Book Description

July 1, 2011
Just after her thirteenth wedding anniversary, Christina Schofield woke up groggy and disoriented, surrounded by nurses in a hospital. She and her husband had hit a gravel patch while on their motorcycle and crashed into a ditch. With the exception of a concussion, she was fine. But Allen had broken his neck. He was now a quadriplegic.

With her entire life flipped upside down, she began an astonishing journey of tenacious faith amid increasing doubt. Full of dark, silent hours and a woman's honest questioning of the God she thought she knew, this is also a story full of miraculous answers to prayer and head-scratching, awe-inspiring encounters with her loving Lord.

With candid warmth and transparency, Christina shows readers that even in their darkest hours, God's goodness shines through.

My take on this book:
While out riding their motorcycle Christina Schofield and her husband Allen  have an accident that changes their lives forever. In this memoir she shares how this tragedy transformed their lives.

it's always inspiring to read how God works in the lives of others. In this story the author tells her story in such a down to earth way making her easy to connect with. It was so easy to understand why she struggled with faith, after all her world was turned upside down. As the author reveals her story, it is easy to understand how she grappled with her faith. After all her world was turned upside down. Her struggles with faith ultimately lead her to  a greater walk with God. 

A complimentary copy of this book was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
