What I Liked: I like the lesson; to be what God intended us to be.
What I Disliked: I was a little disappointed with this book. This author is one of my favorites, but the message in this book was simply not as strong as I had anticipated. The message was clear, it just didn't reach out and grab me like most of his other books do.
Overall Rating: Very Good.
Recommended Ages: 5 - 10
