Nourish and Strengthen

Chloe Taylor lives with her family in Midland, Texas. She's got a great husband, 3 cute kids, a great calling in the Young Women presidency, and she's finally happy with her body. Her friends are always commenting on how great she looks, and she's proud to have the figure of a model. But Chloe quickly realizes how little that kind of thing matters when she becomes sick and can't get rid of her little cold. It seems as though she's always hungry, and a with a hacking cough that just won't go away, and a doctor that doesn't think there's anything to be worried about, but deep down Chloe knows that there's something more seriously wrong. It's after she's called as the new Primary President in her ward that her problems are finally diagnosed, she has type 1 adult onset diabetes just like her husband. That creates a whole new set of worries for their family. Will their children end up just like them, and is there anything that can be done to prevent it? Chloe has to learn to just have faith that Heavenly Father has a plan for her and her family, and she also needs to lean and help those around her learn that focusing on the outside of the body is not the best way for any of them to live their lives.

This was a cute book. I liked the story. I liked the characters. I liked the way that Chloe was able to grow through out the story. I liked also that the story showed how women really interact with each other. Sometimes we, like Chloe and her friends, get so caught up with how we look on the outside that we forget what's really important in our lives, our families, the Savior, and really being charitable. I hope that I can take Chloe's lesson into my life and learn to not be so caught up in what really doesn't or shouldn't matter.

I grabbed this one when it was free from Amazon.
