Overview


In What’s Next?: Inspiration for Women Seeking Faith and Joy in Their Lives, Rena Pederson helped thousands of women discover their own "next step" by looking to the lives of successful women – famous and not-so-famous – who redefined themselves in midlife. Now, in What’s Missing?, she engages another group of women in a conversation on the nature of faith from various traditions – to help you rediscover its importance in your own life.

From First Lady Laura Bush to singer Patti LaBelle and journalist Diane Sawyer, the women interviewed have a spiritual foundation that has given them the strength to overcome obstacles and achieve success in their lives. These women – along with others from around the nation – reveal how faith in its many forms helped them withstand life’s pitfalls and emerge happier, healthier and stronger.

What’s Missing? will help you examine what’s missing from your life and how faith can give you direction.

Inside, you’ll find inspiring wisdom on how to pray; the importance of listening to others and to God; how doubting and questioning can strengthen your faith, how to turn your faith into action, and how faith can help reassure you in the midst of life’s uncertainties.

Whether you are turning to faith for the first time, or renewing beliefs, this book will be a wonderful companion.

Includes insights from First Lady Laura Bush, Diane Sawyer, Karen Armstrong, Patti LaBelle, Judy Collins, Peggy Noonan, Zina Garrison, Naomi Harris Rosenblatt, Rabbi Janet Marder, Linda Alvarado, Anne Graham Lotz, Beth Moore, Hind Jarrah, Sister Joan Chittister, Rep. Nancy Pelosi and many others.

    A truly lovely book!

    This book tells of women who have had obstacles in their lives, and how, through their faith, they have overcome them. Some are born into difficult circumstances; some create their own; some find them along the way. It talks of faith from all walks of life, not just Christianity; very inspiring. What a gift to give to the women in your life; I am getting one for all of my friends, for their birthdays, or any holiday.
