Try it Tuesday & Review {Etched upon my heart: Giveaway}

Hey all...it is another week of
"Try it Tuesday & Review."
 
{If you have noticed, I changed the end date on my other giveaway {Abel's Field} till Feb 5th so be sure to check it out. You may be the next winner!}
 
This week, I have another wonderful book called
Etched...Upon my Heart: What We Learn and Why We Never Forget by Jill Kelly.
This book was released on January 22, 2013.
 
 

 
 About:
 
"Jill courageously allows us into the rawest moments of her personal journey, and invites us to join the process by which love is defined, fear becomes faith, and suffering becomes sovereign. Undoubtedly, if "moments are measured by depth, not by length", then the moments that you will spend reading ETCHED UPON MY HEART will serve as some of your most valuable..."
 --- Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Co-Host ABC THE VIEW

"Jill Kelly writes with a raw honesty that is both rare and refreshing. ETCHED...UPON MY HEART will both break your heart where it needs to be broken and heal your heart at the same time."
 --- Mark Batterson, Pastor of National Community Church, author of The Circle Maker
"I am taken ... with the words in ETCHED...UPON MY HEART and the heart of the writer who wrote them, Jill Kelly. As a mother, Jill spoke to the place in me that desires to make a lasting imprint on my children's lives. As a woman, she touched the place in me that knows well of the struggle to love, lose, forgive, live faithfully, find significance. As a believer in Jesus, she stirred my deep gratitude for redemption and the God who makes all things well. There is a richness that comes from a life that has lived this, and Jill Kelly has poured her own onto the pages of ETCHED. I just read it, and I want to read it, again."
 --- Lisa Whittle, speaker, Compassion advocate, author of {w}hole.
 
 
About the author: 
 
Jill Kelly is the wife of former Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly. In September 1997, months after their infant son, Hunter, was diagnosed with a fatal disease called Krabbe Leukodustrophy, Jim and Jill founded the Hunter’s Hope Foundation. As chairman of the board of Hunter’s Hope, Jill helps children suffering from Leukodystrophy, and their families by raising awareness and research funds to fight this devastating disease. She and Jim live in Buffalo, NY, with their two daughters and three dogs. Hunter’s Hope Foundation can be found online at www.HuntersHope.org. Jill is also the author of Without A Word.

In my opinion:

This book was well written and spoke honest truth. Jill shared some personal life stories and I believe she was trying to help others come unto Christ to get through their own trials. Each chapter had a theme with various stories on how she gained a testimony on that topic. Also, each chapter had a summary of the key points "to remember and never forget" and the "truths to etch upon your heart." There were many scripture references to point out the importance of each subject. I believe daily scripture study is important so one may gain a closer relationship with God. I loved Kelly's honest reflections and it made me reflect on my own life experiences. This book was inspirational and encouraging. I definitely recommend this book to anyone.

One lucky reader will win a copy of this wonderful book.
