Soul Keeping by John Ortberg: 5/5 Stars

Soul Keeping by John Ortberg – Review

First things first, happy Memorial Day. Today is an impactful day for me as I try to remember and honor the sacrifice of the incredible men and women who laid down their lives for this country. It also reminds me of the first war hero, Jesus Christ, who fought the battle of flesh and darkness for us. He has already won.

Second, you may have noticed it’s been quiet around here lately… Well, I have been all kinds of bloggish evil because I took a week off. GASP! I’ve been spending a lot of time getting my blog just right and reading (and writing reviews) like crazy to crank out three posts a week. It’s hard sometimes. I want every review I write to be a good one, so it can be stressful sometimes to stick to a (pretty ruthless) schedule. So I was lazy. I’m sorry.

The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank – Review

This week’s review is a bit of a throwback. 😉 I read The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank back in January of this year, but since I’m lazy, you’re finally hearing about it now.

That’s not to say, though, that it didn’t impact me or it didn’t sober me. There is a lot of responsibility to never let something like the Holocaust ever happen again; even a semblance of it. And I don’t take that lightly.

I just didn’t feel as impacted by The Diary of a Young Girl as much as I had expected I would be. And that’s fine. I was still touched, and it was still worth reading. Even if it didn’t feel like it at times.

Confused? I am too.

Let me try to clear my thoughts up for you in a proper review.
