Item Description...
Drawing on her studies of the tabernacle and temple, Calvert digs deeply into her own difficult spiritual journey to demonstrate how every experience we have is related to being a house of God. With surprising candor, Calvert takes us from our origins as "a pile of rocks and a promise" to a glorious temple. This courageously vulnerable book will show you how God has been working in your life all along to heal the cracked foundations of your soul and rebuild your broken heart-even when you thought He had forgotten all about you. Whether it's a pebble in your shoe or a boulder in your path, the Rock of Ages is using it all to accomplish His master blueprint for you.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
From Gravel to Glory is continually and profoundly impacting my marriage and my personal spiritual growth. This book helped me see that my life is a journey of ongoing transformation through which a loving God is daily building me into the person He wants me to be. I was relieved to discover that the building process is not supposed to be pleasant. God often allows pain for the purposes of our growth. Like most people, my reaction to suffering has been that of resistance. But now that my suffering has meaning, it ceases to be suffering and becomes an adventure to embrace.

Gina Calvert demonstrates how our life experiences (good and bad) are related to becoming a house of God. In the past, I thought it was my job to make myself into the Christian I was meant to be, which made me the builder rather than the building. My old beliefs stemmed from legalistic teachings of God's temple which caused me to think I could achieve perfection and righteousness by properly following instructions. However, as good as I tried to be and as hard as I worked, my life was still full of anxiety, frustration, and addictive behaviors. It was painful to come to the realization that although I have tried to live a righteous life, be a good son, husband, parent, or employee, that in reality, I am actually a mess. This book brings purpose to my mess by providing a scriptural basis for the correct view of becoming a temple of God. Our temples are made of "me-stones" or "gravel" (anxiety, depression, pride, addictions, conflict, fear, etc) that He must deconstruct to make room for "God-stones" (trust, faith, joy, self-control, love, healing, etc).

This book is organized into three Sections:
1. Open Your Eyes: Seeing the House Plans
2. Open Your Mind: Participating in the Building
3. Open Your Heart: Enjoying the House

The first section helps us understand that we are being transformed by God and that pain is part of the process. The second section provides practical tools and encouragement to help us walk through the painful process of becoming who God want us to be. The third section paints a beautiful picture of the joy and love that we will experience when we allow God to bring us through our latest transformation cycle.

This book is not meant to be read and applied only once. It is a reference manual that I pick up and review as God refines me through continual transformation cycles.
How firm is your foundation?  Sep 21, 2009
This book was very deep and required lots of thought. This book is about your foundation. You are the temple of God. Temples must be built on firm foundations or they crumble. So, how's your temple foundation? Ms. Calvert uses a number of references to famous psychologists and their works. That's ok though, it makes the reader think. Ms. Calvert uses the temple of the Old Testament to show how God will take the making of your temple today and apply His rules to it's construction and deconstruction. God finds all the gravel, or perhaps it's a boulder, in your foundation and brings it to your attention in order to replace it with His firm cement. In order to remove that gravel God has to have your attention and then has to dig it out and replace it. This can be very difficult, traumatic, and sometimes annoying but you always emerge on the other side better and stronger if you allow God to do the building and not try to do it all yourself. Ms. Calvert has divided her chapters into subsections that are well written and complete in each piece. I found this very important because if something struck me that I needed to mull over, I felt that I could stop reading at that point and think about it without getting lost when I returned to the book. I enjoyed this book and will definitely reread it many times to find more gravel in my foundation.
How does this work?  Apr 13, 2009
Many people go through life and don't really stop to think about how this whole thing (life) works. My daughter gets in her car in the morning turns the key and goes on about her way never stopping to consider all the different circuits and systems that need to work before the car starts. Many in life are happy never really investigating how our physical,mental, and spiritual "car" works. This book does just that. The great journey that the author tells of her struggles with the physical, mental and the spiritual, shows us how life works. "From Gravel to Glory" is not for someone that is looking for a "light read", it has a lot of deep thought provoking ideas that cause one to re-evaluate where they are on life's highway. This is a must read!
Anointed & Amazed  Mar 10, 2009
This book was more than an eye opener to me - it was moving and hopeful and healing. How comforting to know God wants me to have a relationship with Him and that He will use my bad choices and circumstances to make that happen...The practical use of this book has gone beyond use in only moments of crisis to every single moment...I can't wait to read it again!
fantastic book  Mar 2, 2009
From Gravel to Glory is thought provoking and challenging. Gina elaborates on Scripture in ways I had never thought of before and inspired me to examine my life and the foundational beliefs I have about God. As I read the last page, I was ready to read it again. I knew there was so much rich and applicable information that I couldn't wait to dive back in again.
I loved Gina's transparency in her own life struggles and how she maps her own spiritual growth in the process. I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to discover more about how God works to transform us into the likeness of His Son.
