Hello! My name is Jennifer Sands, and I welcome you and thank you for visiting my website. I pray that as you explore this site, you will find hope, encouragement, and inspiration.

My husband, Jim Sands, was killed in the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. Back then, no one could have convinced me that I would recover from losing Jim, or that I'd ever be functional again. But I have since learned that God can do amazing things -- things that I never could have imagined. Before 9/11, I did not know Jesus as my Lord and Savior... but by His abounding love and grace, I have since undergone a radical spiritual transformation. I am now determined to spread the Gospel and a message of overcoming trials -- and living everyday life -- through faith and trust in Christ and in the power of His Word.

If you've ever been through the pain of adversity and found yourself thinking, this can't be happening..., then I have encouragement for you. If you've ever searched for answers to life's toughest questions, then I have wisdom to share with you. If you've ever desired the most valuable riches, then I have a priceless treasure to offer you.

My favorite Bible verse is Jeremiah 29:11, which says, "For I know the plans I have for you," says the Lord, "Plans to prosper you and not to harm you;  plans to give you hope and a future."   And indeed He had plans for me -- He has plans for all of us. I was (and still am) a pharmacist; but after September 11, God brought forth a Christian writing and speaking ministry as a way for me to serve Him.  I am the author of three books: My first book,  A Tempered Faithcandidly details my emotional and spiritual struggles (and eventual triumph) in the first year after losing Jim.  In my second book, A Teachable Faith, the journey continues as I share how God uses His Word and everyday circumstances to teach us, heal us, and give us a greater understanding of Him.  My third book, A Treasured Faithis my account of the wealth discovered when we dig deeply into the Bible and into our soul; and I also share some of my experiences in my battle with breast cancer. A Treasured Faith completes the "ATF" trilogy which tracks the progression of my spiritual growth; however, each of the three books has been cleverly written as a stand-alone book. So wherever you are in your faith journey, there is an "ATF" book that will speak to your heart, encourage you in your trials, and challenge you to grow in the grace and knowledge of God and His Word.

Jesus is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Will you allow Him to help you in your struggles?

This is not only about September 11 or the loss of someone dear. This is about broken marriages...health problems... financial crisis... the loss of our dreams... we all encounter burdens and trials and heartaches and challenges. Do you trust God to bring you through yours?

Perhaps I can help you (or someone you know) through God's promises in the Bible and through the testimony of my own experience. I would love to come speak for your church or at your retreat... or perhaps my books might inspire a hurting heart. 

So I invite you to review my books and read sample excerpts, find out where I'll be speaking, watch a video clip of one of my programs, take a look at some feedback from others, read the article from Homelife Magazine, and find links to helpful organizations for people in crisis.

Wherever you are in your walk with the Lord, I pray that you will take the steps to get closer to Him and to spend more time in His Word.  I pray that if you have not already invited Jesus into your heart and asked Him to be the Lord of your life, that you will do so today. And I pray that you will always remember: God will not permit a trial to come upon us unless He has a plan to bring a blessing out of it!

 By God's grace, for His glory, and in His service --

 Jennifer
