Nevertheless, She Was Blessed: Inspiring Devotions and Prayers for Women (Hardcover)
Sweet book with pretty flowers on each page. The style of this book makes it easy to read, and the thoughts are nice, but not 100% accurate with the meanings in the bible.
Although this is a great feel-good book, if you are looking reality, this is not the place to go. Nevertheless, She was Blessed makes it sound like you are special just because you were born, and that anything you do is accepted by God, when the bible states clearly that you have to live for God, live righteously, include him in all your actions, have faith in Him, and follow the rules of God in every moment. In order to be forgiven, you have to ask through prayer, repent, change your ways, and completely and live for God in all ways with complete faith, or your future will hold unpleasant warnings to show you are not on the right track.
This is a sweet book that is recommended for someone who has deep knowledge of the bible, but not as a guide for a new-coming Christian. Great motivational read if you need a quick pick me up, but don't take her verse translations completely to heart unless you are already truly living a christian life. Not everyone is a child of God, and although we can become children of God, it takes more than just a light-hearted book--it takes a life long commitment to God and his laws of life.
I recommend for light-hearted words, not life advice. #NetGalley #Neverthelessshewasblessed— Andrea C.
