God Makes Lemonade by Don Jacobson

Thursday, October 27, 2011
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—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’s no question that life gives us “lemons,” like issues with health, employment, and relationships—truly sour circumstances we wouldn’t wish on anyone. But when those lemons become lemonade, it’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.

Goodreads Summary

This book was a wonderful compilation of factual stories that are meant to be encouraging and are completely realistic.  The stories are both heart-breaking and will teach the reader a lesson or two along the way.  The stories do not always end well, but that really depends upon the readers' perception.  The stories can be medical related, drug related, familial related, etc... There is definitely something for everyone.  A reader does not have to read nonfiction constantly to enjoy this book. 

There were so many touching stories combined that this book is not meant to be devoured, but savored.  This is the perfect read for a long car ride or to put by the bedside table.  This book is recommended for teens/young adults/adults.
