Fun to read; Heart-encouraging to digest!
Carole Williamson June 1, 2017
“What a delightful book to read! Written from the perspective of a mother and her daughter with a 40 year age difference. Written to encourage and inspire and it does just that! Full of graphics with quotes that are so amazing! Check this one out in the chapter on inspiring us to try something new: “Don’t be afraid to try something new. Amateurs built the Ark. Professionals built the Titanic”. And another by a favorite author Corrie Ten Boom: ” When a train goes through a tunnel and it gets dark, you don’t throw away the ticket and jump off. You sit still and trust the engineer.” There are 3 different “voices” in the book: Mother Linda: Experienced Heart; Daughter Chloe: Expectant Heart; and God: Eternal Heart. This is a book to savor for yourself and then pass along copies to those you love.”

‘Real and True: Hope for the Restless Heart by Chloe and Linda Grabeman uses a fresh and captivating approach to our daily walk with Christ. With refreshing honesty, creativity and experience, this mother-daughter team has written a wonderfully assuring and inspirational book for all ages. It is a great book to read alongside your “twenty-something” child so buy them one, too! There are great graphics, song lists and most importantly, Biblically sound doses of hope on every page. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it!”
I definitely recommend it! It would make a great devotional.

“This is a truly delightful book! Real and True is written in a warm and welcoming style, told from the perspective of three voices – the experienced, the expectant, and the eternal. The most significant aspect to these voices – that of a mother, her daughter, and our eternal Father – is that their words are authentic. The Grabemans communicate in a way that is relatable and readable, while simultaneously conveying profound depth. There is something here for everyone needing encouragement (and who doesn’t need encouragement?). This book is chock full of graphics, quotes, and even song lists. I definitely recommend it! It would make a great devotional, worthy of being ingested slowly.”

“I felt as if Linda and Chloe had been reading my mind and my heart as I read chapter after chapter. Written with soul-baring honesty, they captured my questions, my pain, and my longings. Their two voices from different perspectives and generations present the same answer to each question and longing: to know Him Who created us and loves us with a relentless passion. And His voice seals each chapter – how better to know and become involved with Someone than to know, from Him, what He thinks?
Their words from their experiences, God’s words to us, the graphics, and the playlists make this a book that truly has something for everyone, whether you are a type of visual or auditory learner.”
