One thing that I have always loved is a good book to sit down and read. I love to sit down with them and read them on a rainy day, or on my down time while studying or when avoiding to do my homework for school. Which happens more often than you think. When I was asked to have the chance to review this book I was so excited to begin to read it. It was perfect reading material compared to packing up the house which in my opinion at the time was more time consuming and boring! A good book was what I needed more!
This book was written by Kelly Minter and it was soulful and meaningful. It made me believe that I was traveling along in the story and made me want to travel around the world rather than just along the east coast like usual. Although I probably should travel more than just to Florida or to Orlando but who’s saying anything about that? Not me? This book brought meaning to my life and “Wherever the River Runs” made me really believe that no matter what, there is something out there waiting for me to go exploring! Doesn’t mean it has to happen today but one day it will happen, maybe just not now!
Here is more about the book:
In WherevertheRiver Runs, Kelly Minter invites us on a journey down a river teeming with piranhas and caimans, as well as machete-wielding mothers, heroic jungle pastors, faith-filled children, and miracles too seldom experienced in our part of the world. Kelly’s honest and engaging narrative pulls back the curtain on one of the most captivating places on earth as well as on parts of the gospel we may be able to recite but have never fully believed.
On this beautiful adventure through the jungles of Brazil and the tangles of the soul, Kelly rediscovers Jesus among a forgotten people living well beyond the corners of her previously defined faith–a people who draw her back to their country, their pain, and their hope in Him, again and again.
“Kelly Minter writes the way a portrait artist paints.” — Beth Moore, Living Proof Ministries
“The best thing I can say about WherevertheRiver Runs is that I closed the last page, bowed my head, and said, ‘God, send me too.’ Thank you, Kelly, for your courage, leadership, and faithfulness.” — Jen Hatmaker (speaker, blogger, and author of 7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess)
