The journey that I have been on over the last several years has made me realize that I can’t live life in a bubble, I can’t survive without grace and I can’t thrive without the strength that God has given to me. As a believer in Jesus Christ as my Savior I feel that we need to reach out to each other. To be the hands and feet of God in this world. I have been praying for God’s leading on that path. In the meantime I wanted to share several books and websites that have impacted my life. My very favorite book is by Joe Stowell. It is called “The Upside of Down”. It is about surviving and thriving after a loss in your life. It tells stories of others who have experienced a loss and gives a perspective on dealing with the different feelings and questions that will come up. I have given it away to several people and I have a copy that is dog-eared and written all over. It has been a comfort. I hope you find it helpful too! God Bless.
