Product Description

Jennifer Sands believed that God answers prayer. When she prayed for professional advancement, she got it. When she prayed for a mortgage approval it came. When she prayed that her terminally ill brother be allowed to live, he was. When she prayed that her husband, Jim, return home safely from work, he always did. Except once.

On September 11, 2001, Jim Sands was killed in the collapse of the World Trade Center. On that day, Jennifer's world imploded, and she suffered the first blows of a pounding spiritual firestorm that threatened to poison her faith and suffocate her relationship with God.

A Tempered Faith chronicles Jennifer Sands firsthand account of a young widow's questions, doubts, and desperate search for answers.

    A Vulnerable Expression of Loss and a Budding Faith

    The book I read this week is not a new one, but it's new to me. Jennifer is the author of a trilogy of books on faith, and this is the first one: A Tempered Faith.

    If you're not familiar with Jennifer, she is a pharmacist from New Jersey, and her husband, Jim, was killed in the World Trade Center attacks on 9/11. {Much more has happened in her life and story since that day, but this was the focus of the first book.}

    I want to mention up front that the book is not another angle of coverage of 9/11. It's not an unpacking of the events of the day from a new perspective, not a documentary on the day that changed the world. It's a story of deep love and tender grief after devastating loss.

    At the time of the attacks, Jennifer's faith was present, but immature. She prayed every day and attended church regularly, but she believed if she simply prayed, she would get what she asked for. And up to that point in her life, it seemed the tactic worked. She prayed regularly and everything turned out just as she asked - even the big things. But the morning of 9/11, she prayed for Jim's safety as he left for work, and her first big no shook everything she had ever understood about God and faith.

    A Tempered Faith follows Jennifer's journey throughout the year or so after the 9/11 attacks, from her initial devastating grief and extreme anger toward God, through her many questions and eventual gentle understanding of the truth that God loves and sustains us even when we do not understand why He has allowed tragedy to befall us.

    Jennifer introduces us to her husband, Jim, by allowing us to peek into their soul-mate marriage, and we also meet the friends God sent to her life to carry her through the hardest days she has ever known.

    While most of us are not in the group of people who would understand the loss of a loved one to a terrorist attack, Jennifer's words address loss in general and are powerfully true in giving an explanation to the debilitating levels grief can reach.

    The final chapter of the book was my favorite: a vulnerable peek into Jennifer's journal entries from the year following 9/11. After knowing the story and the timeline of her grief, questioning, and understanding, it was beautiful to watch her faith grow slowly in entry after entry. It was much like watching a baby grow through time lapse photography condensed into a few minutes. To read of her faith blossoming over the course of that year was inspiring.

    The book is an easy read, conversational, and filled with hope in the middle of tragedy. I'm looking forward to reading the second and third books in the trilogy!
