Reviews - What do customers think about One Year Book Of Hope?
Worth buying and sharing Jan 29, 2007
I came across this book from a Christian book review, and fell in love with it. Nancy Guthrie does not pull any punches. God is holy, no matter our circumstances.
After working through just a couple of weeks, I gave copies to each of my friends and co-workers on their birthdays throughout 2006. Even if you have never experienced great pain in life, you will find this book a blessing. And when you do experience tragedy - and we all do - you will be better able to work through it.
the one year book of hope Sep 21, 2006
for all of us who have suffered loss, for those of us who have known the sorrow of a death of a child this book is an honest look at how to get the peace of God
Great devotional book for the grieving. Mar 23, 2006
This devotional is written in such a gentle and sensitive way. I try to read it daily but sometimes while grieving you just can't stick with a routine. There's nothing to 'push' me along -- no dates, weeks, or months of the year. No 'guilt' for getting behind. It's ready for me when I'm ready for it. Sometimes I read several days at a time then miss several. It encourages me, and encourages thought and reflection. It tells me to trust in a loving God (which I do). This book also points to the scriptures and gives references which can be read in tandem with the devotion. This is a wonderful resource for those overwhelmed by grief.
THE ONE YEAR BOOK OF HOPE Mar 10, 2006
THIS BOOK IS WONDERFUL!!! I READ IT DAILY! SEVERAL TIMES A DAY! MY LITTLE GIRL WENT TO HEAVEN 19 MONTHS AGO, SHE WAS 20 MONTHS OLD, SHE HAD MITOCHONDRIAL DISEASE, THIS IS A VERY RARE AND PROGRESSIVE NEUROMUSCULAR DISEASE. LIFE IS VERY HARD FOR ME, ITS A STRUGGLE, BUT I CAN PICK THIS BOOK UP AND READ JUST ONE PAGE AND THE PAIN IS NOT AS BAD. I LOVE IT!! IT HELPS ME GO ON!! I READ "HOLDING ON TO HOPE" WHILE MY BABY WAS SICK, AND I WOULD JUST THINK "GOSH, I HOPE THAT I CAN BE STRONG LIKE THIS AUTHOR"!, THEN AFTER MY BABY DIED, I WAS ON this site AND THIS BOOK WAS SUGGESTED TO ME. IT IS REALLY GREAT, I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE.
Hope is what I need Jan 31, 2006
I was given this book by a friend who had originally bought it for herself (her father had been diagnosed with terminal cancer) but after she read the forward she felt that it was meant for me. I lost my son to a terminal genetic muscle defect 11 days after he was born.
I have been learning so much about myself and so much more about who God is. Because Nancy's situation was very similar to my own, I feel like she knows how I feel and the experiences I am having. I love being able to spend time everyday learning more and gaining new insight into God. Also to be able to heal little by little while growing stronger in my faith is very encouraging.
The layout is great. It is written so that it can be read daily on schedule or it can be read at your own pace. The topics are relevent to the grieving processes and offer verses that correspond. Often the verses are ones that I have read before but I had never thought of them in the way that she offers them.
