A few months ago I picked up the Kindle version of Christine Caine’s book Undaunted when it was on sale for around $2. I’ve heard her speak a couple of times (via video), but had not read anything she wrote. I had finished reading another book and wasn’t sure what to read next. I was flipping through my library on my Kindle and realized I had Undaunted. I’m so glad I read it.
Christine Caine is a powerful, passionate speaker and that voice carries over into her writing. In Undaunted she shares some of her own personal challenges, revealing some struggles she had in her past and how that carried over into her life as a speaker, wife and mother. (If you haven’t read the book yet, I don’t want to take away from her story). I appreciate her transparency in sharing her story and what lessons God taught her through them.
I started reading the book about a week before the week of camp I was going to lead. Much of what she shared in her book fit into our theme for the week. I shared part of her story during our first campfire time where we set up the theme for the week.
All of us have different struggles. Even if our difficulties are different from what Christine Caine shares in her book, how she responded to them will be an encouragement to you. God wants to use us despite our flaws and Undaunted clearly shares that message.
