Left at the Altar by Kimberley Kennedy

This local newscaster was told by her fiancé at the wedding rehearsal that he was backing out. The trauma of that experience, and coming to grips with it before the Lord, is what this book is all about. It is a wonderful narration of learning to let the Lord lead the way in terrible times.

The author lists what she calls “tools for healing”: know that God cares, realize it’s okay to mourn, allow family and friends to comfort you, don’t mourn too long, focus on the truth, don’t waste valuable time plotting ways to get him back, get back into your routine quickly, find a godly counselor, stay in constant contact with God, and turn off the deceiver’s voice.

This is an excellent book which gives practical encouragement for use in coming to grips with painful emotions. It is well written and profitable.

I received this book for free in exchange for my unbiased review through the Thomas Nelson BookSneeze Program.
