Description

Discover how yielding ourselves wholly to God, especially in the midst of challenging circumstances, lends new purpose to our lives.

"Vivian Mabuni is a kind and trustworthy guide through one of adulthood’s secrets: life doesn’t go like you thought it would." (Jen Hatmaker, New York Times best-selling author of For the Love and Of Mess and Moxie)

As women after God’s heart, we honestly desire to please God. We want to be used by him and to experience the peace and fulfillment he wants for us. Yet it’s all too easy to fall into living mechanically, with a rule-based approach to the Christian life, or to focus on getting what we want when we want it. Even when we want to be willing, saying yes to whatever God asks often feels scary, and the distractions of this world get in the way.

Vivian Mabuni knows this all too well, but she’s discovered that open-handed living starts with an intentional posture of the heart. Through surrender to his will, we draw closer to God in a way that makes our day-to-day lives more purposeful, powerful, and pleasing to him.

With Vivian’s warm encouragement in Open Hands, Willing Heart, you’ll learn how to step out in courageous trust as you invite God to give and take - and move and work - in your life as he sees fit. Along the way, you’ll discover true joy and serenity that will carry you through every circumstance.

Critiques

“It’s easy to fall into a rhythm of control, clutching tightly to the desire to blaze our own trails. Vivian Mabuni brilliantly calls us to break the rhythm, relinquish control, and live in a relationship with God above all else, allowing Him to lead, guide, and provide.” (Rebekah Lyons, author of You Are Free)

“Through story and the study of Scripture, Vivian Mabuni reminds us of the power in trusting God and the peace that comes with surrender. Open Hands, Willing Heart helps us confront the barriers we encounter on our journey to trusting God fully and reminds us that God can indeed be trusted with everything that concerns us. Vivian’s voice is at once bold and gentle, vulnerable and full of grace. Reading this book left my heart ringing with a powerful question: What beautiful things will happen when we open our hands?” (Amena Brown, spoken word poet and author)

Open Hands, Willing Heart calls us to let go of our fear in the midst of uncertain or difficult times and instead take hold of God’s glorious plan for our lives. Vivian’s relational, thoughtful, compassionate voice gently walks us further down the path of deepening trust in God, who always works His will for our good.” (Jamie Ivey, host of the podcast The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey and author of the best-selling book If You Only Knew)

Amazing!

Vivian does a wonderful job of illustrating how to live with open hands through many inspiring stories. She beautifully combats many issues facing Christians today and gives practical tools to live more fully into the calling God has placed on each Christ Follower. This would be a fabulous book to study with a group as Vivian ends each chapter with wonderful questions to ponder. Highly recommend this book!!

Total game changer.

Today’s church needs this book! I needed to read/listen to something that would remind me of the bigger life we are called to live as Christians, and Vivian did exactly that and so much more. If you want to wake up from the status quo life, please get this book! She does a great job incorporating interesting personal stories and stories from the Bible, while also challenging the reader to think through application questions at the end of each chapter. Also - the author is the narrator, which is always a nice bonus!

Love this book!! Full of great wisdom and Life Application

Loved this book!! It is full of God’s truth mingled with stories of amazing people living out their faith. I also love all of the practical applications it has for my daily life! Do you struggle with busy-ness? Or challenged by forgiveness? Or processing what to do through trial? Vivian has such great words of wisdom!!

She also provides great and thought provoking questions at the end of every chapter- so it is an ideal book for personal reflection and/or group study.

Vivian reads her own book and her heart and passion for God clearly comes through in this audiobook-even more than in print!!
