Passport Through Darkness by Kimberly Smith

Book Description:

Passport to Darkness takes readers on Smith's journey to the deserts of Africa and the deserts of her own soul as she tries to live well as an imperfect American mom, crusade for justice for orphans around the world, and embrace God's extraordinary dreams for her. When Kimberly and her husband risk everything to answer God's call, they see God change and restore them--even amid exhaustion, marital struggles, and physical limitations. This heartbreaking, heartlifting book is for anyone who longs to see God's redemptive power heal broken hearts, fill empty bellies, and shelter uncovered heads. It is a call to readers to take one more step on their journey to know God's heart. It is a guide from one ordinary person to another to finding a life that matters.

My Thoughts:

Wow! I was so not prepared for this book. I knew from the description this book would be 'heavy' but I didn't expect it to be an emotional roller coaster. I won't give away much, you can read the description above, just know if you read this book, your life will be changed. Kimberly is an amazing woman and her husband, Milton an amazing man. This book shows love (most especially God's love), fear, courage, and so much more! It shows how God can use two ordinary people who are willing to open themselves up to His will and the struggles they endure to accomplish God's will. Truly inspiring.

I rate this a 5/5. Though it will be a while before I read it again, it will stay on my shelf.

Thank you to the B&B Media Group for the review copy of this book. I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
