Meet Me in the Trunk
By Yvonne Hilton Bourgeois
Review by Cheri Bowling
Proving that some of the best gifts really do come in small packages, Meet Me in the Trunk by Yvonne Hilton Bourgeois is a powerful reminder that “the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” Heb 4:12 ESV
Finding her psychology degree inadequate to help her navigate life’s bumpy and oftentimes treacherous roads, Yvonne finally surrendered to the still, small voice of God and let go of the wheel. Climbing into the trunk, far away from a place of control, she let God drive. As a result, He not only became her source of strength and comfort, He opened up to her the treasures of the Kingdom. In Meet Me in the Trunk, Bourgeois opens the door for her readers to join her in her trunk where encounters with God take her from stress to rest, from despairing of life to abundant life.
Combining narrative with the power of the Word, Meet Me in the Trunk is nothing less than a trip into deep intimacy with God. A cross between book/devotional/bible study, its short, two-page chapters are honest and refreshing. Thoughtful questions at the end of each chapter enable the reader to personalize the topics that include overcoming your humanness, setting aside selfishness, the true meaning of covenant, impurity, the power of words, and much more.
