He Heard Hannah (Giveaway)


I am so excited to be one of the bloggers on the He Heard Hannah blog tour!


Well, number one…because one of the fabulous authors of the book is my beautiful friend, Lynnette Kraft.

And, number two…because He Heard Hannah is an amazing story of God’s grace, redemption, and relentless love.

I love the way Lynnette writes from her heart, with genuine honesty. I truly feel as if we are sitting in her living room on the couch chatting as I read her words on her blog, and in her books. (She with her Starbucks and me with my tea and honey, of course.) She is real, and that’s why we love her. Needless to say, I was looking forward to reading He Heard Hannah, knowing that so much of Lynnette’s first book, In Faithfulness, He Afflicted Me, resonated with my own story. Let me just say, I wasn’t disappointed.

Lynnette’s story of heart wrenching loss and unimaginable grace facing the death of her daughter Anna, is woven beautifully with Courtney’s journey through depression and other struggles to redemption. We mothers who have said goodbye to our children long to know that their lives mattered to others. We long to see evidence that they impacted this earth. We long to see God’s hand at work, evidence that He sees. Evidence that He is who He says He is. Evidence that He will make all things new. He will bring beauty from the ashes, restore what is most broken, redeem lives marred with sin, and pursue us with His relentless love. This story – the story woven through the lives of the Kraft and Becker families – offers evidence of all of the above.

He Heard Hannah is a beautiful testament of the grace our God showers on us. I love the way He worked in the lives of the Kraft and Becker family, and the way He brought them both together. Anna’s life was used to bring healing to a broken heart and salvation to a weary soul. Her life has no doubt brought healing to many hearts…and He continues to use her life to touch the lives of so many. I love the way God works to restore and heal in unexpected ways. And, I’m so grateful to Courtney and Lynnette for telling this incredible story.
