I love this book. And I love Chrystal. She's managed to fill each page with hard- fought wisdom and insight. Far too many of us live with our unresolved issues buried beneath the surface, but in a place that wreaks havoc on our souls and skews our perspective. God wants to unearth the things we've buried so he can heal and reveal, correct and redirect, and, ultimately, restore us. No matter where you've been, what you've done, or what's been done to you, God can redeem it if you'll trust him and give him access to your story. Dig in to the material here with expectancy and vulnerability. God is about to do a new thing in you!----SUSIE LARSON, national speaker; talk radio host; author, Your Powerful Prayers
Have you wandered from the life you want to live? Chrystal Evans Hurst shares raw and vulnerable stories from her own life to let you know how you too can find your way back after a few missteps.
What happens when a woman looks at herself in the mirror, lingering just a little longer than usual and realizes that she no longer recognizes the person staring back at her? What does she do when she sees that, somehow, her life has drifted away from all her original hopes, dreams, or plans?
Speaker, blogger, and writer Chrystal Evans Hurst wrote this book because she was that woman. One day she realized that she had somehow wandered from the life she was meant to live.
Chrystal since discovered that this moment of awareness happens to lots of women at different seasons of their lives. Poor decisions, a lack of intentionality or planning, or a long-term denial of deep hopes and dreams can leave a woman, old or young, reeling from the realization that she is lost, disappointed, or simply numb.
And she just needs encouragement.
This woman simply needs someone to hold her hand, cheer her on, and believe with her that she is still capable of being the person she intended to be.
Chrystal uses her poignant story of an early and unexpected pregnancy, as well as other raw and vulnerable moments in her life, to let readers know she understands what it's like to try and find your way after some missteps or decisions you didn't plan on. In She's Still There Chrystal emphasizes the importance of the personal process and the beauty of authentically sharing your journey one girlfriend to another. It’s a book of "me toos", reminders of the hoped for, and challenges for the path ahead - to find direction, purpose, and true satisfaction.
