When I set out to read Arise From the Ashes, I was initially taken aback by the controversial topic in the first paragraph. As I continued reading I became more intrigued by the author’s circumstance. In fact, each story shared in Arise From the Ashes provided a fascinating view into the lives of women whose life circumstances could have nearly destroyed them, but by the grace of God, they came out victoriously.
No two stories tell the same or a similar circumstance, yet each shows how a woman’s life can become entangled by tough situations whether you’re married, single, a mother, a daughter or in the ministry. Tough circumstances touch us all. We don’t have to go looking for challenges; they find us.
Women taking charge of their circumstance is evident in the book. And, some of their situations were really sticky. The question each author had to ask herself is this: “This is my circumstance, but what am I go to do now”? From there the authors walk the reader through the moment that catapulted the change.
One thing I really appreciated is that none of the authors made excuses for their part in making a bad decision. Instead, she acknowledged the decision for the mistake it was, which allowed her to moved forward to success. The showed readers the hope that comes from knowing mistakes need not become a life-long sentence.
If you’re anything like me, after reading this book, you’ll want to celebrate *life* with the authors. I give God all the glory for the things He has done in their lives.
So if you’re looking for a compilation of stories about women like you, who have been through something and have overcome, this one is for you.
