It's Not Over by Joshua Gagnon

IT’S NOT OVER

About It’s Not Over: Leaving Behind Disappointment and Learning to Dream Again

Paperback: 224 pages
Publisher: Thomas Nelson (February 25, 2020)
Disappointed with your life? Worried you’ll never achieve your dreams? Don’t be discouraged; it’s not over!
As children, we dream of someday being a superhero or an astronaut, a parent or a business owner, an actress or a sports star. The more outrageous the dream, the more sure we are that it will happen! Yet as we mature, hardships, hurts, and failures chip away at our dreams. Our past longings can seem like the naive wishes of childhood instead of the foundation of the life we were meant to live.
In It’s Not Over, pastor Joshua Gagnon, founder of the Next Level Church network, reminds us that we were born to dream—and to dream big. In fact, our dreams have the power to shape our lives. Join Joshua in discovering the answers to these questions and many more:
  • How does dreaming help you discover your purpose?
  • How do you identify whether a dream is even worth chasing?
  • How do you overcome resistance, criticism, and doubt?
  • How do you pray bold prayers when you don’t feel like praying at all?
  • How do you finish strong on the journey toward your dream?
If you find yourself minimizing your dreams or feeling defeated by inner or outer resistance, there is good news: it’s not over! As long as you have breath in your lungs, God has a dream for you to chase. It’s what you were created for. And you can start today.

My Thoughts:
It's Not Over is the perfect book for anyone who has a God size dream in their heart. Whether the dream is something new or you've given up on your dream, this book is for you. The size of your dream doesn't matter, but as long as it comes from the heart of God, it will come into fruition. 
With practical advice, this book will have the reader nodding their head and highlighting paragraphs. This book is simple, yet thought provoking for the reader. I found myself thinking about my God size dream and asking myself questions, as I read through this book. It gave me practical advice on how I can pursue my God-given dream, especially in a difficult time in our world, where we are focused on COVID-19. This book brought me life and encouragement. I highly recommend picking up a copy today.

The Happy Camper by Melody Carlson

46125016The Happy Camper

About:
Home is the place to heal, right? At least, that's what Dillon Michaels is hoping as she leaves her disappointing career and nonstarter love life behind to help her grieving and aging grandfather on his small Oregon farm. The only problem? Her eccentric mother beat her there and has taken over Dillon's old room. After a few nights sleeping on a sagging sofa, Dillon is ready to give up, until she receives an unlikely gift--her grandfather's run-down vintage camp trailer, which she quickly resolves to restore with the help of Jordan Atwood, the handsome owner of the local hardware store.

But just when things are finally beginning to run smoothly, Dillon's noncommittal ex-boyfriend shows up with roses . . . and a ring.

My Thoughts:
The Happy Camper is an adorable book that I could not put down. I love author, Melody Carlson. She writes a fantastic, delightful and light novel. The Happy Camper has all the elements that I love in a book. The main character Dillon is a go-getter and has the attitude of "I can get it done." She is determined more then ever to DIY a vintage trailer. In the process of making her trailer into something that is functional, she learns that the previous life she led, was not all that she had thought it to be. She also meets Jordan Atwood who helps her transform her trailer. Her trailer isn't the only thing that is changed by Jordan, but her heart. 

This book has the romance, laughter, family and faith elements that every reader wants to read. I was able to read this book quick because it was so light and adorable. If you're looking for a light read, that is fun and has a side of romance, order your copy today of The Happy Camper. You will not be disappointed.
