About the Book
Often times we don't see the beauty in our brokenness or the tragedies that we experience in our lives. Does this ring true for you? Are you having trouble seeing God in your trials? Are you asking God how is this going to work out for my good? If so, the good news is God has a way of using what would seem to kill us, destroy us, make us give up and throw in the towel to bring about restoration and wholeness that will bring Him Glory. In this book collaboration, men and women share their stories of, grief, sobriety, barrenness, health challenges, divorce and more. You will see how God took them from Tragedy to Triumph and how these stories will bless you, renew your hope and remind you that God is the God of Restoration.
