Review: 8 Reasons Your Life Matters by John Herrick


"If I were to disappear, would anybody notice?" 

Each of us has asked that question in dark, honest moments. 

In his first nonfiction book, 8 REASONS YOUR LIFE MATTERS, bestselling author John Herrick combines personal struggles with biblical insight. Injecting eight chapters with humor, memoir moments, and a postmodern perspective on life, Herrick shares eight reasons your life matters: 

  1. Your Life is More Permanent than Your Struggles
  2. God Sees You Differently than You See Yourself
  3. You Have a Destiny
  4. You are Remembered, not Forgotten
  5. You Were Someone’s First Pick
  6. Your Absence Would Leave a Permanent Hole
  7. People Need to See You Overcome
  8. You are Loved and Valued 
Eight solid reasons to give life one more chance. Eight reasons your life matters.

As a Christian and a lover of words, I find this book to be supremely inspirational. John Herrick is an author I share much in common with, especially the desire to tell good stories that come from a place of my own personal faith while also making sure to keep the story as realistic as possible so that it could touch anyone of any faith or opinion.

I am really looking forward to reading several of Herrick's fiction books I have missed out on so far, but I am very happy to have my own copy of this book because it, again, is a wonderful Christian testimony that, at least to me, does not feel in any way preachy or harmful. He is speaking from a place of his dreams and aspirations through the lens of his worldview, which is what I feel like most people do.

This book has been truly a godsend for me with recent struggles in my life, so I am really thankful that this book is out there.
