Review: Healing Sands (by Nancy Rue and Stephen Arterburn)

Ryan Coe's life was out of control. She is divorced, her husband has custody of her two sons, and she is feeling angry and empty.  Her oldest son has been charged with a horrible crime, and she is convinced that he is innocent.  Her personal life crosses over into her professional life as a photojournalist with a local media company.  In desperation she seeks out counselling at Sullivan Crisp's Healing Choices clinic.

This story is about a woman desperate to regain her position as Mom to her two boys. It is also a story about her journey with anger and learning to control it. In between her family struggles, work difficulties and personal counselling, she realizes that in order to truly find peace she needs to look for a bigger solution, her faith in God.

"You know where you've been, the silence whispered to me. Now - will that lead you to someplace you need to go? Or will you let time blow over your tracks before you find your way?" I love this quote from the book "Healing Sands".

I read another book in the Sullivan Crisp Novel series called "Healing Stones" a few months ago, and I loved it, so was thrilled to have the opportunity to review this book "Healing Sands". I thoroughly enjoyed it, right from the first page ... and I highly recommend it. There are many deep truths hidden within this book that we can apply to our own lives.

Thank you to Thomas Nelson Publishing for providing a complimentary copy of this book, for the purpose of review.
