Coming Soon: Book Review!

Remember when i wrote this post about Angela Thomas' teachings at the Beautiful Conference? How much i loved her? Well, after the conference i immediately looked her up on Facebook. Of course. :) And earlier this week, she had this post:

Attention Bloggers... Want to review my yet-to-be released book, Do You Know Who I AM?? If so, please email...

Wait, whaaaaat?! :) I was scrolling really fast thru facebook & had to go back when i realized i saw "attention bloggers"! So i emailed them & quickly got a response. She asked if i could write a 200 word  review (minimum) & if i could do it by the first week of October. Woah! I used to read books really quickly, but now not so much! It's much harder as a working adult! HA! I didn't even finish a whole book on VACATION (though that one was quite thick)! So i wrote back & said i could do the 200 words, but wasn't sure about having it ready the first week of October. I mean, i don't want to SKIM the thing... i want to really read it & let the words soak in! So I asked if i could email them the first week of October & let them know if i was close to being finished. And she said that was great! And yesterday, it arrived! :)


I'm really excited! It looks really good! I had no idea what it was about. I read the back & I'd like to share what it says: 

Women of all stages of life will identify with honest questions from the heart of Angela Thomas as she asks God if He knows her - and loves her - just as she is...right now. In each chapter, she asks a different question that only God can answer: questions like, "Do you know i am trembling inside?" "Do you know i am lonely?" and "Do you know i am ordinary?". Each time Angela voices these questions to God, she finds that God's answer is always, "Yes. I know your heart. I see your struggle. Do you know who I AM?"

With her innate ability to connect with women on both an emotional & spiritual level, Angela reveals that the secret to being known & loved lies in an intimate understanding of who God is. Each struggle is explored through vivid storytelling, biblical teaching & practical application. This teaching assures readers that their personal, spiritual & eternal fulfillment is not dependent on getting themselves together first. Rather, God has a purpose for them just as they are - even if they feel broken, afraid, disappointed or disillusioned. 

Sounds good, huh?! And trust me... if she writes as well as she speaks, you're going to love it! 

Wish me luck!
