Embrace the Darkness

Xulon Press presents encouragement for anyone struggling through dark times.

It's Easy to Feel Like God Has Abandoned You When Life Gets Hard, Until You See That He Left a Light On

Xulon Press presents encouragement for anyone struggling through dark times.


Author H.G. Franklin II shows readers how to see the purpose and hope in their difficulties in Embrace the Darkness: Allowing the dark times of life to bring forth your purpose ($14.49, paperback, 9781662806049; $6.99, e-book, 9781662806056).


When life hits hard, it can be difficult to see that any good could come out of our suffering.  Franklin shares stories of people in the Bible who suffered through bad times and draws parallels in his own life.  He helps readers change their perception of darkness and directs them toward the light.


I went through a life changing event and began to question the very being of my existence, and my faith in God. I began asking the question as to if God is a loving God then why does he allow bad things to happen to those who serve him,” said Franklin.


H.G. Franklin II is a native of Kansas City, MO. He is a loving fiancé, father and son, which he credits for his determination and perseverance. Having grown up in the church and sitting under the leadership of some great men of God, his passion for ministry was birthed early in life.
