Review:Lead Me Home by:Stacy Hawkins Adams

Lead Me Home
About the Book:
Shiloh Griffin has no identity outside of her roles as pastor's wife and mom. Some days that is enough. But not always. Particularly when she is partnered with the always confident, always gracious Jade Smith on a church ministry project. Rather than shying away from God in her nervousness, Shiloh clings to Him, seeking every day to redeem herself. When an opportunity arises for her to teach music at a local high school, she thinks maybe it's just the thing to give her more significance. Then Shiloh begins mentoring Monica, a fifteen-year-old student. When Monica learns she is pregnant, Shiloh must confront her own darkest secret in the desperate decision facing the teen. If she turns away, this teen's life---and her soul---could be in jeopardy. If she decides to stand up and help, she knows she's the one who risks losing everything.

My Review:
 Shiloh Griffin for all wants and purposes has stood up and taken on her role as the quintessential pastor's wife and a very connected mother. But she struggles to find herself or even time for herself in the midst of it all.

 She has a secret that she is keeping hidden from her family. She feels like God will never forgive her for this. She also hasn't forgiven herself and fears noone else will either. She goes about her life with a painted on smile that is getting harder and harder to keep up. Pretty soon she is put in different situations where she will have to face this head on.

 I think we have all been there. We think that if we add one more sin to the already mounting ones God is going to say that's it, I'm done. But the truth is He will NEVER turn His back on us, no matter how many sins are in that pile.

 Soon Shiloh will have her faith shaken but prayerfully will come out smelling like a rose.
