About The Book

How can God reach someone who appears unreachable? Will the love of God be enough to break every chain and loose the trap of the enemy? In her debut book, Author Karen Adams struggles to understand how a loving God would allow life to be so unbearable. Facing childhood molestation, years of crack addiction, nervous breakdowns, and admissions to mental wards, she learned that no matter how difficult life was, God continued to extend His love. Trying to Outrun the Love of God, is a deeply moving story of one woman’s journey filled with suffering and pain, but one that ultimately finds wholeness and deliverance in the arms of a loving Savior. A must read for all those who think they are alone.

My Review
I received an electronic copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.  This in no way influenced my review.

Karen Adam shares a wonderful testimony in Trying to Outrun the Love of God.  She shows how no matter what you have done and no matter what life has brought you through God will ALWAYS love you.  Nothing can separate you from his love!

I sincerely enjoyed Karen Adam's testimony, but I wish that the book had been written in chronological order.  I found her story a bit confusing at times, but overall it was a great message that everyone needs to hear.  I am glad that I read her testimony and I am sure it will influence all that will read this book as much as it has influenced me!

And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.  
-Revelation 12:11

Children's Book Review Tuesdays: Dying to Meet You by Kate Klise

Book Title: Dying to Meet You

Series Title: 43 Old Cemetery Road (Book 1)

Author: Kate Klise

Publish Date: April 6, 2009

Genre: Middle Grade Paranormal

About the Book (from Goodreads):  

Enter at your own risk: You might just DIE laughing.

The best-selling author Ignatius B. Grumply moves into the Victorian mansion at 43 Old Cemetery Road, hoping to find some peace and quiet so that he can crack a wicked case of writer's block.

But 43 Old Cemetery Road is already occupied--by an eleven-year-old boy named Seymour, his cat, Shadow, and an irritable ghost named Olive.

And they have no intention of sharing!

Why I Read this Book: I saw this at my local Goodwill and thought that it would be wonderful for Dewey's Readathon that I participated in last week.


This book was pun-y!  Dying to Meet You is written in the form of letters and newspaper articles.  It contains incredibly cute illustrations.  This book would be perfect for anyone wanting a fun read that makes you laugh out loud.  It is a perfect read for Halloween.  It teaches you the importance of being nice and helping others.  I hope that I can read the rest of the series very soon!
