Much in life can cause us pain and suffering: physical illness, the death of a loved one, the betrayal or abandonment of a spouse, the rebellion of a child, the loss of a job, the breakup of a relationship, and so much more. This Today’s Christian Woman download features the wisdom of those who’ve suffered far beyond what I’ve experienced in my life so far—the illness and death of children, the repercussions of violent crime, the prison of deep depression. Their candid stories of heartache and their powerful insights about spiritual growth will encourage you—maybe even more than you think is possible in your current state of pain.
A collection of Bible-based articles and resources to use for yourself or with a group of other women.
