Hi Paige, I just wanted to write you a message about the impact your book has made on my life. I’m 14, and I haven’t had anything dramatic happen in my life like you did at such a young age, but I didn’t realize how I was becoming sucked into the world and beginning to waste my life. God had been speaking to me and calling me to some things, and I didn’t even realize it until I read your book and saw the areas of my life that needed changing. I’ve always wanted to make a difference in the world, and I’ve always believed that I could, but I feel like I lost my yearning to change the world with God by my side, and how I can only do something big when God is with me. I spent a lot of time praying as I was reading your book, and God is speaking to me so strongly right now. In fact, I stayed up the whole night reading your book, i couldn’t put it down, it was changing my life with every sentence I read. So many things became clear to me, and I had some huge realizations. I know that I want to give my life to god whole heartedly now, and he can’t just be another hidden part of my life. He is who gave me life, and he has chosen a special purpose for me, so who am I to do what I want and let my life be wasted, fading in and out like that mist, not making any legacy or difference for other lives that need Jesus.I truly do beleive that there was a specific reason as to why I was reading your book, and without it, my whole life might have become that mist that fades in and out and does nothing. But I want to do something, I am piecing some of the puzzle that God has put before me recently that I have ignored, and I am so passionate about living out my mission and doing great things for God, and with God. Recently I was reading another book called Little Princes, its a story about a guy who travels into Nepal and works in an orphanage there for a while, in a brief wrap up. I really felt a connection to that book, and I couldn’t put that one down either. I feel now that god was speaking to me with that book, but I don’t think I knew it. Today,at school, we had a presentation about India and the suffering there, and how there is not a large percentile of Christians there to bring hope. Now, I know that its probably not possible for me to fly out to one of these developing countries right at this instant and start helping the children there, but I also know that I can’t wait for that chance to come to start making a difference in the lives of others. So I started to think about living in the world but not of it, and the importance of making your life stand out in the midst of the norm crowd, so that others see a (good) difference in your life and want to be like that, and how important it is to have Jesus on your nametag (or so to speak) but then to also live out Jesus and be a strong light for him and hold him an amazing reputation, so that we can call ourselves true Christians. Also, the story about the girl who went every day after school to take food to the homeless people made me realize that I dont have to wait for a HUGE opportunity to travel overseas and do HUGE things, that the smaller things matter so much too. I have a new found longing to provide help in my area too, until I can go overseas. Last Year I went to France and lived there for two months, and so I hope that will help me one day when I am able to go to developing countries and help children there. i am working as hard as I can (with Gods help) to see the need in the world around me, and to work for his cause. I know that I can start by just giving out compliments, and just being a kind person to be around for the people around me, volunteering in charities around here, and seeing what God is doing in the lives around me. I know that I can’t waste my life. That I have to stand out. That I have to make a difference in other peoples life. That I have to remain passionate about the things I hate and Gods workings through me to rekindle lives, so that more of us can have eternal life with him. I want to be proud of the life I am leading and not let it dwindle away because we dont know how much time is left for us, so we need to make every minute count. I am praying that God will continue to kindle this passion, to help me recognize further my specific mission and purpose and to live it out the fullest. Phillipians 4:13 is a verse that keeps coming back to me. I’m also praying that God would help me to be a light for him, that my life will be different from the normal life that people get caught in, and that I may be able to share his word and my faith in him more freely, because I always seem to struggle with this. Any way, not sure how well I can explain how god has truly touched my life with your book and a few other things that came along with it, it came at just the right time, and I feel so inspired and ignited to make a difference with God. Thank you so very much for helping me to realize the preciousness of life, recognizing Gods voice that was speaking to me for a while now, and inspiring me to live out my purpose and my calling for my life. Thank you for living out your mission, so that I can start to live out mine, without you, I don’t think I would have. I don’t know if you will get to read this or not, but I can’t say how much God has used your book to change my life. It has rekindled and discovered passion and rearranged my perspectives in life. I hope God will continue to work through you to change lives like mine forever.

I got to the first part of The wish The Hope, and I stopped at the part where you said you felt Jesus himself there beside you. Although I never been in the hospital for something severe like cancer, I had to be rushed to the hospital because I passed out in a mall. I had a heat stroke. It was my first time ever in the ambulance. Or even connected to a IV. I also had a breathing mask on. But through it all I wasn’t a bit scared.
I felt Jesus’ hands carry me. It was so amazing. The song by Steven Curtis Chapman called Bring it on kept repeating in my brain. That song helped me through a lot in my life.

The song says: if this is going to make me grow stronger, then bring it on.

I love it because through that song God has brought me through a lot.

I remember the nurses helping me get dress and do test. Things I would of said “Stop! I don’t want anyone near me.” But instead I felt peace.

I smiled at my sister and said: “If this is going to make me grow stronger in God. Then bring it on.”

I stayed there the rest of the day and night. I was so week to walk.
I couldn’t even get up to use the bathroom.

Normally I would get so upset and cry. But again I felt peace.
I praise Jesus for that day. Because I actually felt him right beside me.
Thank you for your book wake up generation.
I’ll probably be reading it the rest of the night;)

I love to write but normally I don’t really like to read. But your book is on my level. I really like how you write. And hope to publish my books just like you did. I’m punishing a children’s book soon. But my dream is to publish a book I feel God wants me to write. And maybe make a movie out of it some day. I love to dream big. And I’m so happy to know that nothing is impossible with Jesus.

Hope to see you soon. Maybe by then we can swap books and sign it for each other;) God bless you Paige.

Signed-Dream Big!
