Anchored by Kayla Aimee (book review & GIVEAWAY)

Kayla Aimee brings laughter to the scary story of her daughter being born (after years of trying to have a baby) at 25 weeks. I am writing this at almost 34 weeks and cannot even imagine my baby being born today let alone almost 10 weeks ago! Reading "Anchored: finding hope in the unexpected" by Kayla Aimee really was a great read while on this pregnancy journey of my own.

 As Aimee and her husband struggled with the NICU stay of their daughter, Aimee's faith was really shaken. I just love her honesty in this book. I felt like she was my friend, telling me her story. Her story of fear, love, surrender. It's so beautiful. And funny. Strange, right? But she weaves this humor (and not dark humor) into the story in such an authentic way.

I was just entranced with this story. Hearing about the procedures this poor baby went through, the sweet nurses that worked with her, the way God was with them through it all. Just really an incredible story with such an amazing ending: her Scarlette lives. I don't mind sharing that with you because if you just read the author's bio info, then you'd know that.

At the end of the book, Aimee shares that while she thought she was just telling her daughter's incredible story until she realized that God had changed her through all of this. Scarlette's story is really Kayla's story, too.
