Green Pastures of a Barren Land by Candise Farmer

I believe the subtitle, "Finding Contentment in Life's Desolate Seasons," does an excellent job of describing the purpose of this book.  Candise Farmer takes the reader on an intimate journey into her tragic history with miscarriage and irreversible barrenness.  Through her difficulties and trials, she discovered seven principles that not only helped her to carry on, but also provided contentment in her deepest valley.  These seven principles are covered and explained in great detail within the pages of this comforting read.

While the book is targeted toward women who are barren or struggling to conceive, the principles are applicable to each and every Christian.  We each have thorns that we must contend with from time to time, and some of us, like Paul, have that one particular thorn that has become a part of us.  It doesn't go away.  It lingers.  It irritates.  It provokes bitterness and, at times, a lack of faith.  Whatever "desolate season" you may be facing, the principles outlined in this book can help you make sense of your trial and find peace in the midst of your storm.

I think what I liked most about this book was Candise's use of Scripture.  The principles she states do not come from her mind or from some well-known self-help book.  They are taken directly from the Word of God.  Candise admits that it was the Word of God that aided her through her many struggles and, in the end, it was the Word that helped her to accept the will of God for her life.  She makes no excuses in boldly proclaiming that no matter what questions we have, the answers can be found in God's Word.  Her love of the Lord and His Word shines forth on every page.

Are you walking through a valley today?  Are you struggling with a situation that is out of control and out of your hands?  Do you ever wonder why the Lord has allowed you to suffer?  If so, I urge you to grab a copy of Candise's book and read it from cover to cover.  Using God's Word and His blessed promises, she will direct you to the answers you seek.  It's time to find contentment, and I assure you, this book can help.
