Not Just a Hearer But a Doer





I want to personally applaud the author of this book! “Not Just a Hearer But a Doer” challenged my faith at a time when I needed it most. Yolanda Shanks takes a daily planner design of 31 days. Each day you are taken to a portion of scripture, it’s broken down and served like a gourmet meal. Preaching and teaching today seems focused on what God can do for us – and it is a delightful change of pace to hear the things we need to do for God.  This authors efforts to underscore our responsibility to not only hear Gods word but to do Gods word is powerful and refreshing!

 Every subject is divided into five categories, and at the end space is provided for you to apply w hat you have learned to your own life.  The author shares fundamental truths we all need to be doers of the word!

The book itself is a bright color, and the content is sure to catch your attention. This book is volume one and I for one look forward to reading any subsequent volumes.

I would recommend “Not Just a Hear But a Doer” to any Child of God desiring a closer walk in their relationship with Him.


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.
