“Addresses deep questions of the heart”
I picked up If Only last Saturday, thinking to read a few pages and before I knew it, I had read half the book! I ended up finishing it the very next day. I think we all have "if onlys" in our lives - whether we feel we've been denied something big - a spouse, a child, healing, or financial security - or whether it's a combination of small disappointments in life. This book offers hope and presents a warm and biblical call to surrender our longings to Jesus and to find our joy and satisfaction in him. He truly is enough - even in the face of pain and unfulfilled desires. Jennie writes from her own personal experience of dealing with singleness, but I really think this book will speak to every Christian, whatever "if only" you may be carrying. I found Jennie's writing style engaging, easy to read, refreshingly honest and strongly rooted in biblical truth. Also, the true stories of people dealing with various "if onlys" added so much to the book. Jennie addresses the big questions people often ask when experiencing lack and longing: Is God good? Is He enough? Is following Him worth it? I can't recommend this book highly enough. It is a breath of fresh air in our often cynical world and really pointed my heart to Jesus.
