If you're facing hard times, if all seems lost, this book will give you the courage to press on to a better tomorrow. These reflections from saints and writers who suffered, who were tempted to despair, who were tested in every way—but who never gave up—will help you gain the insight you need to live confidently in the Lord no matter what your circumstance. This book includes one hundred and twenty quotes from writers across the centuries designed to inspire readers to persevere in the face of suffering. It offers suggestions for embracing the cross, turning to prayer, helping others, trusting God, and so forth. Amy Welborn's foreword reflects her moving toward and clinging to hope following the sudden death of her husband. Foreword by Amy Welborn.
