A transparent look at Courtenay's journey through her struggles and her faith that sustained her. An inspirational read for anyone who struggles with why bad things happen to good people.
This book touched my heart and is a true inspiration of how a Godly woman faced uncertain and physically very painful times. As I face trying times I will re-read its text over and over as a roadmap forward.
I couldnt put this book down. I could relate on so many levels to the tremendous growth we experience when go through trials. I loved the complete honesty about the difficulty in trusting God in everything and the sweet rewards of feeling his loving arms.
