Hannah Arduini and her mother, Julie Arduini, have created and co-authored another beautiful story, it too will resonate with a female of any age.
You’re Amazing focuses on Jazmin, a teenage ballet dancer, and Lena, a young mother of two boys and a mentor at Linked. Both are overwhelmed and questioning whether their roles are right for them.
The authors have done an amazing job of capturing Jazmin and Lena’s feelings in a way that young girls and women can understand and identify with.
I love how they take the feelings of inadequacies and hurt and not only show Biblical discernment to help them, but also use their friendship and friends to help, too.
Jazmin and Lena had different childhoods, however, their feelings of failures and shortfalls come from the same deceiver. Throughout the book, the authors point us back to the only One who tells us the truth. In fact, God’s truth permeates this book, but one really caught my attention. A conversation between two of the characters reminds us how deeply God loves us, something that is too easy to forget in our day-to-day life.
This storyline is constructive, encouraging and re-affirming, written to help us readjust and release our harmful thoughts and turn them over to God.
The Arduini’s have written a third book in the series, too. I can’t wait to read it.
(I purchased You’re Amazing.)
YOU’RE AMAZING: Beautiful things happen when a group of girls and their mentors discover they’re worthy.
Jazmin’s a natural at dance until a series of changes make her wonder if she should even keep up with her favorite hobby.
Lena’s a mom with young children overwhelmed with her schedule when a woman remarks that what Lena does isn’t even important.
Both Jazmin and Lena belong to Linked, a mentoring ministry where all ages encourage each other and build friendships.
Can these two surrender the lies they are believing and realize they are amazing?
