The Story of God's Love For You by Sally LLoyd-Jones {Book Review & Giveaway}

by @Fitzysmom

I have a secret confession to make. Any book with the name Sally Lloyd-Jones on it I want. I don’t even have to open it up to know that I want it. Her name on the cover is enough to make me put it in my cart. Why is that you ask? It’s because I can be assured that she is going to take the reader’s hand and draw them to Jesus.

For years now we have been enjoying her beautiful story books with all the littles in our lives. She teams up with a talented artist and the two of them create a masterpiece that brings the wonderful words and concepts of Scripture to life. If you’ve not enjoyed one of her books with your kids you are missing out.

In the back of my mind I have always thought it would be lovely to read an adult book written by her. She has such a gentle way with words that quietly brings the Gospel into your reading experience.  Well, my wish has somewhat come true. With the release of The Story Of God’s Love ForYou I can now unashamedly bask in the beautiful words that bring me into the presence of God.

The Story of God’sLove For You is the adult version of TheJesus Storybook Bible. The words are the same but it is packaged for an adult to read. There are forty-four short chapters that lead you through the beautiful love story of the Bible. This book is a must for all the worn out mommas out there!

It would be perfect for those moments when you just need to regroup. Think about where you go to escape the madness. Is it the bathroom, the laundry room, or even the car in the garage? Wherever it is keep a copy of this book there and when you think you are about to lose your marbles go there and read a chapter. You’ll be exposed to the flawed people that God chose to use to bring about His perfect plan. Every time I read a chapter it reminds me that none of us are perfect but God is and has a part designed just for you in the midst of the crazy day-to-day.

Maybe you're an empty-nester like me. I recently took it with us on a business trip and read it aloud to my husband as we were driving. I simply could not put it down! Not only did it make the trip go faster but we were blessed with the beautiful redeeming love story that God wrote just for us.

Now . . . how about a GIVEAWAY for a chance to get your hands on these lovely books for yourself?
