Natalie Thomas: No More Than I Can Bear
All of us live our lives with a certain vision of what our future will be. In the twists and turns that our journey through life might take, do we ever venture to imagine that the mirror of our lives can so easily be shattered into many painful, piercing shards? How much will God ask us to bear? My story appeals to many audiences and all those who desire to have a personal relationship with the true and living God. Readers will join me on my journey from the "perfect" life, through discovery of betrayal, deceit, adultery, and criminal activity, followed by diagnosis of a life-threatening illness.With honesty and vulnerability, I communicate that there is triumph in every trial and lessons in every mistake. Different choices can be made, and the mighty hand of God can break chains of bondage forged by years of sinful behavior.
