ABOUT THE BOOK (300 pages):

When eighteen-year- old Victoria dies in the ICU and encounters an angel that gives her aprophetic mandate from God, her insatiable quest for spiritual enlightenment begins. As compelling as any contemporary novel, this dramatic and inspiring true story is a roller-coaster ride through supernatural experience, denominational enlightenment, and a teenage marriage that not only survives the loss of a child but thrives through unbeatable odds. Shining a fresh light on the theology of a Jewish Jesus, the author deftly weaves the history of the Christian faith from its genesis of the first century to the present-day Greco-Roman Christianity―all the while giving us an up close and personal glimpse of an extraordinary life.
A devoted wife, mother of six, and grandmother of nineteen, Victoria refuses to succumb to age and limitations. Far from Just a Little Girl, Victoria Sarvadi’s unconventional journey from teenage motherhood to Hebraic scholar and teacher will captivate and consume you from start to finish.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Dr. Victoria Sarvadi received her Th.M. and Th.D. in 2005 from the former Center for the Study of Biblical Research in Glendora, California, accredited at the time by the University of the State of California. A certified minister in the Hebraic Christian Global Community since 2000, she is a frequent contributor to Restore! Magazine, a publication of the HCGC. She has been a speaker for conferences, congregations, women’s ministry groups, Bible studies, and at the Vision for Israel Sukkot Conferences in Jerusalem, Israel. As a featured guest on national and international radio and television programs, her appearances on both the Crossover Program and Brad TV have been seen worldwide.

      "Just A Little Girl, by Victoria Sarvadi, is an autobiography written by a woman who has lived an astonishing life! From the beginning of the book, to the end, Victoria desires to love and serve Jesus. In between, there were times she felt she was lukewarm, and God turned her around and got her back on the right path. The path of passion and clinging to HIM.

      Victoria had a death experience, met her guardian angel, and was told it wasn't her time to die yet, but she was being blessed with several gifts. She was to use them fully. As we read, we see her "humanness". She has seasons of pain and suffering. Seasons of wealth and of being poor. Seasons of blessing others and of being blessed by others. Throughout most of her life people referred to her as "just a little girl." This comment sometimes caused her pain as she had so much to offer, but wasn't always taken very seriously.

      This book explains Victoria's walk with God, through a few different churches and denominations, as she and her spouse sought after the true God and how to live totally Spirit filled. In each chapter she teaches us a Hebrew word and explains its meaning to us as she shares parts of her life story. Her determination (and success) to continue her education in Hebraic studies while juggling parenting and running a business is inspirational.

      If you enjoy a good autobiography filled with wisdom, teaching, parenting and Jesus, you will love "Just A Little Girl." I received this book from The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review. This review is posted at Amazon, Goodreads and DeeperShopping. It was not available at CBD.

Thanks for the review Mary

“Just a Little Girl” is the true story of Victoria Sarvadi who was pronounced clinically dead at the age of 18.  She tells her life story and how she encountered an angel early in life and how that helped to shape her faith later in life.  She goes through the highs and lows of her life.  This book was easy to read and interesting.

Just a Little Girl was a very interesting read. I loved the autobiographical style of the book – I felt like I was living life as a neighbor of Victoria and her family.  She was very real in the book, letting me see her struggles and her spiritual journey.  Not everyone’s journey is fast and not every journey goes from Point A to Point B in a linear line.  I enjoyed the candidness of the book and enjoyed getting to know her much better through her testimony.

My pleasure, Nora.

This is a very powerful book. I loved reading about Victoria’s journey and what a journey it is.

I appreciate she can now see how God used everything, even the painful stuff, for good. Her story is a Genesis 5020 story.

What I also loved what that even after she met her angel she didn’t have an immediate transformation. God still had more work to do in her heart. Her and her husband wanted more they just didn’t know how to get there. They would have success then failure, success then failure.

Victoria’s perspective of speaking in tongues was one I could relate to. She didn’t want anything “weird” to happen with Jesus but she wanted more. I remember thinking speaking in tongues was for “those” Christians but not for me. But God placed a hunger in me and opened me up to all that the Holy Spirit could do. Victoria was at that point and her heart changed toward things of the Spirit and it wasn’t so weird anymore.

I LOVED this sentence she wrote on page 112: “But the question is not how much of the Holy Spirit do you have but rather how much of you have you allowed to be governed by His Spirit?” That is good stuff and such a great question.

Some many good things I could talk about in this book but I don’t want to go on and on. This is a non-fiction book that I highly recommend.

Grab your copy at your local bookstore, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or your favorite retailer.

"Just a Little Girl" is an honest, autobiography about Victoria Sarvadi’s winding journey of life from the moment she had to grown up too soon to the present, centered grandmother of 19 grandchildren. It’s told from the heart and captivates you from the very start. I felt like I was actually on the journey with her watching from afar willing her to push forward. Victoria is candid about her struggles in parenting, balancing life demands and following her true love…Jesus! Half way through I thought I knew the ending, but I’m so glad I read to the last page as I learned so much from her journey.

Woven throughout her story is her love of discovery about the Jewish roots of Jesus. She shared just enough of her knowledge to inspire me to dig deeper into these roots and I feel confident that her story will inspire others to take this leap of discovery as well.

What an emotional book this was. The author did an amazing job of keeping readers interested as she told her story. There were times in the book that I was able to relate to her and I loved her openness and honesty during her struggles. The book is well written and takes us inside the life of a woman who sees her guardian angel and how her life was changed by the encounter. We hear all the time that people can see an angel or have an out of body experience during a life threatening event. I like how the author described her encounter and how encouraged she became from the words the angel spoke to her.

Throughout the book I knew she was a very strong and determined woman by never giving up. Her hunger to have a deeper relationship with God was very evident. There was one relationship that definitely had an impact on her life. Her father always treated her like she couldn't do anything right . She felt like she could never please him and was continually made to feel "like a little girl." I never had a good relationship with my dad and I could feel her pain as she tried so hard to repair that relationship.

I was very impressed by the success she and her husband have achieved over the years. It took prayer and perseverance to overcome some of the obstacles on their journey. I was very intrigued by her desire to learn about the Herbraic studies and to understand the Bible with a clearer understanding. There were times as I read all the different responsibilities she had, that I began to feel overwhelmed. Sometimes we think we are doing these things to honor God; we get involved in every ministry in the church and before we know it we have forgotten about our family . I loved how she realized that she was doing things for the wrong reasons and needed to get back to having a one on one relationship with God. I loved the book know that I I will reread it because it has so many great nuggets of wisdom throughout the book. The book is a journey of family, business, emotional stress, success and healed relationships. I wrote down a couple of things from the book that really touched me and I will end my review with those.

"Sometimes God puts us in places to intentionally shake things up."

Sometimes life is about filling -in-the-blanks-, and once that's accomplished you can move on.

I received a copy of this book from Bookfun.org. The review is my honest opinion.
