Incredibly powerful book! Such a moving testimony. It truly shows the redemptive power of God to take us through tests and trials and His ability to bring us through on the other side with a remarkable testimony! I love how relatable the author is and how he weaves in his story with some of the most well known stories throughout the Bible. This book is truly one of the most inspiring I have read in a while! If you're questioning your worth or purpose, or if you've bought the lie that you don't matter or will never amount to anything, this book is for you! If you only read one book this year, this needs to be that book!
