    This book speaks to real life situations that relate to everyone at one time or another. It is Bible based and Spirit filled. It is a good basis for a life's journey with God or a new discovery of God if you are a new believer. It is easy to read and chock full of rich rewards. It shows basic principles in a new light and you can feel the touch of God through this book. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to feel closer to God.

    This is a great book for any woman of any age. Her personal story makes what she has learned from it so real to others.
    I thought the back of the book's study guide had wonderful questions to do on your own or within a group.

    It seems that more often than not when circumstances spiral out of our control that God seems to be far away from us. Linda Evans Shepherd offered excellent insght in her new book, When You Can't Find God.

    From envying others, especially those who do not know God – ever done that? Believe that celebrities etc. have it all and we Christians are left with all the heartaches? Yep, me too.

    "Comfort and prosperity have never enriched the world as much as adversity has." ~ Billy Graham, quote that starts Chapter 1 of When You Can’t Find God

    To our burdens that Jesus promises to carry, our hurts He promises to heal and our bitterness He promises to take away.

    "We are all faced with a series of great opportunities brilliantly disguised as impossible situations." ~ Charles Swindoll, quote that starts Chapter 10 of When You Can’t Find God

    Linda gives us hope with her words of understanding, scripture verses and stories of how God shows His presence amidst difficulties, with real life examples from the lives of others. Ultimately peace and joy are ours if we only allow Him to bring us to ourselves to receive it with His help and power.

    "Perhaps God brings us to the end of our resources so we can discover the vastness of His."~ Neil T. Anderson, quote that starts Chapter 12 of When You Can’t Find God

    This is a wonderful book that allows us to regain our focus as we walk through difficult circumstances. We highly recommend it.

    Disclosure: I received this book in exchange for a review, but that in no way influences my thoughts and opinions - they are my own.

    It's easy to ask the question "Where is God when...?" When a mom is diagnosed with cancer and only has 2 months or less to live and has to leave behind her 2 young children, where is God? Where is God when a mother looses her firstborn child before she is even able to hold her in her arms? I think all of us are full of these questions. However, we forget that God is still there. He's still with us, drawing us closer to Him, if we will only choose to let Him come closer to us.

    This book is an encouraging book that reminds us to pray through those tough times and to find the peace and hope that only God alone can give, which also produces the joy that we find when we are resting in Him. Linda Shepherd knows this first-hand as she has walked this path in her own personal life. Her now adult daughter was in a car wreck 20 years ago and suffered severe brain damage. Linda learned that the only way to find that peace she so desperately needed was not to put aside the hard questions, but to ask them and have faith and cling to what God has said and know that He alone is in control even when we don't understand. How encouraging!

    If you've ever asked the questions "Where's God when...?" then this book's for you!

    When You Can't Find God: How to Ignite the Power of His Presence by Linda Evans Shepherd (Revell, 2011):

    If you want to trust God more, especially in the dark places of life, the new book by Linda Evans Shepherd is for you. And don't we all want to trust God more? When You Can't Find God: How to Ignite the Power of His Presence is her newest release and it offers both practical and spiritual principles coupled with her stories of how God has worked in her life and in the lives of others.

    Linda has learned to trust God in many hard places of life. Over twenty years ago, she and her daughter, an infant at the time, were in an automobile crash that severely disabled her little girl. Linda tells other riveting stories that made my faith grow stronger by knowing a loving God who uses everything for good.

    One of her most endearing stories to encourage the reader to find real joy by experiencing God's love, is of Jim, her son, when he was a toddler. After shopping in the mall, she realized how tired Jim was. She writes, “That's when Jimmy suddenly flopped to the white-tiled floor. 'I'm tired,' he said, grabbing my snow boot in an arm lock. 'Could you drag me for a while?'

    Of course, she picked him up and carried him and relates how this represents a trusting relationship with God. “We get so focused on our prayer requests that we forget he longs to have a deeper relationship with us...Just as I didin't want to drag my son down a dusty floor and into the parking lot, God doesn't want to drag us through the muck of this world. He wants to lovingly scoop us into his everlasting arms and carry us through our difficulties.” (pgs 167-168).

    When You Can't Find God is written for every Christian since there are always times when God seems distant. I also would pass this book along to any person who is open to reading about God but hasn't yet made Jesus their Lord and Savior. It's a readable, encouraging and inspirational book that makes you feel like God cares and that it is possible to trust Him more.
