My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is subtitled as “a mercifully short book about a really big problem.” Kevin DeYoung approaches the issue that we are always so busy with everyday life and presents it as a problem to be resolved post haste. DeYoung asserts that this problem isn’t a small issue, but rather a large challenge to be approached: this constant pace of busyness is wrecking havoc to our physical, social, and spiritual well-being. DeYoung believes that a life full of busyness is in stark opposition to what G-d intended for us. There needs to be a balance between being lazy and being overworked, but what is it? That’s what DeYoung hopes to reveal in this book.

[Audiobook] “Grace Unplugged” by Melody Carlson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Grace Trey is eighteen years old. While passionate about her Christian faith, she is also passionate about her craft: her musical talent. This probably sounds familiar: it’s a major motion picture, and this audiobook is based off of it. Much like the movie, Grace is faced with the big break and the life challenges come with it: pop stardom or staying true to the faith. While one could argue both is possible, Miley Ray Cyrus just recently proved that with fame comes the fall of one’s faith. This audiobook delves into the struggles Grace experiences in an intimate view of her thoughts and internal dialogue. In fact, in many ways, this audiobook reminds me of Miley’s early years on the Disney channel and her public proclamations to never let down the Christian faith community.
