Grit and Grace When You Doubt Your Faith


Our faith, like anything in life, experiences seasons. When hard times strike—financial struggles, a difficult diagnosis, crumbling relationships, or heartbreak—it can be difficult to hold onto faith. You find yourself questioning and broken. It may be difficult, but we here at The Grit and Grace Project believe it’s possible to hold onto hope. We place our faith in a personal God, not in our circumstances. That may not take away the hard days, but it brings the strength to help us get through them. If you find yourself in the midst of these days, we recommend these articles for encouragement:
