Chocolate-Covered Cashews Book Review

First of all, I love Chocolate-Covered Cashews, what a great title for those that love chocolate!  This book is not about chocolate though, it's about family and how people can find each other after so many years of not knowing they even existed.  This book by Wiley Baxter is his story of how he found out he had family after he bought a bag of Chocolate-Covered Cashews.  The book was provided to me from Booksneeze and I really enjoyed learning how this families secret was revealed.

Wiley Baxter was 57-years-old when God brought a surprise to him. Over the next four days, it was revealed to him that he was the biological father of identical twin daughters and four grandchildren, which resulted from a two-year marriage he had 36 years before. Overjoyed and overwhelmed, he began a new chapter in his life.

Here are my highlights from the book...

Here's a question for you.  Have you ever had a once-in-a-lifetime experience that totally changed your idea of how you would live your life from that point on-an experience that you wanted to share with everybody?

God has tried to reach me in many ways, by placing others in my path to encourage me to examine my heart.

My wish is to share with you one of the greatest blessings of my life.

Sometimes we need to fall to learn, even though we don't see it that way at the time.

Recognize the postivie input of loved ones in your life, let the people know we appreciate them.

"Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made know unto God" (Phil. 4:6).

One thing God does is fill our hearts with love, and there is plenty of love to go around.

The book includes two other family members that share their personal stories.  Overall, I enjoyed the story and was able to share the exciting news about this families special connections with my friends and family.  
Book Rating 4 Stars

Do you have an exciting family story to share or a great book you recently read?  I'd love to hear about it.  Leave me a comment with a link to your blog or the book you recommend!
