A Heart Set Free
A Journey to Hope Through the Psalms of Lament
For many of us, we might busy ourselves with projects or work long hours to keep our mind off our pain. We might look at our circumstances and seek to change our situation in the hope that we will finally feel at peace once our life has changed.
The question is – How often do you look to God in His Word for help and hope? How often do you turn to Him when you feel anxious, distraught, or abandoned? How often do you bring your burdens to your Savior? Take a journey of hope through the Psalms of lament with Christina Fox.
“Some days feel like a roller coaster ride–up and down, and if possible sideways … Christina doesn’t ignore our emotions, rather she drives us from the wild ride to the freedom found in Jesus.” — Trillia Newbell, Author of Fear and Faith
“With theological integrity and practical suggestions she tenderly teaches us the language of lament and how our lamentations can take us to the gospel.” — Susan Hunt, Pastor’s wife, former Director of Women’s Ministry for the PCA

” A book that invites us to vulnerability, transparency and trust – particularly when life is hard … offers practical, empathetic help for those whose emotions have taken them captive in a time of upheaval.” — Jen Wilkin, Author of Women of the Word: How to Study the Bible with Both Our Hearts and Our Minds
