Review:Ragged Hope by:Cynthia Ruchti

 Ragged Hope: Surviving the Fallout of Other People S Choices
About the Book:
It is one thing to live with the consequences of your own choices, but what happens when your life is changed because of someone else's? This insightful and uplifting guide will comfort, support and encourage you through whatever situation you must face. Cynthia Ruchti, who has walked this road herself, assures readers that God is ever present and His love never wavers. There is hope, grace, and a future in every situation, especially those that we did not cause.

My Review:
 Do you ever wonder how people move up, move out, and move on after a devastating loss or break up? Maybe after their home has burned to the ground, are people able to pick up and start over. After all they have known is burned, charred, and literally destroyed. Or maybe when a stay at home mom tries to put together a family Christmas with all the trimmings and give her children a profound set of holiday memories only to have it overshadowed by their absent father. When he decides he doesn't love her anymore and right this minute on Christmas day no less, he decides it's the perfect time to walk out on his family.

 In Cynthia Ruchti's book Ragged Hope, she takes these stories and many more like them and shows us how we can also cling to the same faith that these people did and still come out on top. It is in the midst of these trials that God is there holding our hands and catching our tears. His love is unwavering and happily devoted to getting us through it all, in every way imaginable.

 It is in these times that He does His best work. No matter how impossible the solution may seem God will bring you through it. The author is showing us all, this and more. Resting in Him is always the only choice we have.
