“Let Your Life Count is another zinger from Donna Partow. Every chapter challenges both my thinking and my actions. Donna has something to say to everyone: the new Christian, the seasoned believer, and the still-searching. Her stories about real people, her examination of Scripture, and practicality make Let Your Life Count a catalyst for growth, beyond your average devotional or study book. She seems to be able to put her finger on ‘the next thing you should consider’ in your faith journey. Her excitement jumps right off the page. It’s a ‘shake you out of your complacency’ book.”
