Troy Schmidt brought laughter to the hearts of my children in this light-hearted spin on one of their favorite Bible characters. It has humor, it has attitude…and a special lesson about obedience.
I asked Brett, my 9 year old, to review Hey God, I’ve Got Some guy Named Jonah in My Stomach and I Think I’m Gonna Throw Up! “It was so funny, I mean seriously, it was so funny.” That’s all I got from him but I had to agree.
It was a perfect time for a review from us because we’ve been studying creation and obedience. Don’t miss this giveaway, you certainly want to hear the whale tell his side of the story.

What I like about this book now at 30 something is that it’s a practical guide of some ways I can guide my own children so they will know these bits of wisdom so they won’t have to wing it because I failed to teach them. It’s such a quick, to the point read, I’m sure my almost 11 year old should put it on his reading list.
Dennis Trittin packs the pages of his book, What I Wish I knew at 18, with many valuable life lessons. He covers general life topics as well as specific situations such as college transition, career management, marriage and handling adversity.
Trittin encourages the reader to discover their purpose & inspiration, to build a legacy with their life and to live with no regrets. In striving to live with “no regrets” we must also have character, serve others and stand up for our beliefs, values and convictions.
Our character will be what plays into the relationships we need to build and the author questions what the reader holds as his/her priority values. ”Do we value relationships over things?” He encourages us to steer clear of destructible people and to learn how to communicate with others to build healthy, lasting relationships.
Spiritually related questions are posed and the reader is encouraged to invest in their personal spiritual growth, to seek God’s wisdom and to count blessings. Of course life will bring adversity and this covers how we should accept adversity as part of life but handle it in a good, healthy way.
Setting goals, using time wisely and making decisions are all traits that we need much practice in. Thankfully, all these are covered as well. There’s so much more practical wisdom to glean from the pages of this book than I’ve mentioned here. It’s definitely worth your time to read and worth your time to snag a copy for all those high school graduates next month!
I’m giving away a copy so be sure and enter to win!
