Review of the book It's Okay about It by Lauren Casper

I really enjoyed this book. It is about a parent who has an autistic son and she writes about his life lessons that we all can learn from and help better our life. I like the quote on page 15 says " What we see as set-backs or standstills are actually turning points in our story. We see failure, but GOD sees progress and gently nudges us to keep walking, or crawling,forward-to pick ourselves up and try again and again and again. " Another quote is " I'm learning that GOD often works that way in our lives-quietly behind the curtain, moving all the parts to create something beautiful and unexpected. But because I don't have his perspective, and I can't see the plan for building my unique life, I complain and worry."

I also like the quote on page 27 that says " Scripture points to the important and value of all our emotions as response to life. There's an entire book of the bible titled Lamentations. A lamentation is defined as weeping, or a passionate expression of grief or sorrow. To lament something is to outwardly express the full agony felt in your heart, because there are moments in life when no other response is appropriate. Ecclesiastes 3:4 tells us there is a time to weep, and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance. This tells me that weeping and mourning are just as important as laughing and dancing."

I like the quote on page 41" sometimes GOD takes us on an exhausting, uphill battle. We stumble and fall and think we can't do it, but when we get up and take our Father's hand, we find that together we can do more than we ever though possible."

Disclousre of Material Connection. I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review.
