Editorial Reviews

Christian Retailing
"Jennifer encourages all readers to trust that God has a purpose for them and that He is walking with them even through life's trials."
Janette Oke
"A personal relationship with Jesus changes our view of everything in life and makes ordinary, everyday circumstances a spiritual object lesson. Jennifer has shared with us her exciting journey of growing in Christ. May the lessons she has taken to heart reach our hearts as well."
Steve Saint
"If Jennifer dares to suggest that God had a purpose for what happened in her life, then we should listen. If she can find hope in her circumstances, then we can find hope in ours."
