What do you do when life falls apart, and it feels as if God has left you? How do you keep going when your faith is rocked to the core? Sometimes things get so hard we're not sure where God is - or what he's up to. For Patrick there was pain, illness, and loss in his family and community. Then a series of excruciating operations took him to the brink physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Writing during his journey of recovery, Patrick explores how we find God in times of suffering. He wrestles with how we can know God's peace when life is anything but peaceful, what the true nature of courage is, how we allow ourselves the grace to rest when we're running on empty, and how we can stay fully present in the moment - all so we can ultimately grasp the love of God at a deeper level.
Patrick Regan OBE is the founder and CEO of Kintsugi Hope, a charity which aims to create safe and supportive spaces for those suffering from emotional and mental health challenges. After Patrick and his family went through a series of personal trials and ill health, Patrick decided to step down from his previous role as CEO at XLP, another charity supporting young people, to create Kintsugi Hope. Patrick has travelled to over thirty countries working with, and on behalf, of the poorest communities and is a regular contributor on radio and TV shows where he discusses important issues like poverty and justice. He received the Mayor of London Peace Award in 2010 for his valuable contribution towards peace and justice and was also awarded an OBE from her Majesty the Queen for services to young people. Patrick is a passionate communicator and equally at home on the main stage at major UK political party conferences, engaging in robust debates in the media, connecting with business and community leaders, speaking to inmates in a maximum security prison or gang leaders in Jamaica. He is the author of five books. His two books publishd by Monarch Books are No Ceiling to Hope and When Faith Gets Shaken. |Liza Hoeksma is a writer who has been involved with Soul Survivor for over ten years. She has co-authored several books including Conspiracy of the Insignificant with Patrick Regan, and WorshipEvangelismJustice with Mike Pilavachi.
