Don’t Give Up will speak directly to you wherever you may be facing challenges in your life. Stuck in a marriage that feels hopeless? Kyle’s book will equip you with a fresh breath of HOPE to not give up. Feeling discouraged from an ongoing inward struggle or physical diagnosis? You’ll be inspired with Biblical truth that gives you hope to keep going and look for ways God’s glory can be displayed. Are you full of despair because you see no possible way out of your present circumstances? Kyle reminds us of people who have gone before us in the hall of FAITH who did not give up. I love how Kyle uses the analogy of running a race in this life. How we keep running and focus on the finish line no matter what obstacles threaten to get in the way. I’m an avid runner and this speaks SO loud and clear to me! No matter where you are in your race of life, you will certainly be encouraged and equipped with hope and courage to keep going. So go get your copy of this book. Don’t Give Up!

Our lives are minefields of challenges, that take their toll on our courage, our conviction, and even our faith. But God whispers to the weary, Don’t give up. Drawing from inspiring biblical stories and first-person testimonies of perseverance, bestselling author and pastor Kyle Idleman encourages you to cast your concerns on God, trust in his love and timing, pray for patience and strength, and seek out support in the family of God. I have read the author’s other books, “The End Of Me” and “Not A Fan,” and “Don’t Give Up” was just as encouraging. Kyle teaches us to be free from everything that entangles and hinders us from moving forward and how to draw strength from God. Don’t Give Up is just what we all need to bring ourselves into the life that God meant for all of us. Kyle challenges me to step up in my life to keep believing and persevere and to run the race that God has set out for me. We have all faced a time or two when we wanted to throw the towel in, give up or walk away, Don’t Give Up will show us what we need to do to stand tall and push forward and experience what God has in store for us. Kyle has a unique way of writing that pulls the reader in from page one and relate to the reader. I throughly enjoyed the how the author used different examples from the Bible, for instance, Hebrews chapter 11 lists people who faced enormous challenges yet found the faith to keep believing and the courage to keep fighting. We should do the same every day, to not give up. God know’s our plans way before we do, we need to trust Him in everything. Don’t Give Up should be on everyone’s to be read list. I received the Don’t Give Up from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

We all have our ups and downs. Some people seem to have more downs than others. Some seasons of life seem to be more difficult to navigate than others. Kyle Idleman’s new book, “Don’t Give Up,” is just the encouragement needed for someone going through a rough patch. If your life is cruising along smoothly, this book is for you, too. Having a plan to push through the “little” challenges of daily life will prepare you for the tough times that everyone will face at some point in time. Based in the truth of God’s Word, Kyle’s latest book gives the encouragement needed to navigate the challenges we all face in life. As a Godly story-teller, he holds your interest with Biblical truth, scriptural examples and relevant, contemporary testimonies. More than just a pep talk, there are practical steps you can take to get you through the hard times. Kyle encourages you to take those steps, even when all you can do is to put one foot in front of the other. In the interest of full disclosure, I was invited to be a part of the launch team and received a free book to read and review before the release date. I have also purchased copies as gifts for friends who are currently facing difficulties.

Kyle Idleman's book "Don't Give Up" shows you how to tap into strength to keep going; strength that comes from a deeper place than pulling yourself up by the boot straps or Christian cliches that sound good but feel impossible. It highlights the next practical step and shows you how to tackle what has you stuck and ready to tap out. It's like he has taken you by the hand and walked with you to show you how to cast off the weights that keep you from winning.

This isn't a self help book but a God help book. Far to often when faced with adversity we seek out human counsel and human remedies. We look to human antidotes or try to clean/fix our lives by ourselves. We forget just how insignificant we really are. We eventually give up under the pressure of life and do just enough to get by. Kyle shows and reminds us where we need to turn and how to get our lives back. Life isn't and won't easy. We have a cloud of witnesses cheering us on reminding us to Never Give Up!

Don’t Give Up by Kyle Idleman deals with how we face life’s challenges. In usual Idleman fashion, you’ll find humor, scripture, and pertinent real-life stories. You’ll laugh out loud more than once, but you may also find yourself weeping too. There’s a lot packed into this book, and once you get started it’s hard to put down. Don’t Give Up is practical, entertaining, and in my opinion a five-star book.

Get the highlighter. Grab a box of tissues. Get comfy. This is a keeper, folks. We've all been there. We get knocked down by life. Loss of a loved one. Loss of a job. Discouraged by those valleys in life. And it's easy to wallow in grief, pain and bitterness. For those who have read any of Kyle's books, you'll recognize his style. Using his conversational wit and stories to help illustrate his message, bolstered with plenty of biblical knowledge and scripture throughout. The message may be simple (Don't give up!) but the topic is still a toughie for most of us. I cried reading the very first chapter. One of the stories Kyle wrote about hit home. Majorly close to home. But my dog gave me hugs and kisses and I kept on reading. And I wanted everyone I knew to read it to...except I won't part with my copy of the book, so I'll have to order them their own. I was blessed to have been able to be part of the pre-launch team, which allowed me access to a copy of the book a couple weeks ago. And this review comes from the heart. 2018 was one of my toughest years to date. We lost our baby son and I almost died in the process...and I have never been closer to God. It boggles the mind in a way. But then Kyle is able to make sense of it all. I absolutely recommend this book!

Don't Give Up! Those three little words are a message of encouragement we all need to hear numerous times during our lives. This book helps you realize there is always hope, and that Jesus is always there for you. Kyle has a way of making you feel like he is sitting across from you, listening and talking to you about your journey. That's because he is on a journey through life and has difficulties and issues just like everyone else. He is humble, honest, and unpretentious. My prayer is that by reading this book it will give hope to each and every one of you no matter what you have been through, what you are going through now, or what has yet to come. God is good. Don't Give Up!

Everyone runs into something that they do not know how to navigate or deal with; many factors may cause you to give up. In those situations, you often feel so very alone, which provides more incentive to quit. This book addresses all of that and more from a Biblical and relatable approach. The author's words will stick with you and guide you back to Truth. After having a very difficult last 18 months, Don't Give Up, has given me the continued support to move forward. I highly recommend this book to anyone who needs encouragement and reassurance.

I have been reading Pastor Kyle Idleman’s books for quite a while now. From his very first book, Not a Fan, to this most recent book, Don’t Give Up. I love his down to earth, witty writing style and Biblical insight into topics that are relevant to anyone. Don’t Give Up does not disappoint, and it has encouraged me to keep pressing on, no matter the circumstance. I would recommend this book to anyone not just because of my familiarity with the author’s writings, but also because everyone needs to hear this message. Don’t Give Up on your marriage, your kids, your family, your situation. There is hope.
