January 25, 2011 Leave a comment
Left a the Altar is Kimberly Kennedy’s real-life story of being jilted hours before her wedding day and how she overcame the grief fo being rejected by the man she loved. In her book she shares stories from other women who have also been rejected, stories from men who have done their share of rejecting, and a few tools and insights on how to overcome the pain.
This is not just a memoir, but a book that shows the reader that not only is she not alone, and that there is hope. Kimberly guides you through her own stages of grief and illustrates her personal tools for overcoming such a terrible blow to one’s self-esteem, with the help of some professionals.
We’ve all been rejected in some way, and this book is for all rejected women; single women, dumped girlfriends, jilted fiances, abandoned wives and divorced wives. Even some men may find this book helpful, I know I did. It doesn’t focus on finding The One, but finding God, then maybe finding the one he planned for you. Kimberly stresses that your relationship with God must be stronger for true happiness and self-worth to be achieved. That is just so true! I have had to deal with my own feelings of abandonment and rejection over the years, and reading this book helped to solidify the healing that I’ve gone through since. I wish I had this when the hurt was fresh, perhaps I would have come back to myself and to God sooner. I would definitely recommend this for any woman struggling to recover from a broken relationship, or who’s in a broken relationship, or even a woman who has never found The One and despairs of ever doing so. This will make you cry as you share the pain of other women like you, and in the end you’ll walk away a stronger woman in faith and in life.
