Juggling motherhood and her job as a real-estate agent, Elizabeth Jordan wishes her husband could help more around the house. But Tony’s rising career as a pharmaceutical salesman demands more and more of his time. With a nice home in the suburbs and a lovely young daughter, they appear to have it all—yet they can’t seem to spend time together without fighting.

Hoping for a new listing, Elizabeth visits the home of Clara Williams, an elderly widow, and is both amused and uncomfortable when Clara starts asking pointed questions about her marriage and faith. But it’s Clara’s secret prayer room, with its walls covered in requests and answers, that has Elizabeth most intrigued . . . even if she’s not ready to take Clara’s suggestion that she create a prayer room of her own. As tensions at home escalate, though, Elizabeth begins to realize that her family is worth fighting for, and she can’t win this battle on her own. Stepping out in blind faith, putting her prayers for her family and their future in God’s hands, might be her only chance at regaining the life she was meant for.

Yea, I know that I am late to the “party” because the book and movie were released a few years ago, but right now was the right time for me to dive into War Room. I can openly admit that I was nowhere near being in the correct frame of mind to not only read but to buy into what the book was about when it was released. I was angry at everyone: folks I felt wronged me, myself, and even God.

I kept hearing from folks that either the book or the movie had a very powerful effect on their life so I had very high expectations once I decided to open my copy. I was pulled in at the very beginning when they mentioned the most stressful things in life are moving, divorce and death and those three things are what my life has been about for the last four years. I was drawn in and was intrigued to find out how the story played out. I completely forgot I was reading a work of fiction.

And, see that’s the funny thing about how God works. He will find a way to reach you. He knows what is in your heart and what He needs to do to get your attention. War Room definitely got my attention and it held me captive over the past few days because when I was not reading it, I was thinking about it. I was talking about it. I was posting about it. War Room is a life changer. The book alone forces you to look within and see if you are really dealing with the goat in the mirror.

I recommend this book to anyone that is not only interested in developing a closer relationship with God, but if they want to really want to be the best version of their self. War Room through the use of realistic characters and situations made me examine my own life and I must say that my outlook on the power and importance of prayer has changed and my life will never be the same.
