Author Leigh Powersabout this book: One Sunday I couldn't face walking into our church. We were in the middle of a painful ministry season, and that Sunday morning I couldn't put a happy face on anymore. I thought I was hitting bottom, but God used that morning to start my journey of healing and help me find the courage to love the church again.

Over the years, I've met many ministry wives and women in ministry whose stories ring all too familiar. Ministry is a great privilege, but it can also be painful. Ministers and ministry families deal with issues such as church conflict, antagonists in the congregation, and forced resignations, as well as our own struggles with issues such as crises of faith, insecurity, fear, burnout, and depression.

Yet God is faithful, and he waits to heal our hurts and bind up our broken spirits. RENEWED flows out of the lessons God taught me on my own journey of healing. If you are a woman who is on church staff, married to a minister, or involved in the leadership of your congregation and have experienced the painful side of ministry, RENEWED is for you. This 40-day journey will lead you from lament to loving the church again.
