So sorry for the wait, page turners!
I know I haven’t written a review in about 2 months. Life has been pretty nuts between moving, getting a full time job, moving again, and figuring out what on earth this whole figuring-out-your-life thing is supposed to look like once you graduate college.
(If anyone has figured it out – I’ll gladly accept any and all wisdom/general advice.)
Anywho, in the midst of all of the moves, the decisions, and generally feeling like a toddler that lost their parent in a grocery store, endlessly bumbling around trying to find them – a wonderful mentor of mine sent me Wendy Pope’s Wait and See: Finding Peace in God’s Pauses and Plans.
The timing was nothing short of perfect. I think I actually laughed when I opened the package. Then I began to read.
Pope is an honest, well-written writer who divulges the very real and hard moments of her life and the lives of others. As a reader, you get to walk with people who are in seasons of singleness, who have tried for years to have a child, who are fighting physically for their lives, and who are just as lost as you may be.
This book took me to some real places. It took me a while to read it. There were times I wanted to throw it across the room, but I would never inflict harm on a book because it’s just wrong (looking at you monsters that dog-ear pages). But it was always refreshingly honest and points you back to the truth of God’s Word.
I will forever be grateful to have read this book. To really learn to live in the pauses and uncertainties in our lives. I’d highly recommend this book to anyone in any sort of transitional period. It’s good stuff.
