I picked up two books I would consider targeted at a younger than me audience. That said, I enjoyed both thoroughly!
Me, myself and lies by Jennifer Rothchild, publishing on 1 May, is written for teenagers but the truths shared apply to all of us. From funny but relevant anecdotes from Jennifer’s and her friends’ lives to the entertaining take on how our minds work, Jennifer weaves humour through the book making her biblical references easier to remember. Practical, the book is full of ways to restock our thought-closet (what girl doesn’t love a shopping analogy!) with positive thoughts, biblical truth and to walk out as a child of God. 5 out of 5 for en-JOY-ment!
“What you think and say to yourself will impact the texture, colour and music or you life.”
“When you don’t prepare the closet of your mind by filling it with truth, it fills up with negative thoughts, feelings of insecurity, lies and confusing ideas.”
“We need to speak truth to our sounds so that it’s truth that gets stored away and recalled. And truth always feels good and is in style!”
“Meditating is a way of remembering. It is reinforcing what we know. Meditation is an intentional, steady stream of thoughts that run through our thought closet. It’s one way we keep our thoughts closets well stocked with God’s promises.”
“When we lift others up, we are doing what God created us to do.”
Light, pacy and enjoyable, Behind the Scenes by Jen Turano, an adventure romance, is a delight from beginning to end. It arrives on shelves on 4 April. With sound morals and gentle reference to Christianity, the leading lady is one with whom spending time was fun. Mystery, sass and fashion make a great combination! I give it a 4 out of 5 on the en-JOY-ment scale!
