On 8/2 Christy McGraw wrote: It's the kind of book that deserves a slow read... a savoring. Why? Because it's everything a book should be.

Love Does by Bob Goff.
On 3/30 Christy McGraw wrote: I read Searching For God Knows What last year when I was going through a time of searching in my life. Searching for me and for Him.

On 3/3 Christy McGraw wrote: I requested this book from Thomas Nelson’s review program because I work with teen girls.

On 9/8 Christy McGraw wrote: Fear corrodes our confidence in God’s goodness. –Max Lucado I don’t think there has been a better time for this book.

On 8/9 Christy McGraw wrote: The reason I picked up this book in the first place was the title. At this point in my life it feels like I am riding a tilt-a-whirl so the title piqued my interest immediately! I was fascinated with this book from the preface. N.D.

On 11/24 Christy McGraw wrote: I was not sure what I was going to think of this book…I will be honest I had started tuning out Britney stories awhile ago because I just could not see this young woman fall any farther.
