The picture on the cover of this book makes my brain hurt. Look at it! Ouch!
Wait a minute! Life does the same thing! Life never follows the path I marked out for it. Life often leaves me standing stripped of the expectations and longings of my heart. Life is often turned upside down. It makes my head hurt.
In those moments its so easy to slide into the negative depths of self pity. I can quickly find myself staring into the abyss of depression, clinging with all my strength to threads of hope anchored in solid ground.
Undone is filled with threads of hope. Michele never leaves you feeling like a weakling in the presence of a superhero. She takes you by the hand as a fellow weakling and points you to the source of strength that sustains her.

I don’t endorse many books, nor do I usually post a blog on Wednesday.
But my friend, Philip Yancey, has just written a powerful book based on his 2012 visits to three places of great suffering: In each place he was asked to speak and bring words of comfort and hope. You can down load his book, and read it today for FREE.
- Philip visited Japan after the devastating tsunami.
- He visited Sarajevo after a war that tore a country and it’s family apart.
- He spoke to the people of Newtown, CT after the unthinkable school shooting there.

Robert D Smith
I met Robert D Smith about five years ago. He greeted me at the door as though I was a long lost friend. I looked behind me to see if he might be talking to someone else. He was talking to me. We have been friends since that day.
Since high school Robert has worked full time to help his friend Andy Andrews craft an amazingly successful career. I had admired his drive and creativity and had come to ask his advice.
What if you could dream dreams you had never dreamed before. What if you could tear the wrapping from ideas like you once ripped paper off a Christmas gift. Remember the squeals of delight? What if you stayed up all night because you couldn’t wait to develop those new ideas into products, ministry or income potential. McNair Wilson’s new book “HATCH, brainstorming secrets of a theme park designer” recaptures that spirit and opens the possibility to all the above. NOTE: Hatch isn’t a normal book. McNair Wilson is not a normal person.
In spite of the difficulties I have faced in life, I have lived a fairy tale existence compared to the pain and loss many have had to endure.
I often wonder, when tragedy does strike, how do we deal with it? When one of my friends is suffering how should I respond? What do I say?
