Sometimes you are at the end of yourself and hanging on by a thread.

Even after crushing heartbreaks, broken relationships, or challenging situations, God is at work...always. His outrageous grace never forsakes you and seeks your rescue and redemption. The truths shared in Restored will help you move forward even in those times of doubt, disbelief, and discouragement. God is to always be trusted.

What other people have to say about Restored

About Chapters 1-7

Chapter 4: Restoring Community

Life is relational.  You are not meant to go through it alone.  You need the encouragement, support, and strength of others to celebrate life and to be carried when it is too hard. Community ushers in hope, joy, and security.  Everyone needs to belong somewhere!  Let's discover how to make that happen.

Chapter 5: Restoring Relationships

Relationships can be fragile. They can be broken through offensive actions, poor decisions, and careless conduct.  Damaged relationships need to be reconciled.  The tool is forgiveness, which is at the very heart of the Gospel. Whether you need to ask for forgiveness, forgive others, or forgive yourself, forgiveness needs to be complete to restore derailed relationships. Learn how to repair grievances and to experience the joy and freedom found in reconciliation.

Chapter 6: Restoring Compassion

You are called to serve others and reach out to those in need.  Assigning yourself to take the initiative and to show up to comfort the afflicted is a great source of encouragement and hope to those in fragile places. Such acts of mercy and compassion mimic God's love for humanity.  Not sure how to be present to comfort those suffering?   Let's help direct your steps.

Another thought from Cindy...

"Serving others is an act of worship. You are not called to insulate your gifts and talents but to infiltrate them into the lives of others."
