About the Book

For some, the word might seem perplexing; for others, it might create sudden displeasure inside because it is seen as weak and incapable. However, in the new book by author Trish Pennala, submission is to be viewed as not powerless but powerful under the command of God, the creator of heaven and earth. Submission to Glory: Living a Life That Glorifies God is Trish’s rally call to men and women alike to not look down on submission in their lives but to see it as an opportunity to glorify God and be blessed in the process. Trish journeys first into discussing her childhood growing up as one of nine children, raised by a loving mother and father who taught them first about Jesus Christ and his submission to God on the cross. This knowledge, along with loving guidance and discipline, reinforced in Trish’s mind that submitting to God helped in controlling oneself against the fleshy desires of the world to align with God’s will and plan.

As the book continues, Trish further explores the concept of submission and humans’ grapple with it, starting with Eve’s deception from the serpent that emerged from a lack of submission to God and his wishes. Her choice to eat the forbidden fruit and to convince Adam to do the same led them down a spiral of insubordination that was only rectified through Jesus’s death and resurrection. Trish also expands on submission in marriage (of a wife submitting to her God-serving husband), the benefits of submission, and the opportunities to recognize and praise God when allowing him full reign in one’s life. Submission may get criticized when it comes to the me-centered desires of this world, but in God’s eyes, it is the closest form to real love that a person could ever show his/her creator!

About the Author

As a Christian, Trish loves nothing more than to help inspire and develop the potential in other people and her interests are far more of a spiritual aspect. She has an overpowering love for the Lord and recognizes He is the reason for her inspiration. Prior to submitting her life to Christ, she spent several years fighting the influential forces that almost destroyed her life both spiritually and physically.

With enthusiasm, Trish lives to tell her story of redemption. She and her husband Brian live in a suburb of Dallas, Texas and are active members of Parkway Hills Baptist Church in Plano. She enjoys the exposure of being involved with the women’s ministry and devotes much of her time to the studies of spirituality and helping others.
