Get Back Up: A Blog Tour and Review

About The Book:

Life is not always easy or fair for the follower of Christ. Yet, Sheryl Giesbrecht has learned, from the depths of past pain, it is possible to be raised up. It is possible to heal. Most importantly, it is possible to exchange hurt for hope. In her inspirational new book, Get Back Up: Trusting God When Life Knocks You Down, Sheryl tells her own story. She uses scripture to tell the stories of so many other Biblical figures who stumbled before they could be helped up. Sheryl’s message is one of hope. Trusting God in the midst of a life turned upside down is essential to survival. Without Him, life would not be worth living. Climbing out of the pits of despair would be impossible. Yes, with God to lean on, finding hope is possible. Healing is possible. God is capable of taking our losses and mistakes and turning them into something remarkably beautiful. Won’t you let Him?

My Review:
Life can be tough.
Many of us have experienced terrible life journey's. Be it the deaths of loved ones, illness, marriage crisis', addiction, abuse and more. Just because one is a Christian does not make us exempt from a hard life and tough expeirences.
 However, because we are in Christ, we can hope. It is our hope in Christ through difficulty that author, Sheryl Giesbrecht, discusses in Get Back Up. 
Through writing of her personal journey and using a lot of scriptural references, Giesbrecht will encourage you right where you are. I loved the style of writing, and enjoyed thinking through the study questions that were at the end of each chapter. She not only included her personal story and scripture but also intertwined Biblical stories to help apply it to our own lives and learn from them. 
It does not matter what experiences you have had, or trials, this book is sure to impact everyone who reads it. 
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
