Overview

In this personal account of experiencing unexpected blessings and strength in the face of extreme trials, Courtenay Zurenko offers the reader hope, truth and comfort. Her vulnerability in discussing the difficult issues she encounters makes the reader feel like a close friend and confidant. These issues, chronicled in detail throughout the book, include postpartum depression, chronic illness, feelings of insecurity and inadequacy in motherhood and in marriage. Such issues are incredibly common, however rarely talked about so openly. Courtenay takes the reader on an intense, yet lighthearted journey as she learns to trust God and feel His presence during the hardest time in her life. She effectively uses self-deprecating humor and honesty in her storytelling.

Whether you’re going through a difficult time or trying to be there for a loved one in need, this book provides wisdom and practical life applications on both ends of the spectrum. Follow her spiritual, physical and emotional journey through her own words, as she includes the actual journal entries, Facebook posts, pictures and notes from friends that brought her the most encouragement throughout her fight of a lifetime. See how God’s presence is made known to all of us when He decides to change our ideal plans and we decide to rely on and follow Him.

    Awesomely Inspiring

    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.

    Loved it!

    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.
