Welcome to Rapid-Fire Fiction’s  Fast-Rope Review of Babbie Mason’s EMBRACED BY GOD: Celebrating Who and Whose You Are. I know. You’re surprise. I don’t normally review non-fiction here unless it’s military- or research-related to my writing. But this is a real treat!

About the book:

Have you ever wondered, “Does God really love me? Do I really matter to him?”


As a matter of fact, God loves you just as much as he loves His own Son.

In the pages of this heartwarming, thoughtful and life-affirming 21-day journey, award-winning gospel singer, songwriter, and teacher Babbie Mason reminds you, when you know you are loved by God and that you are in His eternal plan, you’ll never again wonder if your life matters.

First – let me all-out say that I rarely do non-fiction books for review on my blog, mostly because I have so little time that the NF books I do read are usually research related. But when this invitation to join this tour dropped into my box, it was like the world slowed. I knew I had to join the tour.

So, I did. And I’m really glad I did. I did get the book with enough time to do the 21-day challenge, but I have been working through the chapters on my own. They are beautiful and poignant. Very thought-provoking, especially if one takes the time to really apply them, to consider the words. I am really looking forward to finishing this book with its 21-day challenge. In a world where we’re told how replaceable we are, it can be challenging to honestly open your heart to words and thoughts that say you are greatly loved. Then, to EMBRACE those words–that’s humbling!!

I do have one “hmm…” about this book. Will not say it’s a negative. The chapters for each day are long. I’m in a rough place right now, where my time is pretty much not my own with my upended life, homeschooling, edits, and book deadlines. So, the 15-20 page chapters are killers for me, especially since I’m trying to do this in addition to my normal quiet time. They’re just too long for me. And like I said–that is not a bad thing because there is relevant, heart-stirring content. Just realize this isn’t a “mere devotional.”

Overall, a powerful, poignant book that has the potential to revolutionize your thoughts and how God views you! Beautifully done!

 Link to buy the book:

Embraced by God is a 21-day encounter that shares the unconditional love of God. “If you watch what the media says as to where we should find our identity–” says Babbie, “–money, beauty, power and technology–you’ll just be confused about who you are and what your purpose is. As a culture we are trying to buy or sell what can only be administered to the soul by Jesus.”

    Mrs. Kendig,

    I truly enjoy your “Nightshade series”. Although I do have one minor issue. On the back cover of “Digitalis” it refers to Colton “Cowboy” Neely as an ex-Marine. You should know that there is no such thing as an ex-Marine. The saying is “Once a Marine, always a Marine”. This goes even if they are retired. If you don’t believe me ask a Marine.
