Risking Rest: Embracing God's Love Through Life's Uncertainties

Carolyn Watts

In a world where uncertainty looms large and trials test the very essence of our beliefs, Carolyn Watts invites you to accompany her on a journey through the labyrinth of faith. At the heart of this captivating memoir lies the profound question that tugs at the core of our existence: Can we truly trust the boundless love and goodness of God, even when life seems to be falling apart?

Spanning continents and emotions, Risking Rest follows Carolyn's unwavering commitment to faith in a good and loving God as she navigates the tumultuous waters of medicine, obstetrics, and a life-altering journey to Afghanistan. But it's her grappling with illness and the shattering of her carefully constructed world that truly puts her trust to the test. Is her foundation strong enough to hold in the midst of chaos? Can she find a place of rest in God's embrace?

As you journey alongside Carolyn, her experiences become mirrors reflecting your own moments of doubt, vulnerability, and resilience. As the pages unfold, you will be captivated by her struggle to believe in her worth beyond her roles. With her, you'll discover yourself safely carried by God as an unborn babe and "midwifed" by the One who carefully tends new life. You'll discover that same One wooing you, longing to share with you his life, love, and work in the world. You'll find yourself carrying Christ's life within you, your role to offer space, and then to cooperate with the rhythms of labor. In embracing her vulnerability, Carolyn unveils a profound truth - that resting in God's love is the foundation of engaging in His work.
