When you love a prodigal, the wait can be an unbearable storm. Questions arise that drive us into hopelessness: Where IS God? Why does God allow this suffering? Why doesn't He answer my prayers? Cheryl Ricker has written a beautiful book, A Friend in the Storm. It is a treasury of quotes, Scripture and poetry that leads to the lasting hope we have in a faithful loving God. Reaching into the depths of human suffering, Cheryl writes from the perspective of Christ speaking to the reader in soothing poetic words of comfort, encouragement and hope. Cheryl Ricker is a prize-winning poet who resides in southeast Minnesota with her husband and sons. Born and raised in Canada, Cheryl graduated from York University in Toronto with a degree in Creative Writing. Her passion to draw people closer to God led her to Christ For The Nations Institute, Dallas, where she ministered on the streets, on stage, and in prisons. Cheryl is passionate about helping hurting adults find hope and healing by experiencing Christ in a fresh, personal way. While visiting a young mother with terminal cancer, Cheryl started writing comfort poetry that was turned into the life-changing gift book, “A Friend in the Storm,” recently published by Zondervan. http://www.cherylricker.com/
