This book was a lovely look at a very talented young girl and her family. Told from the viewpoint of her mother, we are taken into this familys home and given a glimpse of what their lives was like and how Akianes talent was allowed to progress and be nurtured. This family is a lot like any family, with good times and bad times, sickness and financial problems. I really think it was great that Akianes mom held back her mommy impulses of getting angry, especially when her daughter was making such a mess in creating her art. I am glad she saw such talent in her daughter even though I was cringing myself as I read those parts. Akiane has a very artistic nature and her mother really showed that in her writing of how her young daughter would act and think. This is not only this familys journey but it is a lovely book containing many of Akianes paintings and her poetry that goes along with it. I look forward to seeing how her talent will grow as she becomes a young woman. I was given this book for an honest review from The Book Club Network, Inc. (TBCN) and the opinions are my own.
Akiane: Her Life, her art, her poetry***** by Foreli and Akiane Kramarik
This is a fascinating book about a very young girl, age 4 at the time, who met God and started on an amazing journey. Akiane's mother, Foreli, tells her story and shows how God impacted the whole family. Their life wasn't easy and they moved often, but Akiane continued (and still does) her drawings and paintings of what God reveals to her. She also writes poems that have been included in the book along with photos of her amazing artwork. I love her storyhow God called her for a unique mission and how she gives Him all the glory.
