God Stories

Inspiring Encounters with the Divine

– The #1 Inspirational and #1 Spiritual bestseller for 150+ weeks –

God Stories is a book where people of all faiths reveal the moment they received personal proof that there is more.

From the Introduction:

“Does God exist? Why am I here? Is there more? These questions nag at us incessantly throughout our lives. But the answers are forever elusive, always just out of reach. Today we are fact-driven people: we need evidence before we form opinions and often dismiss events that can’t be logically explained. Yet we desperately want the security that comes with having a certain future. The search for these answers has divided people into two camps; those who look for solace in organized religion and its promise of an afterlife and those who consider themselves spiritual but not religious: they believe their souls are going somewhere but they’re just not sure exactly where. Regardless of what camp you’re in, we all want the same thing. We want confirmation that what we believe is true. We want proof of modern day encounters with the Divine.

As you turn the pages in this book a chill may overwhelm you, your eyes may fill with tears and the hairs on your arms may suddenly stand as the answers to the questions you’ve always wanted to know become apparent.”

Readers Reviews

“Hearing the voice of God, no matter what type of higher being your follow, can be difficult for people to comprehend. This collection of true stories is not only well written, but impresses upon the reader that miracles really do happen…that there is a higher power in the world and within us. There are so many stories in this book that gave me chills and brought tears to my eyes. It really is an amazing collection of truth’s and divine intervention. No matter what faith you follow, these stories will speak to you!”
Jennifer West

“Fantastic! A truly inspiring book. It made me remember how often we overlook God’s presence and how often God can be there for us.”
Robert Jones

“I read this book at a time in which I was going through a lot in my life and it helped me realize how close God is to all of us. I absolutely loved the book and have read it multiple times! I got several of my coworkers into reading the book too. Can’t wait for Jen to write and publish more books!”
Dumar (Amazon)

“To those who have felt the presence of God in their life this book is like a affirmation. To those who have not yet had this privilege – this book is a revelation. Yes there is more to us than we see. The Divine is all around us waiting to touch our lives at the right time and let us know we do indeed have a purpose.”
Dottie Brigati

“GODSTORIES is both comforting and tantalizing. It cultivates the heartening ideas that life doesn’t have to be cataclysmic to be profound, and that gratitude is the major player in peace of mind. Buy this book for the pleasure of reading it. Then keep it on your bedside table for the nights when you need to leaven your world.”
M. Pyle

“This book ROCKS. I have bought several copies and have given them to those I know who would appreciate it! I am totally inspired beyond inspired!!! No words can even express my thankfulness and pleasures of reading this book!”
M. from Wisconsin (Amazon)

“I learned about this wonderful book in my Sunday’s Paper book review section; I went out that same day through ice and snow and bought the book. I couldn’t put the book down and read the book almost straight through. The stories are inspiring and the author has done a wonderful job sharing those lives to the reader.”
Donald L. Lefeber

“Easy reading, inspirational and spiritually supportive!!
A great book to pass on to someone in need of spiritual or emotional support.”
Just Wondering (Amazon)

“Both inspiring and delightful. Jennifer Skiff has put together a book that is both inspirational and fun to read. The book does not preach, the book does not foster a belief in any particular religion. God Stories is simply the first person accounts of encounters with God. If you already believe in God, it is an inspirational affirmation of faith. If you are not sure of the existence of God, this book may convince you that a Higher Power does, indeed exist.
I highly recommend this book!”
Lea A. Mulqueen

“This book… is “life changing.” I was so taken by the stories that I finished it in 2 days. I had lunch with my Pastor yesterday, and took the book with me for him to see. He read one story and asked me to lend it to him when I finished reading it. I would advise anyone, but particularly those who have lost a loved one to read this book, it will bring you tears, then relief as you will realize that all will be OK. My wife passed on 3/30/07 and now as the result of this book I’m sure she is “over there” waiting for me. Thank you Jennifer Skiff.”
Philip E. Ireland

“I bought this book… and was so excited to read it, that I finished it in 2 days! It was easy to read and just lovely. I cried at times, laughed a little, and got plenty of goose bumps while reading it! I gave this out as birthday gifts one year and it was a HUGE hit. I even was sad when i finished the book… Definitely worth getting and reading!! I highly recommend it!”
Mama2One “Bookworm” (Amazon)

“In our fast-paced world, a book like God Stories allows us to slow down and reflect. My teenage son read a few chapters and was inspired. We often read the same books so we can talk about them together, and God Stories has turned out to be a great mother-son read!”
Liz Weiss

“Jennifer Skiff’s book, God Stories: Inspiring Encounters with the Divine is tangible proof of how God is working in the lives of people in the world today. The stories are real and filled with compassion. They call out to you comforting you in a way that you just cannot explain. I recommend this book to anyone who is going through a difficult season in their lives so that they will know that they are not alone and that God does perform miracles everyday.”
Chrissie D. (Amazon)
