Destination Hope: A Travel Companion When Life Falls Apart offers camaraderie and a beacon of hope for women who feel alone in loss, struggle, or change of circumstance.
This book is not a self-help book filled with platitudes from people who think they have life figured out. Instead, Marilyn Nutter and April White link arms with the audience and encourage their readers through stories of their personal challenges in widowhood and chronic illness. Women are encouraged to see loss and hardship as part of life's journey and are reminded to turn their gaze upwards, to the Provider of Hope. Within the pages of Destination Hope comes a sisterhood, a bond, that is formed only through the mutual understanding of loss and the need to find hope in hard times.
Destination Hope is arranged into six chapters called Milepost Markers, which address various losses, disappointments, or obstacles. Each entry concludes with a Rest Area for reflection and journaling. A Postcard with a quotation related to the topic sends readers off with an encouraging word, as they travel on towards their destination hope.
