I hate getting sick. Like, really. I, am a clean freak, and not the type that has to have everything organized and swept. I'm a clean freak as in, I'm anti germs. Along with my war with bugs, I am also in a war with germs. Over all else, I have a phobia of stomach bugs (the ultimate enemy! Germs/sickness + a bug. They've joined forces!). Now, thankfully, I don't, personally have any really bad life changing sickness, but the point is, sicknesses are a part of life - and sadly many get sick in a life changing way. And when that happens, well... To put it simply, life gets hard, it gets scary, sometimes it even feels hopeless - that's why I'm so thankful for the chance to tell y'all about a book called "He's Making Diamonds".
Are you a teenager trying to navigate faith through chronic illness? I’m here to tell you, you are not alone.
When sickness takes over your life, it’s a never-ending battle to make it through each day. How do you cope? How do you keep fighting? Most of all though, how do you find God in the midst of the suffering?
Through my own journey of sickness, I’ve struggled with the same questions—questions we all think but are afraid to ask. My name is Sara, and I’ve been sick with Lyme disease and more since I was fourteen.
Those questions you’re afraid to ask? I’ve asked them too—as have many others.
This book addresses topics and questions such as:
The journey of illness is not an easy one, but hope remains. God hasn’t left us. He hasn’t forgotten us. On the contrary, He’s making diamonds out of us.

AAAND NOW *DRUM ROLE* THE REVIEW!
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
He's Making Diamonds is about being sick, it's about the inner battles and heartaches many face, it's about trials, and your relationship with God.
It's about being made into a diamond.
The writing is natural and sounds like the author is actually sitting down with you in person and talking with you. There are so many powerful Bible verses in this book and so many great examples - I loved it! I highly recommend it - and not just to people who suffer from a sickness. I think this is a good book for people without a chronic-illness to read because many of the questions and their answers can be helpful to know - and also overall, this book is a great source of strength and encourages the reader to endeavor a closer relationship with God.
Whoever you are, whatever your situation may be - go get He's Making Diamonds! It is a read you won't want to miss out on!
