It is a powerful book to read to encourage you in the midst of life's struggles. In a world of uncertainty, life-altering events and some down right scarey times the place to find security is in God's promises.
Sheila has written a great book that will uplift you and help you trust in God's Truth and Word even more.
Keeping faith can be difficult during hard times. Sheila Walsh's The Shelter of God's Promises reassures readers of God's promises and unfaltering reliability. Each of the ten chapters are focused on a different theme: Walsh addresses promises, provision, peace, confidence, love, grace, hope, strength, more/something better and home. Whether you are feeling alone, broken, loveless or poor, The Shelter of God's Promises will life your spirits. Walsh intersperses personal narratives and in-depth Bible study throughout her book. Each chapter has a designated Bible study guide with assigned readings from the Bible and discussion questions. Walsh's book isn't just for people experiencing difficult times. Readers at any stage of life will benefit from its messages. Although this is a useful tool for Bible studies, Walsh's personal anecdotes occasionally distract her message. However, the positive features of the book outweigh its faults.

If you have ever wondered how you would make it through the next day/hour/minute, grab your Bible and this book. Ms. Walsh knows where you are - maybe not the specific details - but she has been there, and she can help you through your "stuff." This has been a very valuable resource for me in a time when I truly wasn't sure I would make it through.
I have just started teaching a class on this book. It is an excellent refresher for those that already know the Lord and a Great study for the newly saved. Gods promises nver change or fail. This study reenforced the promises of God in our lives. I would highly recommend this as a group or an individual study. No matter how many times we read a passage God shows us what we need to see at that time in our lives.
