two 1/2 yrs ago, i became chronically ill, a single mom of a son and daughter in college. after working for 35 yrs, all my plans came to a halt, and my life and my kids' lives went topsy turvy! my kids had to take care of me! i was an emotional wreck. there are so many of us out there. enter, Linda Shepherd's book, When you don't know what to Pray. That book made a tremendous difference in my life, and now this second book i just read, When You Can't Find God, made another big difference in my life, both for the good! i am still very sick; however, i am emotionally better, i have a beautiful relationship with God. the author shares her own life experiences in a way that we can all relate too. she puts beautiful words to prayer, and i love the bible study/discussion questions portion of the book. you don't need a group, you can go thru these by yourself if you would like, as i am, to get even more out of this book. i recommend this book highly! i am re-reading it myself, and it has become a welcome addition to my bedside reading!
