 About the Book 

Adversity is a teacher---a pretty rugged one, but the best. I dont care if there is some lesson in this, your spirit screams, I just want the pain to stop! It is natural to recoil from pain, but there is no way to go but through- there is no wayMoreAdversity is a teacher---a pretty rugged one, but the best. I dont care if there is some lesson in this, your spirit screams, I just want the pain to stop! It is natural to recoil from pain, but there is no way to go but through- there is no way around. Regardless of how willingly or unwillingly we move through it, move through it we will. And on the other side, when the trial has passed, new strength and wisdom will be waiting. We are not permitted to choose whether we will face trials---only how we will face them. Whether we give up or endure, whether we become bitter or more compassionate, is our decision. Pain is inevitable- suffering is optional. Tribulation is mandatory, but misery is a choice.Tragedy in life does not have to mean a life of tragedy. A bend in the road is not the end of the road. In truth, that which appears to be the end may really be a new beginning.In the bitter chill of adversity we find the true test of our faith. Cheryl Carson speaks to those who struggle with adversity while striving to believe in a God of loving purpose. She offers an understanding of Gods purposes and promises, attesting that though weeping may endure for a night. . .joy cometh in the morning.
