Publisher's Description

Do you know someone who needs some encouragement?  Perhaps that someone is you.

In When God Makes Lemonade, author Don Jacobson has collected real-life stories from around the world that show everyday folks discovering unexpected sweetness in the midst of sour circumstances.  Some are funny, others are sobering, and more than a few will bring tears of amazement.  But these true stories all have one thing in common: hope.

There's no question that life gives us "lemons," like issues with health, employment, and relationships.  But when those lemons become lemonade, it's as refreshing as a cold drink on a hot summer day.

It's true that in life "stuff" happens, but as you'll see in these stories, Lemonade Happens too!

    Book Review: When God Makes Lemonade

    When God Makes Lemonade is a compilation of a number of true stories from everyday people that are supposed to amaze and encourage the reader.

    It is specifically dedicated to single moms and their kids, who according to the book needs encouragement more than anyone.

    Similar to a cold cup of lemonade on a hot summer day, the book definitely is a refreshment to the soul. Several stories are indeed a testament to the reality of God in everyday peoples lives and it can serve as a reminder to each one of us that whatever situation we are in, we can get past them by the grace of God.

    The book is like a compilation of different testimonies of Gods goodness. The diversity of experiences show how God can work in different ways, but as Romans 8:28 says, in the end, all things will work together for our good since we love God.

    You know the old adage {I'm certain you do}, ‘When life gives you lemons make lemonade'? Have you ever wondered if the lemons, the sour moments of your life, can be used by God's hand to make something wonderful, refreshing, & restorative? In the sunny yellow covered book When God Makes Lemonade: True Stories That Amaze & Encourage created by Don Jacobson, you will find a plethora of real situations where God makes a redemptive lemonade, of sorts, out of the moments that are much less than sweet.

    The first "lemonade" story is by Don Jacobson, himself, & tells about a desperate time in the woods of Oregon when a malfunctioning in his new hunting gun almost takes his life. The stories that follow {there are over 60 in all, each written by a different author} are equally compelling truths from each writers' life. Each story is an easy read, typically about 3-4 pages. God takes illnesses, grief, heartaches, accidents_ & squeezes until unexpected good comes out. It isn't easy to see the good in the sour disappointments & hurts of life, but this book has made me more aware to look about me for God's guiding hand, to hope, & to trust that He is present & working even in the midst of the lemons.

    When God Makes Lemonade created by Don Jacobson is the latest book I've received from Thomas Nelson for reviewing.

    This is a really sweet book. It's a collection of true short stories, most of which are just a few pages, from a wide variety of writers.

    The one thing that all of the stories have in common is that in each one, God turned something bad into something that worked into good in the big picture.

    The stories really vary as to the circumstances_ but a lot of them are really major life events like injuries and accidents. But in each one, there is a silver lining that puts the traumatic event into perspective.

    It's an encouraging book, and I'm glad to see mention at the end that they are working to make this the first of a series.

    The only negative I can say about this book is that after a bit, knowing the theme_ you start to get a sense of doom in the start of each story. Because you know, something is going to happen. But every time, a rainbow follows.

    Title: When God Makes Lemonade: True Stories That Amaze and Encourage

    Author: Don Jacobson

    Date I Finished Reading: June 12,2013

    My Rating: 5/5

    I know from my own life that sometimes the hardest, hopeless, most painful circumstances in life often become God's greatest blessings. And that is what this book is all about. A compilation of 68 individual stories and testimonies, it truly is an excellent read.

    Each story you read in When God Makes Lemonade shows God's grace and wisdom as well as his love in the lives of those involved. Some of the stories made me laugh, some amazed me, some brought tears to my eyes, yet all of them gave praise to God.

    I would most definitely recommend this book, especially to those presently experiencing a trial or struggle. It is sure so inspire you as well as to strengthen your faith.

    Note: I received this book free from the publisher in exchange for my honest review. However, my opinions are my own.

    Life can be tough. Really tough.

    One thing I've learned, though, is that if you look hard enough, something great comes out of pretty much everything....even the unfortunate stuff.

    This inspirational book of short stories, When God Makes Lemonade, takes you through life experiences of normal, everyday folks who have experienced God's super-ceding over life's "bad dealings." Don Jacobsen brings together 68 common stories with a supernatural theme: God's turning life's "lemons" into sparkling, satisfying lemonade in one way or another.

    A few of the themes and topics were a bit heavy, and even though they ended with a bright ray of hope and restoration, I still could not get past the sad beginnings.For the most part, however, the book's sharings served to encourage and uplift me in many ways.

    For the weary, for the disenchanted, for the downhearted, When God Makes Lemonade is a great reminder of the fact that God is ultimately in control, and that this world and all within it is temporal and fleeting.
