Love For Our Afflictions: Allowing Pain to Pave the Way to Peace

244 pages3 hours


In an age where so many secret stories are demanding to be told, the author fearlessly takes us into her broken heart in hopes of buoying others in their own afflictions. As her life is split open early, repeatedly and even savagely from threats to babies born and unborn, to a daughter's health and longevity, and to a husband's fidelity, she discovers the gifts that lay hidden within each. Freed from her afflictions, she finds a path to authentic living. 

Clearing a fiercely unconventional path to her own heart's desires, she also finds a new life as a Jew with a conversion to Judaism. 

Love for Our Afflictions does more than advise making lemonade out of lemons. It wakes us up to challenge an old, unchallenged belief--that afflictions are to be dreaded and feared-- and shows us how we can instead find love for our afflictions. 

"Love For Our Afflictions sweeps you along in a tale of truths and pain borne by one family but masterfully told so that when you put down the book you are ready to look at your own afflictions in a new way...a way that leads to healing." 

Written by Ariana Carruth and sharing many intimate and poignant experiences from her own life, 'Love For Our Afflictions' challenges readers to allow themselves to move forward and past adversity. Depicting everything from losses including including infidelity and miscarriage to bold issues of religious conversion and raising children with special needs, the book will leave every reader with plenty to think about.
