If Tomorrow Never Comes by Marlo Schalesky - GIVE AWAY!


“But if I know one thing, it’s that happiness can’t be found by grabbing at our dreams. It’s found by when the sea comes in, the sands shift, and the fog is so thick that you can’t see tomorrow, but you hope anyway. You trust. You believe the dawn will come.” (p. 69)

Marlo Schalesky’s voice is unique…haunting. Her stories are not always easy to read, because the truth of human nature written upon the pages often serves as a painful reflection of reality. Although I’ve never struggled with infertility, I know the cost of grasping after my own dreams instead of seeking God’s will. It is a cost higher than I want to pay ever again. Ever.

Kinna and Jimmy Hinley must also learn the cost of self-centered choices. They must learn that God’s will for their lives can be trusted completely even though it often looks nothing like the dreams we have grasped for so desperately. Kinna wants a baby. Jimmy just wants to be loved and be strong enough to be who God designed him to be. Neither of them trust God enough to reach past their brokenness.

Then they meet Thea and Joe - strangers whose words cause them to face the truth about their pasts and see the hope that dwells in tomorrow. Who are they? Why do they persist on pursuing the broken places of Kinna and Jimmy’s lives? Only God knows.

You will be amazed. You will be deeply touched. You will be thankful to God for His grace and mercy anew. If Tomorrow Never Comes is a story that will make you rethink your own goals, and allow all your tomorrow’s to rest in God’s almighty hands. I highly recommend If Tomorrow Never Comes to anyone who wants to understand God’s long-suffering, His grace, His mercy toward all His very self-willed children.

They say you should reach for your dreams. This time, they’re wrong…

Childhood sweethearts Kinna and Jimmy Henley had simple dreams—marriage, children, a house by the sea…everything they needed for happily ever after. What they didn’t plan on was years of infertility, stealing those dreams, crushing their hopes.

Now, all that’s left is the memory of young love, and the desperate need for a child to erase the pain. Until…

Kinna rescues an elderly woman from the sea, and the threads of the past, present, and future weave together to reveal the wonder of one final hope. One final chance to follow not their dreams, but God’s.

Can they embrace the redemptive power of love before it’s too late? Or will their love be washed away like the castles they once built upon the sand? The past whispers to the present. And the future shivers. What if tomorrow never comes?
