Ever need a Friend in the Storm???

I just got back from Philadelphia and went to the mailbox yesterday to see what had accumulated while I was gone. Wow, I was so excited to discover my copies of my dear friend Cheryl Ricker's new book, A Friend in the Storm! In fact, because she sent more than one of these beautiful little gift books, I'm going to give a copy away, so be sure to leave a comment (and contact info), will you? You just might end up with a copy of this lovely yet practical book that will minister to you or someone you know in the midst of one of life's storms. (And who doesn't end up there on occasion--sometimes more often than expected!) This restful and encouraging book is just the right size to carry around, and it's filled with quotes, scripture verses, and poetry, all focused on pointing the reader to "Heaven's healing arms." So leave a comment and then hop on over to to order a copy for yourself--and a couple more for someone who will need it one day soon.


  1. Thanks for sharing. :)

    I'm learning a lot from your "Train of Thought" book. Thank you.

    I'm the leader of a ministry in our church called Secret Sisters. It's for encouraging our sisters. We have a big reveal party at the end of this year. The woman I have currently has stress and negative-thinking issues.
    I'd love to get her this book as a gift.

    Have a good one, dear :)

  2. Just left a comment over at FB then decided to do the same here. Cheryl's book is a wonderful little read. Kelly, I'd highly recommend it for your secret sis. Might help her to turn her focus in another direction.

    Thanks for the great review, Kathi!

    Hugs and blessings...

  3. Sounds like a very good book! As Proverbs teaches, iron sharpens iron therefore if we all make ourselves available to one another I'm sure God will work in the midst of that fellowship while quieting the storm. Amen!

  4. Cheryl Ricker delves deep into the dregs of human suffering, calming the aching hearts of people facing the most dire and distressing circumstances, leading them patiently, step-by-step through their sufferings into the ever-waiting arms of a faithful and compassionate God, with soothing words of most profound poetic truth.
