Emma Mae Jenkins, a young Christian writer, has inspired many with the freedom she has to be herself a dearly loved child of God. In her first book, Be Loved, she invites readers to join her on a journey of life-changing faith and the freedom that comes from knowing the love of God.
She chronicles her own high school journey through starting a new school, navigating the typical pressures of school work and sports, going to prom, and even homecoming. Emma Mae faced each new challenge with the confidence that God was with her and was going to make her uniquely useful in the place he had prepared for her.
For Emma Mae, it all starts with her relationship with Jesus Christ. Because she knows she is loved by him, she is free to be herself and to live out her faith no matter what the cost. As a young, passionate, and intimate lover of Jesus, Emma Mae's love for her holy Savior overflows unashamedly into her unconditional, fierce love for people.
Readers will experience the chain-breaking liberty of knowing the Lord's presence and the freedom to be unique. This full-color, hardback book includes pictures from Emma Mae's life, along with key Bible verses that God used to strengthen and guide her through the ups and downs of her high school years as a young Christian. Readers will learn to face the challenges of their student years with religion, courage, hope, and lifegiving love for others.
My thoughts: I loved this book! Social media and the world in general could use more Emma Mae Jenkins! While I think this book would be the most affective for middle school and high school readers, since she talks a lot about her own journey through school, there is also a lot to take home for readers out of school. I personally really appreciated the reminder that investing in relationships is always worth it, even when it's hard. This book is so encouraging and like a breath of fresh air. I loved the prayers and scripture verses at the end of each chapter. Whole heartedly recommend this one!
I received this book from the publisher. This is my honest review and is in no way influenced by receiving a complimentary copy.
