A Purpose And A Promise

"Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed,
but let him glorify God in this matter. - 1 Peter 4:16

Tammie with her husband, Bob,
and their three children - Joshua, Daniel and Olivia

Often we wonder if God does truly have a purpose in the trials, sufferings and challenges we face. Sometimes the heartache and physical suffering seem to eclipse God's goodness and His plan for our lives. We ask, Does God really have a purpose in all of this suffering? Will He truly work all things together for good?

In my sweet, down-to-earth friend Tammie Dowd's new book A Purpose And A Promise, she invites you to share in her journey as she watches her courageous mom, Joanne, battle stage four breast cancer for many years. Remarkably, as she walks with her mom through her battle, she sees God at work in the hearts and lives of the each family member. 

Tammie shares her joys and her honest struggles with her faith as she journeys through season of physical illness with her mom. Unpacking the truths of scripture, Tammie invites you to discover with her that the hardships God allows in our lives can also bring the greatest blessings. 

Through Joanne's brave battle with cancer and Tammie's candid and disarming perspective, A Purpose And A Promise will remind you that God's faithfulness is unwavering, and His care is perfect.
