Forward by Dr Robi Sonderegger
There comes a time in each of our lives when we are forced to take a long hard look at who we really are. As we pass through the refiner’s fire through a variety of life challenges, all that we believe is put to the test. There comes a time when we choose between asserting our rights and asserting what is right; living to fulfil ourselves or giving up our very lives to serve others. These choices are not a one-off destination in which we suddenly arrive at the proverbial ‘got-it-all-together’ island. The first step is being willing to discover the truth and then having the courage to take the journey, come what may.
‘It’s Okay To Be Beautiful’ takes you on that journey and along the way illustrates a pure heart that seeks to bless others. This book is a gift. It is born out the author’s own experiences and in itself is a wonderful example of how even the worst of pain can turn into something beautiful in the hands of God. This book is like a fine piece of music, beautifully crafted and thoughtfully woven together. A piece that makes you laugh, makes you cry and leaves you in a place of peace. It demonstrates a faith that lifts your eyes beyond the everyday to the divine; encouraging you to trust in the incredible abundance of God’s love for you. ‘Heavenly whispers to a broken heart’ encourages you to walk in courage when the road ahead is dark and you cannot see or feel the way. Above all, it offers a perspective that sheds light into darkness and challenges us to hold on to hope. Hope that does not listen to all the voices that tell you to let go, but focuses on the one reason that tells you to hold on.
