I Loved It? I Loved It Not?
That, up there, is my worn and tattered copy of Kayla Aimee’s book, In Bloom. I think it’s pretty safe to say that I LOVED this book, like, I loved, loved, LOVED it!
Now, here is someone with a sarcastic wit, equally matched with mine, and a genuine knack for story telling that kept me completely mesmerized with every page I turned!
Kayla has a gift. This is more than clear.
Inspiration to Rise Above
My son and daughter are in middle and elementary school, respectively. Both have been bullied. Both know heartache.
So, as Kayla recanted her own experiences with bullying, I found every one of my emotional heartstrings going out to her and all she’d been through. I also found tremendous hope and reassurance that my own children could climb out from under the weight of their own struggles and help others through their own stories someday.
Yes, Kayla’s journey of rising above and learning to abide in confidence has the power to encourage anyone along their path.
Laugh a Little, Grow a Lot
Through her own real-life stories, Kayla has this uncanny ability of getting the reader to look at their own lives with a bit of humor and a whole lot of light, freedom, and hope. Her genuine vulnerability, mixed with a hearty dose of amusement, brings power to Kayla’s life story and lessons learned.
Page after page, Kayla shows the reader that, no matter our current level of self-doubt, we can find our own purpose and meaning that God designed specifically for our own lives.
She relates, she inspires, she soars,
and she challenges us to do the same.
Is It Worth the Read?
If you’ve ever dealt with any level of self-doubt or insecurity (and who hasn’t), this book is a must-read. Kayla challenges the reader to be proud of who God has uniquely designed each of us to be. We are challenged to look only to our Lord for validity. We are gently reminded of God’s unconditional love for us all!
My advice? Get thee to a bookery (as, per Hamlet!)…and get yourself a copy of In Bloom today!
