Book Review - Own It!
About the Book
The movie Grace Unplugged tells the story of Grace Trey, an ideal Christian teenager who is also a phenomenal singer. But when she is pushed into the “real world” at the tender age of eighteen after getting the music break of a lifetime, her faith is put to the test.
Own It mirrors the film by asking what it means to really “own” your personal faith rather than just automatically following in the footsteps of parents, friends, or other influencers. Best-selling authors Hayley and Michael DiMarco help readers understand what to do when faith meets real world challenges.
Without solid beliefs, poor choices are likely to follow. You must take the time to really know who you are, who you are becoming, and who God made you to be. It's your personal faith . . . own it!

My Take on the Book
This was a great book that makes you stand up for the faith that you have and understand why you have it and where it came from. Once you understand this it makes you step forward and do what you need to do to make sure that you really are living the life that you should be living and not just going through the motions. The book allows you to question and understand what motivates you and your faith and helps you to better know how you can be the Christian God wants you to be.
This book truly makes you think deeply about what you are doing or can do to own your faith. It is a powerful book that will grip you and compel you to read even more with each page that turns.
