BOOK: You Are All That! By Paula White

Among the books I read during the 30-Day Man Fast is 'You Are ALL THAT!' by Paula White. It is a book specially made for people like me. But wait a minute, who am I? Lol. That's what this book is about!

You are ALL THAT: Understanding God's Design For Your Life


This book is one of the oldest in my library, yet it brings new perspectives and principles to a Jesus-loving single woman like me.

Nope, I don't mean it is for only women. It is actually for everyone.

The power of God in this book is amazing, and the power of God in the author, Paula White is amazing.

I have a thing for authentic people - people who share their real personal experience for others to learn and gain insight. Paula White is one of those. She is so real. You can sense that her personality is the same as a writer and in real life. Ever heard her speak? Oh my God! So much energy . . .  lively and anointed.

To own a piece of Paula White's work is a blessing, I will always embrace the words in her book.

As I read through each chapter, it is as though she is speaking directly about my season and addressing the issues in my life. I feel God's presence in this book. I have highlighted paragraphs in certain chapters of the book, which I will eventually read again through the years.

I thought to give you a taste of what I have been reading (Yes, I'll keep reading) in this spirit-giving book, "You're ALL THAT!"

Excerpts from the book:

  • Know What You Need From Other People 
Other people may complement you -- as in,  help you build on your strength or compliment you -- encouraging you by noticing your good qualities. But no human being is single-handedly completing you, no matter how much that person may want to or try to. God has designed us so that it takes ONLY He is capable of meeting our spiritual needs. 


  • Yield To God
You are intricately connected to God and His creation, whether you want to be or not. 
By ignoring God, you don't hurt God. You are hurting yourself. 
By diminishing the role of God IN your life, you don't demean God, you limit yourself. 

  • A Night Of Change
This is a critical point -- God doesn't call you apart to encounter Him with the intention of hurting you, destroying or showing you all your faults. No way! He wants to show you who you really are: fearfully and wonderfully made by God Himself (Psalm 139:14). You are distinct, rare, original, marvellous. You are all that!

I believe these words spoke to you, as they have to me. This is why I hold this book 'You're ALL THAT!', which comprises of 250 pages covering deep truths in each of its 25 chapters, very close to my heart.

So sweetheart, it is a pleasure to tell you that this book is a blessing to have, and a great gift for someone you love. :)

P.s Toke Makinwa's book, On Becoming is actually the rave of the moment. Read it yet?
