When reading through the stories in this book I am reminded that each one of us is on a unique journey, not by ourselves, but with our Creator. It’s not about living a perfect life but living it day by day with a God whose grace can redeem us from any mistake or sorrow, can bring us back to life, and can restore us to beauty again. – Independent Contemporary Church, Single Mother, Teaching Assistant
