The most recent book that I received from BookSneeze is From Blah to Awe: Shaking Up a Boring Faith by Jenna Lucado Bishop (Max Lucado’s daughter).
When I first read the title, I knew that this was a book I would enjoy reading. When I received it in the mail, peeled open the flap on the envelope, and slid the book out, the bright colorful cover drew my eyes. As I began to read the first chapter, the words drew my focus and my heart.
From Blah to Awe is a book targeting young women who are “stuck” in their faith. It is not a run-of-the-mill book. Instead, readers are drawn in and encouraged to incorporate their thoughts and ideas on the numerous journaling sections. The book is written in a modern personal style and is super easy to read. The book is broken up into two sections. The first is “Why Do I Get Bored With God?” and the second is “Does God Care if I am Bored With Him?”
In the first section, Jenna discusses the reasons that we sometimes find ourselves “bored” with God or our faith. She talks about the environment we live in, with its constant stress, noise, and entertainment. She talks about the way we sometimes limit God. She addresses many of the reasons that young women (and older women) sometimes allow their walk with God to stagnate.
In the second section, the author challenges young women to see God as He asks us to see Him. He is our bridegroom! He wants us to have an intimate relationship with Him.
I enjoyed this book, and it truly made me think. I believe that God used it to draw me closer to Him. I would suggest that you read this book, whatever age you may be. You can find it at Amazon or wherever Christian books are sold.
**** I received this book from BookSneeze in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
