Mental illness impacts one out of five* families each year, yet few are willing to expose the anguish and tumult they face daily. Informational, devotional, educational, and inspirational, the newly published book, Sparks of Redemptive Grace, provides an authentic view of one family’s transparent hope in God’s unfailing love, hewn in the fires of fear and faith.
For those whose loved one struggles with mental illness, you will find that Catherine P. Downing has told your own story with sincerity and humility. She reminds you of the light of God’s goodness that the darkness of mental illness cannot overcome.
For friends watching the chaos surrounding such struggles and wanting to understand, this book will open your eyes not only to the family’s needs, but also to the presence of God in their midst. For clergy and counselors looking for resources to support families in crisis, Sparks of Redemptive Grace offers comforting truths about God’s very real presence in times of trouble.
