And So I Prayed... : The First 40 Days: Special Edition
Lydia Elle is a study in contradictions: analyst and artist; woman of mathematics and woman of music; actress, model and a humble child of God. Throughout her life's journey, she has come to realize her two great loves-the arts and the Lord-and has committed herself to using the beauty and passion of the arts to share and celebrate God's Word. And So I Prayed... is a chronicle of one of the darkest times in her service of the Word, a period of heartbreak and loss that she calls her "40 days of storm." Lydia's collection of searing, honest and inspirational essays about prayer, forgiveness, and self-discovery-one for each of the 40 days that Noah and his family endured the Flood-tracks her personal journey from despair to redemption through God's power and love. About the experience, she says, "I didn't want it. I would not have signed up for it. But God told me that I had to go through it. I had prayed before my storm, but never had I had conversations with God like the ones I had after the rains came. I prayed the prayers that I knew I could pray, and all the prayers that I never thought I would."
