The One Year Book of Hope was first recommended to me by a friend on the Hannah's Prayer forums. I've started to use it this year, sometimes reading one entry a day, sometimes many more. It is a year's worth of devotionals about finding hope in the midst of heartache. It is written by Nancy Guthrie, who along with her husband work with the ministry GriefShare. Nancy and her husband have one living son and have lost a daughter and another son in infancy. She knows what it is to hurt and to question God, and her book doesn't hesitate to deal with the tough issues, including challenging us to make good choices in our grief and not to take the path to bitterness. If you are struggling to find hope, I urge you to get your hands on this book!
