Do you understand why trials, large or small, are all tools in the hand of an all-merciful, loving Father?

Look Inside the Book or Listen on Audible

"It's true that this book is about me. (It's hard to avoid that when writing stories from my own life.) But this is also a book about trials big and small—about cancer, about suffering, about death—and especially about the temptation to fear. Sounds like a real downer, I know. But let me assure you that, while these frightful things are the reason for this book, none of them is the point of this book. The real point is God Himself and the comfort that His fearful and afflicted children can find only by trusting Him." -Hannah K. Grieser, from the Preface

The Clouds Ye So Much Dread is a beautiful blend of memoir, theology, meditation, and storytelling. Each of these chapters—from dreading the birth of her first child, to living in unfamiliar and dangerous places, to facing the news that her son had been diagnosed with cancer—describes the stories through which Hannah K. Grieser has come to see that hard or uncertain circumstances, rather than being cause for doubt and dread, can instead become the unasked-for means that our loving Father uses to turn us toward Him and to show us His faithfulness.

Told in Hannah's graceful yet punchy prose, the reflections in this powerful book will challenge readers to revisit their own hard times and see how God can take the storms that we most fear and turn them into downpours of blessings.

You can also purchase this as an audiobook here, on audible, on SCRIBD, and wherever audiobooks are sold.

What People Are Saying:

"Loved everything about this book. So refreshing and encouraging!" -Dan

"I read through the book in a couple of days. But I will be reading it a couple more times before I move on. I have recommended it to each friend I've spoken to since I bought it!" -Sarah

"I found this to be a heartbreakingly beautiful book." -Renee

"I couldn’t put it down. Encouraging without any sappy cliches, or discounting how devasting some trials actually are." -Patricia

"If you have experienced pain, trials, tribulations, frustrations, sadness, at anytime in your life, or witnessed this in the lives of those around you - you should read this book." -Kirsten

"I'm only half way done and am already reading parts over and out loud to anyone who will listen. What a blessing this book is already; I can't wait to finish it and to give it away to friends and family. Even readers who are not prone to fearfulness will find this book a tremendously worthwhile read. Get it! Read it!" -a reader

"There are certain books that are so full to the brim with goodness and grace that you know a review can't do it justice. This is one of those books." -a reader

"What an incredible book.... I have been touched and inspired to fear not." -a reader

"Both comforting and unapologetically frank that life can get really, really ugly but we are borne through on wings like eagles. [Hannah] writes very much in my preferred style, not overly philosophical or with huge theological words that this mommy-brain easily forgets! The 16 chapters are fairly short and it was easy to read only one at a time and pick it up later without loosing the train of thought or having to find the right frame of mind. Something vital for those of us with children, right?" -a reader

Hannah K. Grieser designs graphics, photographs landscapes, dabbles in the garden, and (with her husband, Jayson) is raising five pig-farming, music-loving, baseball-playing sons—including one cancer survivor. She has written for Relief Journal, Books & Culture, and Desiring God.
