No one is granted immunity from the hardships of life - not even believers. Whether it's the death of a loved one, prolonged physical illness, or the loss of a job, suffering strikes us all.
But just as we can be guaranteed of sorrow in life, we can also count on God's comfort and redemption. In His kingdom, He has the final say on our brokenness and His plan is always to trade beauty for ashes. Dr. Stanley, well acquainted with long, dark nights of the soul, uses gentle wisdom to shed light on the tender process of being broken. He inspires hope to look ahead for the joy that awaits all who trust in the Lord during their most trying seasons.
When all is destroyed, and life seems broken beyond repair, it's time to make a trade: your ashes for His beauty.
With a combination of beautiful photography and Dr. Stanley's words, this gift book is a great resource for anyone going through a hard time.
