I received this book for free from Booksneeze in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own. I chose to read this book, because I had several friends that read it and loved it. I probably made it through the first 50 pages and I was struggling to read any more. I would read a chapter, then go read another book. I had a very hard time staying interested in the book. Once I made it to 5 chapters from the end of the book, I was finally interested. I think the book is very well written. Judah Smith raises some great points. I loved hearing about grace and God loving us just where we are. He talks about not being able to earn your way into heaven. I love that.

I love any time I get a chance to read anything by Andrew Klavan. I also love that I can pass these books onto my teenage son and he loves reading them also. I love the characters in Andrew Klavan's books. Will and Meredith captured my heart and I loved reading about them. I would love to follow them in another book!

The cover of this book looked cute and piqued my interest. I ordered the e-book from Booksneeze to read and honestly was really disappointed in the book. The cover of the book was much cuter than the book itself, in my opinion. I think it was written well, but I had a hard time staying interested in the story.

Mysteries are usually not my favorite genre to read, but I have really been into mysteries lately. I had never heard of Lis Wiehl, but I decided to give one of her books a try. I loved most of the book. I was trying to figure out who the murderer was from the third or fourth chapter, but I never would have guessed who it was.

I ordered Stress Test without having any idea what to expect. It's been a long time since I have read a mystery or suspenseful book and I had no idea what to expect. I am so glad that I ordered Stress Test and gave it a try. I enjoyed this book more than any book I have read in a long time. It was definitely a page turner! I could not wait to see what happened to Dr. Matt Newman.

PTSD: A Spouse's Perspective by Erica David is a book written by the wife of a man that came home from war a changed man. He was emotionally and verbally abusive. It drove Erica into a deep depression. She constantly felt like she was walking through a minefield all the time. She and her children had no idea what was going on. She does a great job explaining the symptoms, causes, etc of PTSD. I think this book is a great read for anyone that has been through verbal, emotional or physical abuse. I downloaded this e-book this afternoon and read it completely in a couple of hours. It was easily read and definitely kept my attention!

Overcoming Abuse God's Way: Rags to Riches by Janet Marie Napper and Brenda Branson is a memoir about one lady's path to overcoming abuse and forgiving her abuser. Growing up in a verbally and emotionally abusive home, I could easily relate to a lot of the emotions in this book. I am not sure I would recommend this book to everyone, but for those of us that have dealt with abuse, it is very helpful. The scriptures at the end of each chapter were like a breath of fresh air.

The description of the book reads:
Our family has been under some crazy spiritual attack so far this year and I have been feeling some major discouragement. Not full blown depression, as I have faced many times before, but this heavy feeling of defeat and despair. Thanks to a sweet friend, I was reminded this morning that we should be encouraged by attacks from the devil. If God didn't have a great plan for our lives, we would not be a threat to the devil and we would not be facing these attacks. Thanks to her encouragement this morning, I feel peace and know that we are going to be okay. So, starting this morning, I am choosing joy. The devil is not going to pull me into his trap of defeat and despair. Christ in me is so much more powerful than the devil. Now I have My God is Greater on repeat in my head. What a great song to dwell on this morning. If my God is for us, who can ever stop us...
So, be encouraged. No matter what you are going through or what you are facing, God has gone before you. Your trials did not surprise Him. There is a reason for your pain and He will use your pain for His purpose.
