So you were hoping for a cheery devotional that would warm your heart, put a grin on your face, and remind you to count your blessings as you climb, climb up sunshine mountain as heavenly breezes blow?
Guess what? You picked up the wrong book.
On the other hand, I’ll bet you can’t read just one of Lori’s bite-sized reflections. There’s plenty of sugar to help the medicine go down. Just when you peek ahead and think, I’m-not-sure-I-want-to-face-this-particular-truth, you remember that the last time you thought that, Lori made it palatable with just the right dash of humor or pathos or ah-ha.
Then you’ll find yourself doing as I did: saying, all right, just one more. And one more. And one more. --Jerry B. Jenkins, Bestselling author of the Left Behind Series, owner of Christian Writer’s Guild

I don’t remember how I stumbled across Lori’s blog, Deeper with Jesus in Rhode Island, but from the first post I read she had me. Lori writes with authority and humility, with justice and mercy. With vulnerability and strength. The word deeper in her blog title is exactly right. Her writing challenges me,encourages me and goes to the often unexplored places of the heart."
"Want truth? This is the book for you. There's a catch: you must be willing to open your mind and maybe even change the way you live. This collection is not only truth, it's beautiful, brilliant, lyrical and wise. And it inspires me to want to be a better man, more like Christ."
– Cecil Stokes, Writer, Producer of October Baby
Whether she’s admonishing us to “knock it off” or encouraging us to “abscond with joy,” Roeleveld thrusts her spear straight into the messiness of life and delivers up a feast of hope. With precision prose, sharp humor and an insight that reflects a close walk with God, she challenges us to go deeper with her in Jesus. Running from a Crazy Man is a delightful, practical, and powerful work from a masterful writer.
--Marcia Moston, author of Call of a Coward: The God of Moses and the Middle-Class Housewife
Lori Roeleveld's prose is at once challenging and inspiring, beautiful and gritty; it is a princess with its sleeves rolled up ready to go to work. With each word, her readers know they are in the hands of a master. Equally adept at both fiction and non-fiction, Roeleveld is a master word weaver.

Lori Roeleveld writes concisely and with passion about life, experiences and Biblical truths. I was so impressed with her keen insights that I gave her a page every month in our church newsletter. I wanted people I know to be just as challenged, motivated and fed by her writing as I have been.
