Book Review--The Uses of Adversity

Have you ever wondered why life is so hard? Ever felt abandoned by God? This book is for you. It's a super short, but super powerful read. It helped me more fully understand that God is always there for us, but because we live in an imperfect world, we are going to suffer losses and pain. I used to hear someone say, "Poor God,  he gets blamed for everything." But the fact is, God loves us and wants to help us. He sent us here to learn. How can we learn without pain? I think it is hard for Him to watch us sometimes. But like the wise parent who understands the importance of allowing their kids to fail, of allowing them to struggle through their problems, He watches anyway. Ready to help whenever we ask.  Here it is on Amazon.
