A beautiful, honest, vulnerable journey from pain to healing
on March 30, 2011
Denise Hildreth Jones has written a beautifully encouraging book, based on her personal journals written in the months following the end of her 15-year marriage. While I have not personally gone through such a situation, I have many dear friends who have (and several who are right now). Regardless of the situation, the pain seems to be universal.
I ordered 5 copies...one for myself and four for my friends going through divorce. I gave them their copies without pre-reading the book because I knew that Denise would write with honesty and wisdom, and that her testimony of God's healing would ultimately be redemptive. I was absolutely right. I read the book and found myself in tears in several passages, just because of the raw vulnerability with which Denise wrote her account. Each woman who received the books from me has mentioned how much it has impacted her and how much encouragement she has received upon reading it.
I would highly encourage this book for anyone who is going through, or has been through, a divorce, separation, or really any dark season of the soul. I believe you'll find Denise's words to be life-giving and that you'll find hope for your own situation within her testimony of God's faithfulness.
