Book Review: "Jesus is for You" By Judah Smith


Book Description
What would it be like if someone were completely, 100 percent for you?
The loser. The rising star. The drug addict. The good Christian kid gone bad. The undeserving overwhelmed with gratitude. Whoever you are and wherever you’ve been—Jesus is for you.
Not when you clean up your act or when do the right thing or when put your life back together.

Jesus is for you—in the midst of now. Whether you woke up amazed by your blessings or shamed by the worst mistake of your life. Jesus is for you and with you, and He’s not going anywhere.
The heartfelt and honest stories in these pages reveal what it means to experience Jesus and discover the real life He promises. With insight from New York Times–bestselling author Judah Smith and backed by Scripture, this book will allow you breathe deeply the profound truth that Jesus is for you.

My Review:
This book is a fun little read to pick up and page through here and there.  I personally love reading the quotes from Author, Judah Smith.   He writes in a great way that makes you realize more of God's love!   One of my favorite quotes from the books is, "When we focus on His goodness, His power, and His grace, we are hardly even aware of what is happening, but we begin to change.   We begin to be more like Jesus.  Another one that got be really thinking was "God is not in a hurry to fix us.   Our behavior is not His first priority.   We are His first Priority.  Loving us is His main Concern."  So many quotes will have you thinking and praying and looking at scriptures.   This book is definitely one I want to read then reread again when I am having a bad day but then hand it off to someone to needs some love!  
Another neat feature of this book is the pictures on each page.   Their are beautiful nature pictures to adventure pictures.  
The book also has short testimony stories that are sure to increase faith for anyone who reads them.   I love this quick pick me up book that is full of love, mercy, grace, and truth!   
Thanks Booklook program for sending me this book for free in exchange for an honest review.   I was not paid for this review and all opinions are 100% mine.

This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
