Are you ready for a HOPE filled book?
I can not rave about this book enough. This was an on time book for me.
This is a book that will have you running into Gods arms. You truly will find yourself reading your Bible more as you are reading this book! Now that is a good thing. As well as praying more. You will also find yourself forgiving those that need forgiving from your past. You feel Gods arms wrapped around you while reading this book.
We all need to read a book of hope, and I am so blessed that I got to read this book of hope.
Cynthia has penned a book that most of us can see our self in every page of.
Are you living a life of unhappiness because of someone else's poor choices? This is a book written just for you.
This is a must read book! I gave this book 5 stars.
I HIGHLY recommend this book.
I was given a copy of this book by another book reviewer to read and review. I am so thankful to her for sharing it with me.
By the author telling these stories it gives the reader who may be going through one of these circumstances right now, Hope. The Hope that God never leaves us during our trials and tribulations. We can cling to Him to carry us through. During a certain situation in my life I literally clung to God's promises. I lived one of the stories. The panic and devastation was real. I had the choice to go it on my own or put my life in God's hands. I chose God's hands!
I urge anyone reading this review to pick up a copy of Ragged Hope. It just might help you through a trial you are facing!
Each chapter begins with a personal story from someone whose life was ripped apart through no fault of their own. The woman whose husband gambled away their life and embezzled to cover it up. The monogamous woman who contracted AIDS from her husband. The family who lost their home to arson. And many more. The author then follows the story with what sheâ€™s learned from that personâ€™s journey, and finishes the chapter with questions for reflection and journaling.
I read the book in just a few hours and each story captivated me immediately. Ruchti is an excellent writer. This is the kind of book that could easily come across as preachy but Ruchti avoids that trap while making it look easy.
If your life has been disrupted by someone elseâ€™s action or if you know someone struggling in that situation, this book is an excellent resource. It wonâ€™t solve everything. Actually, it alone wonâ€™t solve anything, but it is one more tool in the hope chest of the sojourner.
I recommend it.
I highly recommend, I give it five stars!
