After Joy Ohagwu

When you've lost everything, that's when you trust God fully. What happens after you say yes to Jesus?

JB Patrickson was doing well for himself until the housing market collapse in 2008. Later, his grandma asks him to come take over her farm, in Maryland, because she is going to a senior care facility. He hadn't been there in 15 years for his 18th birthday. He sees the video of Candace Rodriguez' downfall and feels God urging him to pray for her. Why would God ask him to do that? He doesn't know her, has never met her.

I loved this story by Joy Ohagwu. God's love and peace are interwoven throughout this story of living your life for God. Step out in faith and follow God today. See where it will lead.

I received a free copy of this story in exchange for an honest review.


  1. Thanks Sally! I stumbled upon your blog searching for new book suggestions. This is great. I really appreciate the suggestion! Your review has swayed me. I’ll have to check out After.

    I wanted to pass along one my pastor recommended to me. It’s the #1 bestseller on religious fiction, so maybe you’ve already heard of it. But I can’t stop thinking about. It’s a fantastic collection of short stories. It’s called Pieces Like Pottery. I really can’t recommend it enough. I would love to see your review of it at some point!

    1. Hey! Thanks for stopping by! I hadn't heard of this book, but I will check it out and do a review. Thanks for suggesting it!

    2. Of course Sally! Thank you for your review. I enjoyed it. I'll definitely be checking back again. And I really would check out that book. I may read a few of the stories again today. They were that good. Can't wait for the review!
