"Finding Our Way Home" by Charlene Ann Baumbich

Sometimes it's in our brokenness that we find the greatest joy. If not for that need of mending, we would have missed out on a an opportunity of receiving God's grace. In, "Finding Our Way Home", we see a charming story of opposites coming together to create wonder. You wouldn't think these two characters would interact as well as they do, but they are just what the other needed.

I really enjoyed this story. It  flowed so nicely. Sasha felt as though she was losing everything, but found grace through an unexpected friend. I love how the story allows us to see how God can bring beauty from ash. I was moved at how the author brought these ladies together and they bonded through mending hearts.

The main character Shasha has to overcome her bitterness and anger. I love when she realizes just how much she took for granted and now is overflowing in gratefulness at the smallest tasks. Funny, how God can do such HUGE things through the smallest of movements on our part.

This is a well written story that leads us to God's hope and His grace. There is no sweeter place that really finding where home is and these characters show us when we surrender and let go, God shines His light on us and warms us in the sweetness of His presence.

This book was a gift from WaterBrook Press for it's review.
