By Rebecca Conti
No existence is usual whilst God’s faithfulness is present—a lesson Rebecca Biegert Conti learns to her lasting pleasure. regardless of tragedies, Conti maintains to belief in God and stories his faithfulness time and time again.
A selection of intimate own narratives, essays, letters, and magazine entries, Crooked Tree recounts one woman’s courting with God over a span of sixty-plus years.
Conti writes of the way she first got here to God as a tender collage scholar. She stocks the tragedy of her brother’s dying and the life-affirming epiphany he studies almost immediately prior to he died. She stocks the enjoyment of motherhood with 4 teenagers, the discomfort of divorce, the demanding situations of unmarried lifestyles at age forty-five, and the beauty of a strong come across with God within the Grand Canyon that ready her for a brand new bankruptcy in her life.
These are stories of affection and loss, of forgiveness, therapeutic, and redemption. whereas Conti’s tales are her personal, they've got an emotional power recognizable to a person who walks with God. And regardless of tragedy and sorrow, she by no means loses her humorousness, her wish for the longer term, or her religion in God.
