Word Alive Press, in collaboration with Women’s Journey of Faith, are thrilled to announce the winning manuscripts for our 2017 Women’s Journey of Faith Contest!
Shine On is the well-crafted and poignant story of Cyndi Desjardins Wilkens, who awoke in hospital to discover that she had lost all four limbs to flesh-eating disease. Her courage to reclaim her life, and faith in the God of restoration, make this inspirational book a must-read.
“My heart is dancing with joy and full of gratitude for the opportunity to share this story of God’s redeeming grace through an unimaginable life altering event. I am praying that God uses this story to shine His light for those who may be facing dark times.”
—Cyndi Desjardins Wilkens, WJOF winner for Shine On
