My rating: 4 stars My review: I read this book twice before sitting down to write a review. I rarely do that. In fact, I must confess that sometimes with book reviews I try to speed read through just so I can meet the review requirement and move on to another book. nike air max 1 It’s not right but I maintain that my opinions of some books wouldn’t be that much different even if I chose to simmer over them rather than speed through. That usually happens when I’m not overly fond of a book. nike air tn That’s not the case here. Fjallraven Kanken Backpacks Sale UK I wasn’t quite sure what to expect with this book. I don’t consider myself a lonely person per se. But in the current season of my life I do find myself alone more and often would consider some moments lonely. My default in those moments is to get online and surf, watch a stupid movie, or text garble to someone. This book challenged me to rethink my alone moments but even more so, to embrace my lonely ones as a gift to drive me to Christ and His word. Full of scripture and theological insight, this is a great book for women, though I suspect men will find nuggets as well. Even though it’s written from a single woman’s perspective, the application is not at all limited to singles and, in fact, can be even more applicable to to marrieds as well. Highly recommended! I received an ebook copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
