Hugs, Hope and Peanut Butter Book Review

This book is for anyone who has ever been discouraged, disappointed or just plain tired. “Hugs, Hope and Peanut Butter” is a compilation of essays that will lighten your day and lift your spirit. The author, Marsha Mott Jordan drew from her own experiences of dealing with chronic pain and depression in writing this light-hearted book delivering a message of hope. It is a collection of stories of normal everyday life events and mishaps, seen from a humorous point of view. Each left me smiling and some left me laughing out loud.
“Once again, life had happened while I was making other plans.” Page 91

Ms Jordan writes in and easy to read style and is honest about her own shortcomings and struggles. The book is full of situations that I’m sure we all can relate to. And as a bonus, I noticed that each story sneakily led into a Bible truth or teaching about suffering, discouragement and hope so that before I realized it, I’d had a Bible study.
“I’ve found that where there is manure, there’s sometimes a lesson buried under it.” Page 96

The humor and Bible teaching are enough to recommend the book, but the most important incentive is that all proceeds are donated to the Hugs and Hope Foundation for Critically Ill Children, a non-profit charity founded by Ms Jordan after her grandson was badly burned. The foundation addresses the emotional needs of sick children and their families. “Hugs, Hope and Peanut Butter” is illustrated with drawings by the critically ill children that she helps.
