Author Bio

Jane Kirkpatrick is a writer of both fiction and nonfiction and a lively and humorous speaker for conferences, women's retreats, fundraisers, and workshops. In addition to her historical fiction, which dramatizes pioneer life, her book Homestead relates, with love and laughter, her own family's modern-day struggle to catch a dream in the Oregon Territory.

Editorial Reviews

"As Jane has offered us a glimpse into some of the yearnings of her heart, she has again opened the scriptures for us, and has shown us in her unique way how we also can be nourished by God's Word.
"This is very touching and resourceful little book. It is a devotional that draws us back again and again to glean more treasures that await those who trust in God's promises of help during difficult and stressful times."
--Loris Webb

"Promises of Hope in Difficult Times is a wonderful book of encouragement and one that I will reread often. Jane shares her life in such a way that I am encouraged in my own.  Struggling through my own mother's Alzheimer's journey, I can find patience and comfort in Jane's words.  My daily walk through life's unexpected land mines is easier as Jane reminds me of God's presence, care and love."
--Marea Stone

"Every now and then someone with talent and wisdom writes a book that is so necessary, so timely we realize this was the book we'd been waiting for, though we didn't know it.  With grace, humility, and a transparency Kirkpatrick invites us to walk with her through her draws and valleys.  An old Jewish proverb says:  The only prerequisite for prayer is a broken heart.  This book is a prayer for the broken hearted and a promise of hope."
--Gina Ochsner

"This devotional could not have come at a better time.  Stricken with some new physical challenges and having a husband in constant back pain, I could relate to Jane's stories and emotions. Jane's devotional reminds us that we are okay in God's eyes and of His never ending love for us.  I can't wait to share this book with others."
--Jeanie Mhyre

    I have long been an avid fan of Ms. Kirkpatrick's historical fiction novels. This is the first of her non-fiction books I read, and I must say it was amazing!

    The author lays her heart open wide and becomes vulnerable and transparent in sharing her very private struggles in being a caregiver to her husband. I applaud her courage to do so and help thousands of other facing the same challenges.

    Just one year before my husband died my mother passed away. I had cared for her in my home for 4 years. When I received the book last year I had no idea I would lose my precious husband just a few months later. While his health issues did not require me to give him the same care as my mother, there were still intense responsibilities and physical/emotional demands that brought about a exhaustion and discouragement. I never dreamed when it came in the mail what a great source of comfort it would be to me those nights I lay in bed crying.

    Each short devotional started with a scripture and must say each one was just what I needed at the moment. I didn't just read the scripture; I read the entire chapter it was contained in. Then Ms. Kirkpatrick would share a personal story of her experiences. She was completely honest about how the fatigue and stress sometimes brought about feelings of exasperation, anger, and at times even resentment. I had experienced some of those at one time or another in caring for my mother, and was struggling with guilt I could not reconcile. She helped me realize that I was not some horrible person for having them. She offered hope through God's word and sharing her most intimate feelings and struggles.

    This book is a must read for all those being a caregiver and all the struggles and confusion that go with it. This would make an excellent gift for anyone you know who is a caregiver. It is a small book but very powerful.

    I would like to thank Jane Kirkpatrick for the opportunity and privilege to review this book.

    I received this book free from the author. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

    Here is a link to her web page. I hope you will go and check out her other wonderful books. http://www.jkbooks.com/

    This book has numerous personal stories from the life of the author Jane Kirkpatrick. She is very open about her own private struggles and difficulties and offers lessons she has learned while dealing with life. The entries are short and all have some kind of lesson you can glean from to help you throughout your day. I gave this book 5/5 stars. I liked how easy the entries where to read. I would actually call this a devotional book as each one started with a verse and they were very short and made for quick reads. I would recommend this as a gift book for anyone going through a difficult time or as a devotional book!

    I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
