Story Behind the Book
"I dont have the privilege of reading Gods Word in the traditional sense, but I still rely on it as my source of powerpower to persevere and thrive in a world of darkness. Without it, I would have quit a long time ago. Proverbs 6:23 says These commands and this teaching are a lamp to light the way ahead of you (NLT). While Lessons I Learned in the Dark provided principles for walking by faith, Lessons I Learned in the Light offers fuel for running with endurance."
Jennifer Rothschild, speaker, author, and recording artist, captivates audiences with her spiritual depth, storytelling, and signature wit as she travels across the country challenging her listeners to walk by faith, not by sight. Rothschild is the author of several books and Bible studies, including the popular Lessons I Learned in the Dark . She is a frequent speaker on the Women of Faith tour, and is cofounder of an online magazine for women, WomensMinistry.NET. Jennifer lives in Missouri with her husband, Philip, and their sons, Clayton and Connor.
Rothschild, a regular speaker on the Women of Faith lecture circuit, offers a
companion volume to her prior work Lessons I Learned in the Dark that reads
like a charming invitation to afternoon tea. Her gentle, pleasing style first
draws readers in and captures their imaginations. Only then does she deliver
her more powerful punches, emphasizing that Christians should live by
accountability, self-discipline and faith rather than emotions. Expounding
upon quirky daily life occurrences as a wife and mom, Rothschild blends
humorous tales with the poignant reality of being blind. Struggling with
blindness day in and day out is tough stuff, she admits, yet she believes that
faith grows best amid the thorns of life, providing more sustenance, depth,
strength and inner change than "simple deliverance" ever could. Particularly
compelling is her take on grace, which according to Rothschild is "by its very
nature unfair." According to her, "God's grace is sufficient because it is
both priceless and practical." Readers will also find spiritual provision in
chapters discussing why courage is more valuable than confidence, how hope is
life's essential ingredient and why risk taking is a no-brainer. Christian
readers, beware: while this looks like a run-of-the-mill spirituality book,
its pages contain the potential to drastically alter lives. (July) Copyright
