Book Description:
God Makes Lemonade True Stories that Sweeten & Inspire

I bet you could use a little good news right about now. We have just the book for you! In God Makes Lemonade™ you'll read stories from everyday folks
who discover unexpected sweetness in the midst of sour circumstances.

Some of these real-life stories are laugh-out-loud funny, others are sobering, and more than a few will have you reaching for a tissue. We sure did!

But these true stories all have one thing in common: hope.
There's no question that life gives us "lemons," like issues with health, employment, and relationships-truly sour circumstances we wouldn't wish on anyone. But when those lemons become lemonade, it's as refreshing as an ice-cold drink on a hot summer day.

About Don Jacobson

Don Jacobson's twenty-five years in publishing included serving as the president and owner of Multnomah Publishers, where he oversaw the production of more than 1000 titles, including the five-million-plus-selling series Stories for the Heart. He's had the pleasure of working with such best-selling authors as Randy Alcorn, Joni Eareckson Tada, Henry Blackaby, Robin Jones Gunn, Karen Kingsbury, Andy Stanley, and Bruce Wilkinson. Don's wife, Brenda, has been mentoring mothers for more than a decade.

Jacobson and his wife are passionate about helping single mothers and their children, so the royalties from God Makes Lemonade will benefit these unsung heroes through the LemonAid Foundation.

My Thoughts: Having been a huge fan of Chicken Soup for the Soul, I was curious to read God Makes Lemonade. I found this book to be very encouraging and full of great stories. This would be a great book to give as a gift to a newly divorced person, widowed, or anyone struggling. When we are hit with life's uncertainties we sometimes wonder if God is who He is, and while the Bible has great encouragement in Psalms & Proverbs, when we read a story from someone else something clicks in our head. That's probably why Jesus taught in parables. I highly recommend this book!!!
