Audrey has a especial gift—she tin experience others’ pain. Not only emotionally, but physically, equally well. As a pastor’s wife, this gift helped her government minister to those who were hurting inward her husband’s congregation. But when her married adult man Geoff was expelled from their church, Audrey stepped away from her ministry, equally well. Together, they opened a bakery.
When the married adult woman of the human responsible for ending Geoff’s career disappears, Audrey together with Geoff are suspects. As the woman’s trail goes cold, her married adult man can’t convey that Audrey together with Geoff weren’t involved, together with he decides to convey judge into his ain hands.
Now Audrey has hours to detect the missing adult woman together with provide her to her married adult man or the human volition kill Audrey’s married adult man together with boy … but the alone agency to produce that is past times reconnecting amongst her gift together with 1 time once again feeling the woman’s pain.
My take: I absolutely could non seat The Baker’s Wife down. Not alone is it an exciting together with engaging story, but it too beautifully illustrates the ascendency given inward Galatians 6:2, which says, “Bear 1 another’s burdens, together with then fulfill the police of Christ” (ESV). Audrey physically feels the hurting of those she is called to help, together with equally she takes on to a greater extent than or less of their pain, they detect a stair out of relief. While I produce non possess Audrey’s gift, inward the aftermath of reading this book, I found myself considering how I may hold upward of service to those I know who are hurting. Is it easier together with less awkward to remain away? Yes. But that’s non what Christ calls me to do. It has been a long fourth dimension since I’ve read a majority that made me intend this much, together with I appreciate Healy for challenging me inward this way.
