Book Review: Becoming Us by Robin Jones Gunn

It was a delight to meet author Robin Jones Gunn in person this past February at the West Coast Christian Writers Conference.  I first met her at a conference six years ago.  We compared the photos and agreed that we had aged just a tad since then. :)    All that to say-- it is a true privilege to review and endorse a book by an author I have personally met and can tell you is just as sincere and wonderful as her books are.  If you ever get the chance to hear her speak, take the opportunity!  Her words are life-changing and life-giving.

Robin Jones Gunn's latest novel continues her main character Christy's story as she navigates being a young mother and her friendships with other mothers.  It is book 1 in the Haven Makers series. Becoming Us by Robin Jones Gunn is an absolute delight to read.  For long time readers of this author's books, picking up a new book is like coming home. The familiar characters (and some new) and familiar places all bring together a distinct setting unlike any other. I particularly loved the themes in this book-- women's friendships, motherhood, and infertility. I love how Robin conveys that we are all works in progress. Robin Jones Gunn never fails to speak to my heart. Reading a book of hers makes me grow closer to God every time. 

Becoming Us releases on May 7th.  Pick it up right away.  It is the perfect gift for young mothers.  I am sincerely glad for the ministry of Robin Jones Gunn in my own life and I think this book will resonate with many readers.  I received a digital copy of this book from the publisher with no obligations. These opinions are entirely my own.
