WIN “Chasing God” by Angie Smith!!!

Welcome to JoJo’s Corner.

I’m so excited for today’s book review.
Do you ever pray and feel like your words
aren’t getting higher than the ceiling?
Are you always studying the Bible,
but just not “getting” it?
Have you ever just felt burnt out
in your relationship with God?
Well, you’re not alone!
Keep reading for a chance to win a new release
from a cool Christian gal
who’s been there, done that!

written by



Angie Smith is the wife of Todd Smith (lead singer of Dove Award winning group Selah), author of I Will Carry You, What Women Fear, and Mended. She is one of the most popular speakers and blog writers in the country. She holds a Master’s degree in Developmental Psychology from Vanderbilt University and lives with her husband and daughters in Nashville, TN.


Maybe you’ve never asked the question out loud, but you’ve wondered. You do the things that look good on paper: read your Bible, pray, attend study groups and go to church on Sundays.

But you aren’t convinced you really know Him.

Angie Smith understands, because she had run circles around the same paths searching for Him, frustrated at her lack of progress. And she probably would have continued to do so had it not been for one realization that changed everything.

She wasn’t following God; she was trying to catch up with Him.

And without realizing it, you may be as well.

It’s a distinction that affects every aspect of our lives with Christ, and it begins with learning where we’ve relied more on man’s explanation of God than God Himself.

So many requirements, so many rules, and so much guilt where there is supposed to be freedom. It’s the reason you wonder if you’ve measured up, and the nagging voice that tells you you’re a failure as a Christian.

Three simple words changed everything for Angie, and she believes they can do the same for you.

Stop chasing God.



I am so glad that Angie is tackling a topic that a lot of us are embarrassed to admit to.
Her open honesty is so refreshing and inspiring and just let’s readers know that they are not alone.
A lot of times, we think we have this whole Christianity/God-thing figured out…well we don’t.
This book is about our journey to knowing God in a deeper, less stress-ful, less us-driven way.
For anyone who is stressed-out, dried-out, or needs a time-out…CHASING GOD is a great start to finding those streams of refreshment, rest and peace with God.

  1. Thank you for your review JoJo, I always love reading them.. I would love to win a copy of this book, My life has been so stressed lately and I have found myself asking those same questions and feeling the same way, this book is something that both me and my husband could benefit from.

  2. Hey Jojo! Love your review and love everything about this book! As a college student there are so many difficult times and times of “chasing” after a life I believe I should be following. If anything I think this book could only help me benefit even more in my faith as I mature more into my life and where God wants me. Regardless, I am definitely going to check this book out even if I don’t win. : ) Thanks for the opportunity though!

    1. Hi Taylor! Thanks so much for stopping by the blog and entering the giveaway! I think we always find more happiness in life when we are seeking Gods plan for our lives instead of our own plans:) be sure to check back Saturday, when I announce the winner!
