A Warm Welcome
Hometown Healing by Jennifer Slattery is a delightful contemporary Christian novel that will warm your heart.
A wonderful welcome awaits as neighbours bond over food and needs. We all have gifts that can help others in their time of need. People pull together and help each other through testing times. “God can bring out good, even in the hard.” When life hits us hard, we need to run to the One who can give us peace.
Our earthly fathers may not be good role models but our heavenly Father will never let us down. We cannot live with one foot in the past. “I’ve chosen to let it go.” If we do not deal with the past, it will rob us of our futures. “If you want to move forward, you’re going to have to let go of the past.”
We can never control what others do, say or think but we can choose how we will respond to them. “No one could make [her] feel like trash unless she let them.” When others try to destroy us with their words, we need to remember Whose we are.
When life is hard, we may withdraw from God as our emotions take control. “Before anger and fear had pulled her away. And yet God had remained… calling her back to him.” God is a faithful Father who, like the father in the prodigal son tale, waits patiently for us to return to Him.
A theatre is in need of renovation. Old timbers are repurposed into new furniture. This reminds the reader that God can renovate and restore lives. He uses our experiences to teach us lessons and he repurposes our lives to give us a glorious future.
Hometown Healing was such a delightful read. The love and community shone from its pages to wrap around the reader and leave us feeling good.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
