A Journey Back to Me: Rediscovering Physical, Emotional, and Spiritual Wholeness. (faith reviews).

A Journey Back to Me: Rediscovering Physical, Emotional, and Spiritual Wholeness by ConSandra Jones Koinonia Publishing, February 2000 $15.00, ISBN 0-967-64903-X

"Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering...." These words of wisdom form the spiritual foundation of ConSandra Jones's A Journey Back to Me. It is the underlying theme woven throughout this chronicle of rediscovery and spiritual fulfillment. The author takes readers on a personal journey through her broken marriage and the physical pain of a near-fatal experience, which ultimately led to her physical, emotional and spiritual healing.

This is a beautifully written testimonial of one person's faith-led odyssey through the difficulties of life. Jones's book provides readers with intimate details of her spiritual turmoil, while including specific biblical references that helped see her through the ordeals. She relates her story much like a parable with the intention of offering solace and encouragement to those facing similar issues.

From awareness to recovery, Jones reveals the importance of taking responsibility for your own healing. In the end, readers are left with a sense of victory and triumph, but also an understanding that the journey continues. Jones leaves readers with a sense of comfort and understanding that difficult times serve a purpose in our lives. They prepare us to move on to the next level of faith where we grow and ultimately enjoy the life that God has prepared for us.
