"To give them beauty for ashes, The oil of joy for mourning, The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness, The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified"
“I believe the Lord is saying, I will give you beauty for the ashes you are standing in. These ashes will birth a beautiful flower for all to see. You will have joy for the mourning. All you have lost, I am returning to you and then some. Your life is a reflection of my heart. My hand is on your head and the heads of your children. Stand firm in these ashes; I did not place you here but I will make them beautiful.”

If you’ve found yourself stuck and want a road map to freedom, you’ve found the right book. Walk with them on the stepping stones from Beth’s floor to her mission.
