Need You Now: A Story of Hope
by Plumb with Susanna Foth Aughtmon

Christian music artist, Plumb (AKA Tiffany), tells us that her book, Need You Now, is a story of hope, and it is.  Her memoir is a quick and easy read with stories from her childhood, her rise in Christian music, her love story, her marriage struggles and how God restored her marriage.  She’s totally real, totally vulnerable and totally honest.  I loved hearing her heart about sharing her music and her love for Jesus and her family.

I particularly loved how she trusts God with the future.  She tends to look at life events as: Well, if that works out–awesome!  If it doesn’t, on to something new. It’s a perspective that breathes hope into every part of her story.

She also reminds me of God’s sovereignty.  There’s no need to try to push and shove, fight and claw your way to the top of any mountain or the forefront of anyone’s attention. She just did her thing.  She sang as a kid in churches.  When presented with the next opportunity, she just gave it her best.  God opened every door.  He directed her path and the people she needed to meet.  Even in the hard things and the ‘setbacks,’ God was at work growing her as an artist and helping her love Him above all else.

Those interested in Plumb as a musician will love getting to know her better.  Couples looking for hope in broken marriages will be blessed and encouraged and young moms overwhelmed by diaper changing duty will find a friend!

    Plumb was in St Louis last evening for a concert to celebrate the 14th birthday of the local Christian radio station and this morning she was on the station being interviewed and she spoke of this book. I have it on my list of “I want to read this” books now.
