The Lord is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid?

God Makes Lemonade Book Review

True Stories That Sweeten & Inspire

SUMMARY:  Do you know someone who needs some encouragement.?  Perhaps that someone is you.  In God Makes Lemonade you'll read stories from everyday folks - people like you and me who discover unexpected sweetness in the midst of sour circumstances.
     Some of these real-life stories are laugh-out-loud funny, others are sobering, and more than a few will have you reaching for a tissue.  But these true stories all have one thing in common: hope.
     There's no question that life gives us "lemon," like issues with health, employment, and relationships - truly sour circumstances we wouldn't wish on anyone.  But when those lemons become lemonade, it's as refreshing as an ice-cold drink on a hot summer day.

REVIEW:  This book is made up of a bunch of short stories and is very similar to the popular Chicken Soup series.  Like the summary mentions, all of these stories have one thing in common:  hope.  You see the struggles families and individuals go through with the death of a family member, a serious injury or illness, the birth or death of a child, etc.  You also see how God comes through the sour spots in life, when you feel like you can't be squeezed any more and makes something completely sweet and refreshing.  This book is good to read all at one time or in short snippets and is very enjoyable.
