She Reads Truth by Raechel Myers & Amanda Bible Williams


"I didn't know what would happen to us, 
but I knew that I knew that I knew that 
God was faithful." - Raechel (83)


Title:  She Reads Truth
Author: Raechel Myers & Amanda Bible Williams
Publisher:  B&H Publishing Group
Release Date:  July 1, 2016
Genre: Memoir / Christian Living



She wants faith, hope, and love.
She wants help and healing.
She wants to hear and be heard, to see and be seen.
She wants things set right.

She wants to know what is true—not partly true, or sometimes true, or almost true. She wants to see Truth itself, face-to-face. But here, now, these things are all cloudy. Hope is tinged with hurt. Faith is shaded by doubt. Lesser, broken things masquerade as love.

How does she find something permanent when the world around her is always changing, when not even she can stay the same? And if she finds it, how does she hold on?  

She Reads Truth tells the stories of two women who discovered, through very different lives and circumstances, that only God and His Word remain unchanged as the world around them shifted and slipped away. Infused with biblical application and Scripture, this book is not just about two characters in two stories, but about one Hero and one Story. Every image points to the bigger picture—that God and His Word are true. Not because of anything we do, but because of who He is. Not once, not occasionally, but right now and all the time.

Sometimes it takes everything moving to notice the thing that doesn’t move. Sometimes it takes telling two very different stories to notice how the Truth was exactly the same in both of them.

For anyone searching for a solid foundation to cling to, She Reads Truth is a rich and honest Bible-filled journey to finally find permanent in a world that’s passing away.




Wow. That's what I said as I closed She Reads Truth by Raechel Myers and Amanda Bible Williams, and ponder. Yep. There was so much strength and faith in what is basically the memoir of the two authors.  To write about your own story, the good and the bad already takes courage, but to lay it out there about your faith -  what went wrong and how it went right, well, that takes a certain resilience.  Beautifully written, poetic even, She Reads Truth, no matter which story you're reading, the words and its meaning seems to jump out of the pages, straight into your mind, as it travel down to your heart.

Honest and compelling, She Reads Truth isn't just about two women's journey, but it points to the Word, the Truth, and the Light in Jesus Christ. And that, my friends is what makes this book so intense and strong. It's soul-searching.  As life is good, seek Him first. When grief overtakes you, seek Him and let His light and faith shine through. Finding the conviction to find HIM first, (that's amazing) and you will find the permanence of Him and in Him.
