"Ordinary Women - Extraordinary God"
Ordinary Women -- Extraordinary God
I started this book a little over two years ago. It was a thought planted into my head by the Lord, I'm sure, because during these two years, I've stopped and started up again on the writing - always feeling the tug of the Holy Spirit when to move forward. It's truly been a labor of love. I also believe God chose the 12 women who shared their stories with us and that He will use what He's done in their lives to encourage His children and to glorify His matchless name. Here's the blurb on the back cover of the book:
What do we do when life throws us a curve? How do we react? Does our view of God change? What is the secret to surviving crushing loss or sorrowful circumstances and still praising God? This book contains stories of 14 ordinary women (and one ordinary man) who have gone through various degrees of difficulty or tragedy. These women have come through their trial (or in some cases, are still going through the trial) with a prayer on their lips and praise to our extraordinary God in their hearts.
Along with these present-day sisters in Christ, there are enlightening stories from a few Biblical sisters in the faith. There are also messages from God’s word on such topics as fear, tears, His all-sufficient grace, and beauty from ashes.
Read the stories of ordinary women like you and me. You’ll cry over their pain and loss, laugh at their humorous tidbits, rejoice in their victories and, hopefully, whisper a prayer for those who are still going through the floodwaters.
“Yet I will rejoice in the Lord…” Habakkuk 3:18
The book is available in print and ebook through Amazon. I've tried to price it to be affordable to readers so that God's message will spread. All praise to King Jesus!
