Book Reviews and Excerpts 

Excerpt from Chapter 2: “Don’t Get Bitter, Get Better”

We may never understand why God allows things to happen the way they do, but sometimes God’s plan may or may not include those you love. Don’t look at where you are, look at where God is trying to take you. No one knows the battles you are facing, what sorrows or setbacks you have experienced. Maybe you are going through a divorce or have just come out of one. Maybe some relationships have been torn and you feel you have hit rock bottom, or maybe your Cinderella story has come to an end. Whatever you are going through, be encouraged; better days are ahead. Tell God whatever happens, good or bad, “It is well with my soul.


Sometimes life deals us blows due to bad decisions on our parts, and sometimes we bare the brunt of the bad decisions of others. In Paulette Harper’s, That Was Then and This is Now: This Broken Vessel Restored, we are provided with encouragement we can use to propel us out of our negative situations. But beware! This is not a book from an “expert” who has seen it all, but hasn’t personally experience the pain and disappointment that many of us have suffered. Instead, Paulette ministers to those with hurting hearts, by candidly sharing her tribulations of a broken marriage, disappointing dreams, and thoughts of suicide. She also provides hope and inspiration from biblical examples and solutions based on the Word of God. This is a must read for everyone feeling as though they are wearing a mask of “all is well”, yet feels anguish in their soul. Paulette Harper does an excellent job of showing us how to receive the abundant blessings of God.
