We’ve all lost something. No matter what it is—a loved one, a treasured relationship, the life we thought we would have—our grief can overshadow us with its heaviness and ache. How do we get through each day? Where is God in these hardest of times? No loss is too small or too big for our God. In the midst of every trial, He is waiting to give you comfort and peace. In this beautiful book, bestselling author Jill Kelly offers a vision of healing and hope for whatever circumstance you’re facing. Her own stories of deep loss and unexpected joy will help you see how God shows up, even when grief seems insurmountable. God’s promise in the face of loss proves true: You are not alone. The Creator sees you and your heartache—and He will meet you there.
My thoughts:

Peace in the Face of Loss is a very touching and heart warming read. I really enjoyed reading this book and felt I took away a lot from this book. Loss can be anything from a breakup of a relationship, letting people go, and death. I felt this book is a prefect read for anyone who has or is suffering from heartbreak. This book as a nice brown, leather cover that is well crafted. I found the size is prefect to fit in my bag. That was I can read about God’s word in the face of loss and heartache. This book would be a great gift for anyone who is going through a hard time due to such loss. **Tyndale House Publishers  provided me  with a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.**

Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon

61dmVmzknBL._SX333_BO1,204,203,200_I have heard a lot of talk about Everything Everything by Nicole Yoon. Since they plan on making this into a motion picture, I knew I had to read it. This is a young adult book that is really a great read. Madeline (Maddy) is a seventeen year old girl that lives with her mother. She spends her days hanging out with her friend Carla,  who is also her nurse. She can’t leave her home because she’s been diagnosed to have a rare disease that leaves her basically allergic to the world. The disease is called SCID. Because Madeline can never leave the house, she reads a lot, watches movies, or plays games with her mother. This was her normal life and she was happy with it. That is until one day she sees a moving truck at the house next door. She sees a boy who she later learns is named Olly. Him and his sister Kara bring a cake to Madeline’s mother in hopes to meet her. They have seen her in the house looking out the windows. Even though they cannot hang out they figure out a way to talk through emails. When Madeline tells Olly about her disease and he seems to take the news well, even accepting it. As their friendship grows they manage to seek visits with the help of her nurse, Carla. The story takes many turns with a lot of ups and downs. There is a strong sense of hope, love, and friendship. I feel the author done an amazing job creating the plot line and characters for this book making them unforgettable. I highly recommend this book.

The instant #1 New York Times bestseller–soon to be a major motion picture! In theaters May 19, it stars Amandla Stenberg as Maddy and Nick Robinson as Olly.

SYNOPSIS: My disease is as rare as it is famous. Basically, I’m allergic to the world. I don’t leave my house, have not left my house in seventeen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla. But then one day, a moving truck arrives next door. I look out my window, and I see him. He’s tall, lean and wearing all black—black T-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers, and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly. Maybe we can’t predict the future, but we can predict some things. For example, I am certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It’s almost certainly going to be a disaster. Everything, Everything will make you laugh, cry, and feel everything in between. It’s an innovative,  inspiring, and heartbreakingly romantic debut novel that unfolds via vignettes, diary entries, illustrations, and more.
