Book Review |Say All The Unspoken Thing
Title: Say All the Unspoken Things by John Sowers.
Genres: nonfiction, Christian
Publisher: Thomas Nelson (Feb. 1st., 2022)
From the author: “Many of us go through life with words and feelings stranded in our hearts. Words we deeply feel but never say. Sometimes we never have the chance. We don’t always get to say goodbye. We don’t always know when will be our last hug, high five, smile, laugh or ‘I love you.’ All we have is today, now, and what we do in this one, shining moment.”
Say All the Unspoken Things is about living, speaking and loving from our deep hearts. Written as personal letters from a father to his daughters, it covers topics such as: bravery, wonder, beauty, kindness, romance, and God’s patient love. This book will help us find our stranded words, speak more freely and move away from a distracted and shallow life.

Say All The Unspoken Things by John Sowers is such a sweet and reflective book. It’s a compilation of letters from the author to his three young daughters that he wrote in the beginning of the pandemic in 2020. It covers a wide range of topics such as love, family, friendship, religion, and wonder. Each page is filled with so much love and wisdom.
From the conversational writing style to the wisdom only someone who has truly lived and loved could have, there is something to be appreciated on each page. This is a book that I think could benefit people of all ages.
I admit, I found myself skimming through some of the basic information that was presented in this book. However, I grew up in a Christian home and even went to a Christian university, so I am very familiar with the basic bible stories. I will say, though, I love how everything was presented in a clear, easy to understand way. First and foremost, the author wrote this book to his children and that is so evident. So, while I didn’t always need to know all the information he presented, I think those who are younger, or new to the faith will really enjoy it and realize just how relatable the Bible is.
Overall, this was a loving and gentle book. Reading it was really quite cathartic.
