Surprised by the Healer by Linda Dillon and Dr. Juli Slattery


God’s word declares that there is healing for your deepest pains, hope for your biggest disappointments, and victory over your addictions, past hurts, and past failures. His name is Jehovah Rapha, the God Who Heals, and He can redeem your broken story.

In these pages, you will meet nine courageous women who have agreed to tell their stories, to share with you how they moved from hopelessness and brokenness to hope and healing. Whether from sexual abuse, betrayal in marriage, or other harrowing experiences, the Healer invited them on a unique journey of redemption in the midst of deep pain. He is inviting you, too.

This is a six week study that I think every woman should go through, Christian or not. These authors go through fears that every woman experiences at some time in their life. This book had me crying tears of joy and tears of pain. I absolutely loved it, I gave it a 5 out of 5 stars. Not to mention the cover is just gorgeous, the gold and purple look amazing together!

When I started reading this book I was not expecting it to hit me so hard, most books like this are cheesy like “You can do it” books. This however was not like that, the authors were very honest about some of the endings being unhappy, they didn’t hide the struggle and pain. I think that there needs to be more books like this for women. If you’re looking for something to do with your devotions, small groups, or just for yourself this book is perfect!

*Disclaimer: I received this book from Moody Publishers to read and review*
