Overview
Maybe you've never asked the question out loud, but you've wondered. You do the things that look good on paper: read your Bible, pray, attend study groups and go to church on Sundays.

But you aren't convinced you really know Him.

Angie Smith understands, because she had run circles around the same paths searching for Him, frustrated at her lack of progress. And she probably would have continued to do so had it not been for one realization that changed everything.

She wasn't following God; she was trying to catch up with Him.

And without realizing it, you may be as well.

It's a distinction that affects every aspect of our lives with Christ, and it begins with learning where we've relied more on man's explanation of God than God Himself.

So many requirements, so many rules, and so much guilt where there is supposed to be freedom. It's the reason you wonder if you've measured up, and the nagging voice that tells you you're a failure as a Christian.

Three simple words changed everything for Angie, and she believes they can do the same for you.

Stop chasing God.

Concerned about the sincerity and strength of her Christian faith, Smith (Mended), the wife of Selah lead singer Todd Smith, feels like she's reaching out for a distant and unattainable relationship. She worries that she will never achieve the same closeness that she thinks other Christians to have with God; she's just "chasing God." The author, who is also a blogger and speaker, comes to some revelations and more realistic assessments of her situation in this conversational book geared toward people like her who doubt their faith because the expectations they hold themselves to are too lofty. Smith eventually discovers that it's not all about the Bible studies and prayer lists; it's more simple—she needs to stop trying so hard. Smith's conversational reflection offers Christian readers a respite from worrying so much about the depth of their faith and instead gives them the opportunity to make a "course correction" that gives them more faith in their faith and their God. (Jan.)
