內容簡介 Pain is painted on the canvas of our lives in a myriad of forms. But how can there be purpose through pain and lessons to be learned? In a deeply spiritual presentation, Ann Beckham Gainey details her incredible experiences as a simple medical procedure triggered a years-long jumbled journey through pain to purpose. While revealing her prayers, conversations with God, and applicable scriptures, Ann leads others down an inspirational path where the Lord revealed himself in unexpected ways to her open heart, even as she hung on for dear life when the deceiver of her soul relentlessly nipped at her heels and tempted her to give up. Through it all, Ann provides hope to each one of us that, with the Lord's help, we can not only survive difficult times, but also emerge as a deeply spiritual child of God, strong in faith and purpose. The God Chair shares the inspirational true story of one woman's journey from the darkness of pain and frustration into the light of re-creation, healing, blessings, and ultimately, her purpose. ...Ann's ... heart for hurting people adds an extraordinary grace that will touch your heart and give you hope. -Jentezen Franklin, New York Times bestselling author and pastor When I first met Ann Gainey I was so impressed by her energy that I nicknamed her "fireball Ann." You, or someone you know, will be blessed and encouraged by her testimony. -Cal Thomas, Syndicated Columnist
