“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” James 1:27James 1:27
For the past several years, women in the Mission at Kern County have overcome every sort of loss and grief with help from Sheryl Giesbrecht’s weekly GriefShare and Freedom In Christ training. And in May, women with children got an extra boost from the Mission–their own housing in the Lee & Krystyna Jamieson Recovery Home for Women & Children. Now Sheryl hopes to stock the Recovery Home with children’s books.
On Saturday, July 21,
Beginning at 6:00 pm, Sheryl will be on hand to meet book-fair participants and to sign copies of her most-recent hope-filled book, It’ll Be Okay: Finding God When Doubt Hides the Truth.
In this latest book, Sheryl encourages readers not to be afraid to doubt. It’s hard to keep praying or walking forward in faith when we don’t get answers or see God’s guiding hand. Difficult times often cloud our perspective. Does God see me? Does God hear me? Does God care? Christians are afraid to admit to having doubts—even to themselves—because they confuse doubt with unbelief.
“If “doubting God” is your guilty secret, reading It’ll Be Okay will slay the guilt as you discover how God wants to use your doubt as a pathway to deeper faith,” writes Connie Cavanaugh, speaker and author of From Faking It to Finding Grace: Discovering God Again When Your Faith Runs Dry.
