In this book, Shannon tells the poignant story of a sudden and painfully dark night in the life of her family. The tragic loss of her youngest sister brought unexpected heartache. Heartache that was so painful, that it seemed as if the sun had ceased shining. This is the story of a devastating struggle that ends in tragedy. A struggle that had already brought her family to their knees in prayer, but now brings them to lay on our faces in spiritual agony.
Shannon deals with some deep questions in this book. What do you do when your hurt is so deep that you don't feel like praying? Where do you go when you can't see? We are often advised to praise our way through pain, but what do you do when you don't feel a praise? This book gives deep insight into how Shannon's family continues to deal with these and more questions about a life of faith and commitment to God in the face of adversity.
Deep within these pages, you will hear the heart's cry of a merciful and loving God who desires to comfort His children through their deepest sorrows. This message is strongly conveyed through Shannon's testimony of spiritual perseverance even through the darkest night of her life. As you turn the pages of this tour de force, you will find yourself drawn into a world that mixes joy and pain in a new way.
Shannon has proclaimed each writer to be her invited guest on a journey to a place of healing and perpetual joy. While on this journey, you will laugh and you will cry. You will find the strength to dig up hurts, wounds, and emotions that have been allowed to lie dormant for far too long.
