Worst Case Scenario, Finding Overwhelming Rescue in the Promises of God, is one woman’s journey through compelling calls, plot twists, and transitions that led her family from urban San Diego to life in the rural mountains of Lesotho, Africa and the Great Rift Valley of Kenya. Michelle Gennaro Lapp has finally chronicled the intimate details of her marriage to her college sweetheart, the growth of their family through birth and adoption, their call to Africa, and then the unfolding of the most profound loss of her life. Her moving memoir gives readers an intimate glimpse into her darkest thoughts, deepest prayers, and greatest victories. Excerpts from the pages of her prayer journals reveal the personal and providential care and love of God, and His faithfulness to keep His promises to bring beauty from the ashes. Come along, and find comfort and hope for life’s unexpected tribulations.
Michelle Gennaro Lapp (B.A., M.Ed) serves as the Southwest Mobilizer for Africa Inland Mission, but her life and professional experiences encompass speaking, teaching, writing, church ministry, and cross-cultural missions. Living, working, serving in Africa, and parenting married, widowed, and blended has shaped her, but her journey through suffering has deepened her walk with Jesus and expanded her call. Her training includes coaching and debriefing and she accepts invitations to speak and minister on a wide scope of inspirational, biblical topics. She lives in San Diego, California with her husband Brent and a diminishing number of their eight combined adult children. Michelle believes she has been “comforted to be a comfort” and can be reached at michellegennarolapp.com.
