Anyone who has struggled with aspects of their personality and christian character, will see themselves in every page of this book.

Written as a diary, it is full of reflective thoughts as if you were the author.
An excellent read, one I shall be gladly passing on to others

This is a book that I keep coming back to read. It's a beautiful story of a girl that struggles to live for God with her impulsive nature. I love watching her through her life and can't help thinking that someone is telling me about myself when I look at her life.

An incredible book.
