Does Grace Grow Best in Winter? is designed to address the issue of suffering from the standpoint of the sovereigny of God. Since we believe that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love Him, who are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28), we intend to ask the question, "How does God intend suffering to work for His children's good?" God doesn't waste the suffering of His children, so how does He use suffering? In what ways do we grow in suffering? How do we respond to suffering?
What is suffering for? What does it look like from the standpoint of God's sovereignty? The startling conclusion: we need to learn to suffer in order to mature in faith.
