These two beautiful stories will no doubt capture your heart and mind as they remind you of Jesus, the one and only. We need to be continually reminded of the permanent and unchanging One in this life where so little is certain. The two memoirs are two separate stories but really, like all of our stories, are part of His big story. Each time I turned the page I was continually pointed back to Jesus. As you read, you will be reminded of His great faithfulness and His amazing redemptive plan.
Amanda and Rachael graciously guide readers through many tensions that we have tried to simplify to either/or when they’re really both/and. Tensions like fear and faith, temporary and eternal, the details and the big picture, the infinite and the finite, God’s trustworthiness and our present difficulties, how everything and nothing both simultaneously matter.
A good Christian read is one that is based on the Truth and leaves you wanting to know and love Jesus more. That is what this book did. We need to know the truth because the truth will set us free and enable us to live the abundant life Jesus paid for.
“We study and know and memorize God’s Word because we cannot waste any more of our precious time on this earth believing the lies. Even the lies that sound really good and entertaining and close enough.”
