Where Do You Turn When Motherhood Isn’t What You Expected? 

Each mother’s story is unique. While motherhood brings joy and love, it can also bring pain and heartache. It’s often different than expected and it can be hard to know where to turn when difficulty and loneliness rise up. God Is Still Good: Gospel Hope and Comfort for the Unexpected Sorrows of Motherhood invites women to experience God’s comfort and leads moms to put their hope in Christ, despite the unexpected trials of raising children. 

Katie Faris knows well the challenges of parenting. As a mother of 5, she has experienced the trials of motherhood but also knows the comfort of our Savior, Jesus. Through 10 chapters, God Is Still Good offers a biblical context for suffering and hope, answers common questions, and addresses prevalent temptations and lies that mothers are likely to face.

  • Each Chapter Ends with Bible Verses and Questions: Great for individual study or easily adaptable for a women’s ministry or small-group use
  • Biblical Context for Suffering and Hope: Points to biblical figures who teach readers about grief, suffering, and comfort
  • Lie and Truth Chart: Appendix includes 10 lies that women are tempted to believe during suffering, with 10 biblically grounded answers to those lies
