Redeemed: The Power of a Single Story


By Kristy Hinds

God can use our pain to transform us and the people around us. We all have personal stories about overcoming our circumstances. Yet, we often hide our past, eager to forget our old hurts. But our stories are often the very resource God intends to unleash to heal the world.

This book is a three-part journey of how God uses our pain to transform us, to transform our communities, and to transform his church. Our lives are improved when truth is our shield and stories become our sword, empowering us to instill hope in others. If we have ever doubted how our story might be the encouragement that inspires a community, by the end of this book’s journey I pray our doubts will be erased.
