Times and Seasons: Surviving the Change by Gloria Murphy is an encouraging, Christian book about holding onto our purpose, not losing sight of our vision, and avoiding distractions as we transition through the seasons of life, both good and bad. There is a season for everything in life, every purpose, and every situation. Whether in birth or death, gaining or losing, love or hate, crying or laughing, war or peace, tearing down or building up, God makes everything beautiful in its time. How can a tragedy be beautiful? How can the abuse I suffered ever be beautiful? How can divorce be beautiful? How can rape be beautiful? There is joy in suffering and author and pastor Gloria Murphy has written Times and Seasons to help readers see the blessings, beauty, and happiness that comes with suffering.
