    1. I had no idea who Lina Abujamra was when I picked up this book. That was my loss, but she’s definitely on my radar now. She’s a doctor---MD type---that has the time and energy to write. She also maintains an active blog and a speaking ministry. Check this site out in a minute. livingwithpower There’s even some freebies available. What about this book?After admitting that good intentions don’t get it done she says this, “No matter how strong we claim our faith in God is, when life is ha [...]

    2. Lina's passion is contagious! I loved every word in this book, Lina's casual writing style made me feel like we were sitting having coffee together while she told me a story. My favorite line in the book says "Few things are a more powerful testimony than joy when life's circumstances are depressing. That kind of joy cannot be faked. It is God-given, and it will change our world".Lina's joy in the Lord cannot be faked! I liked this book so much I did the group videos that go along with it. It wo [...]

    3. I love how humble and real Dr Lina is. She provides scriptural examples for so many relevant ways that we can live as the Christians God designed us to be, each in our own unique way. I appreciate her realistic approach by acknowledging the 'real-life' Christians that we all are. Several of the chapters spoke to me for the season that I'm currently in right now.

    4. There are some really great nuggets, but the casual, informal language is a little distracting. The sentences and paragraphs switch between the first and second person pronouns regularly.

    5. Resolutions are easy to make. But the Christian life challenges our resolve to stay committed to God by testing our commitments against fear, rejection, and expectations.Dr. Lina Abujamra has given us the blessing of another book, Resolved, written in her inimitable style and with her characteristic passion. Lina has seen life in all its raw reality—where it's from the perspective of an ER doc, a missionary, or a single who wrestles with the church's expectations of singles. Lina tackles ten i [...]

    6. “We are facing an epidemic in the church today,” AbuJamra writes. “There is a deep disconnect between what Christians say we believe and how we live, and it's threatening to destroy us.” (12-13) What we need, she says, is resolve, biblical resolve that's “motivated by a changed life and transformed heart that longs to please and glorify God.” (15)There are ten resolutions every believer must make, she says, to stand strong today. They are areas where we must decide whether we will li [...]

    7. I received a copy of this book through via Baker Publishing Group. (Thank you) This book asks readers to examine their resolve in living out their faith. Abujamra challenges Christians to resolve to 10 things in order to grow closer in their relationship with Jesus. These include: Believe Then It Looks Ridiculous, Love When It's Inconvenient, Obey When It's Not Popular, Yield When It's My Right, Speak Up When It's Easier Not To, Give When I Barely Have Enough, Be in Community When I'd Rather Be [...]

    8. Excellent read. I have read Thrived and loved it as I am a single living out God's plan for my singleness this moment. Resolved is for those that are authentic, purposeful, and determined to stand strong in what they believe. "You long to bridge the gap between what you say you believe and how you live." Are you, am I, living out who I am supposed to be in Christ even when it's hard, not what I want to do, not what someone else wants me to do, but what Christ has already written out for me and i [...]

    9. Lina writes truth with refreshing simplicity and clarity. While I plan to commit to all 10 resolves, the one that struck me most was the resolve to "Have Joy When Life Is Depressing." Lina reminds us that despite the complexity (or frank tragedy) of our circumstances, "we have such reason for joy. Giving thanks when we don't feel like it is an act of faith". Amen! May the joy of the Lord be our strength. I highly recommend this book and plan to share the other copies I am buying with friends! If [...]

    10. Great book. It has lots of motivating stories, both personal and biblical, to stay help me stay resolved in my faith. Lina does a great job of presenting her information without overwhelming the reader.

    11. Great bookI love how Lina breaks down each point using scripture and relatable stories. I highly recommend reading this book and starting the journey to become and remain resolved
