Author Shirley R. Jennings shares personal experiences and how God showed himself throughout each of them in her new memoir “Encounters with A Holy God.” By realizing His presence, Jennings strengthened her level of intimacy with God.

As humans, we tend to learn more from our failures than from our successes. God uses both our failures and successes to help us grow, and oftentimes it is only in hindsight which we realize his involvement in various parts of our lives. Jennings wrote this autobiography to show how present He truly was through good times and bad.

“God personally knows every detail of our lives, and that it is through encounters with him brought on by life's experiences that we gain intimate knowledge of how much he really cares about us,” the author said.

This memoir aims to deepen the level of intimacy between readers and God, allowing it to grow richer than they realized ever possible.
