Kasey Van Norman has had her share of challenges, failures, and successes. She also had the courage to write about it. The result is her book, Named by God.

Overview of Named by God
Van Norman's book blends her autobiography with Christian counseling and practical self-help tips. The solution is a readable and helpful book, especially for Christians who face the types of challenges that Van Norman has experienced. The book's theme, Named by God, reminds believers that regardless of life's challenges, they remain named by God — a member of his family and under his care.

Thoughts on Named by God
Van Norman's book is full of plenty of helpful advice regardless of one's situation in life. Likely, many people have had thoughts or experiences similar to the author's. Thus, they would be able to profit from her openness and forthright counsel.

The book sprinkles in a modicum of biblical explanation and gospel reminders. The preponderance of folksy advice, "you can" language, and anecdotal "me too" content, may leave some readers still hungry for solid advice for change — built on the Bible and rooted in the gospel.
