Across the country and around the world, many of us have found ourselves crying out to God from new depths of vulnerability and uncertainty. In ‘Picking Up the Pieces’ Jan gives us a cause for hope. This book is an inspiring invitation to stop and reflect on the parallels and similarities of our current situation with the epic Biblical story of rebuilding, as told in Ezra and Nehemiah.
The Biblical principles, to which Jan points, remind us to renew our commitment to the overall commission and really focus. To truly care about rebuilding and maintenance of lives and relationships. And, through all the ups and downs of sadness and celebrations, endings and new beginnings, to embrace stronger foundations and clearer vision.

Whilst you can probably read this little book in a matter of a few hours, yet it might take you the next 3-5 years to apply its teaching to your life! I can highly recommend this book.
