The desire for God's Word exploded with her new commitment, but devotional time was scarce due to the demands of a young wife and mother. So Mesu scoured the only two theology books available--children's Bible stories and her Bible. The stories she read to her daughters at night pointed her to t

“The messages of a prophet...affect the decisions of kings. The decisions of kings determine not just the course of nations but also the life and death of individuals in those countries. If we become so enamored with our own little world that we disregard the nations, we are no better than those who focus on nations and ruthlessly disregard human life.”
Mesu Andrews, Love in a Broken Vessel

“But neither the mountains nor the people can rob you of the forgiveness God has given...unless you let them.”
Mesu Andrews, Love Amid The Ashes

“Forgiveness is like an olive tree, mistress. Once it takes root, it will grow, and it’s hard to kill.”

Mesu It's good, but I had to read it in short spurts. Very troubling images conquered by God's continuous healing. It's raw but excellent.


Miralee This is the next book on my list to read. I've heard very good things about it and plan on blogging about it, as well. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
