I Can Do Hard Things With God

"We talk of emergency preparedness for the big earthquakes or world events. More often, it is the personal trials that hit close to home that are the most difficult. If we wait to prepare spiritually until the storm hits, we may find ourselves blown over . . .The question is not “Will I face challenges?” but rather, “How will I deal with challenges when they come?” I Can Do Hard Things with God is an inspiring collection of essays by a variety of LDS women who have confronted this very question."

Just look at these chapter titles and who the contributors are:

* Suicide: No More Hiding by Ganel-Lyn Condie

* Chronic Illness: An Essay about Being Sick. Very Sick. For a Very Long Time by Kylie Turley

* Blindness: Seeing with a Disability by Kris Belcher

* Financial Stressors: Will You Be Poor for Me? by Andrea Palmer

* Life after Depression, Divorce, and Bankruptcy by Barbara Mathews

* Choosing Charity When Children Choose a Different Path by Alice Ann Weber

* Death of a Baby: The Miracle and Memory of Little Madilyn by Heather Hodge

* Infertility: He Did for Me What I Could Not Do for Myself by Carrie Ann Oscarson Rhodes

* Living with Bipolar Depression and Anxiety by Elizabeth Harris

* Spouse's Mental Illness: You're the One Who's Bipolar, So How Come I'm Going Crazy? by Laryssa Waldron

* Singlehood by Betsy Ferguson

"They offer glimpses into lives that have been uplifted and enriched through stalwart preparation and unwavering faith, and readers will come to understand that they too can rely on God’s grace to strengthen them in their adversity."

Do any of these resonate with you?
Do you know someone in a similar situation?


Author Shelly Locke finalizes the book with her chapter on Adversity: The Mark of Gold upon Our Souls.

She eloquently shares with us why we have adversity, why it seems to be everywhere in this day and age, the purpose of it, and what we can do about it.

She reminds us that we have a loving Heavenly Father who not only loves us, but blesses us.

She teaches us that "if we manage our trials wisely, they become our friend, the means by which the answers to life's mysteries will come."

With powerful testimony she bears witness that there is hope.

This book is SO NEEDED!
The timing is NOW!
