Four women, one weekend, and their lives will never be the same.
Stephanie London thought she’d heard from God when she moved to Hope Springs, N.C. But a tragedy in that small town left her soul desolate. Now her husband’s inattentiveness has pushed her over the edge. Bereft of hope, she travels home to St. Louis as a women’s ministry conference kicks off. Though less than enthused to attend, new friendships offer strength and light. But what happens when the weekend ends and real life begins again?
Treva Langston grieves still the loss of her husband of twenty-two years. Now, two years later, her heart is breaking again as her oldest daughter’s travails come to light. Traveling from DC to St. Louis for a women’s conference seems the last thing she should do, given the circumstances. But in St. Louis her path crosses with someone new—and her world turns upside down. Will it only lead to more heartbreak?
Jillian Mason can’t wait to attend the Living Word women’s conference. She’s done their Bible studies for years and expects God to show up in an amazing way. But the weekend delivers something unexpected—a discovery about her husband. As the state of her marriage hangs in the balance, Jillian is suddenly anxious about returning home.
Faith Langston has always been a girl after God’s heart. She loves Living Word studies and registered early for the conference. But at the end of her college sophomore year, she finds herself in circumstances she never imagined—with a heart that has strayed from God. She makes it to St. Louis nonetheless, with her boyfriend in tow—but how will she find her way back to God?
Four women in different seasons of life converge at a women’s conference—with a theme that charges them to run “in hot pursuit” for Christ. But how do they run when challenges seem insurmountable? And can they help one another navigate the difficult terrain?

I really enjoyed reading this book, it reminded me that though I may stumble in this Christian race , I can keep running long as I run with my focus on Jesus. If I do fall I can get back up and keep running. Race is not given to the swift or the strong, but to those that endure to the end.
What a wonderful read. Can't wait to discuss it with our bookclub. Not only a great story line email but great spiritual insight as well. It was also great reading and having the geographic area come home to you heart. An uplifting story of faith and family. A must read!
Cash Tate did a wonderful job of developing the characters and making their issues relatable to the readers. I especially enjoyed how she was able to deliver a message better yet a "a word" to the reader by narrowing her focus to a few bible verses and a specific theme. I appreciated how the characters were able to incorporate and applied the "word" to their lives in spite of the emotionality of their thought. Second chances and redemption through the Savior. I will incorporating the verse " though I stumble " in prayers. I look forward to reading more from this author. Job well done!!!!
This book gave me the desire to get back in the race and run. I was in a rut, serious rut where I felt like I was no more use for the kingdom. You name it I had experienced it in the church. All my life I have ministered in the church from the pulpit to the bathroom. Circumstances in my life had me feeling like I had nothing more to give. Was not interested in reading the Bible or attended church. This book, I read, cried and reflected. It was as if God was speaking loud and clear. RUN, your life depends on you running. Get back in the race and run, though you stumbled, run in hot pursuit of God and not Man! Many blessings to the author, continue to let God use you. Your book restored me. God Bless you.
