Susan Barrett5 Stars Out Of 5Raw, Real, and CourageousJanuary 29, 2019Susan BarrettQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4Wow, this book. I've followed TerKeurst's journey and read her books for the past several years, and the raw, vulnerable honesty and elegance with which she writes are unmatched. I knew this book would be one written from a place of pain, but one that would bring hope, and I wasn't wrong. It's a lifeline, one from a person in deep pain to a person in deep pain. Its honesty is unparalleled and so, so appreciated. I admire the courage and authenticity it took to write such a manuscript, and even more so to write with such hope and faith. It's Not Supposed to Be This Way is a moving read, one that I would recommend to anyone who has ever experienced pain or disappointment in their lives, so, to anyone. There are parts that made me laugh out loud, and parts that spoke to the deepest parts of my soul. I loved that the chapters ended with a recap, some questions to apply the material to the reader's personal life, and verse references to read. It was practical, helpful, and beautiful.

Dana5 Stars Out Of 5Healing and EncouragingJanuary 10, 2019DanaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book blessed me and contributed to healing after going through a difficult season with depression. Lysa's words were authentic, transparent, heartfelt and more. The "Going to the Well" summary at the end of each chapter reminds me of transformative Scriptures to read and bullet point thoughts to keep in mind as well as reflective journaling questions to ponder. After I read it, I gave it to a friend recovering from a divorce. This book will make a great gift but for those wondering, "Where is God?" this book is for you! Read, breath and be blessed.
Ollie5 Stars Out Of 5FantasticDecember 25, 2018OllieQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"What if the worst parts of your life are actually gateways to the very best parts you'd never want to live without?" - that is a tough question to ponder...but liberating when you realise how right the statement is. This book is all about trusting our God who is good ALL the time. Trusting God to turn what the enemy means for evil, for our good.
Lysa TerKeurst is well qualified to write this book. She has gone through a lot so I really respected her view on this subject. She did an amazing job explaining suffering in this book, it was fantastic. I love that everything she wrote, she backed up with scripture. It was both encouraging, comforting and personal. Her dust to clay analogy is one I will always remember. Thank you Lysa.
"Take this Lord, and shatter it just right, so I can be made stronger, more beautiful, and able to withstand fires as never before. I believe that You see things I cannot see. And You have eventual good in mind" - Amen
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
