Publisher's Description

WHEN LIFE’S ROSY DREAMS DISSOLVE INTO DIFFICULT REALITIES THAT BREAK OUR HEARTS, GOD SHOWS THAT HE SPECIALIZES IN RESTORATION" “If in these pages you see your own life’s experience mirrored in our daughter’s, may you, too, find a personal relationship with the same heavenly Father who continues to be her strength, comfort, and joy.”” —From the foreword by Billy Graham “Warning: This book should only be read by imperfect, flawed people in serious need of God's amazing grace. Thank you, Ruth Graham, for having the courage to bare your soul and then lead others back toward God's welcoming arms.”––Philip Yancey, author of Where Is God When It Hurts? “For any who have experienced the tragedy of infidelity and wrong choices. Ruth unfolds her life, showing that the grace of God is sufficient. ––Elisabeth Elliot Gren, author of Through Gates of Splendor “You hold in your hand a tool that will help you whether you are hurting or seeking to minister to one who is hurting. By sharing openly from her own experiences of heartache and by offering practical insights founded on biblical truth, Ruth Graham has provided a resource that both equips us to pursue wholeness and leads us into the arms of the only One who can make us whole.––Dr. Gary Smalley, The author of DNA of Relationships “This book is a must-read for those who are hurting or for those who would like to be a healing agent for someone else.”––Dr. Charles Stanley, author of The Blessings of Brokenness

    A baring of the soul and era of tremendous growth
    March 10, 2015
    Once a broken heart
    In this book, Ruth lays her most difficult time of her life out for all to glean from the lessons the Lord taught her during her brokeness. I admire her for her honesty, her willingness to share her personal shame over wrong decisions and subsequent redemption.

    The lessons in this book are priceless. I love the layout of the chapters. A beautifully written manual.

    A couple reviewers have expressed the concern regarding her immature decisions, lack of accountability and 'riding on the coattails of her father's fame'. My take on this is that prior to the realization and acknowledgement of her husbands infidelities, she had led a very sheltered life and publically was always concious of her every move and how they might be interpreted by an unforgiving world. The years that followed were an era of tremendous growth on many levels and am thankful she was willing to share. I, for one, highly recommend this book and think it would be an excellent choice for a life group dicussion!!

    I was given this book by a Christian counselor to read during a time when our family was going through an enormous crisis. Hoping it would be an encouragement to my soul and spirit, instead it left me angry and confused. In her book, Ms. Graham comes across as a spoiled girl who never grew up and finds ways to place the blame for her life's struggles on everyone else. Her attitude is one of denying accountability and finding excuses for her less-than-mature behavior. I think this book - and her ministry - has received much acclaim due to her riding on the coattails of her father's fame. When I returned this book to my counselor I relayed my opinion to her. Her reply: "That's exactly what I thought, too." She no longer recommends this book for Christians - or anyone, for that matter - who are struggling with the trials that "come so that your faithof greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by firemay be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed."
