First one ranch hand, then two, and then her brother Mitch fall ill. Mother is convinced that the only way to protect Andi from this terrible disease is to send her far away to fussy Aunt Rebecca in San Francisco. The noisy city and Aunt Rebecca’s bossy ways may be worse than scarlet fever. But then Andi has an idea that might help save her friends back home.

Fears. Faults. Failures. Frailties. Every woman at some point wonders, Do I have to get past all my weaknesses before God can use me?
Wendy Pope is happy to tell readers: No! You don’t have to overcome, correct, rise above, or get strong before you are qualified to be part of God’s plan. He can use you right now. You are a worthwhile possibility.
In Hidden Potential, readers see that they can be:
*faithful, even in fear
*included in God’s plans, even in weaknesses
*worth something, even in failure
*valuable, even in pain
Pope explores the life of a fearful murderer on the run with a speech problem and daddy issues–also known as Moses–to show readers God’s power and grace. As she writes, God will never count anyone out as long as they count themselves as His children.
Hidden Potential includes discussion, reflection, and Bible study questions, challenges to take readers further in their faith, and real-life stories from other women to remind readers they are not alone.
