FLOURISH Finding Purpose in the Unknown and Unexpected Seasons of Life by Grace Wabuke Klein, Foreword by BOB GOFF from Hatchette Book Group. This guide to living well through all the seasons of life encourages readers to trust God's timing and hold onto hope in the periods of waiting.
The trials of life can wear us down.
Unexpected events force us to face a new reality and unanswered prayers lead us
to a growing frustration about why God doesn’t intervene. We wonder if anything
good can come out of this painful, dark, winter season.
Grace Wabuke Klein knows that there is purpose in our darkest days and seasons of waiting. In Flourish, Grace meets the reader in their heartache, disappointment, and pain and gives encouragement and a fresh perspective on the winter seasons we all go through, as well as practical steps to not just survive but to find purpose in the unknown and unexpected.
- Fall is a time of release—a necessary season of letting go of offenses, unhealthy relationships, hurts, bad habits, toxic friendships, pride, unforgiveness and other heart issues before we can ever move on to the next season
- Winter is a time of unexpected challenges and unknown futures—yet lessons learned in life’s storms are deep and full of growth to shape us and make us stronger.
- Spring is a time of new things that require us to be open to new experiences, people, ideas, and perspectives—stepping out into the unknown and uncomfortable.
- Summer is a time when everything is flourishing—we clearly see how each season cultivated a deeper level of faith and spiritual muscles, developing our character and perseverance.
Grace discovered there is value and unseen gifts in each season, but only in the hard seasons and storms of life are vital spiritual disciplines developed. Flourish connects with the reader in the tension and storms of life to bring a word of hope.
My Opinion: This book gave a great insight and a different point of view on how to look at things and we all need to grow and learn along with how to handle life situations.
