Quick Overview

“Letting your sinful nature [Satan] control your mind leads

to death. But letting the spirit control your mind

leads to life and peace” (Rom. 8:6, NLT).

Nineteen-year-old Lindsey found herself at a Bible retreat desperate to hear something- anything- that would make her want to live. As the music played and the speaker claimed they could all be “free in Christ, right here, right now,” Lindsey silently screamed, How? How can I be free in Christ right now, when all my life I’ve heard that answer at church, and it hasn’t fixed me yet?

She left.  

Headed to the computer lab on campus.

And sat down to write her suicide note.

In Ending the Pain, Lindsey Gendke examines some of the tough questions most of us don’t ask out loud. She addresses the lies that are whispered and believed by too many hearts and minds, by good Christians, in good Christian homes.  

Ending the Pain is the compelling account of a young woman’s journey from desperation to hope. It traces how she moved away from the destructive lies that crippled her faith toward the only Truth that could set her free. Lindsey’s story will resonate with anyone who has ever felt overwhelmed, discouraged, or tired of playing church.

The chances are high you already know someone facing this same struggle.

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY:

Lindsey Gendke


Lindsey Gendke has been a writer, wife, teacher, and mom, in that order for the past thirty years. From a young age Lindsey wanted to write books, and after navigating a broken family, suicide attempt, and decade-long depression, God gave her the story that became Ending the Pain. Today her passion is sharing her testimony through writing, as well as encouraging women she meets in her new role as a stay-at-home mom. Lindsey holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in English and has taught English at the high school and college levels. You can read a shorter version of her testimony in her first book, The Hidden Half of the Gospel: How His Suffering Can Heal Yours. Lindsey lives in Missouri with her husband, Buc, and their sons, Sam and Seth, and she blogs at www.lindseygendke.com.
