One Step Away by Eric Wilson
Bret and Sara Vreeland are an average low income family struggling to make ends meet. Though they try and try they just can't seem to get ahead of all the expenses that pile up. But they have learned to be content and serve God, and are trying to teach their children the same thing.
When Satan notices this family who seems to have so little, he comes before the Almighty with a petition. "Let me test them", he says, "Will they still be so eager to serve you if they have riches beoynd belief?"
After careful scrutiny, The One Who Sits Upon The Throne gives his permission--permission to begin a trial of blessing.
How will Bret and Sara respond when everything in life starts going their way? An unexpected inheritance, a major promotion, a dream of success come true--will all these things capture the devotion they once gave God?
When they're faced with an unexpected choice of life altering proportions what choice will they make? The premise of this book pulled me in from the start, and did not disappoint. Well written and engaging , One Step Away brings us real characters who come alive on the pages. I found myself cheering and yelling at the characters as if they were close friends. Although not preachy, this book has me considering how I view the blessings I have been given.
