"Mountain of Hope" takes you on an endearing journey alongside author Karen Dancey, through the ordinary and extraordinary circumstances she faces through the seasons of her life. Her story is a beautiful testimony to the transformational power of God in our lives. As a Midwestern pastor's daughter, Karen's hopes and dreams are not always in line with the plans God has for her. Following the suicide of her husband, this young mother of three reminds us that in order to be transformed by God, we must continually seek to know Him, commit to Him, and ultimately surrender to His authority in our lives. "Karen Dancey passes us the mustard seed God used to move her mountain. Now it's our turn "
-Phyllis Wallace, host of "Woman to Woman," talk radio, Lutheran Hour Ministries
"Karen's story honestly relates the tragedy of her husband's death and its devastating effect upon her family, but powerfully bears testimony to God's amazing provision and comfort through His Word, Christian friends, counselors, family, and a new Christian husband. This story radiates hope through Jesus."
-Stephen J. Carter, past president of Concordia Publishing House
"Through telling her story of a broken heart, Karen Dancey gives encouragement to all who struggle with loss. Its conclusion resonates with the biblical truth that the God of all hope brings strength and joy through the presence of Jesus Christ."
-Elise Arndt, author, conference speaker, and director of women's ministry in Troy, Michigan
