Book Review Of When God Makes Lemonade: True Stories That Amaze & Encourage By: Don Jacobson

Synopsis:


Do you know someone who needs some encouragement? 

Perhaps that someone is you.

In God Makes Lemonade, author Don Jacobson has collected real-life stories from around the world that show everyday folks discovering unexpected sweetness in the midst of sour circumstances. Some are funny, others are sobering, and more than a few will bring tears of amazement. But these true stories all have one thing in common: hope.

There's no question that life gives us "lemons," like issues with health, employment, and relationships. But when those lemons become lemonade, it's as refreshing as a cold drink on a hot summer day.

It's true that in life "stuff" happens, but as you'll see in these stories, Lemonade Happens too!

My Take On This Book:
 
I am disabled and have some serious back issues that I will now have to live with the rest of my life, there are no more surgeries that the Doctors can do, my bones break for no reason, and I live in horrific pain every day. I do get in those slumps and start the ‘oh poor me’ and I thank God I chose this book to read and review. When God Makes Lemonade is such a refreshing, up-lifting and inspirational read, once you start reading it you will not want to put it down. I loved the stories from each individual. They will lift you up and give you the inspiration and faith to keep on keeping on. Never give up, keep that faith.



Don shares his traumatic life event, which led him to write, and thank goodness, he wrote this book. There are stories that will tug at your heartstrings; I found that there some stories in this book that make my problems with my disability look minor. It is true that life can throw us some serious lemons, but as you will read the stories, lemonade can be made from them.  

Disclaimer: I was given this book free by Thomas Nelson Publishing via the blogger book review program Booksneeze for an honest un-biased review, I did not receive and compensation for my review. I would like to thank them for giving me the opportunity to read and review this book.
