Who I Am With You

Jessica Mason’s husband and young daughter died in a tragic accident. She is grieving more than one loss and also facing life as a single mom with her unborn child. Ridley Chesterfield is hiding out in Hope Springs, Idaho, avoiding a political scandal and reeling from false media headlines that have hurt his good name. Both hurting, they discover that they are neighbors and a stray dog brings them together. Are they ready to step out in faith and begin dating one another. 

Who I Am With You weaves together a modern-day romance with Jessica’s great-grandfather’s story from the 1930s, reminding us that some truths can cross generations and that faith has the power to change families forever.

The power of prayer is so important and was a central theme in the book. I loved how each character turned to prayer before making decisions. This is the first book by Robin Lee Hatcher, I look forward to the next book

Keep Believing, Keep Fighting

Our lives are minefields of challenges, that take their toll on our courage, our conviction, and even our faith. But God whispers to the weary, Don’t give up. Drawing from inspiring biblical stories and first-person testimonies of perseverance, bestselling author and pastor Kyle Idleman encourages you to cast your concerns on God, trust in his love and timing, pray for patience and strength, and seek out support in the family of God.

I have read the author’s other books, “The End Of Me” and “Not A Fan,” and “Don’t Give Up” was just as encouraging. Kyle teaches us to be free from everything that entangles and hinders us from moving forward and how to draw strength from God.

Don’t Give Up is just what we all need to bring ourselves into the life that God meant for all of us. Kyle challenges me to step up in my life to keep believing and persevere and to run the race that God has set out for me. We have all faced a time or two when we wanted to throw the towel in, give up or walk away, Don’t Give Up will show us what we need to do to stand tall and push forward and experience what God has in store for us. Kyle has a unique way of writing that pulls the reader in from page one and relate to the reader. I throughly enjoyed the how the author used different examples from the Bible, for instance, Hebrews chapter 11 lists people who faced enormous challenges yet found the faith to keep believing and the courage to keep fighting. We should do the same every day, to not give up. God know’s our plans way before we do, we need to trust Him in everything.

Don’t Give Up should be on everyone’s to be read list. 

I received the Don’t Give Up from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
