When trying seasons come -- as they often do -- women seek firm ground on which to stand. Author Susan Wales shares wisely from a lifetime of personal experience and communication with other women who have coped with the sometimes-piercing hurts within marriage, motherhood, infertility, divorce, financial loss, career, family, friendships, illness, aging, and the death of a loved one. "e;We all suffer disappointments in our lives,"e; says Wales. Her true-life "e;survival stories,"e; selected Scripture promises, and contemporary woman's counsel for difficult times will reach readers where they hurt and guide them gently on from fear to faith to freedom from emotional pain. The essential female reference -- for you or a hurting friend!From the Trade Paperback edition.
