Made Well is Jenny Simmons second book. I read The Road To Becoming and haven’t stopped handing it out to people since, so when the launch team invite came out I leaped at the chance to help promote Jenny!.
“Healing doesn’t always happen in the way we think it will.” This is the theme of Made Well, and it is presented in multiple layers and Jenny shares more of her personal journey with God. If you read The Road to Becoming, you may remember the story of how Addison Road came to disband. Made Well picks up in the life that is being lived after Addison Road.
“Made Well is my story but I wrote it for every person who needs to be reminded that healing happens all the time, even if a cure doesn’t. I passionately believe in the message of this book. I pray it is a small reminder of your journey that we are loved by a God who longs to see us made well. We were created for wholeness. “
I personally find encouragement in people’s life stories. When I hear how God moved in someone’s life, it helps me to identify ways he is moving on my own. If you are like me, then you will find this book to be encouraging and possibly challenging. For example, Jenny tells one story of explaining how she strives to live her life with very little stress. This process of surrender is one I’m still working on. 🙂
Throughout the book aspects of what living Made Well with God can look like are presented in life examples but also with stories in scripture. Here are a few of my favorite quotes. If you feel your heart beat a little faster because of any of these, grab a copy and carve out some time to read STAT!
“Sometimes getting well looks like doing the thing we never thought we’d do and going places we never thought we’d go.”
“Over time unhealed places can turn us into the worst possible versions of ourselves.”
“Healing happens when we entrust ourselves to God’s care and become aware of the miraculous ways He is at work in our midst, binding the wounds.”
“There is wholeness to be found on the roads we never prayed for.”
Today is the last day to pre-order Made Well. Pre-orders include bonus gifts!
In exchange for an honest review, I was given a free copy of Made Well. The opinions expressed are my own.
