Lord I Need You

“I’m afraid there’s been an accident…”

12bdf6ff-3021-4e73-bccd-bc919398d1a0-7068-0000031133e7b4d9Sandy Brown and her family have just moved to Spokane, Washington where her husband, Scott, is pastoring a new church. With a fresh start, Sandy is determined to devote more time to her four children. But, within weeks of settling in their new life, the Brown family is plunged into turmoil.

Sandy receives shocking news that her children aren’t safe, which brings back haunting memories of the trauma she experienced as a girl. Then, the unthinkable happens…

A brutal attack puts Sandy on the brink of losing everything she’s loved. Her faith in God and the family she cherishes are pushed to the ultimate limit.

Is healing possible when so many loved ones are hurt? Are miracles really possible through the power of prayer? Can life return to the way it was before?

Blue Sky reveals how a mother’s most basic instinct isn’t for survival… but for family.

If you’re a fan of Karen Kingsbury, then you’ll love Blue Sky. Get your copy today on paperback or  kindle.

Two more Amazon book reviews of Blue Sky

Inviting Jesus into daily family life

“Ed and Janice Hird have a genius for engaging the reader immediately in the ordinary of day to day family life. In Blue Sky, real life unfolds as they communicate with one and turn to their Lord, Jesus Christ for help, healing and guidance.

Cudos to Ed and Janice for a great read and a real page-turner as the reader is drawn into the intimate details of family life and a genuine faith walk.”

Blessings

Morning Star days
