Item Description...
Overview
Janine Maxwell owned one of the largest marketing companies in Canada that boasted a blue chip client list. Then on 9/11 she found herself trapped in New York City when all transportation in and out of the city stopped. She had to fight her way home to her family in Canada. The world-changing events of that day became the catalyst that first sent Janine into a deep depression and later to the darkest parts of Africa in her search for the meaning of life. What happened next was a roller coaster ride fromthe board room to the streets of Africa where she found herself standing face to face with the AIDS pandemic and trying to understand what to do with 15 million orphans who are left in its wake. Her story is brutally honest and will take you straight to the heart of the issue of Africa's great need. Even the most seasoned African traveler will have their eyes opened again. All we need to do is say, "It's not okay with me, either" and then act.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A life changing book  Nov 17, 2008
We know kids in Africa are hungry, we know they die at the rate of thousands per day, but do we really know what these kids must do in order to try to survive? This book is a first hand account of someone who has been there to see it, and changed her life to try to help. Don't read this book unless you are ready for you life to be changed as well.
 
Grabs Your Heart and Doesn't Let Go  Mar 24, 2007
I received the book and did not put it down until I had finished it. I cried through most of it. I was angry, sad, frustrated, enlightened... but mostly I was motivated. It is absolutely not okay with me and I implore everyone who has read this book to purchase more copies and give them to their friends, business associates, etc. This is definitely one of the most powerful books I have ever read!! It grabs you by the heart and it does not let go.
 
A compelling View  Feb 27, 2007
Maxwell has written a compelling read about the plight of the victims of the AIDS pandemic in sub-Sahara Africa. The story of how God wrenched her heart away from her comfortable existance, and called her to serve the orphans and poor is an extraordinary tale of God's Call on a life and a respopnse of Obedience. This book begs to be read in a single setting, and yet pondered at great length over time!

You cannot read this without gaining enlightenment to the plight of the African continent and those who inhabit it. But beware - it will challenge you in ways that might just lead you to ponder the question - "Am I making enough of a difference with my life?"

 
Isn't it cool....  Feb 1, 2007
"Isn't it cool"... That's what Janine's son Spencer said to her when she didn't have all the answers. "Isn't it cool that GOD knows and we don't have to." The faith of a child humbles all of us.
Janine and Ian Maxwell are THE story. The one of transformation in Christ. The struggles, the sacrifice, the obedience and stewardship. The faith of letting go and answering a call to serve, to become Christ-like.
From a life of luxury in Canada to slums in Africa. Janine doesn't do things 1/2 way. Her transparency is much appreciated in sharing her personal emotional struggles.
I recommend this book to every breathing soul alive today. If it doesn't move you in the very core of your being, check your pulse.
Not everyone can do as much as Heart for Africa is doing, but as Janine pointed out in a slideshow I saw, while in Swaziland on one of these missions, the power of one to change the course of a nation has been demonstrated on more than one occasion and though you can't out give GOD, it's sure fun trying.
This book is well written. It is an account of life changing events in the course of Janine and her family's plight. You will laugh and you will cry.
I pray though, that if you dare to turn it's pages and find the HOPE that is there, that you have the courage to act on the opportunity that GOD through Janine present you with. Go to [...] NOW !
"This is a test, do not fail." That's what GOD told me. I responded Janine responded. Will you respond? I promise you, life will NEVER be the same. You will say, "It's not OK with me!"
 
It's not ok with me either  Jan 31, 2007
A very inspiring story that left me with only one answer, it's not ok with me either. We see so many stories of actors, rock stars, billionaires, and politicians working in Africa. But Janine tells a story that should inspire each one of us to act. Normal people like you and me, teachers, grocery store clerks, stay at home moms, or college students. We may not all have the public's attention or millions of dollars, but we all have a skill to offer even if it is just love. Don't read this book unless you are prepared to honestly answer the question "Is it OK with you?" and then act on that answer.
