Having personally met Juana Mikels, I can attest her to the fact that the Spirit of the Lord simply flows through her life and on to everyone she meets. I am excited to be reading her first book, Choosing Him All Over Again: A Story of Romance and Redemption. From the back cover:
She has everything that is supposed to make a young woman happy: handsome husband, dream job, new home, great vacations, fun friends, and plenty of money. But she isn’t happy. Leaving husband, house, and friends behind, Juana begins her search for peace and happiness in earnest. Mistakenly, she thinks all she needs is “Mr. Right,” but instead, Juana finds Jesus and the peace she has always longed for. As she grows in her faith and her desire to please God, God rekindles in her heart a longing to be reconciled to her husband. However, the tables are now turned her husband doesn t want Juana back. Juana learns how to let go and trust God, to let Him go to work and do what seems like the impossible . . . but will her marriage be restored?
What others are saying:
I wish all those whose marriages are in trouble could know Juana’s story.
-Elisabeth Elliot, From the Foreword to Choosing Him All Over Again, and Author of Quest for Love and Passion and Purity
Choosing Him is a transparent testimony of the power of God to change lives and marriages. Juana so beautifully weaves her story of brokenness, as she unravels the mystery of God’s way in marriage. God used Juana’s search to find herself -to find Him! And now, she is sharing all the wisdom she learned on her journey with us! I believe marriages will be saved and changed for God’s glory with the message of this book.”
–Courtney Joseph, Author of Women Living Well
Her honesty and transparency is a rare treasure, allowing others the chance to relate and not feel so alone in marital struggles. Juana’s words are full of life-giving encouragement, just the kind of inspiration couples desperately need today.
-Jennifer Smith, Author of The Unveiled Wife and Wife After God
God writes the best love stories–and Juana’s is one of the best! When Juana was trying to write her love story, she failed miserably. But when she turned it over to God, He did the impossible.
