What People are Saying about Trials of Today, Treasures for Tomorrow
Like Talking to an Old Friend
Janet Eckles’ inspirational book is a straightforward telling of a fascinating life. In a factual book that reads like great fiction, Janet Eckles takes us on a journey through the fires that forged her. Each challenge she faced might be enough to defeat any one of us. But Eckles puts her struggles into the hands of God and instead of being crushed, the pressure has turned her into a gem.
Written in a warm, informal style, the book reads almost like talking to an old friend. It will pull you in and compel you to find out what happens next to this courageous woman, and how she finds a way to turn it all over to God and go on living life to the fullest.
The story itself is enough, losing her sight, losing a child, nearly losing her husband. But Eckles takes us deeper with a study guide at the end of the book, helping us to find the Lord in every situation. Trials of Today, Treasures for Tomorrow will help each reader to understand that we must turn our lives over to God or our victories will destroy us as surely as our defeats.

An Inspiring Message of Hope for Those Who Face Heartache
Jan Eckles shares with you her personal pain and triumph in order to help you learn how to overcome your own adversities…While Jan was in her early 30s, something tragic happened that would change her life forever. She began to lose her eyesight. In the chapter, Living in Darkness, she describes the shock she felt when her doctor first told her that she was going to gradually lose all ability to see. At the time, she was the mother of three active boys, and it was terrifying to not be able to see them anymore.
The day came when she realized it was too dangerous for her to drive her own car, and she mourned the loss of independence of being able to drive her sons to their sporting events and activities.
Yet because of her suffering, Jan realized that her physical lack of sight was nothing compared to her spiritual darkness. She shares her amazing testimony in the chapter, Salvation. Jan’s vision may have diminished, but her heart began to see things she’d never understood before.
She writes, “Climbing slowly out of this dark and cold place, I began to walk with Him, warmed by the light of His Word. My heart began to fill with peace, a peace beyond what I could understand.” I couldn’t put this book down. Jan’s faith inspired mine in so many ways. Her storytelling techniques drew me in completely, and she has the gift of telling truth in love that so many people need to hear. I would give this book to anyone who is going through a difficult transition or loss in life. The author shares how the truths in scripture set her free from a life of feeling sorry for herself. She relies on hope in God to give her an inward joy that is contagious.

No words can describe how I felt when I read this book. It’s captivating, encouraging and uplifting…It’s a book to turn to when you are at your lowest because it will bring you right back up knowing that GOD loves you and uses whatever He needs to and lights your way out of the darkness and into His light. I’m definitely going to read it again & again.
