Walking Through Fire
About the Resource:
Vaneetha Risner’s memoir is an astonishing, Job-like story of how an existence filled with loss, suffering, questioning and anger became a life filled with incomprehensible peace and joy. Walking Through Fire tells the story of her loss and redemption. When she was an infant, she contracted polio, was misdiagnosed and lived with widespread paralysis. When she became a Christian, though, she thought things would get easier. While things did get easier, life also unraveled with miscarriages, loss of a child, being diagnosed with post-polio syndrome and more. Through it all, Vaneetha discovered that everything she experienced was designed to draw her closer to Christ as she discovered "that intimacy with God in suffering can be breathtakingly beautiful."
