“In the decade I’ve known Kendra Fletcher, she’s known suffering and I’ve known more of the complete freedom found in our Suffering Savior because of her journey and his open arms. This book isn’t pages. It’s a compass that points you toward the Light, toward Christ, toward a life liberated to be freely and completely who you are in Christ. If you feel like you can’t live right enough—read on. There’s a way out: into him alone who is always more than enough.”
Ann Voskamp, Homeschooling mother to 7; author of the New York Times bestsellers The Broken Way and One Thousand Gifts
“In this unbelievably heart-wrenching story of medical emergency after medical emergency Kendra tells us how she rediscovered the beauty of the gospel. As you read Lost and Found you will find yourself falling in love with Jesus all over again. You will identify with her when she admits failure and you will rejoice with her as she finds her identity in Christ.”
Jessica Thompson, Author of Everyday Grace; conference speaker
“In his great kindness and love, the Lord frequently speaks to us with occurrences that are so much louder than words we’re familiar with. He does this because he cherishes us and wants to free us from our false trusts: trusts in something other than his grace, trusts in the identity we’ve dressed ourselves in, trusts in our own abilities to self-righteously pull it off. Though this freedom is delightful we always militate against it, because we’re terrified of losing what we think we can’t live without. My friend Kendra Fletcher has been given that freedom and I’m so thankful; but the way that it came to her was as hard as anything I’ve ever read. Let me encourage you to dive deeply into Kendra’s story and see the wonderful freedom that comes from loss and being found.”
Elyse M. Fitzpatrick, Author of Because He Loves Me
“Someone has said that the hard places of life will either make you hard and mean or drive you to Jesus. That’s true, but there’s more than that. Sometimes the dark will teach you about yourself, about God’s love and about amazing grace. There are those who have been there and teach the rest of us what they found so we can find it too. That’s what Kendra Fletcher has done in a wonderful and refreshing way. As I read this book I cried, I laughed, and I sang ‘The Hallelujah Chorus!’ This is a book that just might change your life!
Steve Brown, Key Life radio broadcaster; author of Hidden Agendas and How to Talk So People Will Listen
“Compelling, compassionate, convicting describe the story behind Lost And Found. Yet, as readers, we are lead to such a profound, transforming understanding of the infinite love and grace of God, our hearts are filled with relief as we are reminded that we do not have to earn his eternal love and companionship, but that his goodness and mercy follow us every step of our lives. Kendra’s story brings lifegiving beauty through each page.”
Sally Clarkson, blogger; speaker; author
“In days where worldly prosperity gospel tries to convince us that suffering doesn't
exist, and religious moral behaviorism says, ‘God owes me,’ Kendra Fletcher reveals
the beauty and grace of God found in the midst of real pain in honest people. Her
testimony of God using the catastrophes of life to draw her back to himself
encourages us to see the hope that we are all longing for and can find in Jesus. This
book is a page turner of true hope and joy in a real world.”
Jim Applegate, Pastor at Redeemer, Modesto, CA
“The message Kendra has to share is one that can only be described as ‘desperately
needed.’ In a society laden with self sufficiency and self dependency, our souls are
starving for the tenderness of being cared for by someone who truly loves us . . . not
for what we can do for him, but because of his unrelenting grace. Experiencing
heartbreak and trials beyond her wildest nightmares, Kendra shares how God
reached down and helped her lose her religion and find the grace that was hers all
along. He has that very same grace for each one of us. Kendra’s story helps us see
what it looks like so we can embrace it as well.”
Durenda Wilson, Author of The Unhurried Homeschooler
“Too many believers aren’t desperately needy for Jesus. They feel like they are good
enough on their own. Through her tragic but beautiful story, Kendra describes how
she powerfully encountered the God she thought she knew . . . a God who is close,
gracious, and necessary for our every breath. Lost and Found is for anyone who
desires a fresh encounter with God in their own story.”
Barrett Johnson, Founder of INFO for Families; author of The Talk(s)
“Kendra’s story of her journey to the cross drops keys of freedom into the hands of
beautiful rowdy prisoners as she turns our eyes to the one and only Savior who sets
the captives free. Read Lost and Found and share it with others, then watch as the
prison doors swing open. A truly gospel-centered, Christ-exalting read.“
Kimm Crandall, Author of Christ in the Chaos and Beloved Mess

Truth is, I didn't know. There is a sentence in this book that pretty much sums up how I've been attempting to live my life. Here it is: " Our identity had been in being a part of the "right Church" believing the "right" things and behaving the "right" way. It certainly hadn't been in Jesus."
I don't know about you, but I find that way of living...exhausting.
Kendra tells a very intriguing and heart wrenching story about their family's journey to experiencing the ultimate Grace of Jesus in their lives.
While the book is about her life, it's even more so about our Saviour. Each and every page points you to the Cross, encourages you to lay down those impossible expectations and claim the redemption Christ has already given you!
Stop living in your religion. Find out what "freedom in Christ" really means. You will not regret purchasing and reading this book. My advice? Order a couple extra. You will want to pass them on to your friends.
Lost and Found is a must read for anyone who has ever lost their way. If you find yourself wondering why am I enduring this hardship, then you should pick up a copy of Kendra's book. If you long for a closer relationship with your Savior, then I strongly encourage you to read Lost and Found.
