Hurt is real. But so is hope. Kristen and Sarah have walked through, and are walking in, difficult times. Thus, these thirty biblical reflections are full of realism about the hurts of life - yet overwhelmingly full of hope about the God who gives life.
This book will gently encourage and greatly help any woman who is struggling with suffering - whether physical, emotional or psychological, and whether it is for a season or longer. Each chapter contains a biblical reflection, with questions and prayers, and a space for journaling.
"This is a wonderful, vulnerable and honest book... Kristen and Sarah have suffered immensely, but both of them know that our only hope is found in Jesus... they have labored to encourage our souls with the gospel, give us space to grieve our loss, and turn to the only source of real hope."
- Dave Furman, Senior Pastor of Redeemer Church of Dubai; Author of Being There: How to Love Those Who are Hurting
We have been told that we can do anything, to dream big, because women are strong and capable. But what happens when you are confronted with your limitations in the form of suffering? When you no longer feel strong and capable, but weak and weary? Kristen and Sarah provide hope in your desperation. They uniquely, as women from the "I can do anything" generation, speak to the discouragement that suffering can bring, and they drive us to the cross of Christ, where all of our suffering makes sense. There is much hope in this book for any weary Christian. And there is much wisdom for anyone seeking to love those who are weary and broken.
