Life upended by trauma. Overwhelming uncertainty. Faith unraveling. What do you do when your God image and self-image crumble? How do you risk again?
Nothing shapes our beliefs, actions, and behaviors more than our image of God and the image we have of ourselves. In Wild Ride, Sherill Hostetter leads readers through her journey of transformation. When accepting a call to serve in West Africa involves intense suffering, Sherill questions what she signed up for. As her sense of control and certainty in life crumbles, she is left with doubts, fears, questions, and laments. Readers accompany Sherill through her broken childhood in living with a mentally ill mother, her struggle to be good enough, her trauma in overseas missions, her wrestling to make sense of it all in light of her faith, and her courage to risk again. In these pages, you'll be invited to consider the landscape of your own life and engage with your own inner questions of who you are and who your God is in the suffering and uncertainties of life.
