Book Review and Giveaway -She Writes for Him Author: Cynthia Cavanaugh -- On tour with Celebrate Lit

 

\

About the Book

Book:  She Writes for Him

Author: Cynthia Cavanaugh

Genre: Women’s Issues

Release Date: May 12, 2020

It’s not often we speak about abortion, shame, betrayal, depression, anxiety, and loss in our circles of faith. It can be uncomfortable as we try to reconcile why a good God allows suffering and pain. Life is messy, and yet we need not silence these stories.

She Writes For Him: Stories of Resilient Faith is written by brave women who have boldly ventured out to tell their hard stories. These resilient women have found that God can be trusted in the midst of difficult and tragic circumstances. They have found God’s redemption in their pain and their willingness to look doubts in the face and claim God’s steadfast love over their trials.

This book is Redemption Press’s debut in a series meant to infuse hope and courage to others who have experienced a similar journey, that they might know they are not alone and can find healing.

More from Athena

In May 2019, while driving home from the Northwest Christian Writers Renewal with the sun out and the mountain in view, God gave me a vision of a movement. He gave me the name “She Writes for Him,” and I knew it would start as a book compilation, then a podcast, and finally a conference.

 

Here we are a year later, and She Writes for Him: Stories of Resilient Faith launched on May 12, 2020. Featuring Carol Kent, Tammy Trent, and Dr. Saundra Dalton Smith, 27 brave women share their hard stories of abortion, depression and anxiety, betrayal, loss, and shame.

 

The second edition is already taking submissions, and best-selling author Liz Curtis Higgs leads the lineup of contributors sharing on suffering, cancer, mental health, addictions, and abuse for She Writes for Him: Stories of Living Hope.

 

My hope in this book series is to address topics that have long been a struggle for the church to be the safe place it needs to be for those still hurting from wounds of the past. Those of us who love the Lord but have trauma in our pasts and are still on our healing journey need to be encouraged by others who have walked in our shoes. Perhaps we haven’t even started our healing journey yet, convinced we are the only one struggling the way we do or are too ashamed to admit our failures of the past. Wherever you fall on the spectrum, this compilation of brave women will encourage you to process your pain and experience the redemption in your areas of struggle.

My Thoughts

In She Writes for Him: Stories of Resilient Faith, we read and digest some tough subjects brought to us by a collaboration of women that have walked through it. This book is divided into five parts: Shame, Loss, Abortion, Depression and Anxiety, Betrayal. These are subjects that most women struggle with it. For myself, the Shame section was the hardest for me to read. There are things in my past, that still haunt me. A lot of it has to do with my rape. I did not struggle with this until  all the  mask mandates. When I get these types of books to review - I have to prepare myself. Because I know that God is about to guide me on a journey to healing. When others have walked through what I may be struggling with - it always gives me hope.  This book is a must read for women. As women we are bombarded with how we should be, how we should feel, etc. We need to be concerned with how God wants us to be. 

I received this book from the Celebrate Lit Blogging program --- all thoughts are my own,
