Describe the photo or the page it links to

Promises of Hope for Difficult Times is a personal yet universal journey to find new beginnings in the face of loss or unwelcome change. Jane offers a needed reminder that God longs to show compassion and care, rest and refuge to those who hurt.
The 140 Scripture-based reflections bring hope and encouragement in the wilderness places of our lives and remind us all that in the midst of life's winters, there remains the promise of spring. A Scripture reading accompanies each of Jane's personal reflections, making this a comforting gift for those who need a daily dose of encouragement to face their pressures and problems.

Praise for Jane Kirkpatrick's Promises of Hope for Difficult Times

There are some things that only people who have lived through them can understand. She has lived and is living through them now. The more I read of her stories, the more I appreciate how she processes and shares the challenges of life.
-Kate.  www.goodreads.com

Every page will inspire you or challenge you to look at your own imperfect life and persevere. The author's observations about life are insightful, such as giving value indiscriminately to others, or learning not to judge a life by its productivity but “just because they exist.”  She speaks of  “word wounds” and the time and energy needed to heal those kinds of wounds. Kirkpatrick believes in giving hope and she does it with grace and dignity. “Giving is the yeast of life,” she writes, “it always rises more than expected and gives us more than imagined.”  You will receive the precious gift of hope as you read this beautiful devotional.  (5 Star)

Author's Insight

I wanted this book to be personal, to let people know that someone walked beside them, had experienced the frustrations, joys, anger, despair, hopelessness that caregivers can face...and that with faith, family and friends, found a way through it.
