Freedom Dairies will stretch you. It describes Mark’s real life struggle as he discovered he could hear God’s voice every day, writing down pages every day of what God was saying to him. It describes his battle and his breakthrough.
DR MARK VIRKLER. AUTHOR 4 KEYS TO HEARING GOD’S VOICE. FOUNDER COMMUNION WITH GOD MINISTRIES. BUFFALO NY.
“When I first heard about this it wasn’t the idea of hearing from God that was new, it was that Mark was having conversations back and forth, question and answers. That was new. Since then I have also had many conversations. Sometimes answers to questions, sometimes directions which, regardless of the content, always left me with hope."
DAVID GARRATT. CO-FOUNDER. SCRIPTURE IN SONG. HAWAII
“I thoroughly recommend Mark Holloway's book The Freedom Diaries – God Speaks Back… more than just a record of Mark’s personal journey with God, it also asks challenging questions about our own spiritual journey and encourages us into a deeper, more intimate conversation and relationship with God….”
ANDREW URQUHART - RHEMA ANNOUNCER
“You will read this book and know what a conversation with the real, living God sounds like. What makes Mark’s conversations with God unique is the pure, genuine, sane nature of what God says. And you will know exactly how to have a conversation yourself with this very real, very talkative God.”
BILL KASPER. COMPUTER SCIENTIST. AUSTIN TEXAS
“This real life collection of conversations between Mark and God can prompt any heart to not only ask questions of our Creator, but to expect answers as well. Through Mark's conversations with God, I am reminded to continually converse with God myself.”
KELLI CURTIS. 5Th GRADE TEACHER. INDIANAPOLIS. INDIANA.
“After attending a retreat at Easter and hearing Mark's testimony, I began recording my conversations with God. This has been revolutionary in my relationship with Father. My whole devotional life has expanded to a new level of reality and life. My wife has noticed a difference in me and has begun recording her conversations with God. As a result we both have experienced a renewal and refreshing of our devotional life.”
JONO TURNER. SENIOR MINISTER GATEWAYS CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP. NEW ZEALAND
"Finally! A Christian life that is actually worth living. These conversations are full of grace. They take prayer out completely of the box, and suddenly, God appears in the real world!”
KATHRYN MCBEATH, SCIENCE TECHNICIAN, WELLINGTON. NEW ZEALAND
“When I first heard about Mark Holloway and his ‘Conversations with God’ I was intrigued. When I got the chance to actually ‘read’ some of these conversations, my spirit leapt with excitement and I found myself crying tears of joy. I believe there are probably countless numbers of people experiencing similar methods in communicating with God, and for them, Mark’s technique and the results achieved will be ‘extremely’ encouraging. For those struggling to find that intimate place of ‘conversation’ with our loving Creator … “You have got to experience this.” Many in our congregation have started their own “Conversations with God’ and have had their prayer life and relationship with Him ‘totally’ transformed. I highly recommend you get your hands on a copy of Mark’s book
CHRIS FULOP. SENIOR PASTOR. NEW ZEALAND
"Remembering gifts. My new bicycle at Christmas when I was 12. These conversations rate so much higher that they are indescribable."
CHARLES HEYWOOD. NEW ZEALAND
“A few of us here are trying to practise listening to God and it is exciting, it is like baby steps for us. Reading your conversations with God is like listening to our big brother and seeing how he gets on.”
MERRILLYNE CHRISTENSEN. ORAMA CHRISTIAN TRUST. GREAT BARRIER ISLAND
“I found that reading Mark's conversations with God have been the encouragement for me to give this way of communicating with Him a go. I didn't think it would be easy, but when I tried writing out a conversation with God as Mark had been doing, to my amazement the words just flowed and God spoke to me, just as He did to Mark!”
