The Return by Lacy Strum is an honest look at the author's journey to learning how to love God in her every day. Overall this book is very good and I appreciated her honesty and how she struggled through her journey to learn what God needed her to learn. The book is broken up into short sections where she tells a part of her story, journal entries, song lyrics or poems she wrote and a daily journal page. I appreciate her transparency and honestly but the format does not appeal to my analytical, linear brain and made it hard for me to follow. For those who are wired in a more artistic and non-linear way (like my wife) this book is sure to be a wonderful encouragement and something to be savored and mulled over.
