Review&Giveaway: Etched Upon My Heart by: Jill Kelly


About the Book:
Every Christian parent today wrestles with the challenge of how to raise kids in a God-honoring, morally sound way.
In ETCHED . . . UPON MY HEART, Jill Kelly offers up the unforgettable episodes of her life-some sorrowful, others filled with joy-as a "living epistle" to her daughters.
For the many other Christian mothers who also long to pass on their hard-won knowledge of God's steadfast love and healing grace to their children, Kelly's down-to-earth reflections provide an inspiring example.

As she writes, "God will break our hearts, but He will hold the pieces. He will cradle us and redeem every tear we cry."
Although great personal pain-her young son Hunter's death,
her husband's infidelity-informs these pages, Kelly's story is ultimately one of forgiveness, reconciliation, and hope.
Through the moments in time that Jill Kelly recounts, readers will recognize the daily reality and eternal value of God's plan for their own lives.

My Review:
 I really enjoyed this one. Jill Kelly shares with us the trials and triumphs she has endured and overcome in her life. This book dedicated to her girls outline some of the mistakes she felt she has made with a coating of sugar flavored love she felt being their mom. Jill never claims that she has had it "right" all along instead she shows us deep into the heart of a fellow mom,sister, wife, mother, daughter and Christian. Deep into the very depths of her soul, showing us how we should all come to God with all of our faults so that He can enable us to the great mountain peaks He wants us to reach for without Him our lives are without purpose.

 God brought Jill through the trenches of indifference and heart ache over to the  other side so that she can show other women that we are NOT superwoman and that the cracks that we have were put there so that God could make us perfect.
