“Great book so far, easy to read because it feels like Lucy’s just talking. So proud of both of you for the transparency and strength to share! Very humbling read. This book will impact lives, and those testimonies are the best ones because it makes you real. Seriously, great book and great testimony! I’ve read it twice through just to make sure I didn’t miss anything. Super easy read, but very convicting in a good way. Thanks to you both for sharing!” -George W.
“What a wonderful, heartfelt, completely open and honest book. Lucy wrote from the heart and held nothing back. Her faith in God’s love is what brought her through all of life’s trials and setbacks. Very encouraging and uplifting.”
“I just finished Through the Fire and loved it. I’ve known Lucy and her husband Richard since High School and thought I knew them, until reading Lucy’s story. Her ability to share at the deepest level is inspiring and helped me look at relationships in a new light. It’s a book for both men and woman to use a tool in examining their own lives and being empathetic and caring for others who may be hurting and not even know it. Take the time to read Through the Fire and reconnect with yourself and the ones you love.” -John A.
“I want to thank you for sharing your story. This book has opened and touched my heart deeply. You will continue to touch lives and show marriages on what is possible. I can’t tell you how courageous and inspiring you are, Lucy! This book is true healing for marriages, finding inner peace and strength with Jesus when life’s challenges take over, so beautifully good! You are a blessing lady, thank you for your vulnerability for sharing and for the hope you have in others. A must read, especially for the broken hearted.” -Julie K.
“Lucy, I haven’t been able to put your book down! Nice work. I’m re-reading and sharing parts with my husband. You and Richard show so much humility to be able to share something so raw and relatable. I love your journey with Christ. He truly is everything and in everything. Every time you quote Isaiah, I think about how he’s an artist like you, so maybe that’s why you can share his words so easily. Good work, Lucy, and good work to Richard and your daughters.”
“I love how transparent Lucy and Richard are in Through the Fire. To see them being transformed by the power of prayer is really inspiring to me. I would recommend any marriage going through something difficult to get this book and read it together. Also, I would suggest to apply the daily prayer Richard and Lucy pray every morning as their daily routine. Richard has a chapter in this every husband should read. Powerful story the both tell in this book.” -Luis S.

Wishing you a great success! I know all who read it will be enriched.” -Cindy V.
“Lucy’s story is honest, heartfelt and encouraging! She managed to keep some very personal, dark stories from being too heavy on the reader, but yet, still conveyed the deep pain and struggle, followed by the incredible journey and victory through God’s love, teaching, protection and grace. So many of her stories parallel my own life and allowed me to connect to this book like no other. This is a beautiful story of God’s beautiful love and redemption, and a wonderful read!” -Linda O.
“Lucy Dickens has written a book with such honesty and vulnerability, yet so full of hope and the miracle of God’s promise to love and redeem us.

It’s sooooo worth it!!” -Christine M.
