My Life and Lesser Catastrophes by Christina Schofield A REVIEW

For Christina Schofield, the difference between life as she’d always known it and a life of fear and uncertainty was a matter of a few pebbles.

As the motorcycle she and her husband were riding hit a patch of loose gravel, the bubble around her smooth Christian life popped. The safety nets she thought she had--based on unquestioning obedience to God, unyielding faith, a ministry-focused life--broke as their bodies were hurled from the bike.

What began that very moment was an emotional search for the God she thought she knew. With warmth and transparency, Christina describes facing her deepest questions of faith--and God’s painful silence--with honesty, sincerity and humor, showing that even in our darkest hours, God’s goodness shines through.

Christina Schofield has been a children's illustrator and writer for the last ten years, working with Zonderkidz, Group Publishing, Standard Publishing, and Cook Communications. She and her husband, Allen, a campus pastor, have one daughter, Lily, and live in Rolla, Missouri.

  I really enjoyed this true story told by Christiana Schofield. Her husband and her were in a motorcycle accident. Christiana tells about the different stages they go through in the hospital than at home and she tells it with such style and love her wit and humor. She only suffered a concussion, but her husband, Allen became paralyzed.
  When reading this book you will find out how they cope with hardships like changing their lifestyles completely, having to quit or slow down in their jobs, how their prayer life and Bible reading changed. How they thought they were leaning on God before, but now have no one else to turn to.
  I love how both Christina and Allen put humor into their new life situation.  They still have moments of wondering why or how can they cope with all of the changes. I really like how they go about praying for complete healing.
  This little book is really an encouraging book. It will lift you up even though it talks about some hard issues in life.
I highly recommend this book and am very glad to have read it.
