    Practical, Down to Earth

    When I saw the title of this book, I was very curious to know what guacamole had to do with the Christian life? If I ever have the privilege to meet Carrie Stephens, I am pretty sure we would be best friends for life. Not only is she down to earth, but she had me in stitches with her personal stories, and her footnotes.

    However, her love for her family, friends, people in general & the God of creation comes out in every page of this well-written book. I especially saw this in Chapter 12 when she loves on those less fortunate than herself the way Jesus would have.

    Lastly, I was very impressed how she communicated at the end of the book how to think, feel, & act chapter by chapter. This gave me some practical ways to put into practice everything that I had read.

    This book is real and relevant. Carrie writes in way that leaves you laughing and crying. Her experiences as pastors wife are relatable. As a pastor and pastor wife it was like she was in my head. We are not some side dish that no one eats. She uses practical life to bring light to biblical truths.

    Holy Guacamole

    By: Carrie Stephens

    *REVIEW*

    Holy Guacamole is wholly original and compelling. This book asks the hard questions-who are you, who did you used to be, how did you end up here, and where do you really want to go now? We all know there are no easy answers. Life is not perfect, and it never will be.

    "Despite what social media's curated posts and "inspirational" memes may declare, more hustle and better hype can't bring peace in the midst of the storms of life, cure the sickness of our societies, or teach us to love one another..."

    If you are reading this, odds are you are a bookstagrammer. I'll bet you want more followers, recognition, cool arcs, 3,000 comments, etc. because don't we all? If your life-the real one-is in shambles, will Instagram save you? I think we all try way too hard to appear perfect, but we all know that it's an illusion. My point is that none of us have the ability to save ourselves or undo anything from the past or change what we feel.

    So, what can you do? This book is divided into chapters, detailing the ways in which you can't save yourself and what to do instead:

    *Enoughness

    *Quitting

    *The Information Highway

    *Perfectionism

    *Cynicism

    *Consumerism

    *Doubting

    *Success

    *Keeping Score

    *Fame

    And, finally, explaining how you are already saved and how you can make the world a better place.

    "...engage your whole life in pursuing God and people with as much as you can offer them. You were made for this purpose, to love and be loved in a world that is starving for more of everything God has already provided for us all."

    Holy Guacamole genuinely surprised me. I was expecting a fairly typical self help book, but that is not what I got. This book is entertaining, relatable, honest, conversational and filled with amazing insightful knowledge. This little book packs a big punch! I recommend for any person seeking answers in a way that is not preachy or heavy handed. Carrie Stephens has done an excellent job, and I'm excited to read more!

    Holy Guacamole by Carrie Stephens highlights how we are each unique and loved by God. I have never enjoyed reading footnotes as much as I did in this book as each one was a humourous sidenote to what was written in the book! I could relate to how she wrote about real life and how things don't always work out the way they are expected to, but even still we are loved by God. This would make a delightful gift.

    I really enjoyed reading this book. Carrie uses a lot of real-life examples and humor to make this relatable to our everyday experiences. But there is also a lot of honesty in the book as she talks about being a pastor's wife and raising children and all of the expectations that come with those roles. I thought that the metaphor of guacamole was wonderful for illustrating how each and every one of us is precious in God's sight. The first time that she described the metaphor where she was talking with her friend and feeling insignificant like a side of rice and beans, this really resonated with me. I found myself rereading the words and wanting to soak them into my soul. If you are looking for practical ways in your life to see how God has specifically chosen and delights in you, then this book is a perfect selection.
