"The book is raw and real. Jim takes the reader into the depths of darkness, abuse, dysfunction, and secrets. However, he doesn’t leave the reader in the valley. The book dips down into the depths of darkness and then lifts the reader to a new level of life and living. It is painful, practical, and powerful."
"Hope Is Where the Heart Is offers a new paradigm for creating healthy relationships. Jim’s vivid storytelling transported me into his world of dimples, dents, and dings in a refreshingly transparent way, breaking free from traditionalism and propelling the reader into self-examination and transformation. I recommend this book to anyone wanting a stronger relationship and to those who have been wounded by another—especially if you are losing or have lost hope."
"Hope is the earnest expectation of a brighter tomorrow. Jim and Shannon share their personal journey in this hard-hitting book, sharing their challenges and struggles to hold their covenant of marriage together. When faith seemed lost and love seemed to have let go, hope stood firm. This book is for those whose situations look bleak and are wondering if there is still a chance for their marriage to make it. It’s message of hope is truly where the heart is."
