9781586603007: God Allows U-Turns: True Stories of Hope and Healing

We all make wrong choices, wrong decisions, and wrong turns in our lives at some time or another. The good news is that God allows U-turns. With His love, forgiveness, and redemption, we can turn around and get going again in the right direction. This inspirational, encouraging book is filled with true stories of people from all walks of life who have made U-turns in their lives. These stories show how faith in God can inspire, encourage, heal, and give hope. Many of them will make you laugh, and some will make you cry. From Tales of Triumph to Life Lessons to Faith and Forgiveness-- all share the very personal message that God works every day in each of our lives. Even when we're going in the wrong direction, God is faithful to remind us that we can turn around and get on course again with His help and with His road map, the Bible.

About the Author:

Allison Gappa Bottke has worked, over the past two decades, as a professional fund-raiser for non-profit organizations and as a freelance writer. Many readers may also recognize her as one of the country's first full-figure fashion models. Allison makes her home in southern Minnesota where she and her entrepreneurial husband live on a twenty-eight acre farm.

From Publishers Weekly:

This is no run-of-the-mill, cheesy inspirational book. Even the most cynical reader will find the introduction, in which Bottke describes her husband's transformation from a loving man into a wife-beating brute who almost killed her, gripping. She then describes the equally dramatic way God transformed her life. The essays that follow are just as moving, if not always quite as gut-wrenching. Candace Carteen's loving contribution describes her father's struggle with Parastremmatic Dwarfism and her own struggle to love and accept him. In "The Nativity Scene at Easter," Cindy Appel offers a simple meditation on the connections between Easter and Christmas. Susan Fahncke shares a snapshot of her husband signing "I love you" to his deaf baby son. Chapter Four, "Angels Among Us," offers four essays about seeing God's messengers in ordinary folks. This is not a book to read through in one sitting the bite-sized chapters should be savored one or two at a time, like chocolates from a sampler. Readers will enjoy this volume and eagerly await not just future anthologies by the same editors, but essays and devotions by the dozens of contributors they will discover here. Christians will want to pass this book along to their nonbelieving friends, and they will want to keep a copy for themselves.
