Somewhere in the midst of my reeling with God, doubting his goodness and questioning hisroleBrazos-beautiful-disaster1as provider, my friend Marlena Graves offered me these words: “God did not lead you to this desert to die.” Though the words offered little comfort about our current situation (Godlead us to adesert, after all. And we’d have time spend some time in thatscorching,barren place), they did offer pro...

I liked this. And darn it if I didn't cry at the end. It's interesting--a nice picture of the 1950 and some horrifying events I'd never heard of. It just got a bit unwieldily. So many points of view. It all came together at the end, but it took some ...more

Mansions? Mysteries? What's not to love! Totally enjoyed this. Got thrown by a couple of tiny weirdnesses (like, Braeden had a Doberman Pincher two years after Herr Dobermann "invented" them? Seemed unlikely. But whatever.) A fun, fast read. Hoping f ...more

“We can see God in our stories. Which is why we’re called to be storytellers. To tell others the stories of our lives—about the things we’ve endured and survived, the areas where we’ve failed and succeeded, and the times we’ve questioned and doubted. Because in all of these stories, others can see what God has done for us. And we can see it too.”
Caryn Rivadeneira, Known and Loved: 52 Devotions from the Psalms
