walking through a healing process? these might help. 


When I first started healing (uhhh, I mean, completely breaking down) books were my lifesaver. I connected with real people going through real things, and they got it. They'd been there. They knew what it was like to hit rock bottom, to feel the depths of pain and brokenness and hopelessness. They knew, and they were sharing the stories of how they got to the other side. They reminded me of hope, of help, of a God who LOVES. They invited me into their journeys, they invited me back to God. Here's a few of them. Click on the link to read more on Amazon.
