"Beautiful Things Happen When a Woman Trusts God" by Sheila Walsh

"Beautiful Things Happen When a Woman Trusts God" by Sheila Walsh is a painstakingly beautiful book. It starts out with Walsh's personal problems with trusting God. With brutal honesty, she reveals how she went in a psychiatric ward when her seemingly perfect life came crashing down around her. There aren't as many details of the ward and what went on inside, so readers are left wanting more. Also, as the book progresses, Walsh's life is talked about less and less and the Bible is talked about more and more. Walsh uses men and women of the Bible to illustrate how trusting God is necessary and what happens when they choose to do so or turn their back on God. What's great about this book is that it focuses on the Old Testament greatly. Many devotional books don't do this. So, it is nice to remember some "old school" stories and remember how important they are in daily life. This book is riddled with some grammar errors and typos, but the overall message will touch readers and keep them turning the pages.
