Miles, Tracie. Your Life Still Counts: How God Uses Your Past to Create a Beautiful Future. Minneapolis, MN: Bethany House Publishers. 2014.
Though shame and regret often are allowed to define people, Tracie Miles sets out to show how a person’s past can be part of a beautiful future when healing and grace are received. Using the past to shape the future, God has a purpose for each that depends on history, decisions, choices and forgiveness. Full of many personal stories, thoughts to ponder and tons of encouragement, Your Life Still Counts provides the reasons to live life as designed by God.
A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
With many shared stories from many different people, Tracie Miles also shares her own hard past. Using examples, purpose ponderings (questions to consider), scripture and explanations of God’s plan for each, the author promotes forgiveness, healing, direction and redemption to be used to reach out and minister to others to find the same. Though not always an easy read in terms of information, Your Life Still Counts would be wonderful as a Bible Study, Women’s Group or an Outreach Ministry. I appreciated the honesty with which the author wrote; I appreciated the honest message which she shared.
