When she comes across a prayer request for a husband, Lurlene Scott decides God could use a partner in matchmaking-but ends up learning a lesson of faith that could change her life. This clever story is the heart of Mixed Blessings, a wonderful first novel from author Rick Hamlin. Known for the autobiographical Finding God on the A Train, Hamlin now turns his pen to fiction for this delightful story that will fill you with the warmth only a good story can bring. ^^Funny and touching, Mixed Blessings takes you inside a small suburban church and brings you into the lives of those who work and worship there. You'll meet the devoted pastor whose sincerity and openness touches everyone around him. You'll witness the blossoming love of two unlikely people and be moved by the story of Lurlene Scott. A dedicated secretary to the pastor, Lurlene had ignored the gospel for decades, until she challenged God at his own game: answering prayers. Soon she comes to realize there is no such thing as the "crutch of faith," and that any answer to prayer she could have provided has been trumped by a loving God. ^^Mixed Blessings will bring you to a special place where lives are touched by the work of God and where people still believe in the power of prayer. Warmhearted and thought-provoking, this is a story will make you anxious for author Rick Hamlin's next novel.
