Life on the Fringe: Testimonies of Women Moving Beyond Desperation to Faith (Paperback)
How Desperate Are You For A Touch From God? The nameless woman with the issue of blood who was mentioned in the Gospels was so desperate she broke the law and pushed through the crowds just to touch Jesus. All she could grab was the fringe of His robe. But it was that one faithful touch that moved Jesus to adopt, heal, redeem, restore and so much more than she was asking for. This book includes an intense study of this desperate woman as told through Joan McClendon's healing process and the revelation given to her from God. It also includes nearly 40 testimonies of other women and their pursuit of Jesus to overcome addiction, grief/loss, marital problems, physical illness, lack of identity, unforgiveness, brokenness, etc. In your life, what are you desperate to be set free from? This book may help you receive the healing you have been praying for.
