"Get ready to receive a big dose of hope."--Craig and Amy Groeschel, cofounders of Life.Church
Life is unfair. Bad things happen to good people. Not all dreams come true. We lose people. We fail people. And when we encounter the inevitable struggles of life, we may be tempted to ask God, Why me? But a far more helpful and life-enriching question for us to ask God is, What are you trying to teach me in this?
Tackling common struggles such as fear, rejection, failure, and more, Landra Young Hughes shows you how to have peace even when life doesn't make sense. Speaking with great empathy born from her own losses and years in ministry, Hughes helps you recognize that, while you will always live in a broken world this side of heaven, your pain has much to teach you about God and yourself. With her guidance, you'll discover how to grow through grief and thrive despite adversity.
Don't just try to "get over" the pain. Get into it--so you can get something out of it.

"If you've ever wondered where God is during the dark moments of life, this book is for you. Landra begins her story with the devastating loss of her sister LeeBeth. We have had the honor of knowing both Landra and LeeBeth personally, so watching their family process LeeBeth's death was heartbreakingly beautiful. It was a true testament to their faith and inspired our own faith in such a profound way. Landra invites you on that journey--one that is still in progress--and she offers hope in knowing that God leverages our pain for good, if we allow him to. Where Is God in This? is a timely reminder that no matter our circumstances, no matter what's going on in the world around us, we are still held by the Creator of the universe. And he will never leave us or forsake us. Walking side by side both gratitude and grief is something God has modeled for us and something Landra and her family continue to model through this journey of faith."
Sean and Catherine Lowe, television personalities
"People like stories with happy endings. We want to hear about how good life is after the battle, but that's not what Landra Young Hughes does in Where Is God in This? She is right in the middle of one of the most painful experiences of her life--grieving the death of her sister. She writes with the authority of someone standing in the center of the firefight. The pain is fresh, but so is the faith."
