Faithful by Kim Cash Tate - Book Review


Trade Paper

Three life-long friends experience life-altering struggles. Will they find the strength to be faithful to the covenants they've made with God...and each other?

Cydney Sanders thought she knew God’s plan for her life. She’d marry, have kids, and then snap her body back into shape with Tae Bo. But she’s celebrating her fortieth birthday as the maid of honor at her little sister's wedding . . . and still single. Why would God give her this desire to marry, but no husband? And why is her life suddenly complicated by the best man—who’s the opposite of what she wants in a husband?

Cydney's best friend Dana has the perfect marriage. But when Dana discovers her husband’s affair, her world goes into a tailspin. And Phyllis is out of hope after six years of unanswered prayers for her husband to find faith. When she runs into an old friend who is the Christian man she longs for, she's faced with an overwhelming choice.

With life falling apart around them, can they trust God like never before?

My thoughts:

Let me start by saying that the minute I received this book, I was captivated by the cover, I just loved it and I couldn't wait to get into the pages and start reading.

I'm a very visual person and usually with books the covers tend to factor into my thoughts about the story overall. But I have had times where the cover didn't do much for me but I enjoyed the story nonetheless.

This one is a winner though, from cover to page after page of amazing writing by Kim Cash Tate, to the wonderful lessons and reminders about God's love.

One of the things I most struggle with, and which I've been extremely vocal about here on my blog, is the acceptance of things as they are, of learning to trust that God knows what is best for me and in what time I should have it. This book again reminds me to accept things as they are instead of fighting it and trying to change it to how I want them to be.

The author touches on extremely important things, such as honoring your vows and opening yourself to the Lord's love.

It's such a good book, it's a good chick lit but also a Christian fiction and the resounding message through it all is Faith. I loved it.
