When Life and Beliefs Collide

Sooner or later, life's difficulties bring every Christian woman to God's doorstep with questions too personal to ignore. "Why does God let me go through such painful circumstances?" "Why does he seem indifferent to my prayers?" Carolyn raises a long-overdue call for us to think seriously about what we believe about God and demonstrates how practical and down to earth knowing God can be.
