New Redemption Press release explores where to find trust and hope when your well of faith dries up

FAITH NEWS SERVICEHas God stopping working for you? According to the American Psychological Association, many people’s faith can waver when challenges upset everything familiar.* Perhaps that’s how you feel in uncertain times, when the faith well is often bone dry and God seems far, far away.

When her son was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes, life as Debbie Ashley knew it had drastically changed. Her faith well had dried up. She couldn’t see God and could only experience confusion, worry, and uncertainty. For a time, she grappled to understand how God could let this happen to her son—and her family, as they had to now make drastic changes in how they managed everything from family vacations to her son’s ongoing medical needs.

Through patience and prayer, Debbie learned how to help her son and to work through her own fraught emotions to refill her faith in God. She says, “My friend, if you long for a belief in God that is unhindered by the what-ifs and why-nots, you are not alone.”

Using her story as a catalyst, Debbie’s Bible study Unhindered Faith: Finding The Freedom to Trust God Completely explores eight core emotions and the women of the Bible who experienced them. Women facing life’s challenges will be empowered to rebuild the walls of their wells toward a faith unhindered.

With tools designed to strengthen women’s faith in God, this book includes study questions and journaling responses to document the discovery journey. A leader’s guide is available to facilitate small group discussion.

Don’t let your faith be hindered by life’s upheaval. Begin your spiritual journey today toward a refreshing wellspring of faith in God.
