Emily Freeman is one of my most favorite scriptural authors.
She has a way of explaining scriptures and helping me see how they apply to my life right now that resonates within my heart.
I know that she has personally gone through some very trying times and it is through those times that she turned to the Lord and to the scriptures and gained the insight she has.
How blessed we are that she is willing to share that knowledge and love with us.
All of us have challenges, trials and adversity!
We may "face obstacles, danger, oppression, and injustice."
There will be times of sadness, anger, fear, and despair.
Of one thing we can be sure...the Lord will deliver us!
We can learn to trust in the Lord like Gideon, Nehemiah, Hezekiah, Micah, and Moses and others from the Old Testament.
We can "draw strength" and courage from their stories that are found and explained in this amazingly wonderful book!
We can have the love of the Lord "written on our hearts"
This book is a treasure to be studied and pondered especially as we study the Old Testament in Sunday School next year.
This book will help you find your deliverance!

There is nothing Emily enjoys more for breakfast than a bowl of vanilla ice cream, raspberries, and chocolate chips.
