Book Review: Undetected

Book Review Undetected
Dee Henderson
May 22, 2014

I hadn’t read a Dee Henderson book for several years. I eagerly anticipated this one and was not disappointed.

This author does an amazing job at developing her characters for her readers. They are relatable and likeable. They grow as the pages turn. This is particularly true of this book.

I lead a Bible study for the Widows Support Group at our church and I could definitely see reading this book together and discussing the process of dating and remarriage that Commander Mark Bishop goes through. But the struggle that Gina faces as she deals with her broken heart and then having to choose between two suitors would be healing and encouraging for anyone in the dating journey. This is a novel filled with valuable and usable lessons.

It is also a novel with some interesting science. I found myself wanting to learn more about the genius ideas that Gina was discovering. The way Mark encourages Gina to live into her gift is a message that could inspire many. I found it very encouraging that the “genius” was a woman, and that her area of expertise was science. I wish I could have found something like this when my daughters were younger to encourage them as they considered life careers.

The conversation that Mark has with Gina regarding contentedness is worth the price of the book.

The ending isn’t sad, but I was sad that it was ending. I highly recommend this book and am proud to have it on my shelf.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Day 12 Tenacious Life-shaping Thankfulnes

Day 12
I sat down to type this on my Nook Tablet, and I noticed that my phone was about to die so I had to stop and pull out my charger and attach it to the extension cord plugged into the power strip. As I walked back to the table I got a notification that one of my friends had just played in one of our Words With Friends games, which was followed by a notification that I just got a text from my daughter.

I sat back down at the table and smiled. While it may look like today’s thankatuity is for technology, which I am grateful for, sitting here I am awash in thanks that God wired us to be curious and creative and tenacious.

In a former job, I taught a class which had as its premise that there is genius in each of us. Now that’s not to say that we can expect to be budding Edisons or Einsteins, Jordans or Gretzkys, Jobs or Gates, but in your sphere of influence you are the expert on you. And God says he put you right where he wants you to make the difference and impact that only you can make.

So how will you change and shape your world for good and God?
