Overview

Life is messy. But life is also beautiful. These are the twin themes that author/artist Carolyn Arends (writer of ten Top 10 Christian songs) opens up in her searching exploration of how God meets people in the ordinary moments of life, part of the ConversantLife.com line of books.

This humorous, tender, and passionate collection of personal stories illustrate the mysterious ways that God works to bring people through life’s struggles and discover the amazing power of grace.

  • Why the birth of her child and the death of a friend gave her a new perspective
  • What a prairie storm and the beauty of a bright red canyon can teach people about God
  • How mismatched shoes and Bach oratorios can give readers a glimpse into a deeper mystery

Fans of Don Miller and Anne Lamott will discover a kindred spirit in Carolyn and her transparent and gutsy meditations on life’s unanswered questions and the One who can be found there.

    Wrestling with Angels

    Carolyn Arends, author, songwriter, recording artist, sheds light on the role Jesus Christ has played in her life. She shares her poetry and bits of her life with readers. I have long enjoyed Old Testament stories. Ms. Arends retells the story of Jacob in a beautiful yet simple manner. She emphasizes the struggle with an angel. Jacob refuses to let go of the angel until he is blessed. The definition of a blessing is ¿love and acceptance¿. ¿Jacob gets his blessing but only through defeat.¿ We will be blessed when we surrender to the will of God. ¿It Has To Be You¿ is a spiritually fraught poem that could be describing my spiritual journey. Ms. Arends shares her dearest memories. She tells of a four year old praying for much needed rain. She shares her growth through prayer. Before a performance, God sent four women to pray with her. My favorite part of this book is the chapter concerning Alzheimer. Ms. Arends you have reminded me and others that even in the midst of watching our loved ones slip away, God is in charge and with Him there is always hope. Sometimes hope comes in the midst of a hymn. Wrestling With Angels by Carolyn Arends is a heartwarming book. I must admit that I was not familiar with her as a songwriter or recording artist. I will remedy that later today. The stories of her life were sometimes humorous, always caring, and ardent. I highly recommend Wrestling With Angels to all Christians.
