“Be inspired by this poignant account of one woman’s struggle for health and faith—and the tireless devotion of family. Smiling Again is a compelling read with something for everyone . . . Expect to be encouraged, perhaps cry, and even smile as you follow Sally on her journey of healing and rediscovery.” —Peter DeHaan, PhD
From the Back Cover
Sally Stap was in the midst of a busy and successful 25-yearcareer in Information Technology, juggling the usual concerns about job, daughters,and life, when the unthinkable happened: she was diagnosed with an acousticneuroma, a benign but large brain tumor.
Written with a poignant blend of honesty, dry humor, faith, andinquisitiveness, Smiling Again is a story of the persistence of life and beautyin spite of pain. Sally recounts the shock of diagnosis, a long and painfulrecovery from invasive brain surgery, her eventual retirement due todisability, and ultimately contentment and acceptance of a new life journey.
For caregivers and survivors, Sally shares practical lessons andtips that will help you find your own signposts of faith along a treacherousbut ultimately exhilarating journey, including:
-Be optimistic, but don't discount possible outcomes just becausethey don't sound fun.
-Allow yourself to grieve because there is a new you.
-A sense of humor will give you a better temperament thanfrustration.
Whether you are a brain tumor survivor or are facing anotherexperience that has brought you to the end of yourself, Sally's experienceshows that even when the worst happens, God is present and visible in sometimesunexpected ways. The future you may not be the same as the old you, but it canlead you in new and rewarding directions.
