Description

Each mother’s story is unique. While motherhood brings joy and love, it can also bring pain and heartache. It’s often different than expected and it can be hard to know where to turn when difficulty and loneliness rise up.

This book invites women to experience God’s comfort and urges mums to put their hope in Christ, despite the unexpected trials of raising children.

As a mother of five, Katie Faris has experienced the trials of motherhood, but she also knows the comfort of our Saviour. Through nine chapters, God Is Still Good offers a biblical context for suffering and hope, answers common questions, and addresses prevalent temptations and lies that mothers are likely to face.

Features:

- Each Chapter Ends with Bible Verses and Questions: Great for individual study or easily adaptable for a women’s ministry or small-group use.

- Biblical Context for Suffering and Hope: Points to biblical figures who teach readers about grief, suffering, and comfort.

- Lie and Truth Chart: Appendix includes 10 lies that women are tempted to believe during suffering, with 10 biblically grounded answers to those lies.

Author, Held

This book is a lifeline for every mom who has ever felt alienated by the advice to ‘savor the season’ or defeated by the encouragement to ‘enjoy every moment’ of raising her kids—whether because of hard diagnoses, neurodiversity, complicated births, illness, loss, or just the average Tuesday. With gentleness and vulnerability, Katie Faris not only offers suffering mothers validation and permission to grieve their hardships but she also equips them to see their circumstances through the lens of Scripture, renewing their hope and confidence in God’s goodness to them even and especially within the suffering with which they have been entrusted.

Katie Faris shows us that parenting is not a pain-free experience, nor should that be our goal; it is a deep dependency on Christ. His strength is made perfect in weakness, and he is forming us through our grief and painful parenting experiences. Be encouraged: the gospel does indeed offer hope, comfort, and purpose in our journey.

When the gift of motherhood is overshadowed by the grief of motherhood, we need a solid place to set our hope. Katie Faris helps us honestly engage our sorrows and points us to the only one who is enough to sustain and comfort us through them. If the trials of motherhood are overwhelming you and the heartache feels too heavy to bear, this book will be a balm to your weary heart, reminding you that God is still—and always will be—good. Read and find refuge in him.
