Book Review: Living Inside the Testimony

Living Inside the Testimony, Betty Collier

Please excuse any errors. This is my first formal review, so please bear with me. :)

Living Inside the Testimony is by new author, Betty Collier.

Though she calls herself an unexpected author, I must say that I'm glad she branched out and wrote this book.

Mrs. Collier takes us deep into her personal life. Albeit small, this book is chock-full with a deep and touching story.

I wasn't sure what to expect from this book. What I found surprised me, quite pleasantly.

Her story is one of strength, determination and faith. She is very open and honest about her struggles.

What I like about this book is that it's as if you're sitting at a table having coffee with Mrs. Collier and she's telling her story. It's warm, familiar, and personal. You get a good sense of who she is as a person. It's a very endearing trait of this book.

The one thing I didn't like? I wanted more. That's actually a good thing. They say that the mark of any good artist is to leave your audience wanting more. Mrs. Collier DEFINITELY does that with her book. There is so much to her and her incredible story. There are some parts where she just glazes over the story and you find yourself smiling, silently begging her for more!

It was a pleasant, quick read. Thank you, Betty Collier, for taking me on this journey with you.

Happy reading! :)
