Hope in Our Darkest Places

Hope in Our Darkest Places

A note to you from the editor

Imagine a mother's worst nightmare: your child has been murdered. Lorraine Whoberry knows the reality of that pain intimately. One normal day, while she's at work, she receives a phone call that forever changes her life: one daughter has been murdered; the other daughter is hovering near death. And the pain increases as no one will help or provide answers.

From a mother's nightmare, God was able to redeem Lorraine's pain and turn it into a blessing as Lorraine started a ministry that now touches victims' families all over the country. Read her empowering and moving story, "Feeling a Victim's Pain," in this issue's TCW profile on page 16.

You may have never experienced that kind of suffering, but you've undoubtedly gone through experiences that have made you angry at God. Is it okay to express anger toward our Creator? Debbie Jansen answers that question with a thought-provoking essay in our Life with God department. Read her story, "God, I'm so Frustrated with You!" on page 23.

May this new year bring hope and healing in the darkest places of our experiences.
