tfowl5 Stars Out Of 5Not just an adoption story....June 3, 2018tfowlQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book is a refreshing departure from the normal inspirational offerings. A lot of books in this genre seem to tie up quite nicely with a big red bow and finish with "they all lived happily ever after" ending. Teresa's book is more real, showing us the consequences of saying yes to God when he interrupts our plans. While God's plans are always what is best for us, many times they are not the easiest path. Teresa invites us into her story, - the ups, the downs, in a very real way. Her story doesn't end with the big red boy but it does end with a sense that God has much more to do in her life and I look forward to reading more of her story. I was able to really connect with her and was able to get a lot of application from this book.
Another issue I typically have with inspirational Christian writing is the sloppy handling of the scripture, a lot of times the authors will take verses out of context or twist it to fit their understanding. Teresa is very careful in handling scripture and I was very happy to see her explaining the correct context of Jeremiah 29:11 - something I don't see very often.
I highly recommend this book. It would be very good for a book club.
Jennifer Eschenbach5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent BookMay 21, 2018Jennifer EschenbachQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0There are not words to describe how this book has 'interrupted' my way of thinking. Teresa's story not only inspires, but challenges in the best possible way to think outside the box, to see God's movement in new and exciting ways, and to truly ask ourselves if we are living complacently and comfortably instead of boldly and abundantly. Teresa is raw and honest about the challenges she has faced, the moments that were tough and exhilirating to walk through, and the ways in which God has interrupted what she thought was the perfect plan. It has given me hope to believe that perhaps God too has given me what I once wanted to help me realize I was made for more.
