Many of us have been through painful experiences and often question why we should face such trials. But these challenges can also be a chance to learn more about God, about ourselves, and about how we may be a part of His perfect plan. After walking through the wilderness, the Israelites set up Rocks of Remembrance, reminders of God’s faithfulness in the most difficult times. In the same way, reflecting on how God has worked in our lives can be inspiring. This book tells of one woman’s journey through the wilderness of life and discovery of the greatest purpose in life: To glorify God.
