The Desire, Dan Walsh and Gary Smalley
Let me start by saying I am a huge fan of Dan Walsh books. Everyone that I have ever read has been filled with emotion and with the presence of God. This book is not different than any other book from this author I have picked up to read. I think the biggest difference is that the book is like a look back on a journey that changed the life of two women. The heart break of infertility hit too close to home for Michelle and Allan. She is broken and longing for a baby of their own. Although he loves his wife he understands that God has given them the opportunity to help children in Africa. The two struggle through the ups and downs of emotional trials. Michelle desperate for a change, Allan okay with the status quo. Both know that something must give, that they are at a breaking point - but both hope that it is not their marriage. Little do they know that the scripture of Jeremiah 29:11 holds true in all cases. That God in fact does have a plan for them and that the plan He has in place for their lives is greater than they could have ever imagined. In fact this plan goes past the two of them and changes the lives of others. Deeply moving, deeply emotional. Get ready with a box of tissues - especially if you have ever walked the road of infertility and felt the aching of the heart that comes with that road. Thanks to Revell for this review copy in exchange for my honest review.
