A Widow's Might: The Secret of Finding Strength in God

I know it may sound odd initially, but I love and collect books about suffering- specifically autobiographies. And especially autobiographies about Christians who find their strength in God through their suffering. These books teach me so much about life and faith and give me a bigger picture of life! All the comparatively little things which worry and bother me just disappear as I read books such as these. And I feel ashamed that I could ever think my lot in life was difficult! Thus, I always come away more grateful for what I have and more intentional in living my daily life! 
A Widow's Might is another such book. It is an autobiography by Judy Knox which tells of her time of suffering as she waited for her husband to heal only to find that he would never be going  home with her.  Judy has a wonderful grasp that her husband did go to his eternal home which gives her great peace and that is awesome to read about. I hope to someday have such peace! This whole book is a testimony of God's faithfulness and the strength one can find in Him. 
I recommend this book especially for widows and those going through suffering as well as people living in comparative ease and safety!
Overall, this book wasn't as life-changing as other autobiographies I have read but it was very good nevertheless.
I also didn't agree with all the doctrine which the author believes but that is up to you, the reader to discern. 

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.
