    This was a really good read. The author, Christine, is a Pastor?s wife. She?s a mom. She starts the book based on a question her young son asks her about life. She then takes readers on a journey through life. Life can be hard. We face tough situations, sadness, pain. We face ci...

    Once I got into this book I really loved it. I read Christine Hoover's other books...on being a friend, on being a pastor's wife, but this book was different as it was more reflective. Truth was told through story and examples and thoughts. It was different for me but I liked it for th...

    Such a timely read for me. I most appreciate Christine?s acknowledgement of what she refers to as the ?inconsolable things? of life yet does so while consistently and repeatedly pointing us to a sure hope. I underlined nearly every page. This will be one I come back to again and ...
