#struggles

We are connected like never before with social media and cell phones.  There is exponentially more information available at your finger tips than an encyclopedia that covers multiple bookshelves.  However, with all this information and the ability of instantaneous connection, we are more lonely and isolated than ever.

This book addresses these issues and provides the most obvious solution.  We are created to be in relationship with each other and with God.  We must cultivate those relationships in order to be truly content.  Our eyes must be fixed on Christ, not on a small screen.

This quote will be with me for a long time, "When you think about it, no one stumbles into righteousness.  People fall into sin every day.  But no one just falls into holiness.  It requires making deliberate, prayerful choices and walking an intentional path."

Zondervan provided me a free copy of this book in exchange for this review which I freely give.

Tough as They Come

SSG Travis Mills is more than just tough.  He not only served in the U.S. Army doing 3 tours in combat, but he also survived quadruple amputee injuries.  His story is inspiring.

As I read this book, I tough it would be about his recovery from his injuries.  The last third of the book is; however, the book is more about his time in service.  As a veteran myself, I am interested in what he did while he served.  I knew he recovered from his injuries; hence he wrote this book.  I am intrigued with his life story and his attitude as a combat veteran.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review. For more info on the author visit this website.
