5 Star Ratings!

This is not a book to read all at once. It’s one of those books that require thinking about what you just read before moving on to the next chapter.
While there are many personal stories, the focus is not on the author, but focuses instead on what she learned through each experience she shares with the reader.
One of the things that spoke to me was the work of the Holy Spirit in her life. Now, after sending her book to my best friend, I’ve witnessed how the Holy Spirit used this book in her current situation.
Thank you, Sandra for being so open and at times brutally open and honest but tender in your writing. May God continue to bless you and your ministry.

5.0 out of 5 stars   - Very exciting down to earth read with riveting story lines and super helpful devotionals/prayers

I bought 2 copies of this book! I kept one for myself and gave one as a gift to another lady that appreciates devotionals. This book makes a great Mother's Day gift, Birthday gift, or even a "just because" gift. I enjoy the personal accounts and experiences that are tied in with scripture, prayers, devotionals and intimate accounts of personal experiences that we are able to relate to. There is a section devoted to military service which as a Veteran I thought was amazing and thoughtful. This book would be a great gift for USO boxes and each section is easy reading, not too complicated and can be done while in combat to give peace, comfort, understanding and distraction from the war soldiers are facing. Overall a very nice and refreshing devotional! Looking forward to more!

I wholeheartedly connected with my own life’s journey while Sandra Astacio took me on the ride of hers! Truly anointed, she brings a fresh perspective and style that convinced me that I am not alone in my process of becoming all that I am in Christian discipleship. She reveals the components of our lives to develop for Christ’s glory and to live fully-enriched. A must-read to surely be blessed as you hear her candid authenticity through the pages of this well-written book.

This book is chalked full of inspirational scripture and testimonies glorifying the power of God's grace. One woman's story of a life turned off course from unequivocal disaster toward the arms of our lord. I highly recommend the read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Woman After God’s Own Heart

Sandra will touch the lives of millions of women through In Pursuit of Becoming: One Woman’s Journey To Herself and Daughters In Christ, Inc., calling them to heart revival and biblical womanhood. Her love for Christ and His Word is infectious, and permeates her outreaches, conference messages, and book.

Many women live under a cloud of personal guilt and condemnation. Many are in bondage to their past. Others are gripped by fear of rejection and a longing for approval. Still others are emotional prisoners. Sandra reminds women that God provides His Word to be used for guidance in daily living, and that He created you not to just survive, but to thrive.

In this bestseller (my personal opinion), In Pursuit of Becoming: One Woman’s Journey To Herself, Sandra exposes those areas of deception most commonly believed by Christian women—lies about God, sin, priorities, marriage and family, emotions, and more. She then sheds light on how we can be delivered from bondage and set free to walk in God's grace, forgiveness, and abundant life. Sandra offers the most effective weapon to counter and overcome: God's truth!
