I know I have me MIA for about a week now. But, there is a big reason why. God is giving me more to write about and my nose has been in so many books!
There is a completely NEW section called “Book Reviews” for some of my favorite reads that I have been blessed to be able to review from publishers. While there are other books that I read in my spare time. I read a wide variety of genre’s. Mostly Christian Living and Self-Help books but I also love an occasional Women’s Fiction.
I once read a quote that said in order to be a great writer, you must both read and write! We will see how true this is coming up in these next couple weeks!
New Book Reviews To Look For Soon:
Everybody Always (Bob Goff)
The Root of Rejection (Joyce Meyer)
Overcoming Fear: The Supernatural Strategy to Live In Freedom (Dawna de Silva)
Pressure Points:A Guide to Navigating Student Stress (Shelby Abbott)
True You written by Susan J.Sohn, is a journey through different women’s life experiences that will leave you with peace and hope for the future. Through powerful, gut-wrenching, emotional testimonies women have shared, you will end this book knowing you are not alone. Because of they were raw about their life experiences, feelings, and emotions this book was able to be written. Their vulnerability has brought an opportunity for healing throughout every single page. There are various topics and situations covered from their heart to yours.
I personally related to many women throughout the chapters of this book. It is a book to meditate on, apply, and can bring healing if your heart is open. I really appreciated how at the end of each chapter Susan lists suggestions and questions to help you apply what you have read. There were a few scriptural references here and there. But, Susan’s heart and love for empowering and encouraging women shines throughout the entire book. At certain points during the book, I felt the book was hard to read due to the fact that I had not been through what they had been through. However, I know heart and soul was put into this book. I wish I would have read this when I was battling mental illness and dealing with abuse. It would have brought me so much more peace back then to know I was not alone!
Overall, I give this book a 4 out of 5. I believe that many people who pick up this book and use what Susan has given them will experience freedom and love like never before. I recommend True You to anyone who may be struggling with self-worth, depression, anxiety or may be feeling like they are alone. I also recommend this book to women who desire to be all God has called them to be. Each testimony is packed with true experiences from women like you and me.
A big thank you to the author Susan for putting her heart and soul into each and every page and changing the lives of each women behind each story. I also want to thank Broadstreet Publishing for giving me the opportunity to review this book!
