Welcome to my stop on this blog tour!

Even This invites readers to make room for daily personal experiences with God. From the very first page readers will walk down a spiritual path meant to remind each of us that God will meet us in the unexpected, bringing His goodness, giving us cause to trust, reminding us of His capacity. Filled with deeply personal stories about holding onto belief, daring to trust, and longing for understanding, Even This chronicles one woman’s quest to find God in the everyday moments-with one of the most powerful experiences taking place as she searches for sea shells while walking on the beach-and provides many opportunities for individual introspection.
“Yes, God is good and He can be trusted,” Freeman concludes, “and it is the daily discovery of these truths that has the potential to become the greatest journey of a life and lead us closer to Him.”

Ultimately, the author hopes Even This will encourage and motivate readers to:
  • Stop letting fear dictate the depth of your belief through simple daily reflections that will restore your confidence in God.
  • Let go of your need to control by discovering what is holding you back from being completely vulnerable in your relationship with God.
  • Diminish the power of doubt by coming to understand why the place of deepest asking is where the believing begins.
  • Learn how to trust that God may have something entirely different in mind than you could ever anticipate–something better.


First off, look at the beauty of this cover.  It's just magical to me.  Second, this is a religious book written by and LDS Author.  Having said this, I think this book would be good for anyone who is trying to find a way to trust God.

When I was asked to review this I was excited.  I have to admit when I got the book in the mail, I was a little sad because I thought it was going to be a self-help book.  I don't like self-help books because they always feel like they are written for me and what I am doing wrong ;).

I am happy to say that this book did not feel like a self-help book at all.  It was written by a wife and mother who has faced her own struggles in life and questions "Why" and "Where is God".  We journey with this mother and the way she finds how to trust God, and his timing.

So many things in this book I feel were written just for me, but in a good way.  I think that no matter what religion you are it is important to find a relationship with God.  Whatever that may look like to you as an individual.  Sharing the same religion as the author though it did add a little more insight to things I can do to increase my faith and trust in God.

This book is beautifully written, and never made me feel as though I was doing something wrong.  Quite the opposite.  It helped me to see that another person has gone through hard times in her life and has also questioned "why" things are happening.  It helped me understand that God answers prayers on his own time, and not ours.  It was just beautiful.
