Author Ann Spearman starts out her book, Reflection Of A Great, Mighty, Magnificent God, by stating that one needs to say good things because the devil is just waiting for you to say bad things and make these come true. The whole book discusses also that we need to listen to that still small voice from the Holy Spirit. An example of this still small voice is in every chapter. The examples include waking her daughter up when her daughter’s alarm clock did not go off, being reminded that the car lights were left on, not opening the front door at 3:00 a.m., walking to the car late at night near a liquor store, fear of a bridge, shots only being a car backfiring, a pit bull growling one minute then whimpering the next, and the car having bullets sprayed at it yet everyone survived. Often we hear that still small voice as it comes from somewhere, but that is, according to Spearman, the Holy Spirit. She has her book filled with and backed up by Bible verses.

This book’s only illustration is the front cover. However, Ann Spearman’s book is so descriptive in word to make up for the lack of any illustrations. Her book flows smoothly from chapter to chapter with personal experiences of the works of God, ranging from acts experienced herself, her husband, her daughter and her son. After reading these experiences, one just might believe in a higher power. The book makes hope seem possible, especially when a person is questioning the existence of a higher power. If a person wants to know more, Spearman has her examples validated by Bible verses for a reader to look up these in the Bible themselves for further studying. This book is good for Christian readers and to have when one is questioning his/her faith.
