Michelle and Sara both have found a jar in the garage that ends up having meaning for them both. There are Bible verses in the jar and also quotes. The messages in the jar made them think about how they applied the verses or quotes to their lives. Will Sara decide to accept the Christian life and all it means for her day to day life? Will Michelle decide to be Amish? The book teaches the importance of forgiveness for each of the characters. It also tells the reader to think about their life and who they need to forgive. It is a very meaningful and personal book.. The characters are real, personable and desire to live a life of integrity. What will become of Sara's relationship with Brad? What will be come of Ezekiel's relationship with Michelle? Thank you to the publisher and netgalley for allowing me to read and review this wonderful book.
