The Reason: A Book Review

About The Book:

There is a reason you exist . . . 
The day Lacey Sturm planned to kill herself was the day her old life ended. As an atheist who hated Christians, she thought church was a place for hypocrites, fakers, and simpletons. After a screaming match with her grandmother, she ended up in the back of a sanctuary, hating everyone in the room. But what happened in that room is The Reason she is alive today.

With raw vulnerability, this hard rock princess tells her story of physical abuse, depression, suicidal struggles, and more--and her ultimate salvation. She asks the hard questions--Why am I here? Why am I empty? Why should I go on living?--showing that beyond the temporary highs and the soul-crushing lows is a reason each of us exists and a purpose for our lives.

About The Author:

Lacey Sturm is a mother, wife, writer, speaker, and musician. Originally the voice behind the platinum-selling international rock band Flyleaf, she is now a solo artist. But most of all, she is one of God's works of art, and she wants others to know and understand how special, how beautiful, how kaleidoscopically wonderful we are all made. Lacey speaks for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and its Rock the River events. She cofounded the Whosoever Movement and helped begin the RESET movement as one of their key speakers. She lives in Pennsylvania with her family. For more information, visit www.laceysturm.com.

My Review:

A powerful, inspiring, and dramatic read that will remind you of the healing that can only come through faith in our Lord, Jesus Christ. Lacey Sturm writes with an emotional rawness that will grip you from the first words to the last and keep your attention throughout your reading of The Reason. Sturm reminds us that regardless of where we came from, our future is not doomed. Through our crisis' God uses that for His purpose, and there is always a purpose and because we are here for a purpose, our confidence can be found in Him, if we surrender all to Him. The experiences that the author shares will be familiar to some, but the emotions will resonate with all who read The Reason. You will be challenged and encouraged as you read it to remember there is always a reason to live. 

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
