    Buy one for youself and a dozen as gifts. Perfect gift for graduates, your girlfriends on mother's day, guy friends on father's day, etc.  If I were getting married I'd buy 100 to use as wedding favors for my guests.  Inspiring and relevant for people of all faiths.  This author is a masterful story teller!

    Get this book!!
    I've always known Shelene to be the "big idea" person.  So many of us have great ideas but never do anything about them.  Shelene is someone who gets a logical idea based on a need and actually "does" something about it!  What a wonderful opportunity to be inspired to go for what we have always thought about but never had the courage to do!  Trust me,  you will be blessed more than you'll ever know or understand when you just say YES!

    I don't even consider myself to be much of a reader, but this book captivated me. I laughed. I cried. My whole perspective changed. God used it to open my eyes and my heart and I am truly thankful. Shelene has a gift and I'm so thankful that she is sharing it through this book.

    I picked up Love, Skip, Jump at 10:30pm expecting to take in one chapter prior to retiring for the evening.  Four hours later, book completed, I crawled into bed.  I was moved by Shelene’s honesty, inspired by her passion and motivated by her call to action.  Let the adventure of ‘yes’ begin today by saying yes to reading this book.

    This book gives a wonderful perspective on how much each of us can do when we say yes to God. It has touching stories of charity 
    and giving and sacrifice, thoughtful insights in comparing and contrasting the ways we can approach a life of giving, and is always 
    marked by a graceful and witty humor.

    There are two types of people in the world; talkers and doers. Not only is Shelene an incredible doer, she shows the way for others. The very first chapter of Love, Skip, Jump says it all, "The Adventure of Yes." By saying yes she shares how you can change your life and, in turn, the lives of others whom you may never know. Giving without the expectation of receiving is the truest sense of Christian love. Love, Skip, Jump into the life God has for you. Thanks, Shelene for a great guide!

    This book is inspiring, relevant, and funny! Shelene is so transparent and real about her experiences. God has has transformed her life and the lives of so many others, through her.  It's wonderful to see how one person full of love can truly make a positive difference in this world. I'm motivated now to start living the Adventure of Yes too. The book is a true blessing.

    This book will mess you up real good! It should come with a sticker on the cover that warns: "WARNING! Reading this book will change your life for the better!" I read this in one day, and promptly made some inspired changes to my life. Shelene Bryan can tell a story like nobody's business, vulnerably and hysterically revealing her heart, and spurring the reader's. This book is not safe, but safe never changed anything! Get this. Read it. I dare you!

    I absolutely loved and I mean absolutely LOVED this novel! Read

    I absolutely loved and I mean absolutely LOVED this novel! Reading about Shelene's adventure of saying yes to God inspired me immensely since I have heard God asking me for a while now if I say yes to Him!

    What inspired me so much is that she shares how's she not perfect. She talks about her upsets, judgements, and sometimes even doubt. She doesn't sugar coat her story in making it seem like she's perfect. She's just a woman who had God change her life and is on a constant adventure of saying yes to Him!

    Shelene really proves her point in that when we do say yes to God and decide to jump that were not the only one affected by this decision. Countless people can be affected eternally by one decision to jump for Jesus!

    I am extremely thankful that I picked up this novel because it will definitely inspire you personally to step out for Jesus! Like Shelene shares that it won't be easy, but there is a joy and contentment in knowing we obeyed our Savior!

    I give Love, Skip, Jump by Shelene Bryan a 5 out of 5 stars!

    *(I received this novel from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for an honest review! All thoughts expressed are my own and I was not required to write a positive review!)*

    A true inspiration

    Shelene is such an amazing person and her stories are brilliantly told. I am forever grateful that God crossed our paths and quite literally put this book in my hands. The words and prayers have opened my eyes to a whole new way of seeing the world and the gifts I've been given. This book was life-changing for me, and I hope everyone gets the opportunity to read it and never be the same! It's time to start really living and sharing everything I have to offer with the world!

    I've been an avid reader for over 30 years and seldom do I recommend a book. This one is a MUST read! Easily one of the top 10 books I've read in my life. Do you want to make a difference in the world around you? You can touch lives from 5 miles to 5000 miles away. We are so privileged to live in America and most of us take it for granted. This amazing book puts things into perspective and shows how one man's junk can be another's treasure.
    Rather than being a how-to book, this is an incredible journey of how one person made a difference in the lives of many, simply because she was willing. The writing style is captivating. It puts you inside the author's head and exposes her feelings, thought processes, fears, concerns, and she dares to write on paper feelings that most of us would not dare utter. The sincerity and transparency is rare and much appreciated. The book grabs you, moves you (to tears at times), and motivates you to do something, anything. It's hard to put down. We read it as a family and my 11 and 13 year olds were eager to find out what happened next. Give it as a gift to everyone you care about.
    One word of caution: with great power comes great responsibility. This is a very powerful book. When you Love, Skip, Jump and purpose to make a difference, the life that's affected the most may very well be your own.
    Bravo Shelene! A masterpiece!
