Within the pages of Janice Burgess’s new book, River of Blessings, ($20.99, paperback, 9781498442848; $9.99, e-book, 9781498442855) readers will discover a story set in the town of Daybrook in the 1930s. The ease the nation enjoyed following WWI had evaporated.
The Great Depression brought hardship to most people. Through these sad times, the prosperous community of Daybrook, continues to enjoy an abundance of God’s goodness. With a great sense of conflict they consider their neighbors’ deprivation and want to offer help – yet they struggle with the cost to help others. By his conversion, the least spiritual of all Daybrook citizens lead them to surrender to God’s path.
“I want my book to be uplifting and encouraging so that people will not give up the journey they have started with the Lord,” states the author. “When difficulties arise, when roadblocks appear, when struggles stymie our efforts, we have but to ask the Lord for help. He’s given us our strengths, and He knows our weaknesses. He is ready to help us. He cares about us, and He has a plan for us that He will achieve when our resources are dedicated to Him.”
