We live in a world of hurting women. And just as Jesus compassionately loved those who were suffering, so can we. "As Christian women, our hearts ache with a world that suffers," author Denise George cries. "Our love for God compels us to put our love into action."
I Am My Sister's Keeper tenderly addresses issues like broken relationships and divorce; unforgiveness; loneliness; spouse abuse; and loss and grief. Through biblical stories and contemporary stories of wounded women, George's advice guides readers in how to pray, offer a listening ear, share from their own experiences and encourage others with God's promises. A complete Bible study guide makes this an ideal resource for groups of women to study together.
With the love of Jesus poured out through his followers, hurting women begin to overcome painful circumstances. Through our hearts and our hands, God still heals wounded women.

"I found I Am My Sister's Keeper a genuinely Christian response to particular issues that cause much suffering among many women in today's world. It motivated me to care more deeply for women I meet by sensitively listening to their stories, praying for and with them, showing practical love, and especially by sharing God's love for them in Jesus."

"Denise George writes from many years of experience of ministering to women. This book is faithful in portraying the reality of intense suffering in a fallen world, but equally faithful in presenting the resources for healing available to all in Christ. It will be a great resource for Christian women who are concerned to show Christ-like love to those who are suffering.
