Wow! I stumbled upon this book by "chance" some would say. Or, did God say, "Ken, you need to read this." I think it was the latter, because Arends has such a refreshing style and a way with the pen. In this book, she admits to doubts at times and her transparency is so real, you just want to pick up the phone and call her.

One must stand within the dark
to better see the stars
face the storms head on

climb the rugged peaks
to hear the rocks cry out
creation lends perspective
to times of faith and doubt
take the time to listen
with a spirit prone to hear
be still and know that He is God
the glorious King is near

Carolyn is a great person and great artist. This is a nice collection of her stories. You might also listen to 'Any Given Sunday'...a song for every church.
