A Place Called Blessing
Full Product Description
Five-year-old Josh and his two older brothers lose their parents in a drunk-driving accident. A series of foster homes and a shocking tragedy eventually separate them, leaving Josh alone, angry, and distrustful of most everyone. At age eighteen, Josh strikes out on his own to find work. With only a high school education and few life skills, he is one step away from homelessness when Providence brings him to a place where he finds much more than physical shelter. For the first time in his life, Josh receives unconditional love and something every human being craves, the gift of "the blessing."
Includes an introduction and reader's guide designed to identify and discuss the five elements of the biblical blessing that every person needs. Readers are shown, through the power of Josh's story, how to give this gift to their children and others as outlined in the more than one million copy bestseller, The Blessing.
"If you've ever doubted your ability to be a vessel of grace and healing in the life of someone who's hurting, you need to read A Place Called Blessing. It is the story of a wounded soul named Josh, but chances are there is a Josh living next door to you or even sitting near you in the pew at church."—Jim Daly, president, Focus on the Family
The life-changing message of the relational classic, The Blessing—now in compelling story form. Complete with a reader's guide to help you identify and apply the five elements of the biblical blessing to your own life and relationships.

A Place Called BlessingJohnny Douglas, via The Good Book Stall
An orphaned boy’s story of loss, love, and eventual acceptance by the most unlikely people, is the core of a piece of fiction. The story chronicles the life of Josh, an emotionally abandoned little boy who loses his mother and father and is separated from two brothers. He is shuffled through the foster care system, unpacking his scant belongings at many houses, but never staying long due to his deep-seated fears and issues. At six years old, when it finally seems as though Josh might be forever reunited with his brothers, an unfortunate accident changes the course of his life.
Through adolescence Josh often acts out in anger and trusts no one, but through the first person narrative the reader gets to see a glimpse of the broken little boy who so desperately wants to be loved. As Josh turns eighteen he rents a room from a mother and son who turn out to be the family he is so desperately searching for. The journey they take together is painful and difficult, but Josh eventually finds the peace he seeks.
I very much appreciated the message of this book, especially the inside look at orphaned children and the foster care system. There is ache and honesty in this journey of themes surrounding foster care or adoption. It gives the reader a thoughtful portrayal, from a child’s perspective.
