“In the Shadows”: an uplifting message of God’s unending love. “In the Shadows” is the creation of published author Beth Marie Hawley, a retired critical care registered nurse who overcame lupus.

Hawley shares, “This study was written to bring insight into God’s love and redemption brought into this world by Christ Jesus. It tells stories of faith, suffering, healing, and lessons to be learned. Many of the people we will read about were people mankind put ‘in the shadows’ due to disease, social status, profession, or uncontrollable circumstances. It is not unlike today’s society. I want us to look at all people as Jesus did, regardless of their condition or who they are in society.

“No person is too lowly to be loved by our Lord. We are all created the same and should think of ourselves as loved in the eyes of God. Hopefully, this study will provide introspection to each of us. Are we the problem or solution in bringing all people into the light of Christ? The miracles discussed are only a few of those recorded. The people we will study were either healed or redeemed. By that circumstance, they were no longer ‘in the shadows.’ Some were no longer in the shadows of society.

“Many were put in the redeeming light of the Lord. From this study, we will learn scripture and the insight it brings. We don’t need headlines to bring to our attention those struggling in this world. We do, however, need to open our eyes to those struggling around us. No matter the circumstances, we are all neighbors in this world we inhabit together. This study will teach us what happens when the love of Christ enters our lives. The hope, love, and faithfulness of our God are always within our reach.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Beth Marie Hawley’s new book will encourage and challenge readers in their treatment of others who may be less fortunate in one way or another.

Hawley shares in hopes of spreading an important lesson that was shared with her at a young age by her beloved parents and the word of God.
