BCW Member’s Work Selected for Lucado Book

Congratulations to BCW member Sharron Cosby for having her story selected to be included in You’ll Get Through This, the next book by pastor and New York Times best-selling author Max Lucado.

In the book, Lucado explores the Old Testament story of Joseph and the truth of Genesis 50:20. It is a reminder that God does not promise an easy or painless path through times of trial and tribulation. Rather, it’s a reminder for us to place our trust in God to be victorious over evil.

For his book, Lucado partnered with The Salvation Army to produce a special edition with personal stories included, and Sharron’s submission Crumbs of Hope has been chosen as one of four stories to be included in the book.

You’ll Get Through This is currently available for pre-sale and is scheduled for release in September.
