My Thoughts On The Book:  I had to chuckle to myself when I read the title of the book.  I mean, come on!  Jesus and the Beanstalk....but being a huge fan of Jack and the Beanstalk I was curious to say the least.  Lori Roeleveld did an wonderful job of writing this devotional.  I struggle with giants in my life on a day to day basis and was delighted to find this little help to defeating those giants and bearing fruit in my Christian life.  This book inspired me to get out my dusty journal and dig deeper in the Word.  I have been journaling, praying, meditating and searching more than I have in a long time thanks to Jesus and the Beanstalk.  I found the Word Study Exercise and Role Model Ministudy very helpful.  The Heritage Faith Walkers was inspiring and the Small Steps was the spark that lit the fire in me to begin digging, writing, and journaling again. I really enjoyed the book and cannot wait to share it, or at least do a book study with it.  Thank you for allowing me to review it!
