She Reads Truth: Holding Tight to Permanent in a World That’s Passing Away

20161023_135017I was so excited to see this book in my mailbox! I did the “She Reads Truth” Bible Study last year and it was awesome.

This is a really beautiful book and I will keep it on my self and read it again and again. The stories shared within the book are honest and powerful. I cried while reading many of the stories. The toughest story I read was written by Rachel. She wrote about pregnancy loss. I went through a miscarriage 3 years ago. Just typing this right now brings on the tears. It’s a sensitive subject. But, reading this story reminded me of God’s love for me.

She wants faith, hope, and love.
She wants help and healing.
She wants to hear and be heard, to see and be seen.
She wants things set right.

She wants to know what is true—not partly true, or sometimes true, or almost true. She wants to see Truth itself, face-to-face. But here, now, these things are all cloudy. Hope is tinged with hurt. Faith is shaded by doubt. Lesser, broken things masquerade as love.

How does she find something permanent when the world around her is always changing, when not even she can stay the same? And if she finds it, how does she hold on?

She Reads Truth tells the stories of two women who discovered, through very different lives and circumstances, that only God and His Word remain unchanged as the world around them shifted and slipped away. Infused with biblical application and Scripture, this book is not just about two characters in two stories, but about one Hero and one Story. Every image points to the bigger picture—that God and His Word are true. Not because of anything we do, but because of who He is. Not once, not occasionally, but right now and all the time.

Sometimes it takes everything moving to notice the thing that doesn’t move. Sometimes it takes telling two very different stories to notice how the Truth was exactly the same in both of them.

For anyone searching for a solid foundation to cling to, She Reads Truth is a rich and honest Bible-filled journey to finally find permanent in a world that’s passing away.

The stories within the book remind us that we can always find the Truth behind our stories. #sheisyou
