Publisher's Description

What happens when you lose your religion? Kendra Fletcher, homeschooling mom of eight, took pride in having it all together—the right schooling, the right theology, the right church. Everything was "right." Then it all fell apart. Three of their children were taken to the brink of death in a period of eighteen months. As wave after wave of crisis hit their family, they learned that getting religion "right" wasn’t a good substitute for a living relationship with a loving God. As they learned about their misplaced identities and false hope, they found that religion couldn’t save them–only Jesus. Only Jesus gives the grace we need to survive and thrive. Only in Jesus will our lives overflow with his grace, love, and mercy–spilling out over our families like the life-giving good news it is meant to be.

More than a memoir, Lost and Found is a call to give up those things that hold us in bondage and find the overwhelming grace and freedom of the cross. Woven through the life-changing stories that forever altered Kendra Fletcher’s family is an encouragement to readers to find their value, worth, significance, hope, and identity in Christ alone.

Gripping true story of how God heals physically and spiritually.
The difference between the gospel and merely being religious explained simply and clearly using one family’s story.
Clear direction on how to live with freedom and joy despite challenging circumstances.

    Lost and Found provided a fascinating insight into one womans disturbing experiences within the US purity culture and homeschool movement. It shows how Jesus can be lost in a church bubble where doing things right is the most important thing, where grace was forgotten in the quest for performance. As she says:

    Its easier to follow a checklist and check off all the correct boxes than to listen to the gentle, faithful leading of the Holy Spirit.

    But something was missing for me. The book description promised to show me *how* God used these events. I couldnt see the how. I saw the whatthe almost unbelievable (and ungodly) control present in her previous church, and the three health crises.

    I saw the result, but I dont see how she got from A to B. How did God speak to her? What caused her to change her view? How can others in similar situations use her experiences to get closer to God, to understand our freedom in Christ? We cant imitate her journeyno one in their right minds is going to recommend running over a five-year-old as a way to get right with God.

    Despite these gaps, Lost and Found was a fascinating read, and shared a message many Christians need to hear. I dont live in the US, and Lost and Found highlighted theological superiority issues within the US church that may well have always been there, but which the omnipresence of social media now highlight for us all to see.

    It seems to me that a lot of these views and actions are the opposite of a good Christian witnessas Kendra Fletcher illustrates so well. This book should be read as a challenge to the US church to focus on obedience to Jesus rather than on internal differences over theological trivialities.

    Thanks to New Growth Press, Litfuse Publicity and NetGalley for providing a free ebook for review. Which is ironic: I reviewed an electronic copy, but there doesn't appear to be an ebook version on sale.

    Sometimes we make life so complicated. But really it all boils down to knowing and following Jesus. Lost and Found: Losing Religion, Finding Grace is a powerful reminder to plant our identity in Jesus Christ alone rather than our roles in life or what we do or "how well" we feel we are doing. This book draws you into a challenging season in Kendra's life that ended up blessing her far more than she could have imagined as she found the things that she had based her identity on take blow after blow only to find that Jesus carried her through and used it to remind her that HE was enough. Want to know true love? JESUS. Want to walk in freedom? Find encouragement here.

    Kendra shares her story and her heart in such a way that there is no way you cannot empathize with her and yearn for the peace she has found and the relationship she has found with God. I found myself in tears so many times throughout this books and so many moments of holding my breath, just praying and hoping that things would turn out okay. Christ suffered the ultimate, the ultimate hurt, and He gave His life for us in order that we can spend eternal life in Heaven. However, on Earth we get so caught up in living life "right," living life how we believe others expect us to be living or expectations that we hold for ourselves while in reality it is not what Christ has intended for us. "Lost & Found" is such an inspiring read that it is impossible to not be moved by Kendra's story and do some soul-searching on your own.

    Kendra tells the story of how herown life changed by tragic incidents from her own experiences. She tells of dealing with events that she thought was what the good believer should be doing, as the world tells us to do to be a good Christian. She finds that it is not about what society wants you to believe, it is about what is in your heart and your belief in Jesus. It is all about grace!

    This is a great book for all of us that feel the pressure of doing what you are supposed to do because that is what the church or how social groups expect us to be. It really shows a new side of how it is all about your own belief of putting Jesus first and really having him in your heart. I really enjoyed this book and how Kendra shared her pain and then guides you down a path for you to say, "Yes" I have experienced that.... it all makes sense now and you will not feel alone. This is a really great story that hits you and makes you think and change for finding Jesus to know what your meaning is in life..... great book.
