    This book was not what I was expecting based on its title. I was looking forward to coming away with some life lessons and new values on how to grow in God alongside my children. Sadly, it did not deliver on this. "I love you to God and Back" however was a heart warming reminder of the everyday blessings in our lives that we are often too busy to notice. Visits with friends, simple outings and our dear families are just a few of God's gifts to us in our daily lives. A little book that will leave a smile on your face.

    It was hard for me to decide whether I Love You To God And Back

    It was hard for me to decide whether I Love You To God And Back by Amanda Lamb should be a Read It or Skip It recommendation. The book itself was fun, sweet and very feel-good. But in the end, would this be a book that readers would keep in their libraries or get rid of? Would it be remembered? Would it add anything lasting or memorable to the reader's life? I believe the later, so my recommendation is Skip It.

    If you love fiction, then you will love this book. It's a warm, positive story about a baby Christian mother and her younger daughter, sharing a prayer time. This book makes you smile, so if your goal is just to have a good time, read this book.

    However, I seek something a bit deeper. You will most likely forget this book. After reading it, although I enjoyed reading it, I didn't come away with any real value added to my life. The prayers are extremely light or simple. Some might use the word shallow but I prefer not to describe someone's genuine prayer as shallow because they are heartfelt. However, nearly every of the 100 prayers in the book goes like: "Dear God and Jesus, thank you for being able to go to school, thank you for swimming at the pool, thank you for playing with friends and thank you for my family. Ohhhh and thank you for Mommy!" Nearly every prayer follows this outline with a little change here or there. And the rest of the book is Mom telling stories about how adorable her girls are. And they are adorable! You will love them. Mom writes a beautiful book. Maybe I should give this a "Read It" recommendation.... but I can't. Simply because there wasn't enough to it. It was like watching a good soap opera.

    The best part of this book for me was the questions that the daughter made her mother consider. Who should we pray to? God? Jesus? God and Jesus? And should we end our prayers with Amen? Why? Things like this added a little depth to the book, but there weren't enough "Ahhh" and "Hmmm" moments for me. Just lots of warm fuzzy memories being shared. It was a good book. But not a great book. If you have time and enjoy fiction, read it. If you are busy, skip it.
