"Not Just A Doer But A Doer" by Yolanda Shanks

About the Author: Yolanda Shanks
Multi-published author, speaker, blogger, teacher, wife, grandmother—Yolanda Shanks wears many hats, but the one she most resonates with is her role as an advocate for living life to its fullest.

Shanks’ award-winning first book, Destined to Live, Despite Me, continues to be a source of hope for those battling effects from a prior suicide attempt. It garnered an enthusiastic Kirkus review, which stated the book was “a commendable guide for finding meaning after considering suicide.” 

Her second book, Not Just a Hearer but a Doer (released June 2012) challenges the body of Christ to act upon scripture. In the Fall of 2012, she released a third project, entitled Destined to Live, Despite Me – A Cause to Be Thankful.

"Not Just A Doer But A Doer" by Yolanda Shanks gets 5 stars. This is the second book I have read that she has written and they were both helpful to me.
  In "Not Just A Doer But A Doer" Yolanda Shanks uses short daily devotions that are straight to the point. She gives A Biblical scripture and then she tells the background of what was happening when that scripture was written, then she interpretation and gives us an application point to use.

To be a doer we must be willing to reject our desires and submit our will to His will and desire for our lives. This is not something new for Christians but Yolanda Shanks just makes the point clearer and stronger. Jesus commands us too follow Him in everything and that includes our sufferings.  In some of the devotions she asks probing questions that causes us to (our should) perform a self inventory and examination.
