  1. Rhoda Kennell

    I loved this book! From the author’s honesty about her own personal life, her struggles and her victories–she’s refreshingly real! But I am also always looking for ways to grow spiritually, to get to know God more, and her book gives some very practical suggestions to shut out the world’s busy-ness, and just BE with God! Some of the suggestions I have already done (the silence and solitude retreat is one of them) and will continue to do, thanks to her practical suggestions on how to make that time more meaningful. She also gave some new ideas that I am really eager to try. I also loved reading her adaptations of some of the stories of women of the Bible–I felt like they came to life as “real women” with real life issues and real faith. It challenged me to do more of the same in my own quiet time with God. Again, this is a very practical book, I felt, and easy to read and understand.

    Spiritual habits used to feel overwhelming and not realistic. That was until I read Transformed, Not Conformed by Missy Eversole! This book helped me to see how doable spiritual habits really are. Missy has a way of drawing the reader in and making you feel like you’re talking with a friend who understands you. I especially loved learning more about the spiritual habit of meditation on God’s word. I started using the app Missy shared about in the book and have grown in my walk with God. It was great to learn ways to enrich the spiritual habits I already do. This book is a breath of fresh air for those who want to grow closer to God. It’s practical and doable. I highly recommend it!

  4. Carla

    The author is warm and inviting in this book. I felt like she was sitting with me and talking to me as a friend sharing her heart. I can identify with the author’s struggle of pleasing people and of going through the motions in her walk with the Lord. How she lost her fire for Christ, but then discovered how to reignite that fire and maintain it.

    I appreciated the author’s approach of walking through the spiritual disciplines that helped to reignite her fire for Christ. I loved how she clarified what Christian meditation is compared to Eastern meditation and how she used this discipline to get through a challenging time in her family. I also appreciated the practical examples of how to utilize these disciplines to go deeper in my own walk with the Lord, as well as the reflection questions at the end of each section.

    The author’s desire for the reader to grow closer to the Lord shines through this book, and she provides the resources to do so. She says, “Now is the time, friends, to be transformed and not conformed. It’s never too late to grow closer to God. He is waiting for you with open arms. Run and embrace Him!” I certainly agree and highly recommend this book!.

    I found this book to be easy reading and very practical. I can relate to that sense of Jesus feeling distant because of my being too busy and scattered. Transformed, Not Conformed, gives tough, yet doable steps, to make transforming changes. The reflection and journal questions are also helpful. My favorite chapter is the one about practicing the spiritual habit of silence and solitude. I love the tips about what to do when it is difficult to clear the mind and focus. “Keep a notebook nearby jot that thought down on a piece of paper, and continue with your silence and solitude time. You will find it easy to get back into your quiet time once it’s written.” Such a good idea and there are many more. I also find the author’s transparency refreshing.

  6. Tama Fortner

    The term “spiritual habits” can be a bit daunting to me. But with Transformed, Not Conformed, I found these timeless and oh-so-transformational habits presented in a way that anyone can easily understand and embrace. Drawing upon her own life’s experiences, Eversole uses personal stories, along with a real and relatable, I’ve-been-there-and-done-that approach to connect with readers. Her advice on how to incorporate such spiritual practices as prayer, meditation, journaling, silence and solitude, and more into my life is truly powerful. This book is a wonderful addition to my library of faith.

  7. Shelly Morrow Whitenburg

    Exhausted and overcommitted…Are you feeling this way? This busy world can absolutely bring us to a breaking point, which is where the author found herself, a few years back. Eversole shares tips and tools that she learned to where she now leads a life that is more balanced, despite the noises of the outside world. Her journey of transformation is beautifully written and the author helps teach the reader that much is found in silence and solitude. Eversole ties in stories from the Bible, and she leads the reader to reflect and journal by asking leading questions to ponder on. This book is a welcomed read in this busy, fast-paced world!

  8. Sarah Geringer

    A great introductory book on the spiritual disciplines for today. If you want to get started on spiritual formation, but aren’t sure where to begin, Missy Eversole gives practical tips. She shares warm, relatable personal stories and breaks down Bible stories with good insight. She chooses the spiritual disciplines that have shaped her most, and guides you on how to work them into your daily life. The book is beautifully designed and flows nicely between chapters. A wonderful first book from this budding author.

    I received a preview copy of Transformed Not Conformed from the publisher.

    Do you feel overwhelmed by life’s demands? Do you long for a deeper walk with Christ? Join Missy Eversole on a journey to the heart of God through the spiritual disciplines of Bible reading, meditation, prayer, silence, and solitude. Her book is practical yet powerful!

    I really appreciate the author’s honesty and candor especially when it came to losing patients while waiting on her kids. I have been there and done that, and it’s nice to know that I am not alone. Learning how to change habits and make the most of our time with God is so important for growth.
