“Katie Davis Majors is a voice for this generation, calling us all to a wild faith. She walks that sweet line between life and death, hope and despair, asking for a miracle and preparing yourself for the worst. She invites us into her story and pushes us to the edge, challenging us to dare to hope no matter what life throws at us.”
—Jefferson Bethke, author of Jesus>Religion and It’s Not What You Think
“Every page of this book is a piece of Katie’s heart. It’s one thing to say we believe God is good. It’s another thing to wrestle with Him in the trenches and come out assured on the other side.”
—Korie Robertson, New York Times best-selling author and star of A&E’s Duck Dynasty
“I’ve followed Katie’s story for years, and just when I thought it couldn’t get any more powerful, the Lord proved me wrong. As I read these words, I felt like I was in the pages with her, watching God unfold this amazing new season of her life. Her words and heart for Jesus will stay with me forever, and I’m honored to be on the sidelines cheering for all the chapters to come.”
—Angie Smith, speaker, blogger, and author of Seamless
“Once again my friend Katie has painted a beautiful picture of what it looks like to lead with love. You’re going to love this book.”
—Bob Goff, New York Times best-selling author of Love Does
“These are the inspirational words of a woman so connected to the heart of her Savior, she is willing to risk anything, regardless of the outcome, to make His name known. I have grown so much from her wisdom and bold example.”
—Jennie Allen, founder and visionary of IF:Gathering and author of Nothing to Prove

If you've ever felt broken or questioned God's goodness in the midst of suffering and pain - you need to read this. It will encourage you and build your faith as it reveals truths from God's word. This isn't your Sunday, prosperity, best-life-now shallow faith. This is gritty, messy, fire-tested, deep faith that endures.
“In our pain, He is near.
During sleepless nights and the death of friends and the breaking of families, Christ is all that remains constant and He is the only one who is sufficient. He holds my hands. He cups my face. He is near and He whispers of a day when the pain is gone and I can fall on my face and worship Him forever.”
Katie's journey in this book is one that we don't talk about as often as we should. It's a journey of choosing hope in the face of unexpected loss. It's a journey of choosing faith when it simply doesn't make sense. God's goodness isn't dependent on our circumstances. His faithfulness isn't curtailed by loss. He is good, and He is gracious. All the time. The writing is raw, real, and evocative. Katie cuts through the fluff and gets to the heart of the matter in a way that only someone who has been through it can do. What do you do when God doesn't answer prayers the way you think He should? How do you respond when the healing that you beg for doesn't arrive? Is God still good when bad things happen?
If you or someone you know is struggling to hold onto hope in the midst of darkness, I can't recommend this book enough. It was such a sweet encouragement to hold onto hope in the middle of the dark, dark night. Because morning is coming.
I will mention that I noticed that some of the reviews said something about her writing style being along the lines of Ann Voscamp. I personally do not care for Ann's abstract and mystical manner of writing, so that would turn me away from buying this book. There is nothing "airy, fairy" about this book and I did not find Katie's writing style to be like Ann's at all. It is much more solidly Biblical and deep.
