Description

Every week Mark drives four children in foster care into the country to visit their mother. From the start, he finds himself in the role of comforter, advisor and mentor for these hurting and needy children, especially for the oldest, twelve year old Lisa. The book chronicles the conversations between Lisa and Mark, who uses a pack of cards to help her deal with the issues she is facing. These cards are not playing cards, however: instead, they contain much-needed information and guidance, touching on topics such as: Keys to real lasting happiness, Is there a God? Our true identity, Anger and forgiveness, Making right choices, Living the Give way, Why does God allow suffering? Being thankful, Insecurity, and Relationships. On the back of each card there is a simple progress check for the reader. Above all, the book emphasizes the fact that we are made in the image of God, who loves us and who is very much present and involved in our lives. He is not far away, distant, looking for ways to zap us when we do something wrong. He has already forgiven and accepted us. The question is, are we willing to believe this and submit our lives to him? The story takes a dramatic turn during a storm when these lessons are driven home in real life.
