Julie Monroe Begins Again by Rebekah Millet blended together funny parts, shaved legs, and forgiveness quite well. The story touches on the consequences of our mistakes and drifting away from God, but carries a clear message of how our relationship with Him can grow to new heights once we return. What’s not to love with a pet named Chewy and Julie’s not-so-affectionate mama?
Now, a few things that could have been considered further:
Why didn’t Samuel sue his ex for paternity, instead of giving her money necessary to raise the child? Men have rights too. And for his ex to sign an agreement—sorry, hoping not to share too much—how is she still a “physical concern” to Julie or even a nuisance to the daughter. The whole agreement thing is horrible when stepping into the child’s shoes. I would be gutted if I was in the daughter’s position.
That aside, I love Kate’s wisdom and Julie’s gifts with regard to the ministry God had placed on her heart.
Her humble prayer on page 223 was an important takeaway of the story.
