Book Review: Miracle on Voodoo Mountain

"Miracle on Voodoo Mountain" by Megan Boudreaux is a testimony of how God moves mountains!

Overview: "It took months of God waking me up in the middle of the night before I realized I was the one He was calling to leave my comfortable American life and move to Haiti."

Miracle on Voodoo Mountain is the inspirational memoir of an accomplished and driven 24-year old who quit her job, sold everything, and moved to Haiti, by herself—all without a clear plan of action. Megan Boudreaux had visited Haiti on a few humanitarian trips but each trip multiplied the sense that someone needed to address the devastation—especially with the children, many of whom were kept as household slaves on the poverty-stricken and earthquake-devastated Caribbean island.

God guided her every step as she moved blindly to a foreign land without knowing the language, the people, or the future. From becoming the adoptive mother of former child slaves, to receiving the divine gift of the Haitian Creole language, to starting, building, and running a school for more than 500 children, "the amazingness of what God did after I made the choice to be obedient is incredible," said Megan.

Three years later, six acres on Bellevue Mountain in Gressier is the home of the nonprofit Respire Haiti at the former site of voodoo worship, and in the area that many still come to make animal sacrifices, Megan and her staff of nearly 200 are transforming this community as they educate, feed, and address the needs.

Dawn's Recommendation: 5 of 5 Stars (more if I could give them!!!!!)

What I Liked Loved: EVERYTHING! This book is a testimony of what God has done through Megan Boudreaux. I love her heart for God, her willingness to take constant leaps of faith, and her roll-up-her-sleeves-for-the-kingdom attitude. This book is passionate, exciting, amazing, and loving! I didn't want to stop reading it. I hope Megan writes a new book every 3 years to share what God is doing in Gressier, Haiti! 

This book will inspire people to step out in faith to follow the path God has for them! And, if they do, nothing will be impossible for them. God just needs a willing heart.  

Also, I loved the beautiful cover. It perfectly conveys, in one image, the miracles and joy that is found within the book's pages. I loved the cover even more when I found out that it is an actual picture of Megan, Micha, and the tamarind tree in Gressier.

What I Didn't Like: NOTHING!

Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of the book from the Publisher through BookLook Bloggers in exchange for my honest review.

What miracle (small or large) have you experienced?
