Item Description...
Overview
The terrain of Colorado forms a metaphor for life as acclaimed writer Ken Gire reflects upon the smooth, even terrain of eastern Colorado in contrast to the wild, uncertain, jagged terrain of western Colorado. The majestic, awe-inspiring mountains of western Colorado were born out of the most terrifying eruptions. And that is the unrelenting work of heaven, to make everything beautiful in its time. All of us would like life to be smooth with no upheavals. But the fact is that our lives are anything but. Our lives are full of upheaval, for that is life as we are given it. Gire looks at the beauty that is the result of these upheavals.

More About Ken Gire

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! KEN GIRE attended Texas Christian University where he earned a degree in History and Speech. In 1978 he graduated from Dallas Theological Seminary with his Masters in Old Testament Literature and Exegisis. From there he embarked on a career of fulltime writing which has resulted in the publication of more than twenty books, several of which have won prestigious awards.Ken has a heart for helping individuals create space for reflection so as to develop their personal relationships with others and God. While his books speak to the deep seated need of individuals to slow down and live more reflective lives, Ken has also founded a nonprofit ministry to address this issue. Reflective Living works with individuals, helping them to develop a more reflective lifestyle in order that they might experience radical change, authentic relationships and most importantly: a deeper walk with God.

Great Reawakening  Feb 2, 2010
This is another of Ken Gire's remarkable insights into life. As in his other books, the language is incredibly descriptive. While reading, one can sense not only that they are at the scene but that they are in the presence of God. I put the book down only to regret that it was ending. Then, I realized that I can reread it at any time without getting the least bit bored.
 
Lack Luster  Feb 2, 2009
Life As We Would Want It; Life As We Are Given It -- Ken Gire
A quick read. I don't believe it is anything we haven't heard
a dozen or more times. It isn't up to Ken Gire's usual insightfulness.
It might help someone who is impatient to find help in that it can
be read quickly.
 
A Hopeful Message  Jan 31, 2008
Ken Gire has written a thoughtful book about the seasons of life and how our lives are part of the natural cycle of life and death. He reminds us that what looks like destruction is actually the beginnings of new creation. This is a hopeful message for the times in our lives when we face tragedy, heartbreaking disappointments, or even the daily uphill grind. In His time, the Master is making us beautiful in His eyes, and bringing light into all the dark corners of our life experiences. This is a very easy read, but also thought-provoking, and Ken Gire uses lovely, lyrical -- almost poetic -- descriptions at times that evoke vivid images. I already loaned my copy out...
 
I love Ken Gire's books  Sep 26, 2007
I love all of Ken Gire's books. He just makes sense in his explanations about tough times. He knows God's in control and loves us, but also acknowledges the pain and difficulties trials bring. As I've walked through hard times, I've so appreciated each of his books.
 
A MUST READ FOR EVERYONE  Aug 11, 2007
Reccomended by a colleague I found it to be one of the most inspiring books I've read in a long time. "Life As We Would Want It..." addresses the desire of most to have smooth sailing through life: it doesn't happen that way. The author provides sound and reasonable counsel to change your approach to life in order to handle all that it throws at you. I am reccomending this book to everyone I encounter.
