Overview

When Life Doesn't Go Your Way: Hope for Catholic Women Facing Disappointment and Pain by Katrina J. Zeno

Most women have a mental “script” or plan for their lives. And, of course, that script has a happy ending. However, that’s not always what happens. When we are faced with a change in the script—whether that be a loss of a loved one, a dream, our health, or some other tragic event—how do we respond in faith? Retreat speaker and author Katrina J. Zeno wants us to have a heart of hope, one that presses into God and stays connected instead of drawing away during difficult times. Through personal stories, anecdotes, witnesses, and Scripture, Zeno invites women to recognize God’s goodness, presence, and action in their lives.
- Each chapter ends with questions for reflection and discussion.
- Great for women’s faith-sharing group or book club.
-?Makes a thoughtful gift for someone going through difficult times.

I really enjoyed this book because for every chapter, it has several references from the Bible as examples for the chapters. It is very helpful in making you understand that god is with us all the time. The book has helped get through why certail things happened to me. I recommened this book to anyone who thinks that nothing good will come out of a bad situation that they are experiencing. I believe that this book is worthwhile to read. I think that the questions at the end of each chapter helps you relate yourself to what you learned from each chapter. Overall, it helped me realize that this has happened to other people, even in the bible, and that I must learn to overcome my problems like they did.
