About

Do you live with regret? Have others sinned terribly against you? If it has been hard for you to recover from events in your past, the possibility that you could live well in the present may seem far-fetched. If you feel trapped by your past, God invites you to pour out your heart to him and to find comfort in his Word. In this 31-day devotional, complete with reflection questions and practical action steps, biblical counselor Lauren Whitman shows how the gospel transforms your understanding of the past, your life in the present, and your hope for the future.
