Author Melissa Zaldivar talks honestly about losing everything that once defined her and how God used unexpected opportunities, like working at Orchard House, where Louisa May Alcott wrote Little Women, to spark a journey of working through her grief and encountering the all-sufficient love of Christ.
Weaving inspiring passages of Scripture and insights from Little Women into her personal story, Melissa encourages readers with her discovery that it’s when we have nothing left to offer that we can receive God’s love the most. And that’s something that can never be lost.
Readers will be reassured that God will meet them in the midst of their mess and urged to look to him for help, comfort, and strength.
A great gift for those whose faith is being tested in the face of a loss of any kind—a loved one, a job, or a relationship.
