When Unraveling is Good

by Sharon Betters



But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the exceeding greatness of the power may be of God, and not from ourselves.

2 Corinthians 4:7


Dear Friends,

I first met Rachel Craddock through her book, Slowly UnraveledChanged from the Inside Out. While most of us might believe becoming unraveled is a bad thing, Rachel’s eventual responses to the hard places in her life give us hope that maybe the unraveling can be good. Rachel was fourteen years old when her mother died after a long battle with breast cancer. In this week’s devotionals, adapted from her book, Rachel holds nothing back as she talks about how unraveling deep issues in her heart, though painful at the time, ended up as good. She explains how the Gospel not only unraveled her grief but slowly unraveled communication and conflict in her marriage, her view of parenting and much more.

You can hear more from Rachel in our Help & Hope interview, "When Life Unravels as Its Good"

Rachel’s smile lights up a room and I know her words will light up your day as well.
