Ragged Hope Book Review
I really felt this book was a slow start...but then the more I read the more I was just so touched with each true story and struggles they faced.
This is such a unique book, I have never come across a book quite like Ragged Hope. The hope God gives each person comes through in such a myriad of ways. I could not believe how different yet so close to home some of the stories were. The ways courage, faith, hope, and a struggle showed itself in this book was refreshing and eye opening.
Author Ruchti picked a unique perspective when it comes to Ragged Hope. Ragged hope is not this clean slate perfect kept thing. Sometimes it is a single ragged thing that we hold on to...cling on to when life throws us a curve ball. Author Ruchti takes on a different perspective of hope in interviewing and writing about people who have gone through what seems like hell and back because of someone else's choices. Ordinary people who because of somebody else has to face lifelong consequences....but as they cling on to their ragged hope they live every day. They can continue on with life.
This book also opened up my eyes about the people I come to meet every day. What is it that they need? What is it that they are going through as a result of someone else's bad decision? Or simply how can I offer help to their lives. Ruchti takes time to show readers how to help those going through life's tough moments. She offers a verse for those who are going through a struggle like the person she wrote about. But she doesn't stop there. She also offers a way to respond and offer support to people we may know who are maybe in the same situation as the person in her chapter. I love it.
