Practical Ways to Empower Faith During Difficult Time
Using a storytelling style and biblical truth to encourage practical aspects of faith, Julie Kloster, Christian freelance writer and speaker from Sycamore, IL,
investigates ways to empower faith during difficult times. Written with compassion, honesty, and truth, this book explores the deeper questions
of faith that haunt us. Why does a loving God allow pain and suffering? How do sorrow and grief fit in with the biblical understanding that God has a good plan for our lives? Does God care about our pain?
Through practical suggestions, encouraging stories, and Scripture, Kloster gently encourages readers to focus on grace, peace, joy, and hope to empower faith during sorrow and pain.
