When God Makes Lemonade created by Don Jacobson is the latest book I’ve received from Thomas Nelson for reviewing.
This is a really sweet book. It’s a collection of true short stories, most of which are just a few pages, from a wide variety of writers.
The one thing that all of the stories have in common is that in each one, God turned something bad into something that worked into good in the big picture.
The stories really vary as to the circumstances… but a lot of them are really major life events like injuries and accidents. But in each one, there is a silver lining that puts the traumatic event into perspective.
It’s an encouraging book, and I’m glad to see mention at the end that they are working to make this the first of a series.
The only negative I can say about this book is that after a bit, knowing the theme… you start to get a sense of doom in the start of each story. Because you know, something is going to happen. But every time, a rainbow follows.
