The world our kids are growing up in is beyond scary-it's terrifying. Mothers and fathers, grandparents and caregivers all fear for their children, even as they hope for them to live beautiful lives. Drawing from personal stories to give inspiration and courage, Julie E. Richardson reminds us that, while there are no easy answers, these things remain true: We are stronger when we seek the shelter of one another-on the playground, in our communities of faith, and across our neighborhoods and cities. Our own brokenness as parents makes us better able to prepare our kids for what it means to really live. Sometimes, our finest teachers can be our children. And that, despite daily fear and discouragement, there still is Available Hope.

“Where was God when ____? How could God allow ____? Why?” These are the questions that flood our hearts and minds when the unimaginable happens. When things go horribly wrong and the world seems to be unraveling, how do you believe in God’s goodness? How do you cling to hope? Chad Veach directs readers away from clichéd Sunday school answers that fail to offer real comfort or provide faith-building insights. Instead, he draws from God’s promises in the Bible and from the story of his own daughter’s diagnosis of a devastating and debilitating disease to reveal simple, purposeful steps for dealing with pain. Resting in God’s love, remembering his past faithfulness, and realizing the distinction between having faith and clinging to hope are just some of these steps. Veach reminds us that because we know who God is, we know there is hope.
