For the Tired, Burned Out, Frustrated Christian

Saint Louis, MO—Feeling “dehydrated from the inside out” following a heartbreaking season in her life, Concordia Publishing House author Donna Pyle began journaling to return to God’s living waters. The thoughts and prayers that emerged as Pyle wrote in her journal resulted in her latest book, Quenched: Christ’s Living Water for a Thirsty Soul, which is set to reach bookstores this summer.

Pyle recalls being physically, emotionally, and spiritually drained during that dark season. But she knew she was not alone. She knew that God’s loving arms were always draped around her. Being called to faith in early adulthood, she understands how the world can tear people down. Pyle takes great comfort now, walking in faith for more than 20 years.

“I realized that many Christians—whether brand new or long-time Christians—endure such dehydrating seasons,” says the author. “This book offers practical insight based on Scripture and personal experience of how we reconnect to our Source of living water.”

The book is a direct result of “God’s immeasurable grace,” Pyle says. “I never forget that He alone has placed this writing journey before me. The fact that He chooses to use the messiest portions of my life to shine His light the brightest provides such a beautiful reflection of our loving Redeemer, who promises to bring beauty from the ashes.”

It does not matter what the circumstances are surrounding our difficult or painful season, Pyle says, adding, “Regardless of how far we believe we have strayed, or which of the world’s wells we choose to dive into to find relief, God’s living water alone faithfully and completely quenches our soul’s thirst.”

Quenched is available now for pre-order. For more information, to set up a book review, or to request an interview with the author, contact Beth Behrhorst, Public Relations, 314-268-1294, or send an email to
