Overview

God answers prayers. Jennifer Sands believed that. When she prayed for professional advancement, she got it. When she prayed for a mortgage approval, it came. When she prayed that her terminally ill brother be allowed to live, he was. When she prayed that her husband Jim would return home safely from work, he always did... except once.
On September 11, 2001, Jim Sands was killed in the attack on the World Trade Center. On that day, Jennifer's world imploded and she suffered the first blows of a pounding spiritual firestorm. Why would God send Jim to her as a soul mate only to rip him away in the prime of his life? Had God stopped listening? Had He stopped caring? Had they done something to deserve this? IF THERE REALLY IS A GOD, HOW COULD HE LET THIS HAPPEN?
"A Tempered Faith" is Jennifer's gripping, firsthand account of a young widow's questions, doubts, and desperate search for answers in the wake of her husband's murder. It is the emotionally raw journal of a battle to find footholds of faith in the midst of sorrow and spiritual darkness. Most of all, it is a joyful confirmation that God IS in control, He IS listening, and He DOES love and care for us... even when the earthly evidence suggests otherwise.

Editorial Reviews

Joni Eareckson Tada
Jennifer reminds us that finding the answers is not nearly as important as finding The Answer."
Philip Yancey
"Jennifer lays down a path of hope for others who face the unthinkable."
Janette Oke
"Loss is always difficult -- and to lose one we love dearly, so unexpectedly and tragically, rocks our boat until we are sure that the waves will sink us. There is so much we can learn about weathering life's storms in the pages of this book. God bless you, Jennifer, for having the courage to open your heart that others might find the strength and courage to journey on through faith in the One who truly understands all pain and loss."
St. Jude Media Ministry
"This is a love story for the ages. I couldn't put it down. This book will make you cry and laugh as it teaches you the meaning of a true faith in God and reveals the power of Christ."
