Do you know anyone who could use some encouragement? Perhaps that someone is you. In God Makes Lemonade you'll read stories from everyday folks--Â—people like you and me who discover unexpected sweetness in the midst of sour circumstances. Some of these real-life stories are laugh-out-loud funny, others are sobering, and more than a few will have you reaching for a tissue. But these true stories all have one thing in common: hope.There'Â’s no question that life gives us lemons, like issues with health, employment, and relationships--truly sour circumstances we wouldn'Â’t wish on anyone. But when those lemons become lemonade, it'Â’s as refreshing as an ice-cold drink on a hot summer day. It's true that in life stuff happens, but I have found that Lemonade Happens too! It is my deepest wish that God Makes Lemonade brings you encouragement and inspiration.

About the book:
My take on this book:
I love short stories about real people that encourage and often inspire and that's just what you get in this book. I think when I read about everyday people it allows me to easily relate to what they are going thru, the bits of wisdom that I glean from these stories is invaluable.
In "God Makes Lemonade" is a compilation of over eighty short stories that really touch on a multitude of subjects. Some are heartbreaking while others are heartwarming and even though most of the stories were often only a few pages it was easy for me to feel connected to the people in the stories, and usually I felt uplifted by the stories they shared. I found a few of the stories really stood out for me and I have actually re-read them. I found the index at the beginning of the book very helpful in being able to mark my favorite stories .
The only complaint I have with this book is I wish the author would have grouped stories about similar topics together.
If your someone who needs a spiritual boost or just enjoy stories about real people that will encourage and inspire then your certainly going to enjoy this book.This book is a keeper for me, with stories that I will refer to often. Recommended!
