Excellent Read!
5 stars By Monique, Dec 01 2018
This is another amazing book written by Lysa. She is so raw, honest, and vulnerable as she talks about the many trials that she has faced in life. Lysa shares how she saw God's faithfulness through it all and how those times not only strengthened her relationship with God, but also with her family. 
I would recommend this book to those who may be struggling with what their current situation is, where they may currently be on a different journey than what they had originally planned.
