The sub-title of this book is 'building memorials of faith from financial crisis.'
And WOW! What helps this book gives...
Even if the only thing you get out of this book is to know that you are not alone in your trials...it will be enough...
The author tells her own story and shares with us stories from other families...
AMAZING stories of people who were let go from their jobs because of the recession and who, with the help of the Lord, persevered, moved forward and strengthened their faith.
Sometimes the families went months or even years before finding a steady job.
Sometimes families were torn apart as the husband moved to take a new job and the wife was left behind to try to sell the house in the falling economy.
Sometimes the husband found a new job to only be let go from that job leaving him facing once again the pain and depression from not being able to provide for his family.
Many times the families were given gifts of food and money.
Always the families found greater testimony in the Lord's tender mercies as they built memorials of faith.
My favorite quote/scripture from the book:
"But if from thence thou shalt seek the Lord thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all they soul. When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the Lord thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice, (For the Lord thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them." ~ Deuteronomy 4:29-31
A FANTASTIC book if you are going through a financial crisis!
A PERFECT book if you know someone else who could use your help but until now didn't know how to help them.
This book will give you insights in so many things...
