    Love Letters from the Edge: Meditations for Those Struggling with Brokenness, Trauma, and the Pain of Life by Shelly Beach and Wanda Sanchez is a book consisting of 12 weeks of meditations for five days every week. Each devotion consists of letter to God, an answer from God, some journal options, and a prayer to say.

    The book is designed for those who have been through PTSD. I would say anyone who has had something extremely upsetting in their lives would benefit. The book speaks to the deep places in your heart and gives you a glimpse of the incredible love of God as a caring Father. The authors of the book understand pain and are able to speak with authority on this topic.

    The appendix is very helpful and consists of excellent resources like how to talk to your doctor, scripture affirmations for those hurting, helpful books & resources, and suggestions for spouses, the church, & friends. I was very impressed with all it covered.

    I highly recommend "Love Letters from the Edge!

    Review Title: God's Love Transcends Despair on the Brink of Disaster (review of Love Letters from the Edge by Shelly Beach and Wanda Sanchez)

    Reviewer: Janice S. Garey'

    ***** 5 Stars

    This book is quite different in its healing ways from other books I have read. The structure is part devotional and part workbook. I like the way it first communicates the pain and suffering from various traumatic events, and then offers a personal response, as God would respond, in a letter format based on scripture and what is revealed in the Bible of God's love for His children.

    The depth of pain and situations that brought it on are numerous and seem to try to cover the most common types of occurrences that could produce a PTSD reaction. Parts of the stories are definitely hard to read because they are so personal in expressing the pain, rejection, humiliation and other emotions of hurting people. Those who are not in this type of pain sometimes don't want to hear such stories to share in the grief of others. But that is not the way of Christ. He took on the sins of the world as His burden. He knew the worst so He could bring salvation and work out Father God's plan to turn bad things to good for those who love God and are called to His purposes.

    Christians, who are sincere in their faith and desire to be like Christ, will benefit from reading this book to be able to help others in the depths. For those who have experienced the traumatic events first hand, this book is God sent as a help in trouble times. No one likes to feel alone in their pain, and this book will cure the sense of loneliness in depths because it will show that someone else has been there and knows what it is like, and even better, it communicates the presence of God in the painful suffering times. It helps to answer that age old question of, "If God exists, how can He let such bad things happen?"

    I received this book from bookfun.org in exchange for an honest review. I highly recommend this book to those who are in the midst of suffering, and to those who want to be following in the ways of Christ by being a help to those in trouble.

    "Love Letters from the Edge, Meditations for those struggling with brokenness, trauma and the pain of life" is exactly what the title says. This book is set up with individual daily readings, short letters (cries to God) which are quick easy reading, but pack a powerful punch. The topics are deep, and even painful depending on where you are emotionally and spiritually. But, the book doesn't stop with the letter, it goes on to have another daily letter. A letter written by the authors, from the viewpoint of God, which is full of love, understanding, warmth, and acceptance. Each daily reading also has a Bible verse, a short prayer and some bits of wisdom and a few short questions to encourage further thought and prayer.

    I believe this book will be helpful to those that are hurting, especially with past traumas. Authors Shelly Beach and Wanda Sanchez have filled this book with love and understanding for the hurting. They have included information about Post Traumatic stress Disorder, a section about how to help hurting friends, and scripture affirmations. This little book, "Love Letters from the Edge," contains many helpful tools. If one allows God to work in their lives, I believe this book will help them to find healing and forgiveness.

    I received this book from The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.

    This 12-week devotional program is written by women for women. Both authors suffered atrocities as children. Victims of post traumatic stress disorder and its influences on the body, mind and spirit, have inspired this beautifully composed book of daily devotions in the form of letters to God, and God's letters in response. Scripture appropriate to the message is presented at the beginning of each day's reading with a time for reflection and prayer at the conclusion of the days letters. Weekends are times for reflection, journaling, drawing, or in some way working through the messages from the previous week.

    The daily messages are loving and reassuring as the scripture reveals God's acceptance and assurance to those who have suffered great losses or trauma in their lives. This book is an answer to prayer for women plagued with the aftermath that trauma, loss, abuse, etc., have left in their lives. The first appendix describes and answers questions regarding post traumatic stress, and common therapies. Further appendices offer helpful resources, and scriptural affirmations that I personally found to be excellent daily verses to apply in my own life. This is an impressive approach to guiding women through the most difficult situations in a positive and hopeful Christian approach. I highly recommend "Love Letters from the Edge!" This would make an excellent gift.

    "Love Letters From The Edge" is a twrlve week book devotional of meditations designed to help every woman to express their questions and frustrations to God. This book includes journaling questions, letter writing, art projects, and other activities designed to help woman move toward healing and deeper relationship with God. The book is written from two perspectives. First half of each entry is a letter from the brokenhearted to her Father God. The second half is God's love letter of response to His wounded child who has been hurt by sexual abuse, violence, abandonment, victimization, or other painful life issues. I love this book because of it's very personal and intimate conversations from daughter to Father God. Authors Shelly and Wanda have written a very beautiful, honest, intimate book, bringing beauty from the ashes of their own personal painful stories. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has ever been hurt or has suffered traumatic events in their life. This beautiful heart worming book will deepen your relationship with God and help you understand His Heart, Grace and Mercy. If you are a woman who needs deep healing from past scars this book is for you. Thank you for an opportunity and a privilege to share my thoughts and feelings toward this amazing and awesome book.
