Lacey Sturm takes you through her journey in finding a true Father and also on finding true love!
Lacey Sturm’s second book takes you through another part of her life that wasn’t told in her first book The Reason. She opens her heart to bring out her experiences on both understanding what a true spiritual father does and also her journey that led her to her husband Josh. The first part of the book is on having a father. Lacey doesn’t recall ever meeting her father and she believed that she never needed one. In fact she felt that if you relied on someone in that role it made you week. But through experiences with a couple that becomes her spiritual parents, she begins to realize that they guide her and coach her, but still let her make her own decisions and lover her regardless.
The second half of the book focuses on her relationship with her husband Josh. Lacey entered into a previous marriage at age nineteen and was divorced by twenty-one. Shortly after that she got tangled up in an emotional affair with a married man that almost led her to take her life. Once she was healed from those experiences, she realized that she could (and should in her opinion) stay single for the remainder of her life. But that wasn’t in God’s plan. Throughout this part, Lacey recounts the trials, successes, and experiences of meeting Josh, his parents, and eventually becoming married.
I really enjoyed reading this book from Lacey Sturm. I always enjoy reading books written by people that I follow in the entertainment industry. Sometimes you like them more, sometimes you don’t, but either way you feel like you get to know them on a more personable level. Lacey does a great job of opening her heart to let people in to share in her experiences and lessons learned. I especially enjoyed the first part of the book that was focused more on a parent. It made me sit back and really evaluate my relationship with my own two boys to see how I was approaching to coach and guide them. I recommend this book to those that may feel trapped in a relationship or searing for guidance.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Baker Publishing Group in exchange for an honest and thorough review. The views and opinions expressed within are my own.