MARIAN LEAKE. BAY OF PLENTY. NEW ZEALAND
“If there is one word that describes these conversations it is....honest. Honest questions, honest doubts and the God-honest grace that comes back at them. Water in a religious desert. I just cannot read enough of how God strips away Mark’s fearful facades. It reminds me of mine. God just keeps on showing in these conversations that He will not be boxed. “
DAVID BAIGENT. WAIHEKE ISLAND. NEW ZEALAND
"Mark’s written conversations with God have inspired me to do the same. Over a 9 month period I have gone from very brief ‘guidance’ words to more extensive, insightful, Scriptural understandings that are wonderfully up-building. The biggest thing is an increasing personal-ness and intimacy in my daily walk with the Lord."
GRAHAM BRADDOCK. ELDER GATEWAY CHURCH. HIBISCUS COAST. NEW ZEALAND
“If it sounds weird, wait till you get to know Mark Holloway. He Is one of the oddest bods I know. Like many of the great characters in the Bible, Mark is guy who walks out of step with the rest of the people. To religious church people, his practise of conversing with God will be heresy. Mark’s theory and teaching about talking to God is a threat to modern day Pharisees because, as in the Bible days, they are out of touch with the truth. To me there is no doubt Mark knows what he is talking about.”
JOHN WOODS. FOUNDER NZ GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE. AUTHOR. RAROTONGA
“How awesome now he talks to me. Mark's conversations have helped me unravel life’s mysteries”
GARETH WILLIAMS. NORTHLAND. NEW ZEALAND
“Mark's conversations with God have inspired me to covet that same "connectedness" with the One who has all the answers.”
PHIL PIGNERI. NEW ZEALAND
“Mark's book has inspired me to seek a closer more personal relationship with the one who can help me the most. At first the thought of Mark having these conversations with God seemed unusual and weird. But it soon inspired me to give it a go. Bring out a pen and write down my own personal conversation with God. Wow! What I found was that I too was getting answers and inspiration. Why didn't I know this before?”
GEOFF HILL. NEW ZEALAND
“Through reading Mark’s conversations with God we are constantly encouraged with the natural honest flow of conversation. It’s like listening in on a Father and son talk, but on a daily basis.”
WALTER AND TRACEY ANNEAR. NEW ZEALAND
“These conversations with God have enlightened me to open my heart and mind to feel and know that conversing with God gives me a deeper understanding of doing HIS will in my daily life.”
MARGE WICK. INTERNATIONAL FEDERATION OF CHRISTIAN CHAPLAINS, CERTIFIED. COPPELL TEXAS.
“Mark's conversations with God have freed me from condemnation. I now have a much more personal relationship with God, knowing He is interested in my everyday life.”
JOAN CRAWSHAW. CO FOUNDER ARAPOHUE BUSH CAMP. DARGAVILLE NEW ZEALAND
“When I read your conversations it’s a privilege to be allowed into a personal dialogue between you and your Father. You hear from God. Don’t doubt, don't give up.”
LUKE KAA-MORGAN. PASTOR, SONGWRITER. NEW ZEALAND
“As you read through Mark’s selection of conversations think that when Jesus said, ‘my sheep hear my voice’. He will probably speak to you differently than he does to Mark but I encourage you to listen. As Jesus said to the church of Laodicea. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and we will sit down at a table together.. Anyone.”
DAVID GARRATT. CO-FOUNDER. SCRIPTURE IN SONG. HAWAII
“ I have been talking to God since I was a young girl, but have never really listened to all that He has to say - or taken the time to always stop and listen. I ask and He continues to give regardless - what a loving Father! Reading your messages is endorsing what I have "known" all along and been telling others for years.... I thank you for having the courage to actually print and share your messages with others.
SHARON KOHL DENTON, TEXAS.
“This whole conversation thing has revolutionized my relationship with God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit! Thank you so much.”
SUSANNE WENDT. NORTHLAND. NEW ZEALAND.
I was a little sceptical at first, but Marks emails had a ring of truth so I tried it out. Seems I have a God who likes me, who tells me He is a Wonderful Counsellor (He is too), who talks very plainly about sacred cows eg Religiousness in the Church and sometimes gets angry about it, who makes me feel safe in the storm, who has a sense of humour and likes the Beatles just like I do and has long rambly conversations....
