it a very easy read. Highly recommend!

  11. Heather Dempsey

    Christa beautifully describes her own journey, which includes international adoption, financial struggle, loss, and heartbreak, as one of learning to trust God and depend upon him. She describes God as the mountain mover, who can do more than we ever dreamed. This book is a great read for anyone who has adopted/is adopting, has ever experienced financial hardship, not known the next step to take, or basically has ever had any issue at all.

  12. Brandi Ebersole

    I loved the way that this book encouraged both get up in your own circumstance and allowed room for there to be pain in the process. Christina is a wonderful storyteller, we are all honored to hear from her.

  13. Sarah Damoff

    This story is a testimony of the early years of marriage and of seeing God’s hand in all the circumstances and curveballs of life. The author bravely writes with raw authenticity and honesty that anyone can relate to and learn from. From the formation of family through adoption to knowing pain is not wasted to trusting God’s provision when it seems impossible to the pursuit of wisdom to the grasp of humble grace to the embrace of God-given gifts and skills, this testimony has encouragement for all of us. The author shares her heart on these pages as if the reader is sitting and having coffee with her. Highly recommend!

  14. Lanaya Graham

    Christa shares her life and her heart with the reader right from page one. This isn’t a book about one specific type of life- but rather it can apply to anyone who is learning to trust God, not matter their circumstances! Christa has a sweet heart to serve others, and I know that if you read this book you will feel like you’ve made a new friend. If you are considering adoption or have adopted a child this book will be especially encouraging to you!
