Hard Times and Holy Places

My Rating:

Hard Times and Holy Places is an inspirational book that will encourage and fortify your faith during challenges while on this earth. Although the physical hardships Kristin Belcher experienced may be different than our own, we can all relate to her feelings of frustration, loneliness, and abandonment when her life turned out differently than she had planned.

What I loved the most about Kristin’s book is her idea that we can make any ordinary place a holy place; a place of refuge and peace where we can be taught and comforted by the Spirit. I also loved Kristin’s take on the word “why”. She learned that getting through mortal trials was easier when she replaced “why” with “why not?” Through Kristin’s humor and humble testimony, Hard Times and Holy Places can become our guide to finding peace and comfort through adversity. We can learn how to laugh at our troubles and find strength and healing in our Savior, Jesus Christ.

For those feeling overwhelmed or saddened by the burdens they have had to carry, Hard Times and Holy Places is the perfect gift to provide encouragement and hope.
