Well people... I read it in one night! I couldn't put it down. It was so well written and with the right motives. My heart jumped and I could really feel the love of God pouring out. Let me tell you... for most of the book I forgot whose mother she was. She was so open, honest and just plain raw about her past hurts, the pain she had to endure, her shortcomings, but also the stark contrast with God's awesome love and amazing grace. In my mind, this was an amazing Christian testimony of how wonderful and loving our God is despite the many obstacles we go through in life. I found myself choking back tears of joy and smiling as I walked through her journey. Sometimes, I was just in awe with my jaw literally dropping. It's a moving walk through the tests and triumphs of Pattie's life to date.
Fellow readers, I believe you will find this book uplifting and encouraging. This is a story about a woman whom God had plans for... BIG plans! And just to encourage you, God has no favorites, what He did for one, He will do for you (Acts 10:34-35 MSG). I'm not saying all of you will have superstar celebrity sons, but rather that He has a great purpose and plan for each of us if we will just let go of control and trust Him. This book reminds us to not look at our circumstance, but keep our eyes on the Lord who always exceeds our expectations. Further, even when we turn away from Him, He pursues us. It was such a beautiful book, humbly written, and points to our Lord and Savior. Well done Pattie and A.J., Well done! I highly recommend!!
P.S. I purposely didn't go into content so as to not spoil the journey, but I did want to set good expectations. I hope this helps.
