The Return by Lacey Sturm

The Return is a collection of "Reflections on Loving God Back" written by Lacey Sturm. This book is a look into the deepest parts of Lacey's life. This is basically a printing of writings from her journal so it is very personal and poetic. She has a unique way of journaling every day and she shares her outline in this book. Each journal entry includes Scriptures, prayers, song ideas, recipes, and to-do lists. Lacey shares specific details about her day to day life and struggles and the ways God is working on her heart.

While I admire Lacey's heart and artistic abilities, I felt like this book was so deeply personal that it would be better to keep private. I almost felt like I was intruding on her life by reading her journal. The journal entries didn't really seem to fit together as a whole, so the thoughts were random and disconnected. I just wasn't able to really connect to the style of this book. However, I do think that readers who enjoy a more poetic style will probably enjoy this book. Nevertheless, Lacey is very talented and has a wonderful heart for Jesus. Thank you so much to Lacey and the publisher for the chance to read and review this book!
