My Thoughts:

         The prevailing message in this book is the all-encompassing Love of Christ. There are no special requirements or duties necessary. He loves us just as we are, for who we are.
         Each chapter ends with a section of "What do you think" questions. There are "What God says about you" verses, and a sprinkling of biblical quotes throughout the book. The authors challenged me to dig deeper into scripture. Scripture memorization is emphasized, for good reason.
          I was previously introduced to one of the authors, Robin Jones Gunn, through her `Sisterchick` series. The contributing author, Alyssa Joy Bethke, is new to me. I felt they worked well together. The authors revealed personal insights which challenges the reader to dig deeper into their own relationship with God.
        This book is endorsed by authors familiar to myself: Melody Carlson and Melanie Shankle.  I chose this book as a refreshing reminder of who I am in Christ.
        Although this book targets the younger female audience, I feel women of any age could benefit from the gems found within. I give this book 5* out of 5*.
