Springtime of the Soul Book
Scared and alone, her husband lying near death in an out-of-town hospital, Carole Hamm quietly uttered four words that would changer her life.
As the the crisis threatened to engulf her and her family, she decided to let God lead the way. “Thy will be done,” she prayed, giving God complete control for the first time in her life. Eventually the crisis passed, but the seeds of Carole’s faith had started to stir. Over the next 10 years, that faith took firm root, sprouted and bloomed.
Springtime of the Soul, written from a collection of Carole’s journal entries during that time period, uses the daffodil as a metaphor for her own blossoming faith. It is the story of her personal walk with God as she asked the questions: Who am I? Who is God? and How do I find Him?
Springtime of the Soul also serves as a guide for anyone struggling with their own faith or who longs for a deeper relationship with God.
