A REVIEW OF THE BOOK Beautiful Uncertainty by Mandy Hale

Beautiful Uncertainty

By Mandy Hale

   This book is my introduction to inspirational author Mandy Hale and her works. As a single woman in my twenties, I am always eager to read encouragement and wisdom from other single women. I long to get a bigger picture of God's purpose and plan for my life. I think Mandy Hale did a beautiful job presenting the joy and zest for life a single woman of any age can experience. There was definitely a balanced and content look at life which I appreciated. The author wasn't touting singleness or marriage as the best thing in life. Rather, she focused on Christ and the contentment and joy found in Him. In short, if you have Jesus, you have everything you need! This is such an important message and I hope more girls and women will read this book and learn that for themselves. I am glad I read this book! It was such an easy read, by the way. Once I picked up the book, I couldn't put it down and finished it one Sunday afternoon! However, I would recommend going back and reading it more slowly in order to really ponder the truths and lessons within the pages.  Since this is my introduction to Mandy Hale's books and indeed her story, I found certain biographical information lacking which will encourage me to look into her other books, but this book is of course great on its own because of the important content.

As a side-note to friends reading this review: I think the author and I would have differing opinions doctrinally and there were a couple of moments were I felt Jesus could have been revered more, but it was still a great book.

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.
