Trusting God: A Girlfriends in God Faith Adventure

The title is what caught my eye. And the pages inside match what the title promises. Sharon Jaynes, Gwen Smith, and Mary Southerland offer us compassion. Each chapter has a truth section, a Friend to Friend section, and a prayer section. At the conclusion of each section, there are reflection questions. This would be a great book to use for a Bible study.

 

I believe that these women do a very effective job of sharing their faith and the faith of those around them, from grandchildren to Sunday School children, to illustrate our faith in God.

 

The sections of the book are divided up into weeks. Week 11 was the section that spoke to me. Sharon Jaynes wrote about experiencing a miscarriage. I have been through that pain. I should focus more on the beautiful children I have and less on the losses, but it is so easy to get mired in that pain. On page 238, Sharon writes, “All through those years of infertility and loss, Satan, the Enemy, taunted me with words of doubt. God doesn’t love you, he’d say. If He loved you, He’d give you what you asked for. He doesn’t love you. You can’t trust Him with your heart.” And yet, she cannot overlook what she WAS given.

 

I received a free copy of this book from Multnomah Books and reviewed it for them. I was under no obligation to give a favorable review.
