Thorson, Pam. Out From The Shadows. Raleigh, NC: Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas. 2014.
Directed at caregivers, Out From The Shadows shares stories of disability, devastation, heartache, tiredness and loneliness yet offers hope, grace, strength, prayers and vitality to those so greatly needing those attributes. Written through multiple experiences, Pam Thorson shares a glimpse into her own life while encouraging others. With a Scripture verse to open each short chapter, a personal story and biblical reference to follow, a relevant prayer and a brief worksheet of questions concludes the section.
A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
I was astounded at the strong spiritual nature of this author considering all she has been through in her life. Yet, extremely humble, she inspires people, especially caregivers, to enjoy the present and rejoice in the future. She reminds readers that God works to the good of all people even though that may be hard to understand in difficult circumstances. A favorite chapter of mine was Incomparable and I found myself still contemplating it days later. Meant as a devotional to be read in pieces, once I started the book, I finished it in a day; however, it is definitely a book I will return to in the future and refer to again and again. Out From The Shadows would be a wonderful gift for caregivers but will touch anyone’s heart.
