When a parent hears that their child has a disability, hearts and hopes are often broken. But faith doesn’t have to be. In Unbroken Faith, Dianne Dokko Kim comes alongside you as a fellow special needs parent to help you reconcile the premise of a good God with the devastating realities of raising a disabled child. Kim courageously articulates deep-seated, unspoken doubts and fears you may have but are afraid to voice: Will my child still have a full life? Can I do this? Where is God in all this? As you are adjusting to your new normal, Kim’s biblical-based encouragement will help you understand that you are not alone, that God gets it, and that God’s Word is entirely relevant to the raw and messy yet hallowed spaces of special needs parenting.

Divorce can be a sensitive topic for Christians. After all, a husband and wife are supposed to be "one flesh." Yet even in the church, divorce rates continue to be substantial. And women are desperate for biblically based guidance, encouragement, and hope--not to sweep their pain under the rug and pretend broken vows don't exist but to know that complete healing is possible. Rebecca Mitchell knows this because she has experienced divorce firsthand. Her marriage crumbled after twenty-five years, and she went through every stage of grief. But one day she realized she needed to stop being trapped by the past and move forward. She refused to accept the role of victim. Her journey to healing and her experience leading a support group in her home church led to a conviction that others could be helped in the same way: through engaged community, biblical self-care, and compassionate reflective practices. This unique book covers topics such as depression, loneliness, forgiveness, hope, and even joy. Each of the twelve chapters includes five days of devotionals and journaling questions. From Broken Vows to Healed Hearts leads readers through the process of realizing that brokenness is a stage, not an identity. Mitchell encourages women to maintain hope for healing, to be patient with the time recovery takes, to be committed to community, and, above all, to seek God.
