    One thought on “The Strength of Mercy: Making a Difference in the World One Child at a Time”

    1. I liked this book. According to the rating system, I guess that means 3 stars even though that looks like a "bad" rating. It's not that it's a bad book or that it wasn't touching. I found this book to be a beautiful narrative of one family's journey in trusting in the Lord and how that led to a lifelong ministry of adoption. Probably the reason I didn't like it more was due to a vague expectation that it would speak more to adoption than to the family's personal experience. This memoir does offe [...]

    2. Page 1:"Nothing touches me more than witnessing the "birth" of an adopted child into his or her new family. These tender transactions of the heart move even the most stoic bystander. They exemplify the power of a love that knows no borders or boundaries, a love that unites people across cultures and lands.""Adoption is an act of mercy that originated as part of God's plan to bring us home, into His family."Page 9:"It was almost a game our family played with me every time I would watch a program [...]

    3. For those of you familiar with All God’s Children International, here is a book that documents its humble origins, written by Jan Beazely, one of the main instruments in getting this mission off the ground.It’s hard to step out in faith sometimes, but we’re left with no excuse after watching the Beazely family make one faith-filled decision after another, following God’s guidance like stepping stones. The Strength of Mercy is the story of how a girl named Heather took a curious path for [...]

    4. I read the 25th anniversary edition but I couldn't find it on . I enjoyed the first part of the book, and having adopted one child and in the process of adopting a second, I could relate with the story in many ways. I appreciated how open she was with expressing how God was a part of her process. In the 25th anniversary edition it also includes a few pages written by Hannah, the girl adopted from Romania, and a story about Hannah's birthmother. The stories are good, but towards the end of the bo [...]

    5. I couldn't have loved this book more!!! Seeing how God led this family to their adoption journey and the faith of their following is so heartwarming. I may even have to read this one again someday! Kept me wanting to read to see what and where it was going next. Would recommend to anyone learning or wondering about adoption. Or even faith. Their following and their faith in God couldn't be stronger.

    6. I appreciated the truths founded in Scripture and honesty that the author shared. It is an autobiographical account and if you are encouraged by personal testimonies, then you will like this book. It was written in the 90's and it shows. I honestly felt like I was reading a letter from my mom. Nothing wrong with that necessarily, but it has a very motherly and serious tonejust don't expect the usual wit/sarcasm from modern writers.

    7. Phenomenal anecdotal look at God's heart for the orphan. Incredible Scriptural references, amazing story and wonderful insight into the tragedy that is the worldwide orphan crisis. There are an estimated 150,000,000 orphans in the world today. This story shows how we can reverse it one child at a time. Please read.

    8. Incredible story of obedience to God's voice and patience through carrying out His will. In a time where my good friends are adopting internationally it was a great read to try and come alongside some of what they may be going through. I definitely reccomend this book. It's a quick read.

    9. Such an inspirational story- and it's true! God has not forgotten us or the rest of his children. He is here with us, making a difference when we cannot see the way. This book tells of one ordinary family's walk with God and how he used them to save a nation.

    10. Great insight into how adoption can change an entire family! The openness and honesty of the entire process is told so wonderfully. I love that the whole focus is on the will of God, and not the will of man.

    11. A beautiful story but just too preachy. I didn't need every half the Bible written back to me and that just doesn't sound like something I would say.

    12. I love reading stories of how others came to adopt their child. This was great and also contained some good Biblical truths along the way.
