You can now purchase my latest book “And Yet”.
It’s Form’s first Lent book and I’m so looking forward to exploring together what joy really means and why I believe that the path to true joy is paved with lament.
Here are a few words from the book summary:
“In a life full of highs and lows, choice and challenges, the words ‘and yet’ can change everything. We are surrounded by darkness and yet there is light. We feel we are lacking and yet God provides. We are broken and bruised and yet there is hope.”
‘If anyone is qualified to teach on joy, it is someone who has struggled to find it. Rachael Newham beautifully navigates the apparent paradox that deep joy can only flow out of honest lament. Rachael makes joy accessible to people who believe it is beyond their reach.’
The Revd Will van der Hart, founder, Mind and Soul Foundation
‘Lament can often be an uncomfortable topic, yet Rachael bravely and sensitively tackles it head on, showing us the importance of addressing our pain and wrestling with God. This honest account will inspire you towards hope, helping you to find joy in the most unexpected places. I highly recommend this book to anyone who needs to know that there is a “yet” in the midst of their suffering.’
