    Courage for the Unknown Season

    Monday, January 22, 2018

    We have all had unknown seasons in our Christian walk and I’m sure we could all write a book on those unknown seasons and how we dealt with them or what we learned.

    I was made aware of the book Courage for the Unknown Season at a Conference I attended last fall and because 2017 had been a tough year for me with some unexpected deaths in my family, I felt this book would be good for me. And it has been!

    Below is a brief description of the book that I want to encourage you to add to your collection.

    You can make it through your unknown seasons. The changing seasons of life may leave you wondering what you’re supposed to do next. Perhaps your child has broken your heart or your spouse has died or an unexpected diagnosis has sent you reeling. The “unknowns” are different for each of us, but the question we ask is the same: How am I going to make it? In the midst of difficult seasons, we all need the courage to get through and the hope to find our way home.

    Jan Silvious offers wisdom and practical insights from her own life experience. Whether you’re struggling to find joy in the midst of grief or figuring out how to make the most of “right now,” Jan comes alongside you with a seasoned perspective, a quiet wit, and an unquenchable faith, giving you confidence and hope in the face of the unknown.

    I believe this book will be an encouragement to anyone that reads it and a resource you can recommend to those you are ministering to that are going through those unknown seasons. I love the subtitle for the book “Navigating What’s Next with Confidence and Hope.” I pray it will be a blessing to you as it has been to me.
