Book Review: I Still Believe



I Still Believe

  • by Jeremy Camp, David Thomas (Contribution by)

Book Description: Christian recording artist Jeremy Camp has written songs that have touched millions of lives. His lyrics reveal a heart that’s been broken and a faith that has been tested and restored.

In I Still Believe, Jeremy shares, with unflinching candor and emotion, the extraordinary story behind his award-winning lyrics–from his impoverished childhood, rebellious teenage years, and spiritual awakening at Bible College, to the tragic loss of his first wife, Melissa, to cancer and the heart-wrenching spiritual journey that followed–a journey that reignited Jeremy’s faith, inspired some of his most beloved songs, and paved the way for a second chance at love with his second wife, Adrienne.

This memoir is a must-read for Jeremy Camp fans everywhere, and an inspiring, encouraging read for anyone who has ever experienced loss.

About the Author: Camp has been married twice. He and his first wife, Melissa Lynn Henning-Camp (born October 7, 1979), were married on October 21, 2000. She was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and died on February 5, 2001, when he was 23 and she was 21. Some of his early songs reflect the emotional ordeal of her illness. "I Still Believe" was the first song he wrote after her death. "Walk By Faith" was written during their honeymoon. In December of 2003, he married Adrienne Liesching, former front woman for The Benjamin Gate. They have two daughters: Isabella Rose Camp (born September 25, 2004) and Arianne Mae Camp (born April 5, 2006). Camp has scored fourteen #1 Christian music hits (six from his first album, Stay). His first single was "Understand." He has made eight music videos: "Understand," "Walk By Faith," "Take You Back," "Tonight" "Give You Glory," "Let It Fade," "I Am Willing,"a song which was not included on any of his albums and "Speaking Louder Than Before."

My Thoughts: “Even when I don’t see, I still believe.” Words from Jeremy Camp’s song I Still Believe. This sets the tone for his whole memoir. You read through his pain and struggle to find God in the dark times and you follow him through his joys. I found this book to be a great description of his testimony and story Gods grace working through Jeremy and touching lives all around the world.

You don’t have to be a fan or even know who Jeremy is to read and relate to this book, although I do urge you to take a listen to his music. I personally like his music and enjoyed reading his story.


I participate in Tyndale's review bloggers. I receive books for free from the publishing house to read and give thorough reviews of the work.

Cake flavors from Chapstick are a party on the go!


d525b03fb5f1785d5ef3bc55ba600586My new obsession is Chapstick. With this nasty long dry winter I need it. Maybe it’s a combo of the weather and pregnancy hormones but I cant go anywhere without layering Chapstick on my dry lips. In November I introduced you to the limited edition holiday flavors. I know the running joke is no one can ever finish a tube of Chapstick before they lose it and I admit that was me too but the apple cider flavor was amazing and I made sure to never lose that one! In fact I ended up going through the whole tube (there has to be an award for that right?) and then scoured Walgreens to stock up before they were gone.

54616_CS-Render-CakeBatter Stick copy-resized-254616_CS-Render-RedVelvet stick copy-resized-2_0Now Chapstick as gone and done it again. This preggo is craving cake thanks to Chapstick’s new limited edition cake flavors. YUMMMM! Who wouldn’t love Velvet Cupcake and Cake Batter!!!!  It’s like a birthday party on your lips! LOL! I *may* have to pry the cake batter one from my 5yr olds daughters hands on a daily basis or just go out and buy a new one for myself. Either way these flavors are a big hit my my home. My guys both big and small love the Velvet cupcake one, and I don’t blame them its heavenly.

221852_10151286517839821_180151547_nI love that Chapstick thought of everything. They even put “To/From” tags on the back of the packaging so that you can give it to someone special. You could use the limited edition Chapsticks as a tag for a gift. Sadly these new varieties are only going to be available until around March 31, 2013. They will be sold exclusively at Wal-mart, CVS and Walgreens nationwide. I plan on buying as many as I can when I come across them.
