This is a place of ME. This is a place where I will let the walls down and be honest. Joys and stories or tears and heartbreaks, they will all be here. Devotionals to poems, my heart is open to you. I will love well. I will love you and honor you by allowing you into my brokenness and the truth that God has reviled to me. This is a place of Me.

My Life Unscripted by Tricia Goyer (book review)

Before I say anything else I'm gonna say . . . YOU HAVE TO GET THIS BOOK!!!!!!

Ok! With that out of the way, I think I should probably tell ya a little about it book.

My Life Unscripted book is THE BEST devotional style book I have ever read. Instead of a strict Bible study where you read then write a response to the teaching, it is set up in random sections that include several different ways to think about the subject. You can read literal scripts that are based on the author's life as well as her thoughts on each subject. You can write what you think as you go. There are also Bible verses and quotes from teens telling about their experiences. (And yours truly is quoted several times. :o))

This book is not directed to the "perfect" girl in any way. It is for real people who struggle with real life. In this book Tricia is completely honest with the mistakes she made as she was trying to find who she was. I love the way she is so vulnerable with her life, writing to help younger girls learn from her mistakes rather than learning the hard way. Tricia writes in a way that anyone can understand.

What sets My Life Unscripted apart from most books is that it doesn't put guilt on anyone for mistakes. Rather, it shows how to forgive yourself and accept God's forgiveness, as well as how to forgive others and try to make it right.

I'm realllllly not sure what else to say about it, but it is seriously the most awesome book ever and you should all buy and read it!!!!!
