"Searching for Spring opened my eyes to the wonder and beauty God creates during difficult seasons. If you are looking for an encouraging, hope-filled book, then this one is for you."--Kelly Balarie, author, speaker, and blogger at

The Bible says that God makes all things beautiful in their time, but it's hard to trust that our mess can actually be made into something good.

In Searching for Spring, Christine Hoover takes you on a treasure hunt for beauty in both familiar and unexpected places. If you are in the midst of suffering, if you find your faith withering, if you are questioning whether God is at work--or even present--as you wait for something in your life to become beautiful, this book will be a welcome reminder that God never stops his redemptive work . . . and that there is a time for everything under heaven.

"Too often, the ugliness of sin and the brokenness of our world cause us to lose sight of the beauty of our God. Searching for Spring reminds us of this beauty, of the wonders of God's creation, and Christ's promise to make all things new. Read and wonder as Christine Hoover teaches us to see the beauty and hope ever-present amid the pain."--Russell Moore, president, The Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission 

"Of all the things that can scuttle our faith, forgetting the goodness and beauty of God must top the list. In Searching for Spring, Hoover calls us to encounter a God whose heart beats with goodness and beauty--a God who persists and insists on 'making all things beautiful in their time.' This is a book that you will want to read slowly, allowing its hope-filled message to saturate the corners of your weary, doubting soul."--Hannah Anderson, author of Humble Roots: How Humility Grounds and Nourishes Your Soul
