Let your faith empower you,
This review is from: Stronger Through Christ (Paperback)
There are times in life when people will find themselves sorely tested by the trials and tribulations of ordinary life. However, it is when someone is face to face with a life or death situation especially pertaining to their health that the real tests begin. Stronger through Christ by author Ami-Dark Rosen is a nonfiction book of her memoirs about her battle for her life and how she handles the trials and tribulations in her life that test her daily.
Determined to be diabetic at the tender age of five, Ami has struggled and continues to struggle with many, many health issues related to her Diabetes diagnosis and debilitating illness but the amazing thing about Ami is that she has a powerful will, is a warm loving person and has a strong faith in God which has fortified her throughout her life. Ami has faced many hurdles with her health including being comatose resulting from multi system failure while in her twenties, suffering from kidney failure (more than once) and having to go through two kidney transplants, not to mention the daily struggles of monitoring her blood sugar and giving herself insulin injections. Also Ami has suffered through a failing marriage, divorce, losing her ability to walk and take care of her adopted daughter Luckily for Ami besides having the moxie and faith in the lord to deal with all the afore mentioned stressors, she also has been blessed with a loving and caring family that supports her.
The one thing that really struck me about this book is the strong faith that Ami projects through her writing, she always expresses gratitude and has the uncanny ability to consider the bright side of almost every occurrence in her life as a blessing and is very forgiving. I believe that many other people when confronted with a similar situation may not be able to face things as Ami has and continues to. Ami is a strong person and sets the example as a good Christian for all to witness. Although sometimes very sad I enjoyed reading Stronger through Christ because it is well written and Ami uses a down to earth tone that makes you feel like you are talking with a good friend rather than just reading a book. If anyone thinks their life is really bad they should read this book it will change your mind and make you feel grateful for your blessings especially, your health. I highly recommend this book as a life lesson for all to read.
