The Deep Down Things: Practices for Growing Hope in Times of Despair (Paperback)

The Deep Down Things: Practices for Growing Hope in Times of Despair By Amber C. Haines, Seth Haines Cover Image
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days


There's no escaping it: everyone experiences seasons of pain and despair.

In 2019, when Amber Haines resigned from her position as church curate and walked out the church doors for the last time, she entered her own season of pain and despair. That season taught her--and her husband, Seth Haines--that the journey toward hope starts with recognizing "the deep down things."

In The Deep Down Things, Amber and Seth point to a simple truth: even in the darkest times, there are tangible signs of hope all around us. The authors demonstrate how tasting, touching, feeling, holding, and participating in these tangible acts of hope picks us up, builds our strength, and moves us into beauty, even in times of despair. They invite readers to participate with those signs of hope and thereby experience the divine love of God, even in the struggle of their everyday lives.

A lifeline for those who desperately need it, this book helps readers overcome despair, find hope, and spread that hope to an aching world.
