Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers

Read Redeeming Love for my book club. What an awesome story. It is based on the story of Hosea and Gomer. Hosea was a prophet in the OT and God told him to marry Gomer - who was a prostitute. She left his love and security several times to return to her old life.

In the book, Sarah traveled a hard road. There were many times, I had tears streaming down my face. This is the type of story I love.

I also realized how much I keep going back to the old life because it is, it's not. It's familiar. Safety is in Jesus. He knows my past, my present and my future - what could be more secure!

Read it. It is a beautiful story showing us the Savior's love for us.


  1. Hi Susan,

    It is a great book...we read it in my Christian book club a couple of years ago! I was amazed at the picture you have up of youngest sister has that picture in her family room. I am one of three girls. We lost my middle sister suddenly two months ago at the age of 41. Her death has left a hole in my life. But, your picture reminded me how good it was when she was here! Thanks for sharing! God Bless...Lisa (from Scrapbookers /Crafters Friends).

  2. This is such a great book! I am starting a blog about how we can listen to what God is teaching us as we read this book and how we can learn the different facets of His character and amazing, redeeming love. I would like you to be apart of this, so if you want to check it out please do! and God bless!
