For author Sheryl Giesbrecht, her support of women in need runs deep. That effort continues this Saturday with her book signing at Barnes & Noble, which will support those she's been working with at the Mission at Kern County.
Through her GriefShare and Freedom In Christ training, Giesbrecht has been helping women at the Mission for the past few years. Now that many of them are living at the recently opened Lee & Krystyna Jamieson Recovery Home for Women & Children, she wants to help support the families.
On Saturday, all books purchased with a mention of the Mission’s Home for Women & Children will have a percentage donated to children’s books for the recovery home. Purchased children’s books may also be directly donated to the effort.
Starting at 6 p.m., Giesbrecht will be on hand signing copies of her new book, "It’ll Be Okay: Finding God When Doubt Hides the Truth."
In this latest book, Giesbrecht encourages readers not to be afraid to doubt. It’s hard to keep praying or walking forward in faith when we don’t get answers or see God’s guiding hand. Difficult times often cloud our perspective. Christians are afraid to admit to having doubts — even to themselves — because they confuse doubt with unbelief.
The book fair runs Saturday at Barnes & Noble, 4001 California Ave. For more information on Giesbrecht, visit SherylGiesbrecht.com.
