Summary "This life is real and complicated, messy, colorful, good, exhausting, and exhilarating--often simultaneously. It's easy to feel overburdened by life's demands. Looking out into the world as well as under the roof of our home may cause us to question, "How did we get here? And how will we get through?" Jillana Goble has been there. With honesty, faith, and a dose of humor, her debut memoir, A Love-Stretched Life, chronicles what she's continually learning on the suspension bridge between reality and hope. A mom via foster care, birth, and adoption--in that order--for nearly two decades, Jillana has experienced life's curveballs. Her come-as-you-are posture amidst a daily reality far different than she ever imagined reassures you that you're not alone if your life isn't tidily wrapped in a bow. These stories will stay with you as you strive to love and to love well, even when--and especially when--it's hard. Whether you are widening your family circle or just trying to get through the day, Jillana welcomes you to her table, offering you an anchor of hope to hang on to as you navigate your own love-stretched life."--Publisher.
