About the Book
Are you experiencing the deep peace and joy that connection with God as your Father can bring? Are you confident in His presence? Do you feel your worth and value to God ebbs and flows according to how “good” or “bad” you are?
Working for God is hard. Trying to serve Him from a distance is even harder.
Speaking from personal experience, Anastasya Laverdiere conveys the message that the life of service and devotion to God must come from relationship with Him as His child to experience the fullness of what He offers. Servant Sons and Daughters builds a strong biblical basis to receive life-changing revelation of our true identity and inheritance as God’s children.
If you long for deeper intimacy with God, Servant Sons and Daughters is a journey into the heart He has towards you and an invitation to receive His best for you in every area of your life.

My Personal Review ~ 4.5 stars ~
What a simply wonderful book! I feel like Servant Sons and Daughters: Serving Father God from a Place of Sonship by Anastasya Laverdiere is a book that the Christian community can truly benefit from. It speaks some essential truths about our identity as Christians and taking hold of all that God offers us when we become part of His family by Jesus’ blood – abundant life!
Without security in our position with God, we cannot fully live out our callings to their potential. It is a debilitating thing to try living without an inner sense of being loved and accepted, and no less debilitating to try to serve a Holy God from a distance. (Servant Sons & Daughters by Anastasya Laverdiere)
This book drew me in right away, touching my heart deeply. I love how the author meshes the ideas of being God’s beloved child with serving Him & walking in righteousness. So beautiful. Servant Sons & Daughters was a comfort and inspiration, and I kept thinking of people I wanted to buy it for! I also shared snippets of it with my young adult Bible study group, as we are talking about God’s love and our identity.
Anastasya Laverdiere has a lovely voice in writing. And depth and wisdom to share! I found lots of beautiful and meaningful content and did lots of highlighting!
But we must receive it because of the love and graciousness of the Father. We must take Him at His word and arm ourselves against the lies of the enemy and even our own flesh that would seek to enslave us to shame and guilt. (Servant Sons & Daughters by Anastasya Laverdiere)
Servant Sons & Daughters talks about embracing our identity as children of God. Understanding what that means for us (example: we have the power of the Holy Spirit living in us). And yes … serving Him with joy from a secure position of cherished daughter. We journey through stories about Joshua from the Old Testament, and the prodigal son from one of Jesus’ parables. It was really neat how Anastasya dissected the story of the prodigal son and used it to bring this book and its points to light.
I also appreciated the knowledge and research put into this. Definitions of words are expounded upon, stories unpacked, Greek words in Bible passages talked about, etc. I really like that.
This word “Abba” carries the instruction to seek out an “affectionate, dependent relationship” with our Father in which we recognize His power and majesty but also His desire to come close. (Servant Sons & Daughters by Anastasya Laverdiere)
If we do not recognize what Christ has won for us, we will stay beneath the stuff we are actually “seated above”. (Servant Sons & Daughters by Anastasya Laverdiere)
I very much enjoyed this Christian Living book. It was spectacular. I was blessed. It had me searching the Scripture and understanding anew His Truth. It had me increasingly joyful and thankful, thinking about the glorious fact that He wants me. I’m His daughter. I think Anastasya Laverdiere did a wonderful job and I believe God can use it in powerful ways! Such a needed message!
This was always His plan, to be your Father and to have you as His child. His church is a family in which you belong! Let your heart exclaim truly, “I was always wanted. Now I am His and He is mine … forever! (Servant Sons & Daughters by Anastasya Laverdiere)
Wear His love with confidence. (Servant Sons & Daughters by Anastasya Laverdiere)
I will definitely read more by this author if she comes out with other books!
