Item Description...
Thirteen years ago, a missions trip inspired a young couple to move to Mexico to care for orphans and other children. True stories drawn from their ministry experiences challenge readers to trust God to show up exactly when and where he?s needed most.

Publishers Description
'The stories in the chapters that follow aren't chronological. They're not a history of how I found myself living on the side of a mountain in Mexico, and I'm not sure that would interest anyone but my mother and her friends anyway. Instead, I've mined my journals for those moments when God used the very people I thought I was in Mexico to lead, to lead me. Time and again I've been led to trust God, with my little mustard seed of faith, to see how he not only shows up in our circumstance---but he shows off! It's not because he needs to prove himself; rather, he is demonstrating to a forgotten population---the orphans that I serve---that he will be their Father and Protector and Provider.'Beth and Todd established a ministry that helps orphans---the poorest, most defenseless members of a needy populace. And while the stories here are drawn from those experiences, this book isn't a memoir.It's about living with faith, with the certainty that God will show up, exactly where and exactly when He's needed. Beth calls it a reckless faith---a willingness to trust even when you don't understand. And her book---an inspiring collection of true stories about real people who, when faced with real challenges, chose to trust God---is a call to live with Reckless Faith.

Amazing and Encouraging Story  May 24, 2010
I absolutely loved this book, and would recommend it to anyone wanting to be uplifted & motivated in their faith! Beth is an amazing Godly woman!
So Challenging  Mar 15, 2010
I loved this book and read it in just a couple days. It is so good to hear Beth's challenges in the form of real-life stories and real-life relationships, rather than a step-by-step theological breakdown (which also has its place!). She's a great storyteller, and by the end of the book I felt like I knew the orphans and saints about which she writes.

God really challenged me through this book to quit avoiding ministry situations that promise a good chance of failure or burnout. By her example (not just her words), Beth challenged me to enter situations which will allow God to not only show up but also show off. This is a great book for anyone who struggles with trying to take the reins from God. It's also a good read for those who are constantly tempted to measure success in ministry, instead of just letting God accomplish His plan in the strange and wonderful ways that He so often does.

Highly recommend this book and will be buying it for several friends!
Fantastic  Jul 10, 2009
This book was given to me as a gift and has had a significant impact on my life. Beth's real life story and commitment to trust God with even the seemingly impossible not only inspire, but also act as a catalyst for action in each of our own lives. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone looking for guidance from a real person with real challenges, but who has become something extraordinary simply by trusting God's ability to do truly anything.
Let Go and Be Led  Jun 18, 2009
I first met Beth and her husband Todd seven years ago on a mission trip to Mexico. This was six years after they founded their orphan care ministry (Back2Back Ministries) in Monterrey. Upon first hearing them share their heart for the ministry, I was hooked. I've been back 5 to Monterrey five times since. The Guckenberger's passion for children is coupled with a deep understanding of God's care for the least and the lost, and it has spilled over into a ministry much bigger than themselves, with over 30 staff in four countries. Really exciting stuff.

I just returned from a Back2Back trip, and so I am likely not the most objective reviewer of the book. Nevertheless, I'll give it a go.Reckless Faith isn't a memoir so much, as a collection of stories (or vignettes) from the Guckenberger's experiences in orphan care ministry. Though personal stories, they are accessible to those who have no experience with their ministry or Mexico. Having heard Beth speak before, I went into the book knowing it would be a good read with gripping stories. But I was pleasantly surprised by how thoughtful and poignant her prescriptive statements were. Every short story is coupled with a reflection and an application. Though challenging in every way, Guckenberger manages to avoid the trap that many books written by missionaries fall into -- offering applications unattainable by the average working person. Beth's thoughts are inspiring, but also doable, whether you are caring for oprhans in Mexico or sitting behind a desk in Cincinnati.

I highly recommend this book. It's a short, quick read, and would make a great gift. It also would read well on a beach chair during your vacation.
Expand Your Faith -- Read this Book!  May 10, 2009
I am so glad I read this book. I love how Beth lives out her faith and Believes in her God and so does those she encounters. We all should live our lives with this type of open-handed trust in our God. So many examples of God's faithful love of his children.
