“Made Well” ~Jenny Simmons and Margaret Feinberg~ Review

madewell

Synopsis:

From the woman fighting cancer to the man who has lost his child to the girl sinking into depression, so many of us are engaged in daily battles as we long for healing. When he walked the earth, Jesus said to an unwell man, “Do you want to be made well?” His invitation stretched beyond physical healing–he sought to restore the soul. The same invitation stands for us today.

For anyone struggling on the journey toward wholeness, singer/songwriter Jenny Simmons offers a resting place and a friend along the way. With personal insight into emotional pain, she invites readers to encounter a God who is working out their restoration–often in surprising “half-baked” ways. Her humorous and inspirational prose lights a path toward wholeness. Anyone trying to find their way to spiritual, mental, and emotional healing will benefit from Jenny’s vulnerable and compassionate stories of being made well in the midst of a messy life.

Review:

Wow! Just wow! If you are ever having a crappy day and just need a little lifting of the soul, you should read this book. This book has it all, it has personal stories, ones of sadness and triumph. AND makes us realize the fact that God’s got this even when we don’t. It is an amazing book!

It had me in tears, it had me laughing, it had me shaking my head yes and it made me realize that it’s OK to not have your life together. It’s OK because God’s got your back, he has plans for us and he wants to restore our souls, irregardless of what is going on in our lives. My favorite story was about the dead animal smell…. turns out it was food gone bad in a microwave that never got used. It’s the little things that make your life interesting!

The author is amazing, she is a relatable person and makes it an easy read! I flew through the book within a day and it is a book I will probably be reading again! I will be recommending it too!! I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
