When God Makes Lemonade

I bet you could use a little good news right about now. We have just the book for you! In God Makes Lemonade™ you'll read stories from everyday folks  who discover unexpected sweetness in the midst of sour circumstances.

Some of these real-life stories are laugh-out-loud funny, others are sobering, and more than a few will have you reaching for a tissue. We sure did!

But these true stories all have one thing in common: hope.
There's no question that life gives us "lemons," like issues with health, employment, and relationships-truly sour circumstances we wouldn't wish on anyone. But when those lemons become lemonade, it's as refreshing as an ice-cold drink on a hot summer day.


About the Author 
Don Jacobson's twenty-five years in publishing included serving as the president and owner of Multnomah Publishers, where he oversaw the production of more than 1000 titles, including the five-million-plus-selling series Stories for the Heart. He's had the pleasure of working with such best-selling authors as Randy Alcorn, Joni Eareckson Tada, Henry Blackaby, Robin Jones Gunn, Karen Kingsbury, Andy Stanley, and Bruce Wilkinson. Don's wife, Brenda, has been mentoring mothers for more than a decade.

Jacobson and his wife are passionate about helping single mothers and their children, so the royalties from God Makes Lemonade will benefit these unsung heroes through the LemonAid Foundation.



My Thoughts 

When God Makes Lemonade is a very sweet book. If you are a little sappy like me, you'll need a box of tissues. The book is full of inspirational stories of families that overcame hardships. We all face situations in our lives and we tend to bury ourselves in our self pity party. The true stories that are compiled together, show that we are not the only ones facing difficult times.  Just to name a few of my favorite stories ~ Held By Love, Can I Call You Mom?, and Katie's Gift. 


I received this book for free from Glass Road Publications, in return for my honest opinion.
