Here is an excerpt from the book:





There is a place, a secret place where women find refuge from the daily stresses of life, those besetting troubles that often leave us perplexed and wondering, “Why, Lord?” Women who resort to the quiet sanctuary of the “secret place” find the strength to move forward, to meet the challenges of the day with courage and confidence. We understand that this place belongs to God alone. He beckons us to come closer to Him, to find all that we need, all that is truly important, all that is meaningful to our happiness in life.


In this private and secluded place, we discover the value in our experiences—good and bad. We see things as they really are; not disguised, neither distorted by our human reasoning. When the veil is lifted during our visits to this solitary place, we see Him more clearly—a God of love and compassion who shows us ourselves. It is in those moments alone with God that we see Him as He is; merciful, ready to forgive, an amazing Deliverer sharing our daily life.


The stories, devotional excerpts, and personal experiences on the following pages are the reflections of my own experiences and those of other women who abide under the shadow of the Almighty, who wish to share what they have learned in the beautiful sanctuary of the Most High. Some stories will make you laugh, some may touch a cord of sadness and compassion, and still others will spark a searching; a desire to discover your own secret place with God. This is our prayer.
