“Re-Created for Faith – Training in Spiritual Warfare Through a Mother’s Heavenly Assignment” by author Ashley K. Adams is a poignant true account of one mother’s faith and fight for her son’s life. This is the story of her son Carston Ford Adams. It is the powerful non-fiction inspirational Christian book of spiritual and physical worlds doing battle.
This was an emotional book for me to read. Many times there were tears blurring my vision as I read it. My daughter has a special needs son, and I thought of her and my sweet grandson often when reading. The author faced many difficulties and struggles. Her faith and trust in God is inspiring.
The book begins with acknowledgments, a dedication to Carston, his picture, and a note from the author. Next come eleven chapters. Each one begins with a relevant scripture. The author openly shares a portion of her story, provides scripture listed as ”Artillery Vault,” gives a Faith a Checkpoint for encouragement, and concludes with Weapons of Truth, a page for scripture study and notes.
The author is transparent in her writing. She freely tells her story in words that grab at heartstrings. At times I could feel her pain. Her style of writing is clear and focused. This is a well planned, organized, and written book. I loved all of the scripture references. It was easy to recognize that she is a woman of faith.
This book will help many people. It is a wonderful tool for spiritual warfare, mothers with sick or disabled children, and anyone wanting to read inspiring true stories. I highly recommend it and give it a 5 star rating. A copy was provided by Celebrate Lit, but these are my honest words.
About the Book
Book: Re-Created for Faith
Author: Ashley K. Adams
Genre: Christian Nonfiction: Inspirational
Release date: October 25, 2021
In the face of impossible odds, Ashley Adams considered no other option but to rank up in faith, pairing with God on the invisible battlefield over her baby boy’s life.
Re-Created for Faith is the story of Carston Ford Adams and how the spiritual and physical world collided for his existence. When all the voices were crying out “death,” his mother believed for more. There had to be a purpose for these obstacles in her son’s life, but what? How could Ashley triumph over what was sealed for his fate? She was about to find out.
Through intense devotion to God’s word and prayer every day, God gave Ashley a fresh faith and supernatural strength to relentlessly pursue saving Carston’s life. This fight was not merely material but spiritual, a battle between forces of life and death. The hospital room became her training ground of righteousness as God taught her how to use the weapons He has given every believer to fight an enemy only interested in our destruction. Refusing to give up, Ashley experienced many breakthroughs-signs, visions, and answers for some of the biggest decisions she would ever have to make. Miracle after miracle pointed directly to the only One who could truly heal, which may have baffled the experts but spurred her on to keep fighting.
Re-Created for Faith shows what is possible when one mother refuses to back down to the enemy and how to anchor these strategies in everyday life to advance in our battles. When we go beyond belief to action, believing God for a victory regardless of the visible, miracles really do occur, and God’s glory is revealed…big time.
“For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.” (2 Corinthians 10:3-4)

More from Ashley
This mission from God all stemmed from one simple prayer and the greatest thirst for Him that could not be quenched. “God, use me!” I prayed day after day, not knowing that God’s plan begun the moment I first uttered those words. Nine months later, He literally delivered what was the most precious and greatest challenge of my faith. In the midst of fighting for my son’s life, I didn’t have much of a choice but to record every detail of battle and victory. This story wasn’t an idea; it didn’t stem from a dream. God chose this assignment for me, a journey much bigger than I would have ever chosen for myself, and so in obedience to His command, I wrote. A simple prayer and a battlefield became my pencil and paper as I revealed the power of God and miracles He still performs today. When you crack open my book, I dare you to make a stronger commitment to Christ and rank up in faith as you relive the battle with me, learning my lessons along the way to receive the crown of victory.
