I loved this book. One of my favorite recent reads - while some of the stories/essays definitely read for what they are - pieces from an aspiring writer's body of student work they were still the work of a talented and promising writer. I enjoyed the ...more

It was a decent, easy read. I liked the beginning of the book but I never really felt invested in the main characters and so I just wasn't super invested in their problems either. I actually found myself liking the auxiliary characters much more.

“It is the story that we allow a Creator to write in our suffering that gives us the greatest opportunity to know the depths of His love, and in this way share that love with others.”
Kayla Aimee, Anchored: Finding Hope in the Unexpected

“I have rarely seen my husband angry. I boil over and blurt things out and generally find myself issuing apologies fairly frequently in our marriage. Jeff, though, is the embodiment of being slow to anger. The exception to this is if he is watching ESPN. Apparently there are a bunch of athletes out there that need to “learn how to play a kid’s game” or something. The whole thing is quite frustrating for him, which is understandable since he sees himself as some sort of father figure to the players. I mean, that is what I am assuming based on the fact that he spends a lot of time yelling, “COME ON, SON!” at our television.”
Kayla Aimee, Anchored: Finding Hope in the Unexpected

“Believing in God is as much like falling in love as it is making a decision. Love is both something that happens to you and something you decide upon.”
