I know she was talking directly to me, and I listend. Dec 3, 2008
This was the first book that I had ever read by this author. I was having my hair done,thumbing through magazines, when I saw an ad for this book. I stopped, right there, and thought. . . This is my life! (forgive me) I tore the whole page out of the magazine and put it in my pocket, there are some things that you must not forget. When I got home I looked it upon on the internet, searched around town until I found it. I went right away the next day and purchased the book.
Wow, it is such a wonderful book. I read it, and it changed many of the ways I had been thinking. My freinds noticed the change in me also. It was so good I read it again, this time I highlighted important things to me. I was so inspired, that I loaned it to a friend. She took too long to get it back to me, so I went on this site found me an inexpensive copy and bought it again. I read it over and over, it inspires me, and helps me to get throught the rough patches in my life, and Lord knows there have been many. It is a wonderful book.
true blessing for me! Aug 20, 2008
i bought this book a few years ago thinking of my mother when my grandmother passed but i didn't think she would be open to it and read it so i held onto it. i have had my own hurts and disappointments recently and felt i needed something to help me through it all. i started reading and felt more hopeful and encouraged with each chapter. the book is Christian based but doesn't feel preachy or condemning. it's doesn't overlook the fact that when you're going through a storm you are really hurting and sometimes it's hard to think you'll make it to the other side of your pain.
the book uses biblical examples and has scriptures in the chapters (so you don't need to cross reference your bible as you read through which i appreciated). the author starts with the basics when you're going through a tough time - rest, eat, drink but not in the traditional sense that we think of. she then tells you how to get stronger and truly be better through it all. she encourages you to get closer to God in your disappointment which is sometimes very difficult.
the book will help you through any loss or disappointment you might be going through - the loss of a relationship, a loved one or child, a job. be encouraged...you can make it!

I absolutely loved this book! I read it when I was in the process of a divorce. It helped me so much!! Michelle Hammond is my girl, she really allows the Lord to use her in her writing!
Just what I needed Aug 11, 2006
This book is perfect. Whether you're going through something huge or something small. All struggles seem huge to us at the time and this book gives a breath of fresh air and a little break from what you are going through. Michelle (as always) takes a very Biblical perspective on the struggles and hard times that we face in life. The hard times will not stop coming as long as we are living, so we might as well get used to getting back on our feet. She allows time for grief and helps make sense of things that seem senseless. She also gives simple reminders like eating and resting and taking care of your temple during these hard times. God is good and I'm so glad to have authors like Michelle out there who can really offer wisdom. A great book. I'll read it again the next time life knocks me down and do the questions after each section for deeper understanding.
