God is in control. Tammy McBride shows how God works details out in The Word Works…If You Work It! Tammy allowed God to bring her out of poverty and into blessings by paying attention to what God says and putting it into practice. Part of God’s plan is for us to pray His Word while also speaking His Word. Words are powerful, and God’s words are the most powerful in the world. Why does God want to work in our lives? He brings us through all things for the glory of His name. Since everything is about Him and not us, He wants us to be successful for His glory. When God sends financial support, He uses people to do it. God can and does speak to His people to support His work and those dedicated to Him. It is God’s will that we trust Him. Satan hates it when Christians talk to God’s will and Word in faith.

The Word Works…If You Work It! by Tammy McBride is an inspiring work of faith. Tammy allows God to flow through her to the reader. It is a given that Tammy believes in the power of God and His Word. God created the universe and everything in it through the power of His words, and He will make the life He intends for you through your use of His Word. God wants to use each of His children, but too many are afraid to speak His Word in power and love. Tammy has been under the mountain of insurmountable debt, but through God’s Word came out on top. Yielding ourselves to God and obeying His Word will cause us to reap His bounty. I highly recommend reading this book for inspiration and encouragement.

In her uplifting, faith-based memoir, The WORD Works...If You Work IT! From Poverty to PROMISE! Tammy McBride inspires others to believe, speak God’s word, and put it into practice. After graduating from high school in 1982, McBride went on to serve in the United States Air Force. She shares how God has provided many incredible opportunities and breakthroughs throughout her spiritual, professional, and personal life. After trying multiple times to be stationed near her family, an expected opportunity finally opened, which allowed McBride to spend three amazing years with her grandmother. The miracles continued through her application of God’s Word in her life. She includes other miraculous experiences she encountered while searching for a house, her battle with breast cancer, and her finances.

This is a powerful, encouraging guide about applying The Word in every stage and aspect of life. I loved that it offers examples of how anyone can use God’s Word and explains that biblical teachings are meant to be practiced daily. I was inspired by McBride’s faith and encouraged by the outcome of her prayer life as she faced many challenges in her path. Her incredible memoir is a testament to God’s faithfulness during happy and difficult times. The miraculous experiences covered include everyday moments and life-changing stages of her life, which underscore God’s presence in all aspects of life. It has useful additional resources that are helpful for further research. The WORD Works...If You Work IT! is a story of courage, faith, and resilience. It is a profound guide to speaking God’s Word in difficult situations.

The Word Works... If You Work It! Subtitled From Poverty to Promise, this is a memoir in which Tammy McBride relates her financial struggles after leaving the army and how she solved them because she believed and spoke the Word of God. Her account begins with memories of her grandmother and her devotion to Jesus, as well as the recollection of the last years of her life when the author had the privilege of being close to her. McBride later reveals her health problems (she was diagnosed with breast cancer), her financial woes, and how she managed to solve them with God's help. This book will inspire many readers to believe His Word and consistently speak it to improve one's situation.

I think Christian readers will find it easy to relate to what Tammy McBride says in The Word Works... If You Work It! I am sure many of them may have turned to God to solve a problem, but the author recalls her experience in a way that will allow them to take their faith to the next level. I found it inspiring that she revealed how she solved her situation by talking to the problem directly (this is an idea she got from one of the books she also recommends to her readers), and I believe the way things turned out is extraordinary. This is a book that will instill confidence and faith in those who read it, especially if they are people who need to be encouraged to believe.

It took her more than a year to finally become employed. Also, she had a large family that needed her care. Tammy's beloved grandmother fought Alzheimer's disease. While still serving, Tammy wanted to be near her. Tammy's last military assignment was at Warner Robins AFB, a base near her grandmother's house. Tammy saw God's hand in getting this assignment. After that, even in the direst of circumstances, which included her bankruptcy, Tammy knew that God was on her side. She kept believing, praying, and proclaiming His Word. The WORD Works...

The WORD Works... If You Work IT! offers doable steps to achieving financial security through acts of faith. In this quick and powerful read, Tammy McBride opens up about her financial hardship simply and genuinely. From this book, we will learn that Tammy is a hard worker with a stellar work ethic. And even though some people let her down, God has always been by her side. The WORD Works... If You Work IT! witnesses how faith in God helps us stay confident and secure no matter what.

In The Word Works...If You Work It! From Poverty to Promise, Tammy McBride described how God has been faithful to her since she served as an Air Force officer. The main goal of this book is to share her stories of how God changed her financial position by using His words to address the circumstances in her life. She uses her experiences to stir our faith and to challenge us to begin putting God's words into practice in our lives. We can only do this through faith. Tammy explained how God had intended for her to work at the Air Force base that was most convenient for her parents and grandparents as there was a special kind of relationship in their family. Despite her longing, God eventually made it happen through an unexpected person.

The Word Works...If You Work It! by Tammy McBride tested me, and I had to have another look at my faith. The book is short and compelling, and I could not put it down. Tammy described the kind of love that motivates us all to be better, a love that makes one available for God to use for the betterment of the family. This book is well-written, and Tammy shares her financial struggles and breast cancer with us. I learned that God will make your dream come true as long as it is not self-serving. God makes good on His promises for our lives by involving anyone. We just have to be patient. This book is a faith builder, and God's promises are shared and easy to apply. If you believe in God, this book will assist you in changing your life and accelerating your personal development.
