Get Back Up
Trusting God When Life Knocks You Down

by Sheryl Giesbrecht

About the book:

Life is not always easy or fair for the follower of Christ. Yet, Sheryl Giesbrecht has learned, from the depths of past pain, it is possible to be raised up. It is possible to heal. Most importantly, it is possible to exchange hurt for hope. In her inspirational new book, Get Back Up: Trusting God When Life Knocks You Down, Sheryl tells her own story. She uses scripture to tell the stories of so many other Biblical figures who stumbled before they could be helped up. Sheryl’s message is one of hope. Trusting God in the midst of a life turned upside down is essential to survival. Without Him, life would not be worth living. Climbing out of the pits of despair would be impossible. Yes, with God to lean on, finding hope is possible. Healing is possible. God is capable of taking our losses and mistakes and turning them into something remarkably beautiful. Won’t you let Him?

My review:

I love books where authors write with authority from personal experience, and Get Back Up is that kind of book. Giesbrecht has been in some tough places, and she writes with honesty about her past. Most of all, she rejoices in the victory of overcoming those hard times. The stories she tells, her own and those of others, are encouraging and inspiring to anyone who has been through, or is going through, hard time.
