My dear friend, Cindy Brinker Simmons, embodies the spiritual gift of exhortation like no other person I have known. This book chronicles the testimony of a woman whose faith has been tested greatly and yet developed deeply. She writes as I have watched her live – with a contagious courage and confidence in an omnicompetent God. Her passion is to inspire others to that same faith and hope. Rooted in the definition of the word restore are the ideas of return, repair, and renew. All of these speak of the work God desires to perform in our lives, and these are the ever-available gifts of God this book is all about.
