Reviews by Brittany Jean
On 8/9 Brittany Jean wrote: One of the things I’ve loved about reading Parables is that it is really enjoyable in small segments. I’m not usually one to read a book over a long stretch of time and take breaks to read other things, but this is definitely perfect if that’s you’re reading style. I’d compare it best to being ... Informative and illuminating
On 9/21 Brittany Jean wrote: For The Love was such a fun read! Especially when you know that a bunch of your girlfriends are all reading it at the same time. No matter your phase of life, Jen’s honesty and wit connect all of the dots for a picture of actionable ways to live out the love of Jesus, particularly as a woman in America ... Best served with an extra copy for a friend!
On 7/29 Brittany Jean wrote: After reading this book and discovering what a bold life Chuck Colson lived for God in this country and throughout the world, I am ashamed to say I didn’t really know anything about him. But I think that is exactly the intent of this timely and very passionately-written book. Strachan gives the perfect ... Timeless and poignant call to action!
On 6/10 Brittany Jean wrote: I have been a follower of the IF:Gathering revolution that Jennie founded — it has been gaining lots of attention this past year, so when I saw this book pop up in my suggested reads, I couldn’t get my hands on it fast enough! Jennie’s story about how her prayer of “anything” changed her and ... Free yourself up for glory!
On 5/18 Brittany Jean wrote: I. Loved. This. Book! Seriously, I needed to hear the convicting message of this book so badly. I am often aware how anger is one of the most prevalent emotions in my daily consciousness. Whether it’s something that seems big and important in its injustice or some small and trivial moment of feeling ... Convicting and freeing!
On 4/19 Brittany Jean wrote: I am very passionate about the effects of extreme poverty on mothers and children so when I had a chance to review this book I jumped at the chance. The book left me with a lot of mixed emotions. It is comprised of essays from artists, actors, policy makers, medical professionals, and pastors that were ... Reader beware
On 3/1 Brittany Jean wrote: God’s Story in 66 Verses by Stan Guthrie takes a careful and creative approach to breaking down the books of the Bible. The verse chosen for each book isn’t meant to be the most important or the best, but instead is a key verse that summarizes or lays the foundation for the book. I really enjoyed ... Great read for everyone
On 9/18 Brittany Jean wrote: “I believe in the me God made and in the me God can make.” Annie beautifully weaves together a collection of little stories from her life and the lives of others along with stories from the Bible in Let’s All Be Brave to encourage and embolden us readers to do the same: be brave. This book felt ... "You are called to be courageous"
On 8/5 Brittany Jean wrote: Ken Wystma challenges the reader before you even crack the spine of Pursuing Justice. The back of the book asks: If God designed us to experience true happiness, why do so many of us feel dissatisfied and purposeless? Throughout the book Ken uses his strong knowledge of theology combined with stories ... Beautiful and transformative
On 7/8 Brittany Jean wrote: First of all, do not let this title fool you! This is not a seedy or racy book! It’s a funny, inspiring, and will touch your heart! Pastor Todd Stevens tells an honest account of his journey of giving within his own life, the life of his family, and in his church. What I love most about this book is ... Genuine and inspiring! Love God, love people.
On 6/22 Brittany Jean wrote: Love Skip Jump, written by Shelene Bryan is a journey through Shelene’s many adventures that led her to finally step out of her comfortable Christian life and really listen to what God was asking of her. When she started saying yes to the little and the big things, she found God working through her ... Inspiring and delightful!
On 6/10 Brittany Jean wrote: I was excited to read this book just based initially on the fact that it was written by Scott C Todd with Compassion International and as I am now in my 2nd month of sponsoring a sweet little girl in Ghana through Compassion, I was excited to dive deeper into the mind of someone in such an important ... Review of a great book: Hope Rising by Scott C Todd
