Publisher's Summary

Read by the author.

Learn how to see the good, again, even after hard times.

What does it feel like to come back from something hard, to be able to hope again? Hard things are a part of life. Yet they don’t have to have the final word. They can become the keys to our greatest usability in the kingdom of God - that is, if we let God make good of them, rather than running away and refusing the growth we truly crave.

If we’re weary of being bossed by our emotions, the hard good can help bring a new way of living with healthy, managed emotions. Where we were once stuck in a place of what if, the transformational process God takes us through provides a compelling shift of perspective to what is. It is the way we not only come back from hard things but also emerge with a richer life.

In The Hard Good Lisa Whittle guides us on a powerful path to progress as we learn to:

  • accept things we wish were different,
  • apologize and forgive first,
  • cheer for someone who gets what we want,
  • open our hearts again when we’ve been hurt,
  • find joy in the waiting,
  • and show up when we want to shut down.

Written for those who desperately want to move forward, The Hard Good gives voice to the hard places we all have lived and Lisa’s clear directions as to where to go next.

Your hard place is never too hard for God. Allow it to change you, help you, and ready you for the greatest comeback you have ever known.

God Answers Prayers

Loved It! Chapter 6 was the chapter for me. After losing my 3 sisters within the last 15 years, I was experiencing all the effects of a shut down. I lost my Dear Mother 2 years ago. I felt I was nobody anymore but God assures me I am His daughter.

The good of The Hard Good

I’ve never read a Lisa Whittle book before so there was no prejudging what I might find. What I found was that this book touched deep places with words full of mercy and grace for the hard things we face in life. It’s worth the read. And I will be reading it again.

Like a hard good look in the mirror…

Lisa shares from a place of experience, bringing truth - sometimes a hard truth to light. Like a hard good look in the mirror, this book will expose what is really in that reflection, and dives into what is behind it, and how God can, no matter how we can’t possibly understand how, redeem the hard things and work it together for good. If you have been disappointed or hurt, or part of the “secret society of broken hearts” you will want to read this.

Just what my heart needed.

Lisa’s words took me on a journey of healing and surrender, pointing me to the savior the whole way. I am learning to find the good in the hard.
