I don't have as much time to read as I'd like so don't expect too much, but here you will find my opinion of books I've read. I'll let you know if I like a book or not, and why. Some books I might recommend and others I might tell you to avoid. But keep in mind this just my opinion.
I'd love for you to leave comments and let me know if you read the same book and what you thought about it. If you know of a book you think I should read and review, leave a comment and let me know.
Beautiful Things Happen When A Woman Trusts God
By Sheila Walsh
Life is hard, sometimes cruel, and often disappointing. Even if we are lucky enough to have great beginning, circumstances happen all along the way which are intended for our destruction.
In this book, Sheila gives biblical accounts of people like David, Paul, Joseph, and others to remind us that we are not the first to face such life changing circumstances, and that overcoming those circumstances then moving on into a place of victory is possible. Her personal testimony is proof that even today, God brings hope, healing, and beauty into the messed up lives of people who choose to trust Him with everything.
In the introduction of the book, Sheila writes, “I trust that you will find yourself in the pages of this book…” I did. Is there a woman alive who has not, to some degree, been wounded or made fearful?
Many chapters, made me cry, and every chapter inspired me to pray. I was encouraged to trust God with the big stuff as well as with the smallest details of my life.
The in-depth Bible study at the end of the book is helpful. I wish I would have done the study concurrently with each corresponding chapter instead of waiting until I was finished reading to begin the study.
