After life is shattered by loss or a traumatic experience–whether big or small–it can seem impossible to heal or even move on. Deep down you believe God intends good for you, but you just don’t have the energy or strength to figure out how to move forward.
Author Laurie Pawlik has been there, and here she shares how she flourished despite multiple losses. Through practical tips and thought-provoking questions, she helps you take small yet powerful steps toward healing and letting go. She also offers insights and encouragement from the lives of strong women in the Bible. You’ll glimpse the painful losses these women experienced and learn how they flourished despite seasons of hardship and grief. You’ll discover how God shows His presence and power in the valleys, deserts, and storms. And you’ll feel a fresh sense of hope that, with God, you can redefine yourself, remake your life, and grow forward into a beautiful new season.
Growing Forward When You Can’t Go Back by Laurie Pawlik is a sensational read. I really enjoyed reading this book. The pages were filled with heartfelt talk and Biblical references in plain English. It wasn’t just a quote from a Bible but a rephrased wording of it that made it easy to read and understand. The journey to redefining myself and finding ways to cope with moving forward felt good. Laurie Pawlik has a way of drawing out the positives and showing the reader her own wounds as an example. She too, has felt pain and sorrow. Yet she has built herself up and continued moving into the future. I really recommend this book to all readers, not just women.
