Review

"How Big Is Your Umbrella? begins with the accusations we often hurl at God, and finally helps us find shelter as we listen to His still, small voice, even in the midst of the wind and the rain. A perfect gift for those who are struggling, questioning, or crying, How Big Is Your Umbrella? is a non-intimidating entrance into the heart of our storms, and a map for emerging safely and securely on the other side." (Beyond Ordinary Living )

From the Back Cover

“And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock.”

—Matthew 7:25, MSG

Life has its inevitable storms. While we all secretly hope for the fairy-tale “happily ever after,” we instinctively dread the storm that can destroy all our dreams . . . or at the very least, leave us with overwhelming grief and despair.

Preparing and shielding yourself from storms is half the battle. Facing them unprepared can have disastrous results. Packed with Scripture, real-life examples, and stories of the author’s own journey through life’s downpours, How Big Is Your Umbrella? helps equip us to weather all sorts of storms successfully.

Format: Paperback
This book touched me in many ways. Gregoire has an amazing talent at reaching those who are disconnected and weary in their faith. I loved this book, in fact I am now buying copies of it to give to some of my friends.

Format: Paperback
This small book is packed with godly wisdom. Sheila gets right to the point. If you have suffered any kind of loss, or ever found yourself questioning God this book is for you. It is quick to read, but the rewards of doing so will be far-reaching. It is a tiny book worth it's weight in gold.
