What people are saying about Life in the Spirit:

Kris Vallotton

Bethel Church, Redding, CA

In his new book, Life in the Spirit, J.R. Polhemus shares his journey from the depths of despair to a place of peace, joy and power in the Holy Spirit. J.R.’s insights are inspiring, his stories are gripping, and his research is compelling. Yet Life in the Spirit is more than a theological study or a collection of exciting stories, it’s a training manual filled with wisdom, written from the front lines of the battle field of life. You won’t want to miss this book!

Life in the Spirit invites readers to live adventurously and climb to new heights in their faith. My friend J.R. will challenge and transform your perspective on what it means to follow the Holy Spirit. If you desire to deepen your relationship with Holy Spirit, this book is for you!

Graham Cooke

Author, Speaker, Consultant

J.R. is a leader, filled with the Spirit, who enjoys a wide-eyed sense of wonder about the Lord and His Kingdom. It shows up in how he speaks, acts and leads. I love his honesty in this book. We should all share stories of our needs, failings and growth opportunities created in us by the beauty and power of the Holy Spirit.
