From the Back Cover
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.

"Practical, real-world steps from a fresh, biblical perspective not only to endure unique life struggles but also to triumph over them. Donna empowers you to take on life's challenges with sincere gratitude and liberating resilience."--Lance Plyler, MD, medical director, Division of World Medical Mission, Samaritan's Purse
