Rosebud Blooming by Nancy Maggio~ A review
In her book, Rosebud Blooming, Nancy extends a welcoming hand and invites us to come along as she recounts the incredible events that have shaped her into who she is today. Through her own poetry and vivid first hand accounts, she unveils the heart-wrenching trials and amazing triumphs she has faced, many of which will leave you shaking your head in the awesome power of God to change even the hardest and wayward of hearts.
Nancy's heart has been on a wild roller coaster ride and it was amazing to me to see how God has shaped and changed her from the inside out. I love to read people's testimonies and see where God has brought them from, and to see evidence of God's sovereign hand lain out plainly for the whole world to see. To me, Nancy's story is proof that God works miracles in lives that are willing to see them happen.
This is a short read and didn't take me very long to finish, and yet, honestly, I really struggled with this book. Nancy has really been through some amazing things in her life, but I found a lack of depth to the way she told her story; a lack of passion in the written words. I found myself wanting to skim over parts and hurry on ahead to the next chapter. It wasn't a book I wanted to keep coming back to, but I would recommend it to those wanting encouragement if they are facing trials they do not think God can overcome.
I'm giving Rosebud Blooming 3.5 stars, because, even though Nancy's writing may not have been attention grabbing, her testimony of God's amazing power to overcome seemingly impossible obstacles definitely was!
