Sheila Walsh writes about her own experiences while giving us excerpts from the Bible to show us that others have also faced challenges in their lives. The main message throughout the book is let us know that God is in control and that we must trust God and allow ourselves to follow Him. We all have tough patches to get through, but trusting that God will bring us through if we just trust Him is what we need to do.
Although this type of book is not what I normally read, I did enjoy it and recommend it to others. At times some of us feel like we are the only ones who have ever had troubles in our lives. Hearing stories from the Bible helps to remind us that everyone has rough patches along the way in life and that we must not give up or be ashamed if we feel that we have failed in some way. At times in this book, I felt a bit sceptical about the simple message to just follow God. It's not always that clear to most of us as to which way to go or what to do. It would make everything a lot easier to just be able to accept that God has a plan for each of us. I do recommend this book to everyone, especially women who have doubts about their own lives and need to be reassured that God does have a plan and that we all can follow Him where he leads us.
