Review + giveaway for "I Dare You" by Isabella Morganthal

Today I am so excited to share with you a review on Isabella Morganthal's book "I Dare You" (yes dear readers, there will be a giveaway as well lol).

I was very grateful that she let me review her book!!

I heard about it from my dear friend Chloe and from Rhey. And after I learned that it was on stopping human trafficking, I knew it was something that I wanted to review.

I absolutely love this book!  I'm a big fan of "Do Hard Things" and "Start Here" by Alex and Brett Harris, so when Isabella presented her readers with challenges, I fell in love with the book even more!

Isabella does an amazing job presenting the importance of becoming aware whether something is fair trade or not, doing your part in not supporting companies who aren't, etc.
Her book is overflowing with Scripture and wisdom - I was very impressed.  It's not everyday you read a book written by a young person and have it overflowing with knowledge, Scripture, wisdom, and much more.

Her book is described as this (taken from the back of the book):
Bullying. Homelessness. Abortion. Human trafficking. It doesn't take much searching to discover that there are a lot of things wrong in our world today. What could one person possibly do about all these issues? In I Dare You, Isabella Morganthal dares you to step out and make a difference in the world for Jesus Christ. She helps you dig deep and discover your passion, while encouraging you to do something about it. This is a dare to give everything you have to Jesus and watch Him do amazing things with your life. This is a dare to make your life count. This is a dare to change your world.

I encourage everyone to get their hands on this book, and allow God to speak to you through this wonderful book.

  1. I know Isabella personally, and her sweet spirit and heart for Jesus is *such* a blessing to me. :) And her book is _incredible_ - I wish I could give it to everyone I know!
    I don't remember when I first heard of human trafficking (I *think* it was from my Mom), but I do know that Bella has opened my eyes to so much more of this horrendous crime, which needs to be ended.
    Thanks for hosting this giveaway, Alisha and Bella! :D

    I'd heard the words human trafficking on a few occasions, but I think my younger sister, Beth, really spelled it out for me.

  5. I commented on Isabella's blog about the interview of author Mckenzie Morganthau.

  6. I found out about trafficking on a special on television.

  7. Eee! Sooo excited to see this book here! :D You needn't enter me as I already have a copy (her twin is my bestie!), but just wanted to share my excitement over this incredible book!

  8. Oh and speaking of her twin, MacKenzie Morganthal has also written a book involving human-trafficking, only it's fiction. Just in case you didn't know already. :D

  9. Thank you so much for doing this book review and giveaway of my book, Alisha! Thank you also for the kind words about my book! :) May God bless you!

  10. I know Isabella (hey there Bella if you read this!!) and I do already have her book, but I would love to have another copy to share with a friend if possible! I knew that human trafficking existed from I don't know when, but I didn't know much about it at all until I read an article Bella wrote on it. So, Bella is how I mainly found out.
    I have commented several times on Bella's blog, but I commented today on her Make It Count post!
