Life is hard. You don't need a book to tell you that. But wouldn't it be nice if you knew how to begin facing life's challenges so you came out the winner once in a while? There are plenty of self-help books out there that teach coping mechanisms and push 'positive thinking'. This is not one of those books. While there is a place for positive thinking, the truth is that if you want to have a wonderful life, it takes work. Heart work. Think of this book as a conversation, a testimony, and a word of encouragement that most of us will be able to relate to because life is hard. Hopefully, this book will help you learn that you are not defined by what happens to you, but instead that you can choose how those events will be defined by your response.
Jeff has faced challenges with his health, in his personal life, and in his ministry and work life. He's been a victim, but he's never let circumstances keep him victimized. Jeff has worked in ministry for over thirty years, and in that time, he's noticed that a lot of people struggled with finding contentment regardless of their circumstances. Numerous times, people told him his outlook on life encouraged them, and that his example often meant more to them than any sermon he could preach. Recently, he felt that God was telling him to share some of what he's been through and the lessons he's learned about what it means to lead a blessed and wonderful life. This book is that message.
