My Review :
This book was such a blessing to me. The words that Jennie wrote spoke to me on such a deep level, I will carry the lessons with me for years to come.
In this book, she writes about a time of such tragedy that no parent ever even wants to imagine. The way that she truthfully walks us through what that season looked like is inspiring.
You can tell how much she loves God. She has a faith that I aspire to have.
She made some profound statements that really stuck out to me. One was about female friendships, and the other was about going through hard times. I honestly am going to use her example as part of a presentation that Eric and I are doing this week. She changed my whole course of thinking.
My biggest takeaway? “It’s a privilege to be trusted with this pain.”
What?! Have you ever considered your pain to be a privilege? That whole idea was astonishing to me when I first read it…but when I really stopped to think about it – it makes total sense.
God gives you your battles for a reason. No one else will have your same battle. He picked you. You have the power to be a blessing to someone else by sharing your testimony. ❤️
I loved this book.
