An Anchored Book Review And A Giveaway!



Now, I’m not a mother and I can’t even begin to imagine the pain of delivering a premature baby. I would like to think that I would walk through that trial with grace and complete trust in God. But, let’s be honest, you never know how you will respond to a situation until you are smack dab in the middle of it.

That is just what Kayla Aimee did in her new book Anchored: Finding Hope In The Unexpected. With moving scripture, gut wrenching honesty and loads of humor, Kayla walks us through her new journey of motherhood with the premature birth of her daughter, Scarlette. She reconsidered her faith, her husband and her identity. She leads us to that place where God desires for all of us to be…alone with Him and His truth. She maneuvers through months and months of living a new normal while standing vigilant over her tiny daughter.

Our faith comes from God and is strengthened by Him. His heart is for us to have unwavering and unshakable faith. It’s only by walking with Him and finding Him all together faithful that He develops this faith in us. The moments when our faith may falter, God can handle it. He won’t let us fall. He won’t let the world crash in around us. He is there with us, guiding us and working on our behalf.


To celebrate the release of Kayla’s book B&H Publishing is giving away a copy of Anchored!



Leave a comment below and share with me a time when your hope in the Lord was transformed and you found it in the most unexpected place.

The winner will be chosen this Saturday, July 18th at 9pm Central Time.

    I seem to find hope in the darkest places. Infertility. Alzheimer’s. Isn’t that just like God to show hope where there is none?

    My hope was restored during a rough time at our church.

    Hi Karina!! This sounds like an amazing book!! My faith has been strengthened so much over the last 11 years with all my health issues, but it really grew the last year when it felt that I had lost everything and Jesus was all I had left. But He definitely was more than enough!

    It’s not a journey I would choose, but it’s true that God is with me through the hardest times, and my faith grows in ways it never can otherwise. Thanks for a chance to win a copy of “Anchored” – books are my love language!
