Book Review - I Just Can't Take it Anymore
Can a small, slim book change your life? This one can! Pairing hilarious photos of children with beautifully simple words, I Just Can't Take It Anymore will cheer up even the most discouraged people. In a lighthearted yet profound way, Anthony DeStefano, author of the bestseller, A Travel Guide to Heaven, conveys the essence of the Judeo-Christian teaching on suffering, all the while making readers laugh out loud and sigh "Aww."
At once straightforward and funny and yet deeply moving, the book depicts challenges we all face: “Messy” lives, feelings of loss, abandonment, frustration, and despair. Then, step by step, DeStefano gently nudges readers into seeing the whole picture—life with all its beauties, joys, challenges and pleasures.
“Sometimes people just need to be reminded that there are always things to be grateful for. No one ever has to suffer alone,” said DeStefano, a best-selling author whose previous books include Ten Prayers God Always Says Yes To, The Invisible World, and two award-winning children’s books, This Little Prayer of Mine and Little Star.
If you know anyone who can use some encouraging words or needs a reason to smile, I Just Can’t
Take It Anymore! offers plenty of both.

My Take on the Book
Anthony DeStefano has written a brilliant book that will help you to identify with everyone in the human race and to help you not to feel alone in your challenges.He is relaying to the reader the message of hope and encouragement.He does this through faith and trust in God.
The expressive photographs of children in various situations is accompanied by truthful, lighthearted, and encouraging text.His message is clear. We need not despair when our faith is placed in God's plan for our life.
There are so many favorite pages , but I would like to share two: One is a photograph of a young child with binoculars looking up at the sky. The text reads "sometimes I wonder if God is really up there~ even worse ~ if He just does not care."
Another photo shows a little girl with a very sour expression on her face. Her friend is a chimpanzee who has his arm around her. The text reads "I seem to make a habit out of getting involved in the wrong relationships." The children's expressions and situations in the photographs lend to "smile factor" but do not deter from the message of hope and love of our God.
Do you have someone in your life who is facing some challenges and needs to have some laughter and encouragement in their life? If so this little book could be just the inspirational gift you could give which could lift their spirits and remind them that God loves them and is in their life.
