Welcome to my 10 Day Book Tour. I love to read, and I am often given books to read for review. Over the last year, I determined that I didn’t want to turn my blog into a book review site. However, I can’t help that I LOVE books. I truly do. They add so much value to my life, because I learn from them and glean new perspectives from the authors who put their hearts to the page. So, I’ve decided that each quarter, I’m going to do a 10 Day Book Tour. What have I been reading, what do I honestly think about the book, and to whom I would recommend it. Each day, for ten days, you will get a peak into my bookshelf.
You may see this book and think the title sounds familiar, that’s because She Reads Truth existed long before these pages were printed. It began as a group of women reading The Word together, posting about their search for truth with the hashtag #SheReadsTruth. Eventually through their website, a diverse, global community of women were discovering the Truth in the pages of their Bibles together. This community still exists and there is even a She Reads Truth app.
I’ve followed She Reads Truth for quite sometime, so I was eager to get my hands on the book. What happens in the pages of the book is the unfolding story of two women who were seeking truth, FULL truth. It is a combination of two memoirs, two separate stores that led the women to the same Truth… and that our stories as different as they are can lead us to the same Truth.
Unlike a traditional memoir, which is a retelling of a single person’s story, and we are simply there to watch… Raechel Myers and Amanda Bible Williams reach out to their readers and speak to them directly.
We are invited into their story, welcome to bring our own story. We are finding community in the pages, together. Women who long for healing, forgiveness, and hope in the dark places. Women who may not share the same trials, but can find Hope in the same God.
If you are not into memoirs, you may think this book isn’t your cup of tea. But I would challenge you to read it anyway, it’s also filled with scripture, challenging questions and thoughts, encouragement, and familiarity as we understand struggle no matter how it is packaged. The memoir portions are long and drawn out and always point back to the same universal truths.
I would recommend this book to just about any woman, and it would make a great gift too.
