Daily Encouragements for Overcoming Life's Struggles
Soul Focus: Book One
If you’ve picked up Soul Focus, you may be facing significant trials of your own or are well-acquainted with the heartache they bring. It is my prayer that within these pages you’ll find comfort and hope as you face your hardship or tackle the mourning process that comes after.
I began writing devotionals after being healed of nearly two years of intense physical pain. Soul Focus is the fruit of that pain. Through various trials, God proved himself faithful, and I discovered that joy and peace can be found during the darkest nights of the soul.
Soul Focus offers daily, life-giving encouragement to help remind you that you’re not alone. Journaling pages are included throughout to record personal inspirations and reflections on the path to healing and hope.
“I have travelled alongside someone who lived the kind of chronic pain that led Melanie to write this devotional journal. The writing is so powerful and authentic, I cried as I read it, feeling the encouragement it holds for all of us, especially for people in pain. I recommend you buy two copies—one for you and one for a friend; it holds the hope we all must share.”
— Lorna Dueck, Crossroads CEO & Host of Context, Beyond the Headlines
“Melanie has written a book for when we can’t sleep, when we pray through the nights but wonder why God has become so distant and silent, when the physical pain bends our bodies and disables our souls. Keep it on your bedside, buy a few to share, and above all be mightily comforted.”
— Valerie Bell, CEO Awana
