When I was about to start reading this book, I had high hopes and was very excited to read the book and I tell you, my hopes were not dashed. Juliana Olayode has not only written an autobiography but she has ministered and changed lives through her rather incredible story. Her story got me praying to God every moment something happens to me, because I learnt of a little girl who prayed to God always, about everything and anything. And I learnt of a God who answers prayers. This kindled my prayer life, How God miraculously answered her prayers is a wonder to me.
This book speaks of a little girl who became a teenager and even though she knew about God at a tender age, she was still going through her process, making mistakes, and learning each and every way up.
This book is an inspiration to young girls, teenagers, youths, parents. It’s an eye opener to so many pains young adults go through while growing up, the reality of the story is overwhelming. Not everyone who has gone through what she went through could have made it out that triumphantly. It tells of the different stages of life, when you are getting to know God, when you’re facing oppositions, when you feel you’re not growing, when you are being deceived and you make costly mistakes.
It tells of how God can raise people up to help you and how that disappointment is a blessing; just like when she wanted to go study abroad and on two occasions it was not possible, it would have seem like God wasn’t granting her request. But he was preparing her for something greater.
This is the story of a young girl who found God early in life, lost touch with him at a point in her life, a teenager who stayed in her process and with the help of God became a celebrated woman.
It’s the story of God’s Unconditional Love, Our uncertainties, Power of prayer, Faith, Parenting, Separation, Family, Friendship, Learning, Growing. And it got me praying at the end.
Wonderful book. ⭐⭐⭐⭐ It has my 4 stars.
