About the Book
Book: Blessed and Transformed
Author: Dr. Jeannine Bennett
Genre: Christian Nonfiction (Women’s Bible Study)
Release date: October 2020
What do you do when God answers your prayers, renews your mind, and transforms you?
Life does not always turn out the way we hope. It is often filled with tragedy, heartbreak, and loss, but make no mistake, God doesn’t abandon us during those times. Instead, God uses every experience we encounter to transform us so we can live the life He intended when He created us.
As Christians, we understand that we live in a fallen world. A world where dwelling on past failures or falling prey to the same sins seems normal. But what happens when God opens our spiritual eyes and shows us a different way to live? Do you run to Him and embrace the change? Do you find your calling and live out your purpose?
In Blessed and Transformed, Jeannine Bennett shares how much sweeter life is when you recognize God’s blessings and fully embrace His transformation of your life. She shows you there is no limit to what you can endure or accomplish by keeping God front and center.

About the Author
To those who know Jeannine, she is simply a woman who loves Jesus, is devoted to her family, and struggles with life’s challenges like the rest of us. She is not immune to bad hair days, shrinking clothes (weight gain), or sleepless nights. She loves learning and sharing the knowledge acquired to help others learn too. Her favorite ice cream is a toss-up between butter pecan and mint chocolate chip. And, although she has lived in Virginia for more than 30 years, she still calls a water fountain a bubbler. A term she grew up saying in her hometown of Racine, Wisconsin.
More from Jeannine
In my previous book, Broken to Beautiful, I shared my testimony. The first half of my story was filled with hopelessness, disappointment, heartache, and loss. The second half described accounts of undeniable blessings. I have chosen to continue my story in Blessed and Transformed because I want to further the conversation about what happens when we
receive all of those blessings.
Friends, we cannot have blessings without being transformed. Just as each trial, each struggle, each challenge changes us, each blessing is a gift that God uses to change us too.
I believe blessings are God’s way of showing that He loves us. I also think He uses those blessings to nudge us forward in pursuit of what He has called us to do.
I pray this book is a blessing to you!
If you haven’t had a chance to read the author’s other book called Broken To Beautiful, it is a must read. Her newest book continues to encourage readers as she guides us through being transformed. I love her writing that is honest and shares scriptures to give us a deeper insight to subjects in the book. This past year has been hard for many and reading this book reenforces how we need uplifting words.
The book is chocked full of wisdom and I took out my journal to write some of them down to look at later. We all want to be blessed and I love how the author says, “He uses those blessings to nudge us forward in pursuit of what He has called us to do.” He wants us to be encouraged on our journey that He has prepared for us. When we are blessed our outlook is more joyful and we tend to pursue Him more with thanksgiving.
Each chapter touches on a different subject and includes at the end three sections to further your study. I decided I was going to use this as a Bible study/devotional. I started writing in my journey and before I knew it I had spent hours on just two chapters. They are short chapters but filled with so much info that I found helpful.
As the book moves from blessing to transformation I eagerly anticipated the words God had for me. “To be transformed by God means we have the Holy Spirit living within us, and the many blessings we experience should be shared with others to testify to God’s goodness.” I remember very clearly when I rededicated my life to Christ. I couldn’t wait to tell everyone. I felt refreshed, renewed and joyful. My burdens were gone and I was transformed into a new person. Nothing feels better than to be in His presence and then sharing the good news with others.
I am hopeful as I share this review that others will pick up a copy of this book. Inside is words that speak directly to our heart. The author clearly loves the Lord and her joy is contagious. Trust God with everything and He will show you joy, peace and unconditional love as we transform into a child of God. I want to be like David who had an intimate relationship with God. Don’t we all want to be Blessed and Transformed?
I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.
