Finding Hope in the Journey

0 comments
FINDING HOPE IN THE JOURNEY
by Heidi Tucker

In the midst of suffering and trials in life, we can feel lost . . . abandoned. Life’s unexpected twists and turns cause us to focus inward. Shut down and just survive. But there is hope.

Finding Hope in the Journey is written for anyone who has felt despair, yet yearns for assurance. Experience with depression, chronic pain, a son returning home early from a mission and other difficult journeys gave author Heidi Tucker reason to lose faith. But through her struggles she found healthy patterns which positioned her heart to see God’s hand in her life. Finding Hope in the Journey teaches us how to see, hear and feel those quiet, tender moments of hope. The friendly style of writing is easy to embrace as principles are taught and reinforced through true stories. This book will inspire you to rise up and find new strength, courage and determination to move forward as you implement tools to recognize messages of hope from God.

My Review
I too have felt lost and abandoned and hurt.
I met Heidi when I was needing hope in my life.
Her book title called to me!

I was SO IMPRESSED with her book!
Her story is amazing and I related to it in so many ways!

Her advice is true and will really bring you HOPE in YOUR journey--
Very well written this book is one you MUST read!



About the Author
Life is full of stories. Stories that teach and inspire us to be a little better. A good story can teach a principle. Soften a heart. They are everywhere - and I notice them.

I grew up listening to stories on long desert walks with my Dad. His stories somehow defined me - made me ponder who I wanted to become.

And so I write ...

The beautiful desert of Arizona has been my home through childhood, graduation from Arizona State University, and raising my own family. I have four children and six grandchildren.

My favorite getaway is a good long hike in the mountainous regions of Arizona and Utah. My passion for hiking paves the way for quiet reflection of life's journey and compliments an eagerness to write and speak about it.

When not at the top of a mountain solving life's problems, you will find me with friends and family at the bottom of the ocean scuba diving. Between Mount Timpanogos and the Caribbean Ocean, I will always find a way to tell a story and teach a principle.

10 FUN THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT HEIDI

1. My parents live in Hyde Park
2. My favorite hike is Mount Timpanogos.
3. The inspiration to write my first book came to me in a dream.
4. I was born and raised in Arizona. Love that dry heat!
5. I conquered my fear of deep water and got certified in scuba diving.
6. I live in Cave Creek, Arizona (just north of Phoenix).
7. All four kids and six grandkids live in Utah! Just give me an excuse to visit!
8. I taught four years of early morning seminary. Love those tired teenagers!
9. My youngest child is 23 and I still haven’t finished her scrapbook.
10. I love hearts and I see them everywhere! I’m obsessed.

Three Little Words

THREE LITTLE WORDS
by Jennie Hansen, K.C. Grant, Aubrey Mace

The road to true love never did run smooth, but a few bumps along the way make it all the more thrilling. This timeless truth is showcased in Three Little Words, a charming compilation of short stories written by a trio of popular LDS romance novelists. Readers are invited to follow the journeys of three young women as they encounter love where they least expect it.

* Rescuing Bailey by Jennie Hansen
For as long as she can remember, Bailey has loved the boy next door. But despite her feelings, his schedule and his little brother keep getting in the way. Will her childhood crush finally blossom into something real, or will she discover that true love is waiting just around the corner?

* Three Little Words by K.C. Grant
The bet is simple: Elizabeth, a speech therapist, has three days to teach a country bumpkin with a drawl as thick as molasses how to speak like a gentleman. But as she gets to know her charming student, it soon becomes clear that there may be more to him than meets the ear.

* A Crying Shame by Aubrey Mace
Cassidy is in love with the idea of love, though after her most recent breakup, the possibility of finding Mr. Right seems hopeless. But when she meets a handsome classmate in her painting class, she may end up learning more about chemistry than about art.

My Review
I absolutely LOVED this book!
Three amazing authors-- three fun stories!
Grab a copy and escape for a couple of entertaining hours :)

DOUBLE PLAY
by Ranee S. Clark

Sophie Pope is devastated when she hears the news: her former boyfriend, college football star Anthony “Rocket” Rogers, is engaged to be married. Determined to win him back before he says “I do,” Sophie hatches a foolproof plan to stop the wedding. But when Rocket’s best man, aspiring baseball player David Savage, thwarts her plot, she realizes the game is up. For David, though, it’s just beginning . . . David knows that Sophie is just another pretty face, and he’s more than happy to save his best friend from her shallow advances. She’s not his type at all, so he’s baffled by his response to an awkward encounter with Donovan, another of Sophie’s former flames. Despite himself, David feels driven by an inexplicable need to protect her. Pretending to be Sophie’s new fiancĂ© leads to unexpected sparks between the pair, and soon they’re searching for excuses to spend time together. But when a curveball threatens to send them in opposite directions, will Sophie and David step up to the plate for the possibility of true love?

My Review
I adore fun romance novels like this one!
And don't you just LOVE the cover!?

Cute!
Flirty!
Sassy!
FUN!

I loved that this book not only dealt with college and dating and jobs-- But it also spent quite a bit of time on modesty and how the clothes don't make the woman--

A very fun read with something to ponder!
I highly recommend this one!

HEART STOCKINGS
by Stefanie Hewlett, Allison Foulk

Lulie and Gus are really sad that the Christmas decorations are being put away.

Then they see the Christmas stockings and they have a brilliant idea!

Why not make 'heart stockings.'

Mom and Dad are curious if this is a ploy to get more candy or more toys.

But NO!!!

The heart stockings are to be filled with LOVE~

Love Notes,
Love Coupons,
and SAS (Secret Acts of Service)

Lulie quickly puts a note in Mom's stocking and then goes and helps with the dishes.
Dad does Lulie's laundry and leaves her a note.

Read to see what Gus and Mom do and how this family "look outside themselves to find joy in helping others."

START A NEW TRADITION!
Hang heart stockings and fill January and February with love.

This book is a Deseret Book exclusive--
Also available are "Heart Stockings" all ready to hang :)
