When I was growing up my Dad would say, “When you grow up, I hope you have a child just like you.”
My reply was the same every time. “I hope I do. Because she’ll be awesome!”
But that confidence was only skin deep. After the lights were out and the house was quiet, I would wonder–was I lovable with my strong opinions and emotions on my sleeve? What about when I made mistakes or let those around me down? Was I enough?
Maybe you’ve wondered some of those same questions.
I was first attracted to this book because of the design. It is a flip book, the first side is in blue typeset with fifty devotionals about being enough.
- Even when you need affirmation
- Even when you feel unqualified
- Even when you can’t do everything for everyone
When you flip the book over the typeset is in red. The fifty devotionals are about never being too much.
- Even when you have no filter
- Even when you have lots of ideas
- Even when you’re like a tornado
But even if a book is the cutest in the world, what really matters is the content.
This book does not disappoint. Each devotional is short with a Bible verse and a story that only takes a couple of minutes to read. I found the words stuck with me throughout the day though. This is a book I wish I would have read when I was a teenager. But, even as an adult, the words were encouraging, positive and reinforced truths that are easy to forget.
