Why God Matters [e-book review]

I asked to review this book. Sometimes I struggle with my faith. My hubby does alot.
Why do things happen the way they do?
What did he/me/we do so wrong to be "punished" as we always term it.
I know we are not being punished but are supposed to be learning a lesson of some kind. Sometimes it just takes us a really long time to understand that lesson fully.

After reading this e-book, some things really stand our for me.
Hubby says (and i agree) that sometimes I martyr myself.
I will suffer so someone else, either family or friend, can have what they need or want, despite my own feelings or convictions.
It's a bad ~habit~, but it's who I am.

This book really touches so many aspects, so many different areas of faith.
I love the scriptures and Life Lessons at the end of each chapter.

The book is relatively short, only 114 pages front to back, but very powerful.
Also, this book won the 2011 Christian Small Publisher Book of the Year.

About the Authors
 Karina Lumbert Fabian Bio:
Karina Lumbert Fabian was born into the Catholic faith, but truly grew to love it as an adult. As a busy mother of four, she finds some of her strongest encounters with God's love happen in the ordinary events of the day-to-day. Karina started her writing career with diocesan newspapers but has settled into writing fun-filled fantasy and science fiction that nonetheless incorporates the principles of faith-filled living.

Deacon Steven Lumbert officially converted to Catholicism in 1988, but had been a "practicing" Catholic long before that. He met his lovely and loving wife, Socorro, while serving in Roosevelt Roads Naval Base in Puerto Rico, in 1966. They raised their daughters, Karina and Regina, in the faith. Steve spent 30 years as a Colorado State Trooper, but retired when God called him to the diaconate. Currently, he serves the Diocese of Pueblo as the Associate Director of Deacon Formation.
