Growth Lessons

 

Review of Growth Lessons by Naty Matos

 

Naty Matos says she has been through some tough times, but she doesn’t dwell on them in this work. She keeps a sweet, cheerful attitude, a lot like the gardener, while gently and persistently digging around our roots, aerating our soil, fertilizing our ground, and pruning our parts to get some growth going.

 

She knows better than anyone what it’s like to grow up “saved,” but to only become truly converted after many years of “do-it-yourself” Christianity. What a timely message for today this book is. Folksy, flowing, as good as a chat over tea. Here’s the heart of a fellow believer opened to us, begging us to open our hearts and examine our relationship with our God.

 

I can’t think of a real surprise to tease you with from this book, because it’s not so much new, as charmingly presented, drawing you along from subject to subject. It’s a project, a patchwork quilt Naty invites you to work on together with her. Plenty of Scripture gets mixed in with Naty’s own thoughts.

 

It’s a blog, as I understand it, a person’s scattered thoughts collected and shared, in a stream of consciousness style. Yet the author says she has a Masters Degree, so I have to say that there seems very little regard for traditional punctuation here, especially periods. She also says she grew up with other languages so I hope that is an explanation. I enjoyed the book and could recommend it wholeheartedly with that one proviso.
