Seeking light amid a hard journey? Learn ways to take God’s hand and be
Encouraged. Are you weighed down by physical or emotional pain? Trying to survive tough times with no end in sight? Told to “walk with God” but don’t know how?
Living with various medical issues for over a decade, author and blogger Karen Brough has
triumphed despite debilitating challenges by learning to listen to the heart of the Almighty. As if inviting you into her lounge room, Karen, passes you a hot drink, welcoming you into her personal, authentic and vulnerable places. You will be encouraged and have hope seeds planted by experiencing along with her, all that He has done! In the conversations, the events and miracles, you’ll find yourself-finding yourself in her stories.
Be Held By Him – Finding God When Life Knocks You Off Your Feet is an inspiring
exploration of the reassurance that can be found in the hardest of places by turning to our
Creator. Through Brough’s own accounts, the Lord’s love letters, and prayers, you’ll feel
unending comfort. And when you learn to hear our Father’s voice for yourself, you will build
a deeper, more satisfying faith to help you persevere.
This book is the author’s story about her life and her journey through an illness that developed suddenly. I really liked the “Father’s Heart” and the prayer at the end of each chapter. I think this book would be an inspiration read for all readers.
There is also a workbook that is mostly a repeat of the book( at least what part I did read) but there is more and there are questions to answer. I think the workbook would be a great start to start a journey with journaling.
I received a compliment copy of both the novel and workbook from the author and Celebrate Lit and these opinions are my own.
About the Author
Karen Brough is an Australian wife, mother, and former Primary School Teacher & has always had a passion for writing. She is the author of ‘Be Held by Him’ Finding God when life knocks you off your feet.
Ten years ago, when hit by a mystery illness, Karen began sharing the encouragement God gave to her, with others. Her heart loves nothing better than to demystifying how and who God is in the everyday and the miraculous.
She loves spending time with her husband and children. In Summer, you’ll find her enjoying the water and offering gelato to anyone who might drop by. In Winter, she makes soups, breads, and muffins. Often hiding vegetables in sweet recipes, much to her children’s dismay (secretly they love it though).
More from Karen
I wrote this book because I was given a dream to do it. I’d had my life turned upside down through medical mystery, and yet in it, God revealed His heart of love for me; and for those who are walking through the tough of life.
At every point, God unveiled every detail of the book, through dreams, verses, songs, life events and so much more. This book series is a testament to His miraculous, hope filled and loving hand, which is ready to pick us up, hold us tenderly and show us the next step. He speaks in ways each one of us understands, and I LOVE this about Him.
