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.

Just a Little Girl by Victoria Sarvadi is quite an inspiring memoir. The author shares her spiritual journey from childhood to the present and makes the reader feel as if she is just sharing with a friend across the kitchen table. Even as a teenager she felt God's love in a transformational way and knew she needed people around her who were motivated by the Spirit of God to offer counsel and direction. In a near death experience, Victoria meets her guardian angel and begins to realize God has a plan for her life. Through financial highs and lows, physical health and illness, and a monumentally stressed life, the author shares how God molded her theological beliefs and continued to strengthen her belief in Yeshua. As she and her husband worshiped in and learned from different denominations she truly was just a little girl who was ready to let God use her. This is a compelling story of a woman who knew God had called her to seek Him, receive His truth and teach it and that is what she did.

Just a Little Girl was a very interesting read. I enjoyed the autobiographical style of the book. It seemed very personal and relatable. Her testimony very real in the book, showing her struggles and her spiritual journey. I enjoyed the candidness of the book and enjoyed getting to know her much better through her testimony.

Just A Little Girl by Victoria Sarvadi is an incredibly inspiring book. Not only does the author share her amazing life journey, successes, and challenging times, but also she imparts wisdom and knowledge about Yeshua and the Jewish foundation of Christianity.
Her life story, the “passionate pursuit” of the Jewish Jesus—Yeshua—begins as a teenage mother with her death on an ICU bed when a powerful messenger (Peretz—Messiah) reveals to her the grid of time and space for the rest of her life—God’s plan for her future. As she returns to life, God’s instruction for her is to access the gifts of knowledge, wisdom, and understanding, already gifted to her.
Her intriguing life story, in itself, is reason enough to read the book but there is so much more. She imparts the discoveries and knowledge that she has acquired concerning the Jewish roots of Christianity; enlightenment about Christian denominations; and Hebrew language, culture, and religious traditions. There is so much important information to revisit and study again. In addition, the Endnotes contain a wealth of references, websites, and scriptures that can be explored by those who desire to delve deeper. I cannot recommend enough this book that I received through TBCN in exchange for an honest review. I apologize that I did not post this review earlier.
