Broken Children, Sovereign God
Rejoicing in God’s Goodness in the Midst of Childhood Mental Illness
Writing to encourage other families who find themselves dealing with mental health disorders, Leslie Schmucker explores different aspects of her and her family’s experience with their daughter, Jackie. Through violence and mayhem, joy and hope, intense isolation, shame and confusion, Leslie’s honest testimony to the goodness of God is humbling.
