Review:

"Michele gives us 'snapshots' of the struggles in our own lives, our hurts, disappointments, heartaches, and confusions. Then she helps us apply the only real solution: the healing balm of God." — Nancy Stafford, costar of Matlock; author, Beauty by the Book: Seeing Yourself as God Sees You

"Michele Howe writes sensitively of the struggles faced by the women she has met whether it is a mother experiencing the sorrow of miscarriage or a single woman aching from the heartbreak of a lost romance. . . . she finds a thread of hope and weaves it into a beautiful, healing reflection and prayer." — Judy Tarjanyi, former religion editor, The Blade, Toledo, Ohio

"A rich resource full of real-life situations that will encourage and inspire women of all ages. I particularly enjoyed the scriptures, prayers and encouraging words, from famous people we've come to admire and respect." — Holly McClure, author, TV host, movie critic

"Timely and timeless are two words that describe Prayers of Comfort and Strength. If ever there were a time that we need to be drawn to prayer, it is now. If ever there were petitions that were applicable to these days, they would be prayers for comfort and strength." — Jan Silvious, speaker and author, Look At It This Way
