Some of the stories will move you to tears and there might even be one that reminds you of your situation. But all of them will encourage you in your current or future season of no. This anthology reveals that when God says no:
1. You have to trust that God does everything in goodness and love;
2. You have to pray for the Holy Spirit to help you accept God’s plan;
3. And expect God to give you His grace to handle the answer and accept His will.
While God’s no is never easy to accept, unlike silence, it is an answer. And in that fact, we know He hears us and His no means He has a plan! The women of this anthology know this, and, in their stories, you will find the encouragement you need in your own season of no.
Be inspired by what love looks and feels like through the experience of someone who has endured and overcome the entanglements of unequally yoked relationships, and learned to BE and attract the love she desired.
As you engage in this heartfelt testimonial, Author Jo Anne desires that you reflect on your own relationship journey to identify your seasons of love; and then, be empowered to make authentic choices that honor you and increase your love vibration in the process.
"You never lose by loving. You always lose by holding back." - Barbara De Angelis
