About Light in the Darkness

Nearly everyone has experienced some form of trauma in their life through the loss of a loved one, childhood trauma, natural disaster, or, most recently, a pandemic. Trauma sometimes makes connecting to God difficult especially during the holidays.

Charlotte Thomason, author and survivor of childhood trauma, wrote  Light in the Darkness to provide a simple tool for survivors to connect with God during the holiday season and beyond. The book includes 25 simple and engaging daily devotionals covering 4 weekly topics: Hope, Love, Peace, and Joy. Each devotional includes space for reflection and prayer. Each week of the read along you will have an opportunity to reflect and share your insights, joys, and struggles with others during the weekly Zoom meetings.

Join author, Charlotte Thomason for a time of refreshment and renewal with a read-along of her devotional, Light in the Darkness: 25 Devotionals for Trauma Survivors.
