"There is a saying that goes like this: We Are Our Stories. We learn and grow by sharing our stories. In Joyful Mourning: A True Love Story, Charles G. Pedley pulls back the curtain of his life to reveal a marvelous story of hope and encouragement. It is a personal, up close reflection of a journey through heartaches and sorrows that presents a startling conclusion: God is always at work in our lives, even when--or perhaps--especially when life takes an unexpected, heartbreaking detour.
Within these pages we get a glimpse of how God's purposes are worked out and he is glorified, while we mere mortals stand around asking variations of the why question: Why does bad stuff happen to good people? It is a forthright, emotional, evocative account written in a down to earth voice that easily and honestly connects timeless truth to the oft-times hard realities of life.
It may be through a glass darkly, but in Joyful Mourning, Pedley gives us an uplifting look at how the sovereignty of God plays itself out in real-life circumstances. It is a tale of faith that is good reading for anyone who has ever struggled through hardships immersed in the helplessness of the why question." - Ken R. Abell
