5 things from COVID Diaries: Christian Short Fiction Stories

I loved the evangelistic theme spread throughout! What a neat collection of stories!

These are all short and easy to read stories that take place during this current time that our world is facing together. The one common theme throughout each story is the hope and belief in a loving God. I had never read any books by these authors and each story had it's own unique story and characters. I had no preference of one over the other, but I did find them uplifting - (especially in an environment where I don't do much other than get up and make it through another day until some type of cure or vaccine is developed or we get a national mandate of security because I am in the highest risk group)

I received an ARC copy of this book, but this is my voluntary and honest review with my own personal opinions.

This is a neat collection of stories!! By far my favorite story is Love in Lockdown by Joy Copeland. This one was great! Thanks to a "wrong" number, Grant reconnects with his high school love, Riley. Now, nothing, not her anxiety, not corona virus, can keep them apart! There's no shame for a Christian needing to take medication for anxiety, and this story puts that into perspective. I have friends that deal with anxiety, and I'll be recommending this to book to them!

This book includes four delightful and heart-warming stories to help while away the time in isolation or fill in a cosy afternoon’s reading. While all are written in a unique way, and all highlight the challenges of living through the restrictions of a Pandemic, there are some unexpected twists and pleasant surprises along the way. A pleasant read.
