Don't Miss This Day!

When I heard the forecast, "Snow in TEXAS," I knew the time had come . . . to read Billy Coffey's "Snow Day." You see, I had requested his book to review months ago, but set it aside for that moment when the stage was set and I would fully experience it. Why? Because if you've read Billy Coffey's blog posts, you know that you are in for a real treat. Everything he writes reaches deep into your soul and opens your heart, leaving you only wanting more. So, I knew his debut novel was going to be a winner! I wasn't disappointed. For the next 5 hours, I "hunkered" down and experienced my own Snow Day. As I finished chapter 3 . . . the snow began to fall and what took place in my heart through the following chapters was riveting.

Billy Coffey's writing is brilliant. He has the ability to reach deep into your heart and soul and reveal what's there and what's missing. He has a gift that is to be treasured. "Snow Day's" Peter Boyd is no different than any of us, except that he looks beneath the surface of life . . . and through his Snow Day, he gets you to as well. Each chapter brings with it a breathtaking moment that causes you to examine your own heart and press forward in your faith. On a snow day . . . you'll learn to "hunker" down in your faith in the midst of life's storms. When you do, you'll find better traction.

One of my favorite sentences in the entire book is, "Even God needs the help of two mountains to make a valley." My favorite moment and deepest revelation in the book was in Chapter 13 "Finding Life": It was a "Lite Brite" moment . . . one you won't soon forget. Don't buy this book for simply a good read . . . buy it because you want to live a life with meaning and purpose. Buy it because you want to grow your faith in God. Buy it because you NEED it.


*I was provided this book for free in exchange for my unbiased review through the Amazon Vine Program.
