"It's not a matter of whether we'll encounter difficulty in life;it's a matter of when and how. And even more important is how we respond. Donna Gibbs has helped many people get through rough seasons in life, and she shares a number of key concepts in this book to guide you toward becoming a more resilient person."-- Greg Smalley, vice president, Marriage and Family Formation, Focus on the Family
At some point, we all suffer disappointment, rejection, injustice, and loss. Such suffering can paralyze us, leaving us broken inside and merely going through the motions outside. Whether we remain stuck in these negative patterns or move forward is determined in large part by our resilience.
A professional counselor for twenty years, Donna Gibbs shares the secrets of building resilience that will change your experience of suffering. She offers practical tools and effective coping strategies to deal with whatever life throws your way so you can move through suffering--and come out stronger on the other side.
