Never Alone: Exchanging Your Tender Hurts for God’s Healing Grace (Abingdon Press, February 2018)

From the time we’re little girls, we long to be loved and accepted—from the playground to the lunchroom to the places where we live and work as grown women.

We do our best to prove we’re lovable and to avoid being left all alone. But the truth is that it’s impossible to walk through life without experiencing the pain and loneliness of betrayal, shame, guilt, loss, judgment, or rejection. These wounds can shape our views of ourselves, others, and God and even make us question if we are worthy of love and acceptance. Whether old or new, our heartache can convince us there’s no one who understands or cares. Yet Jesus tells us a different story.

In Never Alone, author Tiffany Bluhm offers hope and encouragement that as our plans, hearts, and lives change, God does not miss a beat. What we may have mistaken for absence was only our mind questioning his goodness and grace. Tiffany reveals the depth and healing power of Jesus’ unconditional love for us and how we will never escape his love. We do not possess that kind of power. If we are willing, we can discover the sacred truth that we indeed, are never alone.

Accept your invitation to find healing for your deepest hurts as we experience the unfailing companionship of Jesus—the Rescuer and Redeemer of broken lives and wounded hearts.

Guide to Embracing the Ultimate Cure for Loneliness

Author Invites Readers to Experience Healing and Companionship

1/24/2018 || Nashville: Loneliness is on the rise in our society and impacting people of all ages. Research has shown that it increases stress and high blood pressure, weakens blood flow and immune systems, and is linked to mental disorders, depression, and even early death. It isn’t something to ignore, but rather it’s a signal for us to pay attention. Unfortunately, its negative associations, such as a weakness perception or feeling of having poor social skills, impede people from being honest about where they stand. To make matters worse, it has contagious tendencies, and our social networking culture makes it viral. To break the cycle, we need to understand what loneliness does and the behavior it encourages, seek to be more positive and discerning, and retrain how we think about people. For persons of faith, that includes re-evaluating what loneliness has led us to believe about God and our relationship with him. The debut book, Never Alone: Exchanging Your Tender Hurts for God’s Healing Grace (Abingdon Press/February 6, 2018/$16.99), by Bible teacher and speaker Tiffany Bluhm serves as a guide to help women do just that.

Walking through life without experiencing the pain and loneliness of betrayal, shame, guilt, loss, judgment, or rejection is impossible. These wounds can shape our views of ourselves, others, and God and even make us question if we are worthy of love and acceptance. Whether old or new, heartache can convince us no one understands or cares. Yet Jesus tells us a different story. In Never Alone, Bluhm offers hope and encouragement that as our plans, hearts, and lives change, God is there. What we might have mistaken for his absence was only our mind questioning his goodness and grace. She reveals the depth and healing power of Jesus’ unconditional love for us and how we will never escape his love.

“While every season brings fresh mercy and unforeseen misery, the good Lord is available to each of us,” says Bluhm. “The same Lord who sat with harlots, beggars, and the blind sits with you and me. He’s patient and kind. Strong and brave. We might test his limits, doubt his faithfulness, or walk away, but he is always good to us, no matter what. I am not alone. You are not alone.”

Bluhm encourages women to:

—Claim their value, worth, and role in the Kingdom.
—Recognize they’re dearly loved and unconditionally accepted.
—Find healing from rejection, disapproval, betrayal, abandonment, and other hurts.
—See how the past affects our relationship with God and others.
—Exchange shame and guilt for freedom
—Lean into desperate moments.
—Gain a holy perspective through gratitude.
—Find belonging through belief and courage.

“The words of this book are an offering in hopes to encourage your heart no matter what season of life you are in,” Bluhm adds. “They share about the God who not only gave us life but also gave us his Son as our first companion, the One for whom our soul longs. I have discovered without a doubt that life is hard, but Christ is sovereign. He is near.”

For those wishing to dig deeper into what the Bible teaches about this subject, Bluhm has also created the Never Alone: 6 Encounters with Jesus to Heal Your Deepest Hurts Bible study that explores the story of six hurting women in the Gospels.

About the Author

Tiffany Bluhm is the author of Never Alone and its companion Bible study. She is a speaker and writer who is passionate about helping women come to know their value and purpose because of a loving, redeeming God. In a style that speaks to women right where they are, she shares insights from a life spent chasing after Jesus.

“I’ve always had a bleeding heart for women. It developed into walking alongside single mamas, teen mamas, sex industry workers, women in jail, sisters in brothels, and mothers living in the slums of Kolkata. It has been said that women are the most oppressed people group in the world, and I believe that women, given the chance to thrive with Christ and others, will be the revolutionaries we’ve been waiting for,” Bluhm shares.

She speaks regularly at conferences and events and writes for a number of websites, print publications, and popular blogs, including the YouVersion Bible app, Deeply Rooted Magazine, and ScaryMommy.com.

Bluhm lives in Tacoma, Washington, with her husband and two sons.
