Book Review: Awakening by Stoval Weems

Awakening is a church movement started by the ministry of Celebration Church under the leadership of Pastor Stoval Weems. This church starts every year with a 21 day fast to start the year off right. In the book Stoval explains the different types of fasts people undertake for the 21 days, he shares stories of answered prayer and changed lives, and the tremendous impact these 21 days and living a fasted lifestyle have blessed the church to grow from 7 people to over 10,000 in attendance each week in just 12 years.

They have invited other churches across the globe and across denominational lines to join them each year and I would certainly like to  offer this to my congregation in 2013.

The greatest lesson I learned in and from this book is that God uses fasting in us to make room for new things He wants to do in and through our lives. I give this one 5 out of 5 stars.
