Our lives are lived in virtue and vice and, most often, in the ordinary space between. We stumble and rise back up, ready to take on another challenge, another day. Heather King highlights these ups and downs of our lives, noting that while all of us have places of suffering and pain, those who believe in the goodness of God find a particular blessing in the workings of our lives.
King explains that “virtue” is the right way to deal with what life places in front of us. Her stories show virtue—and vice—in unexpected ways. You’ll marvel at the goodness to be found in unusual and unlikely places.
Stumble will inspire you to understand that failure is the first step on the path of redemption.
