{W}hole by Lisa Whittle is about how our life experiences, whether good or bad, can leave holes in us. These holes effect how we see ourselves, others and God. Lisa Whittle shares her personal testimony (and holes) throughout this honest and revelatory book. She states, that our experiences and/or roles don't define us. But it's about allowing Jesus Christ to fill our holes, by making us "whole" and thereby re-writing our story. This book is jam packed full of incredible insights which made me take my sweet time reading it. I would read a page and then stop to reflect on it. I would find myself underlining passages and then thinking about it the rest of the day. This is one of those special books that can change your life. I really appreciate Lisa Whittle's transparency in revealing some very painful and personal experiences in her life. I was able to identify with a lot of what she wrote, especially the feelings accompanying those experiences. It actually stirred me and made me reflect upon my own holes. The holes that I would rather ignore, bury or run from. The holes that came from very pivotal or painful moments in my life, which in turn, changed the course of my life. As a result, this book wasn't easy for me to read. However, it was necessary as it was timely. I want to share some passages from this book that spoke to me: * Often, the things we find most demanding and difficult are the very places we most need to have healed. * God seeks our dependence upon Him to make us whole. * Wholeness rises from the ashes of our experiences when we cling to the God who makes it all possible. I believe this is a very important and helpful book and I highly recommend it to everyone. In conclusion, I received a complimentary copy of this book for review purposes from Tyndale House.

(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.

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.
