Love is the theme throughout Taffi Dollar’s book called Embracing the Love God Wants You to Have. Taffi tells you how to apply God’s love in different relationships in your life and I must say she does this very well. Taffi helps her readers understand that sometimes we are acting our of fear and not love. She helps us see fear by explaining God’s love.
As a fearful person myself I truly enjoyed reading this book. Not only did she give other people testimonials but she did talked about herself, which made this book so relational. I often say we can mistake love for fear and vice versa. There is a chapter that speaks to my heart she talks about Esther being an orphan something I can understand clearly being an orphan myself. She explained that you can have a fear or rejection and feel abandoned but not realize that you carry that in relationships with other people. The other chapters that resonated in my heart was Embracing God’s Love, Giving and Receiving Love and Parenting with Love. This was the first book I read by Taffi Dollar and this will not be my last.
This book is well suited for many different target audiences including young adults, parenting ministries, marriage ministries and women’s ministry. The book also comes with reflective journal as well as though provoking questions at the end of each chapter. My recommendation is that towards the end the book seemed rushed and she could have given an overall summary of the book and what we should have gotten out of it. Overall, I was very happy with this book it was thought provoking, honest and inspiring.
I was given this book to review in exchange for my honest opinion I did not receive any monetary funds.
