Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
"You don't have to get your act together, lose ten pounds...write a best-selling book, or raise perfect children"-God loves you anyway. So begins this collection of writings by Christian authors, which focuses on how a close relationship with God improves a woman's life in myriad ways. The title essay by Moore (Things Pondered) exhorts women to devote themselves "utterly" to God, and shows how morning prayer time helps "satisfy your soul." In a smooth, sermon-like essay, Briscoe (Prayer That Works) considers the ways women are viewed positively in scripture, and encourages women to minister, as Jesus did, with "a vision, a passion, and a mission." Wilson (Hurt People Hurt People) outlines the seven areas of a woman's life-spiritual, personal, relational, rational, emotional, volitional, and behavioral-and shows how understanding and growing in these areas can help improve self-esteem. "Being a Godly Woman Through Every Stage of Life," by Hart, a chaplain at Fuller Theological Seminary, uses scripture to urge women to depend on God during difficult times, and "Living in the Spirit of Unity," by Wells, the founder of A Woman of God Ministries, teaches readers about the power of love. Women looking for spiritual sustenance will find comfort in these pages, as the authors share personal problems and triumphs as well as their passionate commitment to a closer relationship with God.

    For anyone asking 'Why did God let that happen?'

    'Pain is pain is pain,' Kent says. Whether it is dealing with raising an autistic child, grieving the death of a son in Iraq, suffering the betrayal of a spouse, or living with paralysis from an accident it's all pain. Carol Kent speaks from her own experience of living a new kind of normal after her son is sentenced to life in prison without parole. She weaves together the true stories of many who suffer the pain of adjusting to a new kind of normal - including her perspective of the suffering of Mary the mother of Jesus. In each story she reveals the hope that carries a person through regardless of the circumstances. If you are grieving the loss of a life that used to be or disappointment over a life you had hoped for, you will find encouragement, peace and hope in this book.

    A Book About Loss

    Carol Kent writes about many losses endured by others and about her family's way of finally dealing with their loss, which is the life imprisonment of their only child. A wonderful, upstanding, son who faced a promising future, he snapped and in a moment completely out of character, shot and killed his stepdaughters' father, certain in his heart and mind that the children were being abused. How does one deal with overwhelming loss? The Kent family: mother, father, and son turned to their faith and created for themselves a new kind of normal.
    Carol Kent is a faith based speaker, a writer, and the founder and president of Speak Up For Hope, a prison ministry. The Kents visit their son on Sunday afternoons.
    Eunice Boeve, author of Maggie Rose and Sass

    You really WILL survive this crisis

    I saw Carol in person at a seminar and cried the entire time as my son was going through something similar but on a smaller scale. Her feelings as a mom, the raw emotions, are all expressed in her book. To know that others are walking through this or have been through this makes it so much easier to deal with. Carol writes from her heart and it is REAL. Both her books brought healing to me. I was able to walk through it and I LIVED!!! Get this book, read it and keep it close.

    A Refreshing View On Suffering and Faith

    I couldn't put this book down! I read it in two nights. Carol Kent, along with excerpts from her son and husband, show us what it means to not 'spiritualize' pain and loss. I can't say 'HURRAY' enough! There are so many Christians that just put a pious platitude on their pain, or the pain of others, and the connection that is intended by God between the two never happens. They become 'holier than thou' in their suffering. Carol is just the opposite and I applaud her courage for leading the Christian community in the REAL struggle of faith.

    Making sense of unspeakable sorrow

    If we didn¿t live in an imperfect world¿no, make that ¿fallen world¿¿this book would be unnecessary. But we do live in the midst of sorrow and tragedy¿and in the Kents¿ case, in the aftermath of their son¿s murder of his wife¿s ex-husband and sentence of life without hope of parole. Instead of withdrawing from life and ministry, the Kents have chosen to share the tear-soaked, gut-wrenching lessons that have come from their faith in God to make good out of evil. In this book Carol lists eight choices that can lead to healing for those who¿ve lived through unspeakable sorrow: to survive, persevere, be vulnerable, forgive, trust, love with open hands, be thankful, and choose purposeful action. Though it includes details about their son¿s arrest and incarceration, the book embraces the stories of many others who¿ve learned in their suffering to turn to hope-filled choices. Get this book if you, or someone you care about, has struggled through raising a severely disabled child, depression, family rifts, business failures, terminal brain cancer, a spouse¿s pornography addiction, wayward children, abortion, broken engagement, and the hardships of a military spouse¿s overseas deployment. Carol writes with passion and authenticity. You read with growing awareness and appreciation of her and her husband¿s unconditional love for their son. If you haven¿t read her previous book birthed from this deep personal sorrow 'When I Lay My Isaac Down', make plans to do so soon.

    Must Have

    This is a must have for anyone who is or has gone through a life altering circumstance. A New Kind of Normal is filled with hope giving suggestions and skills for moving forward during difficult trials. The Kent's vulnerability in this book makes the reader know both the reality of their journey and the optimism of their life. This book can only significantly help all who read it. It would be of interest to both men and women.
