I do love to read and I know that is where Olivia gets her love for reading from. I have always been intrigued by books and the knowledge I get from reading them. Whenever I am offered to do a review on a book, I grab it because when I should be studying for school, I’m found elsewhere reading a book unrelated to my studies. I’m guilty as charged here and have been doing this for years and years now. Olivia does the same now and even though I get angry with her at times for not doing her work, I can’t get mad at her if she is doing the same thing I do.
I was offered to review this amazing book called Captive by Ashley Smith and it was amazing! I knew that it looked like it would be a book that I couldn’t put down once I picked it up from the start and that’s exactly what happened. It’s about following your own purpose in life and for me that is my family and what I believe in. I believe that my family is my all in all and God is the one leading us to be the great people we are today. I want to be a better mom and I want to be a great teacher, wife and daughter too. I look forward to learning new things and learning new subjects especially when I’m learning within my degree. I am currently attending Liberty University Online and while some days may be more challenging than others, I will not let that get me down. My family and God will always be number one to me and my schooling next. I want to be able to provide for my family and while it may not seem like a big thing right now while I’m in school full time, I know that once I graduate I will be able to get a job that will be able to provide my family with plenty of things.
This book has made me realize that it’s not all about the materialistic things in my life but it’s about what our lives can be no matter who we are and where we are. There is also a movie on this amazing book that I look forward to seeing with my family!
