"The rock-hard truth is that God loves you. Loves you. Loves you. Let that into your thirsty heart. Even if life is hard right now, it doesn't diminish God's love."
—Dr. Lois Evans
Fear of the future... sins of the past... a relationship at rock-bottom... Whatever you're facing, you can be certain that it is nothing new to our God.
In Stones of Remembrance, Dr. Lois Evans and Jane Rubietta take you back to stories of challenge and faithfulness in the lives of our Old Testament sisters. As you reflect on their experiences, the authors will show you how to gather your own stones, place them in the river before you, and cross over into the warm embrace of the fullness of God's love.
I don't know a wiser, more gracious woman of God than Lois Evans. I could listen to her forever!
-Beth Moore, founder of Living Proof Ministries, author of 15 books, conference speaker, Bible study teacher, and radio host.
The quality and integrity with which this book is written is only surpassed by Lois Evans's life. In this must-read book, Lois creatively uses mentors and the Word of God to challenge us to remember the personal faithfulness of God through every moment, second, minute, hour, and day of our lives. Everyone who reads this book and takes it to heart will be forever changed to overcome any rock-hard place with unmovable rock-hard faith.

This book is both powerful and challenging. It is a spiritual compass for all women who desire a navigation tool during the flood-stages of their lives. It will help a person to critically think through some of the same issues that our Old Testament girlfriends faced! It is a pleasure to read and would be an important addition to any Christian woman's Library.

Stones of Remembrance is a masterpiece of tapestry weaving familiar and unfamiliar Old Testament female personalities with the threads of God's word, prayer, transparency, and emotional healing into the fabrics of every contemporary woman's life. Authentic tapestries are stretched by the weaver vertically and horizontally. The reader will emerge as a changed woman beautifying her surroundings as the Weaver loops the lessons taught until they become lessons lived.

Joshua speaks of stones of remembrance,
"In the future when your descendants ask their fathers, 'What do these stones mean? Tell them...the Lord your God did to the Jordan just what he had done to the Red Sea when he dried it up before us until we had crossed over. He did this so that all the peoples of the earth might know that the hand of the Lord is powerful and so that you might always fear the Lord your God." (Joshua 4: 19-24)
The body of Christ is like living stones, being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For in Scripture it says:
"See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in him and will never be put ot shame." Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. (1 Peter 2: 6-7)
Lois Evans brilliantly gathers stones of remembrance of God's miracle working power in the lives of believers. Her keen insight into the heritage of a child of God enables the reader to cling to the hope that Christ, our Blessed Hope, will deliver them from despair and take them to victory as we consider that in every life there is a time of commemoration of what God has done for His children.
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot...a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them...a time to be silent and a time to speak. (Ecclesiastes 3: 5, 7)
As you read this life-changing book, think of the stones of remembrance in your own life and give testimony to God's miraculous intervention for if we keep quiet of who the Lord is, then Jesus, our Savior, promises that the "stones will cry out" of His majesty.
