This Book, God Has My Back, He Has Yours too is an accurate account of events in the writer’s life from about age ten, however she even recalled an occurrence at age three. I particularly like her emphasis on ‘remembering’ as there is virtue in looking at your past, in order to appreciate your present and chart your future. The writer often refers to God’s intervention in her life that pushes her to make changes. Her writing style is motivational so when you start reading, it is difficult to close the book until you reach the end. There is an aspect of suspense that keeps you wanting to hear more.
The author is honest and open with us even though she is careful in protecting confidentiality by the use on nom de plumes.
I appreciate the lay out of the Contents and the reference to the thirteen ‘Moves’ which emphasize the presence of the Holy Spirit in every situation. The Author is sharing her experiences, ever since her faith in Christ was established, and her dialogue with the Lord to convince the readers that the God who delivers, directs and provides for her is able to do the same for everyone who sincerely recognizes his/her need and ask for help.
‘God Has My Back, He Has Yours too’ is an easy read and provides questions or comments that can be used to strengthen our Devotional Life.
I strongly recommend this Book to Teenagers, Young Adults and Adults whose faith needs to be strengthened and who are facing challenges that seem insurmountable, because there is Hope in God!

I read this book in one night and I must say, I found it very inspiring, relatable, funny, sad, uplifting and many other emotions all in one. One thing I noticed, was that at the end of each chapter, the hand of God was seen in every situation, which makes you want to utter a simple "oh". This you will do when you realise why the author experienced certain things as illustrated in her memoirs.
I enjoyed reading this collection of experiences and would recommend it to anyone. Experience teaches wisdom. Jean has alot of wisdom wrapped neathly in 14,770 words.
My question to the author is: Jean, how you one have so much prayer partners? :)
