My Beautiful Dilemma by Florence Durrant

**I received a copy of this book in exchange for a review**

When I was a kid, one of my favorite parts of church was listening to popcorn testimony night. It was motivating to hear how people experienced growth in their spiritual life. Reading My Beautiful Dilemma reminded me of that. The author writes about her spiritual growth through the many trials she experienced. I have to say that I don’t know if I would do as great as she did. Her writing style enhanced this moving story.

There were several insightful takeaways from this story. Here are two of my favorites:

“Fear, therefore, is the reciprocal of faith. In the same way that faith will manifest the promise of God, fear enables the devil wreak havoc in your life.” “This thing called God is referred to by all religious people, and yet no religious book explains what God is.”

My Beautiful Dilemma is the autobiography of Florence Durrant, comprising of a series of letters and poems to family members and other figures important to her. Reflecting on love, loss, family and religion, Durrant gives a unique view of being both a highly spiritual woman and a staunch African socialist fiercely opposed to the tyrannical reign of Robert Mugabe
