Ever feel like everything is going against you? Ever feel like maybe there is a purpose for that? Robin Jones Gunn makes this point admirably. Telling many stories from her own life and growth from a beginning writer to a bestseller, she weaves in God’s purpose and life lessons throughout.
I absolutely loved this book. Since I am a writer myself, I could relate to and learn from a lot of what Robin went through in her career. Her dream as a young adult did not transpire the way she thought she wanted it to, but God directed her on the path He wanted and she was so blessed by that. I experience challenging times myself and often wonder what the purpose is for them. I found her examples very inspiring and faith building as she tells with transparency about her own struggles and how she handled them with faith and relying on God and other believers. God states in His Word “I will never leave you or forsake you” and Robin pours out refreshing proof of this.
The part that most touched my heart was the story of her father’s last days and her connection with him. I recently lost my own father and had similar experiences. It’s always difficult to lose a loved one, but so heartwarming to think of them walking around with Jesus!
This is a great book and I look forward to reading others by Robin Jones Gunn.
