"Thank you for telling your story with such honesty, wisdom and beauty. I giggled, I cried, I pondered...I was blessed. Your book is now on my list of: 'Books that are SOOO good that, I'm annoyed whenI have to set them down to visit the ladies room!'" - Rhonda O. "This book is a treasure to anyone who finds themselves in unexpected hard places and doesn’t know how to navigate their suddenly complicated lives in the midst of it all.
Rayel Bausenhaus bravely and vulnerably shares her story of finding strength in God, family, and community during the time of her life that should have been full of fresh joy and expectation as a young wife and mother. Instead, she found herself in a season of deep loss as her parents battled heartbreaking health battles.
Though my story is very different to Rayel’s, I couldn’t put this book down as I felt that I too was learning from the depth of her experiences. Within her hard-won victories and devastating losses are life lessons that I, along with so many others can learn from.
Thank you for writing this book and for teaching us that there is always a way forward even though the road ahead may get hard and bumpy at times." -Helen Burns, Pastor, Relate Church
"A story of unwavering family love and devotion, the self-reflective memoir God Give Me Faith is about acting as a daughter, wife, and mother during trying times - and maintaining love and faith in the midst of family stuggles... The prose is crisp and direct, pairing efficient coverage of the family's tragedies with piercing instances of self-reflection." - Foreward Clarion Reviews
