Faithful by Kim Cash Tate

Three life-long friends experience life-altering struggles. Will they find the strength to be faithful to the covenants they’ve made with God...and each other?

Cydney Sanders thought she knew God’s plan for her life. She’d marry, have kids, and then snap her body back into shape with Tae Bo. But she’s celebrating her fortieth birthday as the maid of honor at her little sister’s wedding . . . and still single. Why would God give her this desire to marry, but no husband? And why is her life suddenly complicated by the best man-who’s the opposite of what she wants in a husband?

Cydney’s best friend Dana has the perfect marriage. But when Dana discovers her husband’s affair, her world goes into a tailspin. And Phyllis is out of hope after six years of unanswered prayers for her husband to find faith. When she runs into an old friend who is the Christian man she longs for, she’s faced with an overwhelming choice.

With life falling apart around them, can they trust God like never before?

It was Dana's story that caught my eye when I ordered this book. Can a person really fix their marriage after an affair has occurred? Is it really possible or something that is saved for a wonderful fairytale? All you hear about today is divorce and divorce. NO ONE works on their marriage anymore. If something comes up to difficult to try to work through people toss away their wedding vows like yesterday's newspaper. So when I saw this, I snagged it in a heartbeat because I, along with Dana have worked through something incredible and it was only becuse of God that something as beautiful as a marriage, was saved. So this book was incredible. I cried. A few times but it showed me through these three women that a marriage, that a friendship and that difficult problems that arise, everything can be worked through and overcome with God's help. The moment we abandon God, we abandon hope. Have you ever had a trying situation? A problem or moment where you thought it was impossible to get through? Nothing is impossible in God's eyes. And with god on your side, you will never lose. Look for this book, buy this book and fall in love with this book. You will I promise.

This was a super cute book and it even came with a CD for the kids to listen to! Hannah already has some of the songs memorized and we listen to it daily. And for bedtime we read a few too.
The pictures are captivating, the verses make it easy to memorize and understand and it makes the kids comfertable learning about God and learning to to talk with Him as well. This is an awesome book to have for your little ones! :) Loooove it!
