My daughter’s due date was still a few weeks away; however, she was exhibiting signs of early labor. Knowing I would need reading material to take to the hospital, I decided to hold onto Soul Moments. Toward the end, our pregnancy experience was straight out of a Hollywood comedy (think Father of the Bride, Part 2 with Steve Martin and Diane Keaton). There were several “false labor” moments that afforded me the opportunity to start to read Soul Moments. Each time we were sent home proved to be more difficult to put away the book.
Broken down into twenty easy to read chapters, the book is easy to pick up when you have “just a little” time to read. Had I not have kept it for the hospital, it would have been ideal to read on breaks at work. In each chapter, Isabel uses things such as a story from the day-to-day life of her family or something she has seen on television to make a point. She beautifully describes the example, draws a biblical comparison and imparts some wisdom/advice. At times, it’s like reading an email or letter from a friend. That is what I found so touching and why I chose it as my book of choice for the hospital.
If you have never read any of Isabel Anders books, I would highly recommend Soul Moments. She has a way of seeing all of the beautiful things in the world, seeing the good in any situation, and meticulously painting the picture for her readers. Her style is one of ease and grace…never “preachy”….she is a joy to read.
