Front Cover
Crossway - 141 pages

ÒLeslie Montgomery guides the way from places of deep personal hurt to vantage points for viewing the bigger story. I especially appreciated her insights on the full armor of God. Remembering that the sword belongs to the Spirit of God (and not to me) and that prayer keeps me alert to strategic communication with my Leader (Christ) will improve my effectiveness in spiritual battle. GodÕs personal provision for every need is evident on each page of this wonderful book!Ó
Jim Vigorito, Focus on the Family

ÒSo many of us wish we could erase the word suffering out of the dictionary; weÕd like to escape it, medicate it, ignore itÑdo everything but embrace it as part of GodÕs plan for our life. In her book Leslie Montgomery seeks to show us how to hold fast to the Lord in the midst of pain and problems!Ó
Joni Eareckson Tada, the Joni and Friends International Disability Center
