Good morning all! Today's review is a deviation from what I normally bring you but I was so moved reading it that I just had to share. I am sure many of you have heard of this book, and have maybe even read this book. If you haven't, no matter what faith you may or may not have I believe it's worth taking the time to check out.
I sat down last night after finished one of my normal paranormal books and wanted something light and easy to read to take a break. I had picked this up at the library because of a recommendation. Opening it up I started reading, figuring it would take long as the book is only about 228 pages and in REALLY big print. I discovered rather quickly that this wasn't going to be a light hearted read, quick yes, but one that would bring tears to my eyes, raise the hairs on my arms and give me goose bumps more than once.
Now I am of no devout faith, I don't go to church religiously, and don't pray as much as maybe I should, but I do have a belief in god and a higher power. I do teach my children about god and his rules and expectations. I consider myself a Christian in a general sense, though have always had those questions and found it hard to put full faith in the bible. This book hasn't changed that thought (about the bible) but it did make me sit back and think, maybe I should put a little more effort into my faith.
I enjoyed this read and will probably grab my own copy to fall back on when I am feeling that life has me down, that God has forgotten me, when my faith is at it's worst. To remind me that we aren't given more than we can handle even if we think it is.
Will this book change your mind on your faith? I don't know, but I do say read it with an open mind and an open heart and draw your own feelings from it.
Have you read the book? Share your thoughts with me, leave me a comment!
