    Highly Recommended

    In her book {w}hole, author and speaker Lisa Whittle has provided us with one of the most compelling and personal definitions of redemption to date. By showing that "holes" not only keep us from being "{w}hole", they also have the capacity to make us whole. The crux being a relationship with Jesus, so in addition, this book is also a path to salvation for the non-believer. The language and stories used are so refreshing because they are so real. In the end, she comes full circle to solidify the reality that all we have are our stories, that are real with Jesus at the center of them, and that we need to be telling them. Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Tyndale House Publishers book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255 : "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."

    turn your broken parts into a whole

    (W)hole by Lisa Whittle invites the reader to look within herself and find those holes that interfere with a whole relationship with God.

    These holes are the things that we do not like about ourselves, that keep us feeling self-conscious, ashamed, frustrated and worried over. These are some of the things we allow to label us, even though we do not like them. "Fat" could be a hole. "Uneducated" could be a hole. "Short tempered" could be a hole.

    Whittle shares a personal story involving her own childhood and adult experiences that left a deep hole within her and how she allowed God to fill that hole so that her spirit could return to the vibrance it once had.

    At the end of the book, Whittle includes questions to ponder and reflect upon. This book is not preachy and there is not actually a lot of quoted scripture here. Rather it is a more personal telling of how God fills the voids in our lives.

    Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from Tyndale in exchange for my review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion here is entirely my own.
