God Wants You to Shine by Stephanie Moore Perry

Life has just begun to look up for Faith Thomas after all the problems she and her family have faced the past year. Faith thought that the New Year would be bliss and that nothing more could possibly go wrong, especially when she lives for God and is going into year nine. Her parents are back on the right track and her family was getting along just fine. But God wants her to face new lessons and they aren’t always easy ones to learn.

Things start to go haywire, her friends start having problems and issues and they start to slowly drift away. When her mum needs Faith to help her modelling agency, Faith’s confidence starts to go down hill and quickly.

During all of the dramas going on there are other little things that add to all of the stress that she has in her life, school grades, boys, cheerleading and some hidden talents.

The Faith Thomas series are well written and after reading the first book I was not sure whether the sequel would as good, but as I started reading God wants you to shine I thought that it if anything it may be even better. Stephanie Perry Moore is a relatively new author to me and is one of the best I know.

I love Faith’s character and the way that she manages to get through all of the difficulties that come her way and that she always relies on God to help her. She is just like a normal teenager that you would see passing you on the street, facing the same things and learning how to cope and to move on.

God wants us to use are gifts for a good purpose and to always honour up to Him, like when Faith sings at the concert with her dad. She is singing for Him and helping everyone to see why she loves Him so much. ‘God Wants You to Shine’ is a perfect title for the book because that is exactly what He wants us to do, He wants us to shine in everything we do even the little things like school work. He wants us to do our best and to do it for Him in everything.
