#collaboreads: A Brand New Book

September 26, 2017

The brand new book I chose to read this month is called Seek This Jesus by Neill Marriott. The cover surely caught my attention and I knew I had to read it for myself.

It’s phenomenal. It’s absolutely amazing! Neill shares so much of her life in this book. She shares the life she had while attending a Methodist church in the south, to feeling forgotten by God, to joining The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons). I just am in awe at her journey!

My favorite part of the book are pages 69 – 73. She shares the story of her daughter who passed away from getting hit by a car. But it’s the way she talks about staying connected to God, grieving and what each year felt like when it came to connecting with God and grieving her loss.

I think it left an impression on me, obviously because my dad passed away and I’m still grieving so bad. But I don’t think I’ve ever had someone describe grieving the way she does in those pages. The transitions and how each year passing is different but she grew closer to God each year.

I am just certain that everyone needs to own this book. I wouldn’t necessarily say anybody who isn’t LDS wouldn’t enjoy it, but it is centered around God, and Jesus Christ. Their love for us and a woman’s story. I give it 5 stars!
