We all experience times of hiddenness, when our potential is unseen and our abilities remain unapplauded. This book will encourage you to not rush through those times by reminding you that, though we often want to hasten through these anonymous seasons of the soul, these times hold enormous power to cultivate character traits that cannot be developed any other way! Whether you are: A college freshman A transplanted professional A new parent Widowed Retired, Or going through a season in which you feel your contributions are going unnoticed, Personal hiddenness prepares us for true spiritual greatness.

Once in a while I find a book that cuts right to the quick, for various reasons. In fiction, these are stories that are tight and succeed on every level, real literary masterpieces. In nonfiction, these are books that are me, my life and my issues, that make me feel like the author was writing directly to me. This book was one of the latter.

Chole is a Christian, and she is writing about those times in life when we feel undervalued or unappreciated. She makes a corollary with Jesus' life, and the fact that Jesus spent so much of his time overlooked by the world around him before His ministry began. Even though I technically knew this, I never really considered before how little of Jesus' history is recorded. Most of the Bible focuses on just a few years of his life, the last few, with only a smattering of childhood stories given beforehand. All that time that goes unrecorded is what she refers to as the hidden years, and if Jesus benefited from them, we will, too.

The format of the book is divided thematically, as Chole takes us back to the temptation story. Chole points out that this episode was Jesus' entry into His ministry, and be observing how he responds to Satan we learn about the character God grew in Jesus during his hidden years. The content is divided into sections, each one focused on a particular temptation by the enemy, followed by Jesus' response and what this teaches us about our walk with God, what characteristics we need to withstand these temptations. These are the characteristics that God grows in us when we enter our own hidden years.

This book affected me for several reasons. First of all, I'm a recent stay at home mom. Despite the fact that respect has grown tremendously for stay at home parents in past years, that doesn't change the fact that when you make the move, you go off the radar, so to speak. Try to have conversations with people when you take career out of the dialogue pool. I definitely feel like I've entered my own hidden years.

More than that, though, the temptations that she writes about struck home. The desire for fame or attention, the desire to obey short term gratifications that are harmful in the long term, and the desire for power. People struggle with these, right? Because I do. Some more than others. She applies them all to modern day life, and she writes with clarity and concision about what we can do to fight them. I know that I want to defy these temptations, just as my lord Jesus did, and I was both convicted and encouraged by reading this book. It is one that I will read again, and hope to better my life through the lessons that are contained in it. ( )
