This book contains a series of short stories where the authors open the doors of their lives, sending the reader on an emotional journey that allows them to relate personally and broaden their empathy for others in similar situations. They share, through every day accounts, how they discover God’s uplifting hand.
First as a newlywed and then as a young mother, Rebekah awakens to the daily light that comes from realizing how often and simply the Lord touches her life. Jeni nurtures a child with special needs and learns that strength and support are only a prayer away. Elizabeth forges a new path towards renewal and regeneration after she exits the roller coaster ride of her spouse’s addiction. Faith discovers the beauty of reminders from a loving Heavenly Father that she has worth and the precious gift of agency. Dawn opens her mind to the understanding that no matter what happens peace can abound and everything will work out.
I love reading non-fiction books where you can learn about a person and why they are who they are. This one is that, times 5, there are sections by 5 different women. Each of these women face different challenges in different ways. I loved that!
This book is written in a different way than most books. There are 5 sections. And each section many little almost journal entries or blog posts. I loved that! It’s really quick and easy to read this book with it written that way.
One thing that really touched me about this one was the way each of the authors included Heavenly Father in their lives. They are all women of faith and they were able to learn and grow through each of their different challenges. All the women faced their challenges with faith, knowing that they have a loving Heavenly Father who wants what is best for them and their families.
If you enjoy reading non-fiction books or learning about the lives of others, you’ll love this little book. It really is inspiring!
I was given a copy of Upheld as a gift from the authors. All opinions are my own.
