The Challenge to Trust
on the Path to Peace
A 50-Day Journey
Creative Structure - FUN! (Amazon Review)
Truly a God inspired study (Amazon Review)
Trusting God All the Time! (Amazon Review)
This Bible study, The Challenge to Trust on the Path to Peace, is an excellent study. It’s easy to trust Jesus in the good times and if we are honest a little harder in the bad times. Going through this study taught me to do my best to trust Jesus ALL the time. Scripture, Study questions and worship music all enforcing a premise for the day. I know when I go through this study again, God will reveal even more. I am thankful for this woman of God who shares her heart through her experiences and Gods word.
Practical, Real, Honest (Amazon Review)
In the pages of this book, Cindy Janecka is real, honest, and vulnerable, just as she encourages you to be as you study. This book will challenge you and encourage you to take a practical look at your life and examine what causes you to lack trust in God. I look forward to reading and learning each day. As a leader of a small group study, The Challenge to Trust has encouraged our group to get closer as we are learning to become more vulnerable and honest with each other. The daily challenge questions are incredibly thought provoking. At the end of each day there is a "suggestion box" that has a simple hands- on task for the day. I find myself listening to the Songs of Trust Playlist that accompanies the book at stressful moments throughout the day. You will be blessed by this study, and I believe your life will also be changed. Whether you do this on your own or with a group, you do not want to miss it!
GREAT RESOURCE for groups, large or small (Amazon Review)
As our society seems to be experiencing an ever increasing crisis of eroding and failing trust (and a subsequent loss of peace), I found the premise and content of this book this book to be timely, relevant, and highly engaging. Like a wise and faithful friend, this book takes me by the hand and guides me (sometimes pushes me!) along the path of rediscovering God's plan for peace in my life.
(Amazon Review) On a practical note. the consistent structure and the format of the text was clear and helpful, and the structure is organized in a way that will translate well into a group study. The "Challenge Questions" included at the end of each chapter encourage deep thinking and reflection, and the scripture references found in the "In the Word" section not only reinforce the message of the chapter, but also allow God's word to speak to each of us in unique and powerful ways. The QR code linked songs and associated playlist provide a powerful soundtrack to complement the messages of each chapter - providing an element of worship to the experience.
Cindy beautifully wove the sovereignty of God! (Amazon Review) Although a heart wrenching account of the death of her precious Mom, Cindy beautifully wove the sovereignty of God, the peace of God and the strength of God into her day by day walk through this crisis. As her Mother's condition worsened, the family's faith grew stronger and God was given glory and praise. Very inspirational and a wonderful, uplifting book to share with those who are suffering.

(Amazon Review) "This book is a well-written account of a woman's experience as she goes thorough diagnosis and treatment for breast cancer. By revealing some of her deepest thoughts and fears, she gives hope to those with similar circumstances. It is an inspiration for women of faith and a wonderful reminder that God loves us all the time and will be with us through difficult circumstances. The author shares actual journal writings from throughout her journey that make the book very 'real' to the reader." Ruth
