I absolutely loved this book! The message in this book is one of hope! In our world right now, we need hope! This was my first book by Karen Kingsbury. I love how she writes! I want to read all fo her books now! This book shows us the wonderful power of restoration! Our god is so like that, when we walk away from Him he waits patiently for us to come back. In this book you will find out just what I am talking about. It is a must read! Thank You Karen Kigsbury! I can't wait until your next one comes out!

I am a SAHM of 4 and I am a Christian, but I sadly must admit I've never read a Christian book, other than the Bible (and I get off track with that). I'd love to read this one! Also, thank you for this wonderful blog. I read the review of "Raising Godly Children in an Ungodly World" and I'm on my way to Amazon to buy it now. laurad_1978 at yahoo dot com
