    Praise the Lord for the testimony of the life of Frances Whitehead. We usually get to see the front man of the narrative, but this book takes you behind the scenes to see the person in the workshop who facilitated so much of the work. I love how Uncle John called her the omnicompetent. I cannot recommend this book enough. It is an easy read, which is a testament to the prowess of Julia Cameron. Reading it made me realize just how much the world has influenced modern day thinking of the work of co Praise the Lord for the testimony of the life of Frances Whitehead.

I love how Uncle John called her the omnicompetent. I cannot recommend this book enough. It is an easy read, which is a testament to the prowess of Julia Cameron. Reading it made me realize just how much the world has influenced modern day thinking of the work of colleagues. In this book you have a single man and a single woman working alongside each other without the need for the relationship to graduate into a marriage. They were united around a common goal and Ms Whitehead was the ultimate facilitator. Reading the book, you cannot help but notice the care, diligence and faithfulness with which she went about her work. The world saw Uncle John for the brilliant servant of the Lord that he was. That man could not have been without his right hand for support. The two longest running members of the happy triumvirate and their story is well worth reading

    I love that this is a book about someone not famous. It is so obvious that this partnership enabled John Stott to achieve his God-given task. This book was so easy to read and pulled me along at a gallop. I look forward to reading more work from Julia in the future.

    Encouraging read for all...especially for the administrative assistant. Frances Whitehead is a beautiful reminder that no person achieves higher levels of influence alone.
