He Knew I Would Tell by Cheryl Mochau~★★★★

Author: Cheryl Mochau
Title: He Knew I Would Tell: Short Stories of God Moments in the Lives of Ordinary People
Release Date: November 5th, 2010
Publisher: AuthorHouse
Genre: Non-fiction

Book Cover: "Jesus said, 'Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?' John 11:40. Ask anyone who believes in God if they have ever witnessed His presence and they'll probably have a story to share. He Knew I Would Tell is a collection of short stories of 'God moments' as they have occurred in ordinary people's lives. 
God moments happen all the time. Most people don't notice, or tend to ignore them or chalk them up to coincidences. But when His presence comes on strong, He is impossible to ignore! He Knew I Would Tell. Maybe, just maybe, these things happened to these particular people because He knew they would tell! Jesus said, 'Return home and tell how much God has done for you.' Luke 8:39."

Taryn's Review: My mom doesn't really read books and she never really has. She would make an earnest attempt now and then when a popular book would catch on, but most of the time the book would end up in my little hands and I would devour it. She always wanted to read, but just struggled with attention issues and perhaps was a bit overwhelmed by the sheer size of most books.

Imagine my surprise when she brought me this book and she said she read it! I love when people pick up a book and connect with it, and for my mom, this one did it for her.

It's a smaller book and the font was liberally sized, but the message was sweet and moving. It's a compilation of various stories told by people or relayed the author by others. Sometimes the book felt a little disjointed with the many breaks, but I finished the book carrying a positive message from those who had had an interaction with God or the Holy Spirit. The book was also dotted with scriptures throughout, so for anyone who enjoys biblical passages, it was a nice touch to connect them to the stories.

I think this book is awesome for anyone who loves a moving story combined with Christianity. It's easy to stop and restart this book or to re-read a short story when you need a pick-me-up. My favorite story in the book was one called, "Welcome Home." This was a nice, quick read for me and I'm glad to have read it.
