Book Review on The Christmas Sweater

I know I’m a little late, but to keep the last trace of the Christmas spirit, I had to finish The Christmas Sweater by Glenn Beck. Now I’ll be the first to say that I’m not his biggest fan, but because I had a few moments of boredom during break and because his book was sitting by itself in my house, I decided to pick it up and give it a go.  And even though I may not necessarily agree with his staunch political opinions, I do admire his will to overcome his personal addictions. His book is an excellent reminder that we can all have second chances and that there is always hope.
I actually loved this book. It was touching, perplexing, and comforting all at once. I highly encourage you to read it—despite your political or religious views. The core message of the story is timeless and unbiased: that we should love each other fully. You never know what tomorrow may bring.
Beck writes, “I wonder sometimes how many of us don’t face ourselves because we are convinced that we’re worthy of only a certain level of happiness. We are limited by our imaginations and thoughts of worthiness and joy. We become comfortable in our misery because it is all we know.”
I hope in this New Year you realize that you are deserving of the ultimate joy. You are worthy of happiness every day if you allow yourself to have it. Here’s to a happy new year now and all throughout it!
Keep shining,
The Sunny Girl, Lauren Cook
