Blindsided by the unexpected? Envision your future with renewed  hope.


great read for the road trip of life. Marilyn and April are your wise—and wounded—travel guides for the unexpected detours in life including widowhood, chronic illness, challenged children, a stolen identity, empty nest, prodigal children, and more. They offer hope and healing from scripture and the victorious testimonies from numerous women along the winding way.

-James N. Watkins, award-winning author and speaker


But what if the pain persists? What if the money is not provided? What if the loss is irrevocable? For many, the journey of life includes devastating detours and rigid roadblocks. The question becomes, how does a believer keep going in her new normal? Authors Marilyn Nutter and April White are no strangers to rocky paths, but they remind us to keep putting one foot in front of the other in their new book Destination Hope: A Travel Companion When Life Falls Apart. What a valuable guide for all those uncertain times of recalculating. The poet Christina Rossetti once said, “Does the road wind uphill all the way? Yes, to the very end.” Through such sobering reality, Nutter and White sit with us in our pain and offer biblical teaching and many stories of people just like you and me who have embraced the hope of God’s presence, power, and provision. I heartily recommend this practical and inspiring book for anyone who feels your life is falling apart; which is, of course, many of us on this perilous and glorious journey. 

-Lucinda Secrest McDowell, author Soul Strong and Life-Giving Choices
