Hope Unfolding book review

Books are one of my favorite things to review - actually, the only thing that I review, but when I find a good book, I want to go out and buy all the copies and give them away. I want to pool all of the words and chapters and letters together and soak in them like a pool.

Hope Unfolding, by Becky Thompson is one of those. This book, you guys. It is, AH-MAZING. I cannot say enough about how good it is. And, if you're not a big reader, just get it and read the last chapter. Friends, this book made me cry - happy tears and big, ugly alligator tears, it made me laugh and it moved my heart.

An absolute favorite on my bookshelf, I seriously recommend this book to ALL mamas. I can see mamas of older kids enjoying and appreciating the book too, however, it is written by a preschool mom and it so resonated with me because of our season of life.

Land of the Free, Because of the Brave. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ✨πŸŽ‡πŸŽ†πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ This weekend we recognize and remember Our Fallen. The incredibly amazing men and women that have stood up for us in times of peril, that have stood up for the freedoms of others, those that have stood when our country was at its lowest. You are remembered, you are honored, you are appreciated. And to the families that had to say goodbye to their heroes too soon, your sacrifice does not go unnoticed. Because of families like yours, mine can sit on the front porch and I can read my Christ-centered book without fear of punishment. Because of your loved one women in other countries have the opportunity to stand for themselves, children have remained with their parents, men have new freedoms. What you and your person gave up has changed the world and we are grateful. Although this weekend is grim for many, we rejoice in our freedoms because of what you have given. Thank you for your service and for your sacrifice. You are not forgotten. ❤ #service #freedom #thankyou #frontporchlife #grateful #memorialday #thankavetran #rememberthefallen #landofthefree #becauseofthebrave #homeofthebrave #ingodwetrust #america #neverforget #rememberourheroes #remember #wearefree #merca #USA #military #thankourtroops

Hope Unfolding is packed with truth, grace and wisdom. The love of Jesus oozes off the pages for mamas and the grace that he so freely offers is so tangible through Becky's writing.

There are so many trendy authors right now that I am so thoroughly disappointed with, but Becky Thompson is NOT one of them, I was a little skeptical as I began the book simply because if we are not cautious, it is easy to fall into the romanticism of wishy-washy words. I can say confidently that Hope Unfolding is NOT wishy-washy. The Truth in it is clear, obvious and Scripture supported.

Writing with multiple personal parallel stories and Scripture references, Becky packs the pages with the ultimate truths and speaks from a vulnerable, blessed place to mamas.

I mentioned that I cried throughout reading this book, all the way through I did not cry half as ugly as I did at the last chapter. She writes to your hurting mama heart and she gives you a visual of bringing Jesus into your biggest (or most recent) mama failure. After having a rough day yesterday, to read the grace and hope that she shared - to be reminded of the truth of the sacrifice and free gift that Jesus gives us is so moving.

I can't say any more without just reading the book to you. Go buy it. Seriously, if I could I would give you all one. It honestly is THAT good.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
