Sometimes I Forget Is Launched! (Giveaway)

Gold Brush Stroke

Come rest with the One whose very nature promises hope.

Sometimes I Forget: 60 Reminders of Hope for Your Hard Days is available for purchase wherever books are sold. A unique devotional, it includes prayers, quotes, Scripture verses, stories, and truth reminders related to 60 attributes of God.

I needed this book, so I wrote it. I needed reminders that God is trustworthy, that I can believe that the promises He made to His children in Scripture are for me, not only for everyone else.

Sometimes I’d look around and wonder where the fulfillment of those promises was. Sometimes I’d question whether God really cared … whether He would truly never leave me nor forsake me. I felt desperate to trust the One who promised these things to me.

During a time of reflection and desperation, I begin writing out my woes and then, in response to those hardships, I started listing all of God’s attributes, the reasons I could trust Him with my burdens. That honest and vulnerable post birthed this book.

Our Faith Is Tested

Are you in a difficult season? Does life not make sense to you right now? Is there a burden you carry that is growing heavier every day? Does fear of the future overwhelm you? Are there relationships or situations in your life that frustrate or anger you?

Does fear of the future overwhelm you? Are there relationships or situations in your life that frustrate or anger you? You are not alone. #sometimesiforgetbook #youarenotalone Share on X

You are not alone. We live in a broken world, where sin and doubt create a toxic mix, where bodies wear out and relationships wear thin, where Satan will use everything in his power to convince us that we should place our security in anything other than God. We live in a world that constantly tests our faith.

God’s Unchanging Nature

Yet, God’s unchanging nature gives us reason to hope, a solid foundation on which to stand. Reviewing God’s character and how He relates to us in the fullness of that character refocuses and re-anchors our trust in Him. I pray readers of Sometimes I Forget will have their trust be refocused and re-anchored in the Lord.

    The fact that he is unchanging is a comfort.
    There is a couple with a disabled boy that I would like to give a copy to.

    • Julie Sunne on May 28, 2024 at 11:36 am

      His unchanging nature is such a comfort to me too, Darla.

  2. Pat on May 20, 2024 at 3:03 pm

    Grace -unending grace. Grace for the moment and the dat and sometime during the night. He is always there and providing that and hope.

    My friend Angie needs your book of encouragement and will treasure it as I will.

    • Julie Sunne on May 20, 2024 at 3:38 pm

      Exactly, Pat! God’s abundant and amazing grace is for this present moment … and the next, and the next. Lifting Angie in prayer.

    • Maryann on May 27, 2024 at 12:26 pm

      God’s faithfulness always comforts me. No matter what happens to us in this earthly life on a daily basis He is a constant anchor for us and He never changes. His promises are sure and true. My friend Heather would be encouraged by your book, she is in the midst of her third cancer journey.

      • Julie Sunne on May 27, 2024 at 9:50 pm

        Oh, Maryann, trusting God’s faithfulness is critical to walking through such terrific battles as your friend’s. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Praying the Lord meets Heather in a profound and lasting way during this hard season she’s facing.

  3. Carol Dietel on May 20, 2024 at 3:25 pm

    Every-time I feel like I am alone in my mess, something good happens when I don’t expect it and reminds me of His presence.

    I would love to receive your inspirational book to keep me motivated in the storms of life.

    • Julie Sunne on May 28, 2024 at 11:38 am

      He is absolutely faithful, Carol, and gives us the exact grace we need for the moment we’re in. You, my friend, are never alone!

  4. Renée Cornelius on May 20, 2024 at 6:44 pm

    Faithfulness. He never leaves me and is faithful to keep His promises.
    Deuteronomy 31:6-8

    • Julie Sunne on May 28, 2024 at 11:40 am

      Amen, Renee! We are never alone, and He will always fulfill His promises to us.

  5. Diane on May 20, 2024 at 11:07 pm

    Strength- especially His strength being perfect in my weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9). I would love to give your book to so many friends, but specifically to Joleen.

    • Julie Sunne on May 28, 2024 at 11:45 am

      It’s so comforting to know the Lord is strong in our weakness, Diane. Lifting Joleen up in prayer.

  6. Connie Lemaster on May 21, 2024 at 2:54 am

    MERCY for sure! God is so merciful to us all. His mercy allows me to not only be His child, but also allows me to be forgiven when I mess up!

    My cousin Sheila went through the loss of both parents in a short amount of time. She would love to have this book!

    • Julie Sunne on May 21, 2024 at 2:52 pm

      Yes, His mercy that’s new every day! Oh, I know how difficult that is, Connie! Praying for Sheila.

  7. Martha on May 22, 2024 at 6:01 am

    Faithfulness, I can depend on Him to NEVER leave me. I have lived in physical pain for 30 years. He greets me in the morning and holds me on the hard days, hears my prayers and tucks me in bed at night while standing watch. On my good nights, I sleep well but on my rough nights, I can find Him comforting me. I would give this book to my sister, Terry who is her husband’s 24/7 caregiver (He has Alzheimer’s). Have a great day!

    • Julie Sunne on May 28, 2024 at 11:52 am

      Oh, Martha, I’m so sorry for your suffering. Yes, the Lord will remain faithful, which is such a comfort. Caregiving is such a difficult calling. Praying for Terry and her husband.

  8. Toni Horvat on May 24, 2024 at 8:56 am

    I love God’s patience. I need that so much on my hard days, to remember that He is patient with His faltering child. I would love to give a copy to my best friend Kelly – we’ve walked through many hard days together over the years.

    • Julie Sunne on May 28, 2024 at 11:54 am

      Oh, how I need His patience, too, Toni! His mercy is great.

  9. Tim on May 24, 2024 at 11:05 am


  10. Jennifer Cook on May 24, 2024 at 12:03 pm

    I love that Jesus is peace.

    • Julie Sunne on May 28, 2024 at 11:56 am

      Oh, to rest in His peace, Jennifer! When we surrender, He delivers.

  11. Terri Bargerhuff on May 24, 2024 at 12:23 pm

    I am so thankful for His faithfulness!
    If we are faithless, He remains faithful [true to His word and His righteous character], for He cannot deny Himself.
    2 Timothy 2:13

    • Julie Sunne on May 28, 2024 at 11:56 am

      Amen, Terri! His faithfulness never wanes.

Hello, I'm Julie, an imperfect wife and mother of four. Life in this broken world is not always easy. Yet, joy can be found in each day through the grace and mercy of the Lord Jesus Christ.

I find it's easy for our day's blessings to get lost in its happenings. But God's "mercies never end" (Lamentations 3:22) and His "grace is sufficient" (2 Corinthians 12:9).

May the posts and pages on this site offer you a measure of peace and encouragement.
