We all experience fear, shame, loneliness, broken homes, or broken hearts. We all hurt and need true, lasting healing. The trouble, according to bestselling author Andrew Farley and Bart Millard, lead singer of MercyMe, is that we don’t know where to find it.
Inspired by MercyMe’s #1 hit song of the same name, The Hurt & The Healer reveals exactly how God can be the gentle healer of all our hurts. Writing from the pain they’ve experienced in their lives, Millard and Farley reveal how their own struggles caused them to feel they had disappointed God. Through their biblical guidance, readers will see that God wants them to be open and honest about their pain. Only then can they discover how to exchange destructive thinking patterns for God’s view of them and watch as God’s perfect love casts away all their fears.

So here’s the deal Seattle. Guess what we did today. Yep, when you’re in Seattle, what else makes sense except Seattle By Segway. I mean, who wouldn’t do that right?
Seriously though. What an amazing town, an amazing day and an amazing crowd. This is hands down one of our favorite places to come and tonight was no exception. Thanks for making tonight so cool. You guys always deliver.
Spokane, here we come.
Boise. We love coming here. You guys are always so great. We’re hitting our stride on this tour and it’s almost over. This thing has gone by way too fast.
Tonight we did have a very special guest. Naghmeh Abedini, who’s husband Saeed is imprisoned in Iran for sharing the Gospel, came and shared a bit of her story. Unbelievably moving and humbling. You guys can find out more abou Saeed HERE.
We’re currently on the bus headed for Portland, OR. One of our favorite cities. We’ll see you in a few hours Portland.
World Arena, Colorado Springs we love visiting you people. We know school was closed today, but you guys blew us away and made tonight a special night.
Today Bart and I had a chance to go up in a helicopter tour and take a look at your amazing city so if you saw a blue helicopter flying over you, that was us. What a beautiful area. Colorado, you are one of our favorites.
We’ll see you again soon.
Another great night in Louisiana. You guys know how to worship. Thanks for letting us be a part of that. Thanks for keeping things civil with the protestors outside and showing them that we serve a God that loves people regardless of themselves.
We’ve had some of our boys out for the past few days so our bus smells a bit like a 7 year old boy, but it’s been some amazing father-son time for us all.
We’re headed home for a few days, then on to Colorado Springs. If we remember anything about Colorado Springs, it’s the insane line that shows up right before the show. Make sure to get there early on Thursday to get inside. It’s going to be awesome.
We’ll see you again Baton Rouge.
