We often face situations in life that are hard. Whether it be a job loss, a difficult marriage, or problems with the kids—harsh storms come, and we can quickly feel overwhelmed, even desperate.
In the beginning of creation, God entered the darkness and void and displayed his turnaround nature. He spoke words that turned darkness into light and filled the emptiness with fruitfulness. His turnaround power brought order into the chaos. In the same way, God enters our lives with the power of his turnaround ability and offers not just a slight improvement but a complete turn around.
Turnarounds by their nature are radical. They bypass nice and sensible, they freak out the orderly, and they do not line up with agendas. But turnarounds reveal our miraculous Savior to a messed-up world.
Using examples from her own life and those of biblical characters, international speaker and teacher Charlotte Gambill offers that God is more than just a little bit of help, he’s all the help; we need. It’s time for us to fully understand that there is nothing that God can’t turn around!

- Review by tom
My favourite sentence from the book "Ultimately our ability to turn anything around depends on our willingness to accept the responsibility for the changes that need to be made." WOW - Imagine the power of a life in surrender to God's principles and the possibilities that could produce.
Thank you, thank you, thank you Charlotte for writing what you have truly lived.

- Review by Heather
"The greatest turnarounds always start from within our own hearts and lives."
"The more settled and satisfied we become with our lives, the more we can develop a turn aversion. We gradually allow our satisfaction to replace our seeking, and without the chaos crisis can bring or the drive that despair places in our lives for God's intervention, we fail to see a need for God to transform anything around."
"All too often like Abraham we decide the ending before God does. We count ourselves out of God's turnarounds for reasons that make no difference to a God who has no limitations. Age was not a hindrance to God nor was physical condition. God's selection is not based on any of the criteria we may create."
This book was exactly what I needed to read at this time. It may be exactly what you need as well. Maybe you are trying to manage your own direction.
Charlotte uses biblical examples and examples from her own life to encourage you where you are, & to remind us that as believers our lives are not our own when we surrender to the Most High Living G-d.
