Book Review: Remember God

Book Review Lessons From the Sidelines

Annie Downs newest book continues to share the life lessons God is teaching her. Remember God is the most vulnerable book Annie has yet to share. She offers the reader a look into her travels and life,b but more than that, Annie shares the whispers she heard from God.

Annie honestly shares of her wrestlings, her heart wounds and her most challenging life season yet. Depression, fear, frustration, and redemption are all present in Remember God. Through it all Annie continues to draw the reader back to truth. When we look for God he will show up.

We’ve all been there haven’t we? We wonder if our most fervent prayers have not reached high enough or worse, they have and God is ignoring us. While every experience is different it is the reminders from those who have been in our shoes, those who have ached the same ache and now are on the other side that can offer hope we too will reach the other end of the wilderness. Remember God is that reminder.
