Weathering the Storms of Life with Grace and Hope
by Sally Clarkson
This book’s title is reflective of both its content and appeal. Most of us feel overwhelmed at times. It can be immeasurably helpful to know that we are not alone in those moments. A good book can help in processing, moving forward and feeling heard.
I love that the author of this book is about seventy years old. She is able to bring her accumulated wisdom to the page. Ms. Clarkson’s help can be looked at in the nautical terms of her title. She offers a life raft, an anchor, a life preserver…call it what you will to her readers.
Some of the subjects covered include Loneliness and Isolation; Disappointment in Marriage; Unexpected Challenges with our Children; and Be Gentle with Yourself. Each chapter includes something personal from the author’s life along with guidance, a suggested prayer, a bible quote and something to journal.
Note: This book is addressed to the Christian reader. I think that those of other faiths may also find some helpful guiding here.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.
