Now, I do not often, actually I have never, endorsed a book on my blog. I read a lot of books. I have probably read at least 100 this year. Most of the books I read are fiction, from authors like James Patterson (love the Cross series!), and are nothing more than for entertainment. I rarely read books that are religious in nature, I just have trouble getting into books like that. About 3 months ago I started hearing about a book. People talked about here and there and I started to get curious. Dad started reading it, and really liked it, and offered to let me read it after him. What book? you ask. The Shack by William P Young. I read it in a just a few days. It is an amazing book. I loved it. I mean I LOVED it. It starts off slow, so if you have picked it up and haven't gotten really into it yet, give it a few more pages. I bet you will be glad you did. Now, I recognize that not all of us will like this book. But for those that do like it, it can be life changing. It changed my view on God, and my relationship with him. Brandon and I had recently had a discussion about how God can never be understood. That He is bigger than our minds can grasp. This book tied in perfectly with this idea, and I look forward to hearing what Brandon thinks about it. We are planning on reading it together, I will happily read it again with him. I love it that much!
Have you read it? What did you think about it? I would love to hear others thought on it, but I do not neccesarily want to spoil the book for others, so email me to talk about the book more in depth (if you don;t have my email message me and I will get it to you). It is just such a mind altering story. If you haven't read it, try it out. If you can't get the book yourself, let me know and I will see what I can do. It is that good of a book.
We are a hard-working, fun-loving, God-fearing couple. We have two adorable dogs, a six year old Yorkie/Maltese named Charlie and our newest addition, a Chihuahua mix pup, named Lucy. They are always keeping us entertained! Brandon is an engineer at a networking company in Dallas. I work at a recruiting firm in Dallas where I work for my dad.
Brandon and I love to spend our free time traveling, especially on a cruise ship! Most of all, we try and have fun whenever we can!
