Run away. That's what Faith Strauss has done for twenty years. She was destroyed by one tragic event. An event so horrific, she didn't share it with anyone, not even her husband. She buried it deep inside, where it can't hurt anyone.
If God is good, then where was He? Why didn't He stop it? How can she trust Him ever again?
Run, run, run...
She's not good enough. Never has been. Never will be. She could lose it all again, if she's not careful. She married, had children, and carved out a life for herself. But Fear is her ever-present companion, always reminding her never to reach too far, or too high.
Run, run, run...
God has another plan. A plan that she never saw, even though she has walked it her entire life. Will the unexpected exposure of her secret and the truth behind it restore her or destroy her all over again?
It's time to stop running.

About the Author
Closing her business hasn't made her a couch potato, however. She cooks at the weekly Wednesday night dinners for her church, and also volunteers at the Cross Talk café in support of the Celebrate Recovery church ministry on Friday nights. She has volunteered her time as a Mentor Mom for two MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) groups. When she's not busy in the church doors, she's happily entertaining people in her home.
She not only has a passion for writing, but also for serving. She views writing as a form of service for people from all walks of life. Jesus used story-telling to convey life principles, why can't we do the same?
She lives in southern Illinois with her ridiculously patient husband of twenty four years, three children, and her two Chihuahua guard dogs, Snoopy and Stanley. Faith, Hope, Love, and Chocolate is her first novel. She can be found at www.carischaeffer.com and also on Facebook.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I couldn't put the book down once I started reading. As a matter of fact, I found it a nuisance that I had to stop to eat! This book tackles real issues that people face every day. Friendships are tested, beliefs about ourselves are questioned, and people that appear "perfect" on the outside...aren't. Somehow, it's all OK. I like that this is a wholesome book without curse words or perverse sexual situations. It's OK to share with everyone in your life that has a past that has hurt them. In fact, please do share it with them. Love it! I can't wait to read more from this first time author.
