Love Lifted Me by Sara Evans and Rachel Hauck



 Love Lifted Me is the third in the Songbird series by Sara Evans. I was excited to start reading this installment of Jade and Max’s adventures, mainly because Softly and Tenderly ended with such a cliff hanger. In this story, Jade and Max turn away from their pasts and towards a new life in Christ. Set in a small town in Texas, this story does a great job of expressing the fears and joys that are found when we let go of the old and take on the new. It’s a relatively quick read and a nice tidy ending for our journey with Jade and Max. I enjoyed the Texas high school football aspect of the story and having lived in Texas for a short while; found that Evans and Hauck captured the lifestyle very well. The story line of Max’s parents is brought up in the beginning of the book, but mostly ignored from that point, which felt a little glossed over. Overall, I would recommend the entire Songbird series for an emotional journey that shows one families circle from sin to redemption to acceptance and action.

  1. This was a story about losing fear and embracing trust. It was a story of redemption, perhaps the best possible theme a story can have. And it was about love. Love for others. Love for God. His love for us.
