I’ve had this book for awhile – almost a year. (I’m SO SORRY D.M.!) I picked it up and read the first couple of pages probably a 100 times. I couldn’t get past page 18…
Earlier this year, we moved to my husband’s hometown (and in with his parents) after being unable to move our new trailer after taking a lot of time to get all the paperwork so it would be sure to be approved the first time and decided to build a small home ourselves. On top of this I was studying for Master of Science comprehensive exams (for a second time – The first was for a Ph.D. which I ultimately walked away from last year.) and facing graduation and the loss of my job of four years working in a marine microbiology lab.
After I received my last paycheck from the lab and I had finally graduated from Grad. School and was living in this new area, I was kind of down about being unemployed and unable to find work… one day I picked up 30 Days and read it over the course of a couple of days, stopping here and there on sections that really made sense for me. Even though, I haven’t gone through the loss D.M. has experienced – the loss of a spouse and of a parent. D.M is such a powerful writer. Her work spoke to me at several times, despite the book being written for a different purpose and outlook than I was experiencing. I was struggling to find happiness in my current situation. Several sections of the book – Isaiah and Daniel, Peace, Be Still, Putting It All into Perspective, and several others found a place in my heart that gave me hope and encouragement that I needed at the time and still take to heart now. You may think that this book doesn’t apply to you because you aren’t experiencing the loss of a loved one, but take the time to read this book and let it’s powerful messages speak to you where you are!Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download
I also have her book Mississippi Nights which I have yet to read (because it’s packed up along with all my other belongings until we can move into our new house.) I doubt it will disappoint, because she is such a skilled writer (and because it’s based in Mississippi it can’t be bad!)!
I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
