Hope Unfolding Book Review

I was lucky enough to get an advanced copy of Hope Unfolding by Becky Thompson (of Scissortail Silk), and let me tell you… if you are a wife and mother, you need this book in your life. Within the very first few pages, I knew this book was for me, and every page after that reaffirmed that notion. I took a deep, cleansing sigh of relief because- hallelujah- someone else knows my heart and shares my struggles!

Becky’s writing is beautiful, but still realistic and relatable. She makes you feel like a real friend and discusses motherhood, marriage and faith using all of the words that you feel but can never find to say, and every bit of it speaks right to your heart.

A Midwestern girl, Becky uses her experiences as a wife and mother of three young children to give practical and honest advice with real-world applications. Ladies, this book isn’t written from the point of view of someone who has climbed out of the valley and is now shouting instruction from the mountain tops. No, Becky writes directly from the trenches of motherhood and her life as it were. And at the end of each chapter, she poses though-provoking questions with real-life anecdotes that are applicable to women in all stages of life.

In a face-value world, Becky invites us to go deeper with her- being completely transparent about her innermost thoughts on life and faith. And then, into our tired hearts, she speaks the real truth, plain as day:

“We need Jesus.”

Guys, as soon as you get a chance, pick up a copy of this book. Your heart will thank you. You can pre-order here now!
