It was a Saturday when I had nothing to do. “Welp I guess I’m going to the Christian bookstore.” It was a lot of traffic and a long line when I got there. “Welp, I guess I’m going to be in here for a while.” I spent an hour looking through the entire store. Finally, I went to the women’s section. “Welp I guess I’m a woman.”
The cover of the book is so beautiful and girly. When I flipped through the pages, I realized we had a lot of things in common. The persona of having it all together, the awkward phase growing up, etc. The way she writes is so personal. Holley Gerth really does make you feel like you’re out having coffee with the girls.
Tonight I will dive into the book some more. I will give you an update once I am done. If you have read this book before please let me know. ❤
For me, it was hard giving up secular music. The melodies and catchy hooks kept me addicted for so long. Not all of it is bad, but I need to be filled with the holy spirit other than sermons. Here are a few artist I listen to.
I applied for a job at a Christian book store. “Well let’s go see about my application and find a book.” I left with a journal and “Uncommon” by Carey Scott
Here are key points of the book
234 pages with large print
Paragraphs of personal stories
Highlights of uncommon women in The Bible (such as Deborah in leadership)
Bible scriptures with clear explanations
The book focuses on how being a Christian woman is out of the ordinary. Each chapter breaks down different principles. My top 3 chapters were: forgiveness gratitude & hunger for God. She had a perfect blend of biblical notes and her life dealing with her health and family.
Entertaining and informative, it was the first book I dedicated my time to in a while. I recommend this book for all levels of paths with Christ. Uncommon had me feeling more confident to live boldly for Jesus.
