Shanan Strode, and her husband Bill, understand what it is like to search for meaning and purpose in life's painful struggles. Shanan knows it is God's grace that heals us from even the most painful parts of our past. She has seen, first hand, how God can transform shattered lives and tattered marriages into powerful stories of hope and healing. Shanan also understands the deep need we, as broken sinners, have for mentorship and encouragement from other Christians. Shanan knows how important it is to realize you matter to God, and that God considers your brokenness so very beautiful because it points us back to our need for salvation in Jesus Christ. It is her hope that these books will open doors and help develop true Christian friendships that challenge and support us as we seek to be more like Christ.
