Strings of Faith
Is it possible to experience joy made full? Many of us have been hurt and must endure emotional pain and suffering every day. But there is a path of healing. This story is one of heroic recovery. Darcy is a classically trained violinist who, soon after graduating from The Boston Conservatory, connects with her dream to play bluegrass and old-time fiddle music, much to the dismay of her parents. Her sights are firmly set on winning The National Oldtime Fiddle Contest in Weiser, Idaho. She barely gains traction with her quest when tragedy strikes. Darcy lays her gift aside for her family and faces unimaginable pain and loss, leading to dissension with her husband, disappointing judgment from her church, and anger with God Himself. Can her friends get her through such pain? What about the church that turned on her? Can her gift of music survive when her life is turned upside down, causing her to question the foundation that her relationships are built on? How do you find that magical place just beyond your dream? You may have been carrying the answer with you all along.
If you have been hurt by the church or are angry with God, you have to know you are not alone. God takes us where ever we are in our journey of hurts, habits, and hangups.
