Now Is The Time by Lee Spotts Book Review

About the Book:

A raw, honest, and relatable true story of one young girls emotional and physical abuse and how her faith helped her to persevere, overcome and ultimately break free. Follow Lizbeth's journey as she deals with her mothers schizophrenia and watch her grow in faith and connection to God. The abuse is heartbreaking but God shows up in mighty ways to pull her through.

My Review:

This is an honest story of growing up in a dysfunctional family and finding hope in God. Hers is quite a story. Spotts' mother was mentally ill, with extreme mood swings and then paranoia. Spotts had to rely on God for strength to navigate her perilous childhood. Periodically she would wander away from keeping God as her focus and problems would develop. Yet God saw her through all the situations that could have ended in terrible tragedy.

Spotts encourages readers with her inspiring story. She has included a link to an informative video and draws our attention to several songs. That brings more of an emotional experience to the memoir. Her writing style is straightforward and easy to comprehend.

Spotts knows from experience God is forming us, drawing us closer to Him. “Christ sees us not full of impurity, but full of potential.” (163) Her memoir is one that reminds us to remember the difference God makes in our lives when we rely on Him.

My rating: 4/5 stars.

From the Author:

For years I felt led to tell my story, but the time never felt right. One day while praying and listening to worship music I heard God’s voice tell me Now is the Time. I have learned that when I hear that voice I need to obey. I picked up my laptop and the pages began to flow. What previously would not come suddenly came with ease.

The pages of Now is the Time will reveal the story of a young girl who found hope, strength, and peace through trials and tribulations. You will be drawn into her world, see her heart, and see what God did in the midst of a life that looked like it was destined for tragedy. It is the story of abuse overcome by faith. I pray the story brings hope to others that may be struggling in a similar circumstance.

Independently Published, 173 pages.
