Love Where You Live by Shauna Pilgreen

Shauna Pilgreen and her family know how to "live sent." What this means is that they know how to serve God in the place where He has sent them. Throughout moves and changes, Shauna and her family learned to adjust and adapt and let God lead the way. Shauna shares that everyone can have this outlook on life. You might not always be in your comfort zone, but you can rejoice in knowing that you are serving God to the best of your ability.

Shauna's message in this book is an important one. Her viewpoint on life and the people that God puts in her path is very admirable. I love her transparency and how she openly shares that though she may not be in the place that she specifically wants to be, she is in the place where God wants her to be. That self-sacrifice is something we all should strive for. I also loved her stories about her neighbors and how she embraced her new community in California. She tells her readers to not wait to be welcomed. Be the welcome that God wants you to be.

While I loved the message that this book offered, I wasn't completely sold on the writing style. I felt like the book was disjointed and all over the place at times. I had trouble with keeping up with whose story was whose. I think this book could have actually been condensed and divided into more than one book. It would be interesting to read about the people in Shauna's life in a more simplified style. However, I did appreciate the section at the end that provided an update on a lot of the people in this book.

Thank you to Revell for the chance to read and review this book!
