Broken Children, Sovereign God

Rejoicing in God’s Goodness Amidst Childhood Mental Health Struggles

Writing to encourage other families who find themselves dealing with mental health disorders, Leslie Schmucker explores different aspects of her and her family’s experience with their daughter, Jackie. Through violence and mayhem, joy and hope, intense isolation, shame and confusion, Leslie’s honest testimony to the goodness of God is humbling. Whether you are raising a child with a mental health disorder or not, this book will challenge your comfortable Christianity and show you a love beyond measure.
