The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

God rescued Jennifer Sands after her husband was killed in the 9/11 World Trade Center tragedy. And through the intense fire of pain and grief, He tempered her faith and restored her life with new purpose.

What is God teaching you in your time of crisis?

In Jennifer’s second book, she shares her ongoing spiritual journey and the powerful lessons that God teaches us in everyday life. Her insight will help you find joy in the midst of any challenging circumstances.

Trust… Peace… Growth… Patience… Joy… Strength… Change… It is all awaiting you… if you, too, can be teachable.

“If Jennifer dares to suggest that God had a purpose for what happened in her life, then we should listen. The question is not — will trials come into our lives? The question is — where will we find peace, hope, and the will to go on when it does?” –Steve Saint, author of End of the Spear and son of missionary Nate Saint

“…a spiritual object lesson taught by God’s Holy Spirit. Jennifer has shared with us her exciting journey of growing in Christ. May the lessons she has taken to heart reach our hearts as well.” –Janette Oke, author of Love Comes Softly series

From the Dustjacket:

“Jennifer’s husband Jim didn’t come home on 9/11, and her life was forever changed. Yet she would come to realize a new life in a new way far beyond anything she could have imagined. Jennifer’s bitterness and anger at God actually became proof that she still believed in Him. Her faith, although badly shaken, was still alive. She came through the blows of a pounding spiritual firestorm that poisoned her faith and suffocated her relationship with God… but she eventually submitted to God’s will. She placed her life and her future in His hands… she discovered a tempered faith.

Now, in A Teachable Faith, Jennifer passionately shares what God has taught her since she emerged from that firestorm. She speaks of her own struggles and foibles with lighthearted candor. Jennifer’s powerful and universal message – that trials can be overcome through faith and trust in God – will touch all readers who have suffered through challenges, crisis, loss, and pain.

You will discover — as Jennifer has — that God is always preparing us… He is always empowering us… He is always enabling us… He is always equipping us. In everyday life, God teaches us.”
