My Copy of the Book
Year Published: 2016
Genre: Christian; Nonfiction
Your life is filled with pressure and pain and heartache and disappointment. So was His.
If you’ve ever tried to pick up the shattered pieces of your life and put them back together again without help, you know it’s an impossible task. When you lose your job, when divorce divides your family, when a loved one commits suicide, or when cancer claims a friend, it’s easy to lose perspective and abandon hope.
According to Jon Weece, Christianity does not require you to smile through your pain, much less praise God for tormenting you. God doesn’t enjoy your suffering. But he does understand it—and he knows exactly how to fix it.
That’s what Me Too is all about: A God who turned the ugliness of the cross into a spectacle of eternal beauty. An all-powerful Lord who will do the same with the pain of this world. An eternal Father who specializes in wiping away tears and putting you back together again. If you’ll allow him.

My Take on the Book:
There were chapters in this book that made me sit and think. Even though there are times where life is hard; nothing goes unnoticed. There will be times where you will be required to step out of your comfort zone and trust God which will lead to growth.
It's wonderful to read a Christian book again; and I read it at a time where I'm having to take on more things that sometimes feel overwhelming. This book will be part of my 'Monthly Reading Goal', as well as the read-a-thon that I'm taking part in: All The Short Ones Read-a-thon.
