I’m filled with admiration for Sheri Adams – Briggs, author of Relentless Pursuit: God’s Gentle Guidance Amidst the Storm. Her commitment to surrender all aspects of her life to God is the gold standard for Christian faith. For anyone who isn’t sure what Christian faith looks like, they only need to keep reading Sheri’s story and it will soon become clear!
We all come to God with different family cultures and environments which ultimately define how we understand God and the scriptures. Sheri was no exception. Growing up within a cult system that regarded the leader as Jesus Christ caused her much confusion concerning God’s true identity and Bible doctrines over man-made rules. Yet, her gentle spirit obeyed the teachings out of respect and honor to her parent’s commitment and understanding of God. It’s this humbleness of obedience that later played an important part in Shari’s life once she courageously changed course in her teens to pursue Elohim Emet, the only true God and Creator as she references in Chapter 3.
Her beautifully written story pulled me into her exceptional life and family from the first chapter. I was drawn into their many challenges, near death experiences, the loss of loved ones and the birth and development of the Bridge of Hope distribution center born out of the conflict and brokenness of her life. Most difficult to learn about was Sheri’s loss of her infant son born premature, and the death of her young adult son with whom she had shared a deep bond. Yet, no matter how difficult her losses and time spent grieving, she continues to this day firm in her faith and love of God.
There is so much to learn from Relentless Pursuit: God’s Gentle Guidance Amidst the Storm. It vibrantly shares the plight of a woman fighting life’s difficult circumstances on her own until she found herself within the arms of God’s protective care and love. Once she had a taste of God’s blessings, her life became a testimony of trusting God to provide when she experienced lack or needed healing. She found her strength in Christ to hold her family together through trials and times of mourning. And because she patiently waited on God to bring life to the dreams He put into her heart, God was able to work through her life to create the Bridge of Hope San Diego.
There are lessons for everyone in this book. Sheri has experienced almost every type of difficulty anyone can face and has remained victorious. It’s one of the most powerful books I’ve read for Christians of all levels of Bible knowledge and for anyone seeking to understand a Christian’s life in action. I highly recommend this book for everyone.
