Indivisible, Book Review

Indivisible Novelization by Travis Thrasher
One Marriage. One Family. Under God


Inspired by true events, Indivisible is a story of love, service, and finding each other all over again.
Darren and Heather Turner share a passion for serving God, family, and country. When Darren is deployed to Iraq as an army chaplain, Heather vows to serve military families back home as she cares for the couple’s three young children.
Darren knows he’s overseas to support the troops in their suffering as their chaplain. What he doesn’t know is how he will get through his own dark moments. And as communication from Darren dwindles, Heather wonders what is happening in her husband’s heart. Meanwhile, she’s growing weary in the day-to-day life of a military base—each child’s milestone Darren will never see, each month waiting for orders, each late-night knock on the door.
When Darren returns, he is no longer the husband Heather once knew. She is no longer the woman Darren wed. And so it’s at home that the Turners face their biggest battle: to save their marriage.
Based on the screen play by David Evans, Indivisible is a tribute to the beauty of serving our country, the courage of choosing love in the darkness, and the power of a God who never gives up hope.

My Thoughts: When I first heard about Indivisible, it was in movie format. When I saw that the publisher had it offered for review (per usual this doesn't effect my opinion of the book) I was excited to see what it was all about. Immediately I got into the book because it's based on a true story, and it really feels like a look into this family's life. A really eye opening book about those in the military. 

Racing to the Finish, Book Review

Racing to the Finish by Dale Earnhardt Jr with Ryan McGee

It was a seemingly minor crash at Michigan International Speedway in June 2016 that ended the day early for Dale Earnhardt Jr. What he didn’t know was that it would also end his driving for the year. He’d dealt with concussions before, but concussions are like snowflakes, no two are the same. And recovery can be brutal, and lengthy.
When NASCAR star Dale Earnhardt Jr. retired from professional stock car racing in 2017, he walked away from his career as a healthy man. But for years, he had worried that the worsening effects of multiple racing-related concussions would end not only his time on the track but his ability to live a full and happy life.
Torn between a race-at-all-costs culture and the fear that something was terribly wrong, Earnhardt tried to pretend that everything was fine, but the private notes about his escalating symptoms that he kept on his phone reveal a vicious cycle: suffering injuries on Sunday, struggling through the week, then recovering in time to race again the following weekend. For the first time, he shares these notes and fully reveals the physical and emotional struggles he faced as he fought to close out his career on his own terms.
In this candid reflection, Earnhardt opens up about his frustration with the slow recovery, his admiration for the woman who stood by him through it all, and his determination to share his own experience so that others don’t have to suffer in silence. Steering his way to the final checkered flag of his storied career proved to be the most challenging race and most rewarding finish of his life. 
My Thoughts: I have to start by saying that this book was sent so I could review it, but of course all that doesn't change my opinion of the book, but lets get into the book review. Even if you aren't big into racing you've probably heard of Dale Earnhardt Jr, which is exactly what I had. I was excited to read this because Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s only authorized book revealing the inside track on his final year of racing and retirement from the driver’s seat. This book is an eye opening look at not only his career but how Earnhardt has came back from behind and made it up. Very inspirational, and not just a book for race fans. 

Simple Discipleship, Book Review

Simple Discipleship by Dana Allin 

A Clear and Personalized Path for Discipleship
Discipleship can feel like a meandering journey―we don’t know what we want, and none of the programs offered seem to get us anywhere.

We need something to orient ourselves, and something to direct our steps toward a clear destination. Simple Discipleship, with its companion assessment tool, offers a plan for discipleship that is tailored to your real life and your personality, and clearly pointed in the way of Jesus.

Most discipleship resources are designed as mass productions―efficient for touching many, but often failing to see individuals grow in Christ. This is the best of both worlds―an assessment tool for your entire church, combined with an achievable, personalized discipling strategy.


My Thoughts: I have to start by saying that while I did receive this book from the publisher to review, but that doesn't effect the review in any way. Now that we're done with that, let's talk about the book! Often times I find these sort of spiritual books overwhelming so I was very happy to see Simple Discipleship take a little different approach, and really focus in on simple steps. I loved the clear goals that it laid out and the assessment tool took it home, and made it more personalized. A great eye opener and a new perspective on becoming a better disciple.
